Our serene and beautiful salt caves are crafted from 45 tons of 250 million year old Himalayan crystal salt, the most pristine and unpolluted salt on earth, with an identical mineral content to that of the ancient primal ocean (the source of all life). Unlike regular salt, which has been processed and chemically refined, our Himalayan salt is a natural element, essential to cellular health containing 84 natural and trace elements that our body absolutely needs. Salt Cave Therapy, also known as Halotherapy (halo means salt in Greek) and Speleotherapy (speleos means cave in Greek) is profoundly relaxing and can even boost your mood!
Pass Me the Salt Please
For centuries, Eastern Europeans have traveled to curative underground salt mines, like Berchtesgaden in Germany and Wieliczka in Poland, to relieve a variety of respiratory conditions including allergies and asthma, and to sooth skin ailments such as eczema and psoriasis. Today, Salt offers you this extraordinary experience right here in downtown Santa Barbara. Simply sit back and breathe while the micro particles of salt in the air help to decongest the lungs, reduce inflammation in your airways and relax the body and mind. It’s Revolutionary.
Inhalation of dry salt clears a lot more than your sinuses it also clears your mind. Drop into salt when you need a peaceful time-out. Find a deeper sense of quiet and emerge feeling refreshed and ready for action.
