All sessions are 45 minutes long and begin on the hour every hour.


What can I expect during the Salt Cave session?

A dry throat is sometimes experienced; this is a normal effect of the dry aerosol created by the salt generator. This aerosol consists of micro sized salt particles which serve to break up mucus and have anti-inflammatory properties. Some guests become drowsy during a session, we encourage taking a nap.


How does Salt/Halotherapy work?

Aside from the the already rich Himalayan Salt, a salt generator crushes pharmaceutical grade salt into micron-sized dry aerosol particles that are inhaled. Salt/Halotherapy is based on salt’s natural anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory properties and the negative ions it produces. The rich negative ion effect can be felt in nature in places like the ocean, near waterfalls and in pine forests. Our micro climate of negative ions and abundant minerals and elements packs the benefits of two days at the ocean into a 45 minute session. In this day and age we are exposed to a barrage of electromagnetic fields that produce positive ions such as from TV’s, cell phones, computers, power lines, appliances, etc. Himalayan salt’s natural production of negative ions benefits the whole body system and combats the effects of free radicals (positive ions) from our environment.


How often should I do the Salt Cave?

A session will last 45 minutes. For mild to moderate respiratory conditions 10 to 12 sessions are recommended, depending on individual results. For best results the sessions should be 1-2 times per week. Since everybody responds differently to therapy, this is provided as an average upon which to gauge your personal experience. After that, once every two weeks for maintenance is recommended.
