You must arrive ten to fifteen minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. This will give you time to get checked in, visit the restroom, and put on the required footwear. Once a salt cave session has started, we will not interrupt the session for late arrivals.
If possible, please provide a 24-hour notice if you must cancel a session.
Wear comfortable clothing to ensure a relaxing session. The Salt Cave maintains a temperature of 68 degrees with low humidity. Clean blankets are provided to help offset the chill. We will provide foot covers that are required to be worn. We encourage clients to walk around on the salt pebbles, before the session officially starts or at the conclusion of the session for the added benefit of reflexology.
No food or drink is permitted in the Salt Cave. If there is a medical condition that demands the use of water during the session, accommodations can be made. We provide water before and/or after each session and highly encourage everyone to increase their water intake for 24 hours after each session.
The Salt Cave was designed to help you leave your worries behind with the aid of soft back lighting from the Himalayan Salt, peaceful music, and comfortable Zero Gravity lounge chairs with fresh blankets provided. We encourage this quiet time to be used for relaxation or meditation. This will ensure a quality experience for all in attendance. Electronics are not permitted in the cave.
Regular salt cave sessions are 45 minutes long and begin on the hour every hour. There are times when 30 minute sessions will be scheduled to allow people to attend on their lunch hour. Twice each month, we will offer a 90 minute salt cave session. Check our monthly calendar to find out when these special sessions will be taking place.
A dry throat is sometimes experienced; this is a normal effect of the halogenerator. These microscopic pharmaceutical salt particles serve to break up mucus and have anti-inflammatory properties.
Arriving 10-15 prior to your session is imperative, as once the session has begun, out of respect for those already enjoying the effects, we do not interrupt the session that has started. If you cannot arrive on time, we will need to reschedule for the next available opening.
*All sessions are 45 minutes long and begin every hour on the hour.
Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy (Greek: Halos – salt; therapy – treatment) originated in salt caves and mines. Salt therapy has been used for centuries and recently more and more studies have been done to better understand how it works.
Aside from the the already rich Himalayan Salt, which is the only salt to boast the 84 elements our body consists of, a salt generator also pumps a pharmaceutical grade salt comprised of 99.8% NaCl (Sodium Chloride) into microscopic dry aerosol particles that are inhaled. This salt has anti-inflammatory properties which open the airways and reduce or eliminate mucus from the lungs.
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. Our climate of negative ions and abundant minerals and elements packs the benefits of three 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 positive ions from our environment.
Anyone can benefit thanks to Salt/Halotherapy’s mood and immune enhancing effects. More specifically, Salt/Halotherapy can be a great benefit to those who suffer from the following conditions: Allergies, Asthma, Acne, Immune System Deficiencies, Respiratory Conditions, Bronchitis, Cystic Fibrosis, Cold and Flu, Cough, Infections, Eczema, Emphysema, Nasal Congestion, Psoriasis, Sinus Infections, Snoring, Sore Throat (in addition to many others).
As everybody responds differently to salt/Halotherapy, you will need to gauge this based upon your personal experience. Some people will come multiple times per week while others will come once per week.
We recommend that you consult with your doctor or physician if you have any concerns before starting Salt/Halotherapy. People not advised to do Salt/Halotherapy are those experiencing: infections accompanied by fever, active tuberculosis, bleeding, spitting of blood, alcohol and/or drug intoxication.
