Salt Cave Treatments

What is Salt Therapy?

Himalayan Salt Rocks are placed inside the Graduation Tower (water fall), the water breaks down the salt turning it into micro-particles that fill the air, as you breathe and absorb through your skin you experience all the incredible health benefits.

Stress & Anxiety Relief

All electronic devices emit a radiation we call positive ions. The Himalayan salt is negative ions, drawing out the positive and balancing us. The effect is an instant sense of soothing calm as you enter the cave, helping lift your energy and mood as you reach a deep meditative state for rejuvenation of the body and mind, ultimately supporting the lymphatic, immune, and nervous systems.

Altitude Adjustment

Adjusting to altitude can be a challenge. Telluride's elevation of 8750 feet above sea level affects many visitors, leaving them struggling with nausea, headaches, trouble sleeping, and loss of appetite. Inhaling and breathing in the salt cave air allows the tiny salt particles to enter the respiratory channels, which can reduce inflammation, improve circulation, increase lung capacity, and improve blood flow so oxygen can travel more freely around the body, ultimately relieving your symptoms.

Respiratory Health

Inhaling small salt particles that can penetrate deep within the wall of the lungs can reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, improving conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Anti-Inflammatory

Himalayan salt ions possess strong anti-inflammatory properties. Relaxing in the salt cave can have long-lasting healing anti-inflammatory effects, which can relieve inflammation that is often painful and distributive to the body as it is a symptom of most diseases.

Skin Purification

Pure mineral salts have natural moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties which support the skin’s water balance and barrier function by attracting moisture to the skin. Mineral salts have strong rejuvenating properties for anti-aging. Salt is also very absorbent, so the small particles can sink into your skin’s epidermis and absorb the oils that cause acne, as well as reduce the frequency of psoriasis and eczema outbreaks that are often caused by inflammation.

Detoxification

Salt is a natural antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antihistamine. It also anti-fungal and anti-microbial, as well as being a disinfectant and antiseptic - nothing bad can live in the salt. Sitting in the cave draws out impurities from the body, allowing for a highly effective detox. 

Mineral Replenishment

Minerals are necessary for cell function and detoxification, and have strong rejuvenating properties. Salt levels affect our cell activity, energy and blood sugar levels. Himalayan salt has 84 minerals and elements that can also be found in the human body. Sitting in the salt cave can help you absorb and replenish these minerals. 

Immune Support

​Salt ions purify the air. The detoxifying effects can support and strengthen the immune, lymph and nervous systems, keeping the body healthy during cold, flu and allergy seasons. ​​​​​​​​​

Your Body in the salt cave

Explore the plethora of benefits that Salt Cave Therapy has to offer on a molecular, physical and mental level, below:

Breathing in the himalayan salt immediately sparks an anti inflammatory response and starts to break up the built up mucosal lining, increasing lung capacity, allowing your respiratory system to heal. Whether it is the high altitude, asthma, COPD, allergies, bronchitis or other respiratory infections or issues, the inhalation of high quality himalayan salt will improve your respiratory health.

Absorbing the salt particles through your skin has the same anti inflammatory response as well as anti bacterial properties, rapidly healing issues such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne and overall rashes. The salt also allows your skin to hydrate better helping achieve anti aging benefits.

As the salt makes its way deep to the cellular level you start to achieve the detoxification benefits. Himalayan salt is not only anti inflammatory but also a natural disinfectant, it is anti fungal, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral and more, this means once the salt gets into your cells, the cell will naturally flush these foreign unwanted particles, allowing a deep detox that is also beneficial for your immune, nervous, and lymphatic systems. Treatments are especially recommended to help keep the body healthy during flu and allergy seasons.

Once the salt penetrates your cells it nourishes you with the same 84 trace minerals that we hold in the human body. Increasing mineral levels improves hydration, which is extremely beneficial for aching joints and muscles, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and all autoimmune conditions. Salt also boasts negative ions.

We are constantly surrounded by positive ions that can cause stress, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, depression. Sitting in the cave, surrounded by such a large quantity of negative ions, draws out these positive ions, allowing deep relaxation and a sense of calm.
