Upon entering a salt cave you will instantly feel the calming, soothing effects. The treatment involves relaxing and or meditating as you sit and breathe, absorbing the minerals through your breath and your skin. You can also enjoy yoga or massage in the salt cave. We recommend 2 -3 sessions a week to experience the full healing effects, once symptoms subside we recommend 2-3 sessions a month for long lasting health.
WHAT IS SALT CAVE THERAPY? Himalayan Salt Rocks are placed inside the Graduation Tower (water fall), the water breaks down the salt turning it into micro-particles that fill the air, as you breathe and absorb through your skin you experience all the incredible health benefits.
Breathing in the himalayan salt immediately sparks an anti inflammatory response and starts to break up the built up mucosal lining, increasing lung capacity, allowing your respiratory system to heal. Whether it is the high altitude, asthma, COPD, allergies, bronchitis or other respiratory infections or issues, the inhalation of high quality himalayan salt will improve your respiratory health.
Absorbing the salt particles through your skin has the same anti inflammatory response as well as anti bacterial properties, rapidly healing issues such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne and overall rashes. The salt also allows your skin to hydrate better helping achieve anti aging benefits.
As the salt makes its way deep to the cellular level you start to achieve the detoxification benefits. Himalayan salt is not only anti inflammatory but also a natural disinfectant, it is anti fungal, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral and more, this means once the salt gets into your cells, the cell will naturally flush these foreign unwanted particles, allowing a deep detox that is also beneficial for your immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. Treatments are especially recommended to help keep the body healthy during flu or allergy seasons.
At the same time, once the salt gets deep into your cells it provides and nourishes you with 84 trace minerals, It contains the same 84 minerals that we hold in the human body. Improving mineral levels also improves hydration and this is extremely beneficial for aching joints and muscles, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and all autoimmune conditions.
In addition to all this the salt is negative ions, in daily life we are surrounded by positive ions that can cause stress, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, depression. Sitting in the cave, surrounded by such a large quantity of negative ions, draws out these positive ions, allowing deep relaxation and a sense of calm.
