Chambers’ Wellness Center is excited to announce the completion and opening of our Himalayan Salt Cave! We’ve already had our first guests try it out this afternoon, and we look forward to introducing more people to halotherapy every day.
For the month of September 2017, your first session with us is free! Keep reading to learn more about the features and benefits of our Himalayan Salt Cave and how you can make an appointment.
The cave is one part of our larger upstairs renovation project that will increase our overall wellness offerings. The installation of the cave took two weeks, and it boasts more than 17,000 pounds of salt that was imported from the Himalayan Mountains.
Here is a quick guide to our Himalayan Salt Cave and what you can expect when you make an appointment with us.
What are some of the benefits of our Himalayan Salt Cave?
Salt caves promote energy and vitality while relaxing and calming the nervous and lymphatic systems. They are a great way to boost your positive moods. They are antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory.
It’s equivalent to spending a day at the ocean breathing in the ocean air – without the exposure to dangerous UV rays. Salt is a powerful therapeutic healing health remedy for guests of all ages. Plus, you no longer have to go down into an actual cave or travel all the way to the beach to receive the benefits. You can come up to our second-floor wellness center and spend an afternoon relaxing and investing in your health.
Besides salt, what are some of the cave’s other features?
In addition to the (literal) tons of Himalayan salt, relaxing music plays from speakers that are discretely built into the cave’s ceiling. As far as outside noise is concerned, the room is heavily padded, and we strive to keep the upstairs wellness area as Zen-like as possible.
Additionally, the ceiling is dotted with thousands of small lights that resemble twinkling stars. There are also lights in the walls that add a warm ambience throughout the cave, and a string of lights along the floor near the entrance of the cave indicating where there is a small step.
Our cave is also equipped with a radiant heat floor for when you bury your toes into the salt.
Most importantly, though, air is blown into the room through a series of vents so the salt is experienced at a higher concentration to maximize the benefits.
How does the process work?
We ask that guests arrive approximately 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment, and we will greet them and get them signed in. We provide secure lockers for guests to place any personal items – phones and other devices are not permitted inside the cave.
Shoes are also not permitted inside the cave, but guests are encouraged to wear socks or socks can be provided.
Sessions are 45 minutes long, and clients can spend that time however they wish, whether it is relaxing, meditating or sleeping. Blankets are also provided to make the experience as cozy as possible.
When the session is complete, guests can exit the cave and go about their day feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed.
Who should consider salt therapy?
Salt therapy is a natural, safe and beneficial experience for people of all ages. Accordingly, we offer a variety of Himalayan Salt Cave experiences including Yoga, Mommy & Me, Children’s Sessions, Massage Therapy and Guided Meditation sessions.
It is also an opportunity to host a truly unique private party, meeting or bridal party.
