History of Halotherapy
Although new to the United States, Salt Therapy has been around since the 1800s in Europe.
In 1843 doctor Felix Boczkowski formulated that the presence of the air in the salt mines in Wieliczka in Poland saturated with dry salt particles caused healing effects on people with pulmonary and respiratory problems.
Today the Wieliczka Salt Mine is operating as the largest Underground Rehabilitation and Treatment Center. They are the world leader in providing innovative rehabilitation and treatment of respiratory diseases by combining both the natural microclimate of the underground salt excavations and the best practices of contemporary medicine.
Doctors and scientists came up with a solution. That’s where Halotherapy comes in.
Halotherapy comes from the Greek, Halo, for salt. It is a modern holistic method that mimics the natural microclimate of the salt mines. You can get the benefits of three hours in a salt mine in only 45 minutes in a specially designed halochamber, or salt room. Our halogenerator, designed by Dr. Alina Chervinskaya the leading expert in Halotherapy, is used to crush pharmaceutical grade salt into micronized particles that are dispersed through the air in the salt room.
Clinical studies have shown that when people inhale this type of salt air, it can help to stimulate the natural ability of their respiratory system to reduce inflammation, fight infection, clear blockages and reduce discomfort.
Today, halotherapy rooms have been certified as medical devices in Russia, and the Israeli Ministry of Health has similarly recognized halotherapy as a medical treatment for pediatric asthma. That said salt therapy has become very popular and effective treatment for children with asthma, as it is non-invasive and 100% natural.

(New England Journal of Medicine)
We have tiled the walls of our cave with this special salt, and have also added two halogenerators which heats, crushes, and disperses micro-particles of the salt into the caves. The concentrations of salt particles can be adjusted for varying respiratory issues. Medical research shows that in order for halo therapy to effectively treat respiratory and skin ailments it is necessary to have a concentration of 3 to 4 milligrams of salt per cubic meter of airspace. Bacteria or viruses cannot live in this high concentration of pure Himalayan salt and therefore cannot be spread through the air to other guests in the cave.
Note: If you have any questions or concerns regarding your medical conditions and halo-therapy, we recommend that you consult with your physician before booking an appointment in the Salt Cave.
Salt Therapy is Proven to Better Your Health
Main Salt Cave is a quiet-meditative chamber (Adults only please) with soft music playing and dim lights for ultimate relaxation. As soon as you enter Royal Salt Cave you are immediately surrounded by tons of Himalayan salt rocks. This amazingly beautiful and glowing space has been designed for you to feel an immediate sense of relief both on an emotional and a physical level. Our relaxing zero gravity lounge chairs along with the soothing background music bring serenity and peace into your heart in just minutes.
The beautiful Salt stones and bricks decorating the walls are made of pure Himalayan Pink Salt. It’s a hand-mind salt that derived from 250 million years old ancient sea salt deposits. That salt has been exposed to enormous pressure for millions of years, causing the formation of that unique crystal salt. Typically, Himalayan Salt contains more than 80 minerals and elements, uncontaminated with any toxins or pollutants. The pink color is due to its high content of iron oxide.
You do not need to suffer one more day from allergies, sneezing or coughing. Some relief often occurs with one treatment, and asthma and allergy symptoms typically improve dramatically after a few sessions. The micro climate acts as an anti-inflammatory and decreases the swelling from the inside out. The therapy may be likened to soaking a sprained ankle in Epsom salts, except by breathing in our micro climate, the body naturally decreases internal inflammation to allow expedited healing to occur and symptoms to minimize.

Halotherapy (treatment in a simulated salt environment), is widely acclaimed and has been used since the 19th century in Europe.

The Salt Room Experience
— What to expect and how it works
Dress comfortably for your appointment, but really whatever you have on for the day will be just fine. Once inside the Salt Room you will find yourself surrounded by thousands of pounds of beautiful pink Himalayan salt that cover the walls and floor. As we dim the lights, you can lounge back in one of our zero gravity chairs and listen to the sweet sounds of serene background music to help you relax. When you are comfortable a salt grinder, which breaks the salt grains into micronized particles begins to run. Throughout the 45 minute therapy a dry, fine salt aerosol is delivered into the salt room by a fan. Inside the salt room a monitoring salt sensor is housed and is responsible for measuring the salt aerosol concentrations levels. It receives the information then transmits the data to a controller, which compares and adjusts the salt aerosol concentration based on the specific needs for the people in the room. With a consistently sustained concentration of the dry salt aerosol, the salt room’s environment provides the benefits of natural microclimates.
Color, Music and Light Therapy in Salt Caves and Graduation Tower Room
Use Of Color and Light Therapy at Salt Cave and Graduation Tower Room is achieved through the use of photo-diodes scattered in the ceiling together with crystal salt lamps in the walls which diffuse light through the salt creating a light therapy system which has a positive affect on stress, fatigue and depression. The body absorbs energy. When light enters through the eyes or the skin it travels neurological pathways to the pineal glands. Different colors give off different wavelengths of energy and have different effects on physical and psychological functions. It is believed that exposing the body to colored light can aid in healing.
