“Salt is born of the purest of parents: the sun and the sea”
– Pythagorus 580 BC-500 BC
What To Expect In A Salt Cave?
As you walk in this sacred place of healing and peace you’ll immediately catch on to the soothing and calming effects of the salt found on the walls, floors, and ceiling! There’s literally salt all over the room, and if that wasn’t enough salt … there’s more! Once you enter the cave you will be asked to remove your shoes. After you are all settled and seated, salt particles are vaporized into the room which allows you to effortlessly inhale the salt. IN my experience, I found it better to lay on my back and close my eyes while the session took place. Also, perfect for deep meditations alone or with family and friends.
Benefits Of Salt Caves
Salt caves, also known Halo Therapy, increases blood flow to your brain, protect you from harmful microorganisms and dust found suspended in the air around you. They also positively regulate your body’s circadian rhythm (the inner cycle that determines when you sleep and wake up), which is similar to what temperature and sunlight do. Not only that, but they also increase the levels of antioxidant superoxide dismutase circulating within your body. All of these work to improve your overall health and promote a longer lifespan.
My Experience With The Salt Cave
Just from breathing in the cave I as if I was in a different world! Everything slowed down. My heart rate and my brain waves were going into a much more relaxed and meditative space. All I needed to do was set an intention and whatever clarity I needed was mine!
What To Wear In a Salt Cave
For health and safety reasons, socks are required in all Caves. You have the freedom to wear whatever you would like inside the Cave, but they recommend dressing comfortably. The only requirement is that you must remove your shoes! The temperature in a salt cave is usually about 68 to 70 degrees this is to maintain a good environment for the salt. So, if you tend to get cold easily (like myself) I suggest you consider dressing a bit warmer for extra coziness and comfort if The Cave you go to doesn’t provide blankets. And if you’re looking for an ‘Instagrammable’ Place to add to your stories and highlights, The Salt Cave is definitely the place for a cool picture moment, to share with friends and family.
