Himalayan Salt Cave Experience
First Visit | $20/Person Single Session | $35/Person
Unlimited Month | $90/Person
During a 45-minute session, our guests will relax in our custom-built salt room completely surrounded by hand-picked Himalayan salt rock crystals. Tranquil music and ambient lighting will contribute to the ultimate relaxation experience. For seating, there are zero gravity chairs that distribute your weight when sat in therefore relieving stress on certain joints and other parts of the body. A halogenerator crushes pharmaceutical grade salt into small particles, creating a dry salt-air environment. This treatment is called halotherapy and aids in upper respiratory health. Guests with asthma, allergies, or any congestion will feel a difference after just one treatment! The salt cave can fit up to 5 guests comfortably for a group session.

What is Salt Therapy?
Salt Therapy, also called halotherapy, is a medical and scientific sound method that recreates the microclimate of a salt cave. Dry salt aerosol is dispersed into a room where the walls and floor are covered with layers of Himalayan salt crystals. A negative ion and antibacterial environment is created by the layering of salt on the walls and floor. The dry salt aerosol is a key factor in the relief of symptoms for many health problems including respiratory and skin conditions. Please refer to our section for more information.
How does Salt Therapy work?
A machine called a halogenerator grinds salt to the size of 1-5 micrometers to produce a dry salt aerosol. The generator is placed on the outside wall of the salt room. While sitting in the room for 45 minutes the fine salt aerosol is able to travel to the deepest part of the lungs in addition to other parts of the respiratory tract. As salt enters the lungs and respiratory tract it dissolves bacteria and pollutants and works to expel mucous and open constricted airways.

Is Salt Therapy safe for children?
It is definitely safe for children. There are no potential harmful effects. The treatment is completely natural and in fact, children often respond to treatment faster than adults.
How many sessions do I need & how often should I go?
This varies widely among individuals, and the condition being treated is a big factor. In most medical studies the number suggested is at least twelve 45 minute sessions. Some conditions and milder symptoms will improve or dissipate within as few of five 45 minute sessions. You may have some relief after one session; however, for the best results we recommend a series of treatments. Those with chronic conditions most likely need to come 3 a week for the first 6-8 weeks. Those who come for stress relief and relaxation simply come as often as they like. For many conditions, after a series of sessions, symptoms subside and relief can last for several months before another session is needed. It can also be used as a preventative measure to strengthen the immune system against colds, cough, allergies, and sinusitis.
What should be worn when receiving therapy in The Salt Suite?
Basically, you want to be comfortable. Loose clothing that you can relax in is best. If you have a skin condition you may want to wear something that exposes more skin. For those without skin conditions such as (dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis)…these conditions are not contagious and cannot be passed from one person the other. The salt in the air will not harm or be noticeable on your clothes. You will be given disposable shoe coverings to slip over your feet or shoes.
In which cases should Salt Therapy be avoided?
Halotherapy is not recommended for individuals with the following conditions:
- EXISTENCE OR SUSPICION OF CANCER
- ANY KIND OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE
- ACUTE RESPIRATORY DISEASE
- CARDIAC INSUFFICIENCY
- CARDIAC AND CORONARY DISEASES
- COPD WITH 3RD STAGE OF CHRONIC LUNG INSUFFICIENCY
- COUGHING OF BLOOD/BLEEDING
- INFECTIONS ACCOMPANIED BY FEVER
- HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE/HYPERTENSION IN IIB STAGE
- ANY FORM OR STAGE OF TUBERCULOSIS
- CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE
- ALL INTERNAL DISEASES OF DECOMPENSATION
Isn't salt bad for you?
Consuming too much salt is linked to high blood pressure. With salt therapy, you are inhaling a dry salt aerosol which only enters your respiratory system not your digestive tract. The salt particles are so fine that even if you were to eat that amount it most likely will not pose a risk to your health.
Are there any side effects?
Typically there are none. Few individuals have experienced a slight throat tickle which can be treated with gargling warm to hot water. In cases with an individual that is highly sensitive they can experience slight skin irritation or red patches; however, they go away after a few sessions. If you experience increased coughing due to mucous buildup that means the salt therapy treatment is working. This is the body’s way of draining the mucous buildup.
Do I need to stop taking my medications to receive salt therapy?
No, it’s perfectly fine to continue your medications as needed and directed by your doctor. Because salt therapy is all-natural, it doesn’t have any interactive effects with medications. Individuals who undergo salt therapy sometimes find themselves less dependent on certain medications and their symptoms less frequent or severe.
How sterile is the salt room - could someone pick up germs?
Salt naturally absorbs bacteria. The walls and floor of the rooms at The Saltz Medical Spa are covered with pure Himalayan salt crystals which creates an almost sterile environment. In addition, our ventilation system works throughout the entire session to circulate the air in the room, exhausting used air out and clean, fresh air in. There is no recycling of air back into the salt cave. Chairs are wiped down frequently.
What kind of salt is used?
Only the finest quality of dry pharmaceutical grade salts are used, as this is the only salt used in medical studies. We do not use Himalayan salt in our generator due to metal contents found in the Himalayan salt and there are no medical studies substantiating the effectiveness of Himalayan salt for therapeutic value through the use of a Halo-generator. However our walls and floors are covered in pure Himalayan Salt and produce negative ions which are safe and you will not be inhaling any metals into the lungs. Contrary to popular belief, Himalayan salt is not actually 100% pure salt. Rather it is made of 98% pure salt and 2% trace minerals and metals.
What will my experience be like in the salt rooms?
You will enter a room where the walls and floor are covered in layers of Himalayan salt. In the salt cave you will have comfortable zero gravity chairs to relax in. The lights will dim and you can choose to listen to relaxing music, read a book or magazine (reading lights will be available to you), meditate, or simply rest. The temperature and humidity in the rooms are controlled to provide an optimal experience. You will find pure relaxation and tranquility away from your everyday stress leaving you rejuvenated and fully energized. You will notice a faint trace of salt on your lips after the session.
Can electronics be brought into the salt rooms?
You are free to bring your own portable electronic playing device at your own discretion into the salt cave, but we mandate that you use headsets as to not disturb others salt cave experience. The salt cave will have internet access. We strongly encourage that you place it in a pocket, under a piece of clothing or wrap in a plastic bag as we are not responsible for any damages incurred. We do not recommend you bring any form of electronic that has a fan attached. No cell phone conversations permitted and all phones must be silenced at all times in the salt cave. The Saltz Medical Spa is not responsible for any damages incurred to any portable electronic or cellular device inside the salt cave. The use of portable electronic device is at your own discretion and The Saltz Medical Spa neither encourages nor discourages the use of portable electronic devices.
Is there research to support Salt Therapy (Halotherapy)?
Salt therapy has been researched and studied in America, Western and Eastern Europe.
Do you get the same effect from going to the beach?
While going to the beach and breathing in the ocean’s salt air is great for the body, salt therapy takes that feeling to a whole new level. The effects of breathing in the dry salt aerosol in our salt rooms are far greater than that of breathing in wet air from the ocean. Dry salt is able to move through both the upper and lower respiratory tracts where wet salt can only reach the upper airways. Dry salt is negatively charged, therefore, able to revive cilia and speed up its motion. The cilia line our respiratory tract and are covered by a layer of mucous. When a foreign particle such as dust is inhaled, the job of the cilia is to beat causing the mucous to travel towards your mouth so it can be coughed out. Salt therapy speeds up that process and in some cases where that process is non-existent it works to get it started.
