A Healing Salt Cave is a man-made re-creation of the environmental conditions found within a natural underground salt mine. It includes 12 tons of Polish pink salt, and a controlled climate induced through the use of Iodine Water Cascades [maintaining humidity], and a Cold Air Conditioner for temperature stability. This environment creates a micro-climate which induces true Therapeutic Properties; producing ideal atmospheric breathing conditions. Salt caves are a 100% natural and drug-free treatment.

Halotherapy, Speleotherapy, and Relaxation Therapy are the three main components of The Healing Salt Cave. Dimmed lighting, gentle music, and soft-running water cascades allow for clients to engage in deeper relaxation as they receive the treatment of Speleotherapy (exposure to a subterranean atmosphere) and Halotherapy; the inhalation of micron-sized salt particles that break down mucus congestion, and disinfect bacteria.
Through evaporation, the water cascades saturate the Healing Salt Cave with airborne trace elements and minerals, specifically Iodine; as well as negative ions from the Pink Salt. The pharmaceutical grade salt from the Halogenerator is used for inhalation, rehabilitation, prophylactics, and health protection.
Speleotherapy has been successfully used in Europe for over 100 years, and Salt Mines for the past 50 years. The "Wieliczka" Salt Mine in Poland started regular treatment in the salt chambers underground. Thus, the world's first underground health resort of its kind was established in 1964. Poland's Ministry of Health recognized this uniquely created program for pulmonary rehabilitation.
The primary acting factor in Halotherapy is the inhalation of Dry Salt Aerosol. A generator, which by means of mechanical actions, crushes pharmaceutical grade salt into micron-sized particles. This creates a dry salt aerosol between the size of 1 to 10 micrometers (smaller than particles contained in cigarette smoke)
These small particles of salt are negatively ionized and bear a very high kinetic energy. This way, it is guaranteed that it gets into the deepest and smallest parts of the lung. Negative ionization of salt increases the efficiency of healing.
Dry Salt Aerosol cleanses human airways, like a toothbrush cleans teeth. It alleviates bronchial inflammation, removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen) and speeds up mucociliary transport.
A session in the Healing Salt Cave allows the non-invasive and entirely natural supplementation of microelements such as:
