In the 1840’s, a Polish physician documented that workers in salt mines had much lower rates of lung disease and attributed the cause of their good health to the salt cave air that was saturated with salt particles. Soon thereafter speleotherapy, the therapeutic use of salt caves, became a common drug-free treatment for many chronic lung and skin conditions. The Salt Room®, simulating the effects of salt mines, brings a once inaccessible, natural, healing element from the earth to the doorsteps of our urban community.
Salt therapy is the therapeutic use of natural salt in a simulated microclimate, like a salt room, where pulverized salt is blown into the room for occupants to passively breathe in.
During the 45-minute session, you can relax, enjoy music or read in our cozy, spa-like salt covered rooms while breathing in microscopic salt particles. Salt acts like an expectorant, accelerating mucus clearance and improving lung function while killing harmful bacteria and soothing the respiratory system.
