Salt Cave

Our pink salt is formed from ancient oceans more than 200 million years ago. These underground formations have been protected from modern-day pollution leading to the belief that Himalayan pink salt is the purest salt to be found on the earth. The many hues of pink, red and white are an indication of the salts rich mineral and energy-rich iron content. Himalayan salt is a crystal consisting of 95-99% sodium chloride and trace minerals including potassium, iron, sulfate, magnesium, calcium, bicarbonate, bromide, strontium, and fluoride. The purity and mineral content of this natural salt may bring a wealth of health and beauty benefits. A healing and relaxing experience for the mind, body, and soul.

The word halotherapy comes from the Greek word “hals,” for salt. Halotherapy is a modern yet natural method made possible by a special device called a halogenerator, which micronizes disperses and controls concentrations of very finely ground salt particles into a salt room where clients breathe in the dry salt-saturated air while relaxing in comfortable chairs.

Halotherapy simulates the natural microclimate of salt mines/caves, yet does so in the comfort of accessible, above-ground spas and wellness facilities. The term was introduced in the late 1980s by scientists of the Institute of Pulmonology in St. Petersburg, Russia who rigorously studied the characteristics of numerous natural salt caves known for providing therapeutic benefits. Their pioneering work resulted in the development of the first above-ground artificial salt cave.

The case for halotherapy has by now been well documented. A large body of research has been conducted into its safety and efficacy, and reports can be found in several medical journals as well as magazines for the general public. A growing number of people seeking drug-free relief from respiratory and skin problems are beginning to be able to find it in wellness centers, spas that have added salt rooms, and new spas devoted solely to halotherapy.
