The Sweet (and Therapeutic) Truth About Salt Caves
THE IDEA OF SITTING IN a salt cave to reap health benefits may sound primitive, but it’s becoming an increasingly popular activity in spa-like settings around the U.S. Designed to simulate the environment of Himalayan salt caves, these cozy grottos feature literally tons of crystal salt rock, a dim glow provided by rock lamps, reclining chairs and soothing instrumental background music. Meanwhile, during a session, a machine outside the room (called a halogenerator) grinds dry salt and pumps micro particles of it into the air, which is kept at low humidity and approximately 70 degrees. The setting is a bit like a meditation or yoga class – without any mantras or downward-facing dog poses. You simply sit quietly and breathe the refined air, as you relax and clear your mind.
Salt….. beautiful blessings of Salt. I want to share some insights into the healing properties of salt as we are invited to become ever more self- empowered to restore ourselves to our own wholeness. It is one spending property that Mother Gaia has gifted us for millenniums that it is time for us to reconnect with in deeper ways. It is time for us to return to remedies that Gaia has cited us and allow mother nature to be our support.
