Monthly Membership - Himalayan Salt Cave
Dry salt therapy originates from speleotherapy (cave therapy) and the Wieliczka salt cave in Poland, where workers exhibited fewer respiratory illnesses. There are thousands of salt rooms in Europe and beyond.
- Mucolytic effects: loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport
- Removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen)
- Reduces IgE level (immune system oversensitivity)
The salt cave at Holistic Therapies has Himalayan salt boulders on the walls and Himalayan salt gravel on the ground. There is a halo generator which emits 100% pharamaceutical grade micro particles of salt into the room. Participants will sit or lay on an anti-gravity chair and inhale the dry, salt-enriched air deep down into the lungs. This is where the healing benefits do their greatest healing. The salt widens the airways and loosens the mucus, which begins to clear quickly, and inflammation is reduced, which makes more room in the airways for you to breathe. Symptoms subside, sometimes for up to 12 months. The non-inhaled particles landing on the skin help to balance pH and induce the reparative and regenerative processes in the skin, increasing rigidity and stimulating cell growth and microcirculation. The whole process allows for a relaxed state of mental and physical well-being.
A session at the Himalayan Salt Cave will last 45 minutes. Every session starts on the hour. Comfortable clothing is recommended for the salt cave. You may change into clothing that exposes areas of skin you would like the salt to reach (shorts, sleeveless shirts, skirts, etc).
Since dry salt therapy is 100% natural and drug free, there are no negative side effects. After sessions, you may experience a slight cough, minor tightness in the chest or runny nose, but this is simply the salt doing its work to remove mucus and toxins from the lungs and airways.
- Depending on age and stage of your condition, 20-30 sessions are recommended for long term results.
- The sessions should be frequent; about two or three a week is suggested.
- For irreversible conditions, two to three-month follow-up sessions are recommended to maintain the clear lungs.
Experts note that the concentration of particles in halotherapy is about 10 to 15 times the concentration found by the sea. A 45-minute session is equal to three days by the sea. “Kinetically activated dry salt particles are like an army of janitors helping to detox the respiratory system,” explains Ulle Pukk, founder of Salt Chamber Inc. In some facilities, a halogenator processes salt into microparticles dispersed in controled amounts.

The salt is able to generate negative ions which help to cleanse the body of the positive ions produced by electronic devices used everyday. These include cell phones, tablets, etc. By neutralizing the atmosphere in this way, it stabilizes mood and decreases stress.
Dry Salt therapy is a completely drug-free treatment for children and adults. Children as young as 3 months have benefitted greatly and respond quickly and effectively to Halotherapy. Children are more prone to respiratory problems because they pick up more viruses and their lungs are not fully developed until about the age of 9. In addition, the environment is filled with pollutants which children have a harder time keeping at bay.
Pregnant women have experienced relief for their congestion and chronic respiratory problems. In addition, the ionized salt particles help boost their immune system.
A salt cave session is a must for the seniors community. In addition to the benefits already listed in this section, the seniors are able to maintain a healthy weight through the reduction of excess fluid in the body. It is a great environment for group events and special pricing is available. Contact us for pricing.
Dry Salt Therapy should be used as a complementary treatment. A salt cave can reduce dependence on certain medications and episodes of breathing difficulty are not as frequent or severe. However, you should always follow your doctor's advice and your prescribed medication regimen.
This purchase is for a monthly membership of 1 45 minute session per day in the Himalayan Salt Cave.
