Darien's First & Only Luxurious Salt Cave
Entering into the cave is a beautiful and calming sight. The inside of the cave is covered with tons of Himalayan salt on the walls and underfoot. A large and beautiful salt brine cascade adds to the beauty and health benefits.
The authentic Himalayan pink salt is not just beautiful to see but it has anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. The pharmaceutical dry salt, containing 84 minerals and nutrients, and also known for being anti-inflamatory, is the purest natural salt for inhalation.
The Healing Benefits of Halotherapy
Halotherapy uses pure dry salt vapor to treat respiratory ailments, skin irritations and to stimulate rejuvenation and relaxation. It binds mucus in the body for you to then expel which could leave you breathing better. The beautiful pinks, orange and reds adds chromotherapy to the benefits. These colors create a soothing ambiance for emotional and mental health benefits which could affect the level of the mood chemical serotonin.
The Salt Cave of Darien's salt cave is a surreal environment to relax, recharge, and rejuvenate both body and mind.

Here are answers to the frequently asked questions and call us if you have any further questions - we love to talk about salt!
FOR COVID-19 REOPENING PROTOCOLS
As everyone's safety is the most important thing to us, we are following all health department guidelines. We will continue our high cleaning and disinfecting protocols. We will be wearing gloves and masks as well as taking our daily temperature.
We ask you that please:
* Make an appointment online and answer all questions. We will be slowly reopening so there will be limited availability and seats for the first couple of weeks. We will have our two rooms open for therapy - the salt cave which seats up to 4 people (known or individuals and seats are 6 feet apart) and the salt room which seats up to 1-2 known people (distance is not 6 feet apart in this room).
*Arrive early and text/call us at 203-658-7667 to let us know. The door will be locked. We ask that you wait in your car as we will have you enter in shifts.
*Bring your own blanket, wear white socks and come with a mask until you are in your seat in your session. You would not wear it for the salt session as it impedes taking in the antibacterial salt. The salt is meant to break down germs so it is like a cleaner for the inside of your body. Once your session is over, you would put your mask back on before getting up.
* We will do an infared touchless thermometer for temperature readings per the Darien Health Department guidelines. Any person with a temperature over 99 degrees will need to reschedule their session to another time when the temperature is under 99 degrees. Payments will be a credit and applied to the new session.
1. How does it work? What do I do? What happens in the Salt Cave during a regular session?
You quietly and silently relax in an anti-gravity lounge chair in a room surrounded with Himalayan salts on the floor, walls and ceiling. A water cascade on the wall disperses particles of salt into the air, the generator micro-particles of salt which is fine. Calming music plays while you breathe normally in the healthy salt air which has 84 essential minerals and negative ions. You also get chromotherapy from the beautiful pink, orange and reds in there which has a calming effect. Regular sessions are 45 minutes.
2. Is this a shared space?
Yes, other people can book a seat for a session so you could share the room with other people. However, we hear most people find it an internal experience and they seem to not notice anyone else. For the comfort of others, it is a quiet environment so we ask for no talking.
3. What is the room temperature inside the Salt Cave?
The temperature inside the cave is a comfortable 68 degrees. A throw-blanket is available on each lounging chair. You may want to bring a sweater just in case.
4. What should I wear?
We ask that you wear white socks. We suggest wearing a long sleeve shirt and comfortable pants. You do not walk away covered in salt so you can wear clothes you plan to continue wearing. Just like when you are sleeping, your body temperature may drop while you are resting and relaxing so we suggest bringing a sweater or sweatshirt. A throw-blanket is available for use during the session.
5. What are the health benefits?
The more colorful the salt, the more proponents are in it. Himalayan salt is a beautiful pink salmon color to benefit with chromotherapy. The medical grade salt contains 84 essential minerals and nutrients, such as magnesium and calcium, are required by our bodies at all times in order to work effectively.
6. How do I get the most out of my visit?
Be sure to show up at least ten minutes before your scheduled session. Leave your books, cellphones and personal belongings in the secure lockers provided for your use outside the cave. Allow yourself to relax into the experience; you may want to meditate, focus on your breathing, etc. Many people relax into sleep.
7. Why do I have to bring and wear white socks?
White socks are required for walking on the salts in the cave. Colored socks have chemicals in the dyes and would contaminate the salts. As we want to maintain purity of the salts, we require and appreciate that you wear pure white socks in the cave.
8. What is the cancellation policy?
We have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Otherwise, there is a $25.00 charge.
