What is Salt Therapy?

Himalayan Salt Rocks placed inside our Graduation Tower (water fall) are broken down into micro-particles that fill the air. As you breathe and absorb these particles through your skin, you will experience all the incredible health benefits of the Salt Cave.

Stress & Anxiety Relief

All electronic devices emit a radiation called positive ions. The Himalayan salt particles are negative ions, which help draw out the positive and balance us. The relaxing and calming environment of the Salt Cave, combined with the detoxing salt, will help lift your energy and mood from the moment you walk through the door.

Altitude Adjustment

Adjusting to altitude can be a challenge. Telluride's elevation of 8,750 feet affects many visitors, leaving them struggling with nausea, headaches, trouble sleeping, and loss of appetite. Breathing in the salt cave air allows the tiny salt particles to enter the respiratory channels. This can help reduce inflammation, increase lung capacity, and improve blood flow so oxygen can travel more freely around the body and help reduce your symptoms.

Respiratory Health

Inhaling small salt particles that 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 anti-inflammatory effects that help a myriad of underlying health complications and concerns.

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. The Salt is so absorbent, the small particles can sink into your skin’s epidermis and absorb 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 are also 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. ​​​​​​​​​
