Crystal Cave

250 Million Years In The Making

Our two Himalayan Salt Caves create a surreal environment to relax, recharge, and rejuvenate both body and mind. The cave walls and ceilings are made of 45 tons of backlit Jurassic-Age salt blocks and crystals, while the floor is covered with crushed salt. This ancient sea salt is laden with minerals, including magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium, all of which play a key role in our body’s health, function, and cellular communication. Visitors to our beautiful salt caves can relax in comfortable zero-gravity lounge chairs, or lie directly in the salt. 

Salt Caves & Your Health

The air in the caves is infused with micro-salt particles that impart a therapeutic benefit when inhaled. Halotherapy, simply breathing in air saturated with salt particles, is known to be a natural and effective way to improve respiratory health. The healing atmosphere accompanied by soothing music is a natural way to enhance overall physical and mental health.

Traditional Therapeutic Salt Use

Historic records indicate that humans have long been using natural salt caves and mineral baths as places of healing and rejuvenation. In modern times, science has shown the health benefits of feeding your body pure and natural ingredients. Salt is known to have a vital biochemical role in our bodies for energy and cellular health.

Activities In Our Himalayan Salt Caves:

Walk In Sessions


Our Himalayan Salt Caves are available on the hour, every hour, during regular business hours for 45-minutes of rejuvenation and relaxation.

Walk-ins...

are welcome, but are not guaranteed a spot.  You can reserve your spot online by clicking HERE.

When your session begins, the lights are dimmed, and soothing music is played. Relax on mats or recline in, zero-gravity chairs. The atmosphere is infused with micro-particles of salt that can be easily absorbed through the skin and deep into the lungs, and is said to assist breathing. Our caves are the perfect place to escape, heal your body and refresh your mind.

Dress Comfortably...

and plan to remove your socks and shoes (though if you prefer to wear booties over your shoes, we will provide them for you). The dry micro-climate in the caves is kept at a temperature of 72 degrees Fahrenheit and 40% humidity. Blankets are available.

Arrive Fifteen Minutes Before...

your Cave Session is to begin.  Sessions start on the hour every hour and we DO NOT admit latecomers to a cave session already in progress.  Please be early :)

There are a limited number of seats...

per cave session, and if you do not have a confirmed reservation there may not be room for you.  Please remember to sign up each member of your party to reserve their spots!  If you have a coupon code, use your coupon code on our online signup for each member of your party.
