Benefits and Videos

Salt caves have existed for decades in Europe. A Polish doctor first noted that the workers in a salt mine did not have respiratory or lung problems due to the stable air temperature, low humidity, and because the mines lacked airborne pollutants. A spa was opened based on these findings to help people with respiratory ailments and skin conditions. The largest and oldest salt works in Europe, known as Wieliczka, Poland, outside of Krakow, also carved a hospital out of the immense salt mountain, seven hundred and forty feet below the surface, specifically for asthmatics and patients with lung disease and allergies. Entry into the clinic is by doctor referral only and it is recognized as an alternative medicine that is helping people. People have traveled from all over the world to experience the healing powers of natural crystal salt.

                The beautiful color of the Himalayan salt is soothing and relaxing ambiance through color therapy - also known as chromotherapy. Chromotherapy has much scientific evidence showing its benefit with relaxation, stress, sleep and more. The pharmaceutical grade salt that is emitted into the air contains 84 mineral and nutrient properties, it has great proponents like being anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. This salt is exceptional at drawing out metabolic toxins from within our cells and to purge out toxic metals and impurities. Mucus is loosened up and thickness decreased that exists in the respiratory system which are then expelled naturally. This is how it boosts immunity. Besides enjoying an overall sense of well being and rejuvenation, some people with respiratory conditions and skin ailments can find relief over time.

                Now people in the United States can benefit with the invention of the halo generator which models the healing effects of the salt caves by using pharmaceutical salt. The halo generator emits the medical grade salt into the cave for inhalation. The popularity of salt caves has grown stronger in the United States in the past five years and its positive benefits have been highlighted in the press.

A lovely poem by ChatGPT - 
even AI knows how great it is!

The air is pure and still,
Crystalline walls glow in soft light,

The salty mist works its magic chill,
as worries fade and tensions take flight.

Lie back and close your eyes,
let the salt-infused air embrace,
Breathe deep and let out sighs,
as stress and anxiety leave no trace.

The soothing sound of silence,
echoes in the tranquil cave,

A perfect place for stillness,
and for the soul to be brave.

Let the salt cave work its wonders,
as it heals the body and mind,
A place of rest and surrender,
leave your troubles behind.

So come, seeker of relaxation,
enter the salt cave and let go,
Find inner peace and inspiration,
in this haven of serenity and flow..
