Salt Cave

Starved Rock Country's Very Own Himalayan SALT CAVE!  

Remove yourself from environmental pollution, technology, and the constant commotion of everyday life. Walk through our Tree door into a Himalayan salt-filled oasis. Relax in the centuries-old European tradition of dry salt therapy. Absorb the healing benefits of the 84 minerals contained in over 6 tons of pink Himalayan salt on the floor and walls of our salt cave, which help purify and balance your body, and may boost the immune system and reduce chronic fatigue and stress.  Breathe in the cleansing and anti-inflammatory effects of pure, dry therapeutic-grade salt produced from our salt generator. Halotherapy, or dry salt therapy, is a natural way to cleanse and detoxify your skin and lungs. It works well as a complimentary treatment with traditional medicine or as an alternative treatment under the guidance of your physician. Always consult with your physician(s) before discontinuing any medications or prescribed treatments. We are not medical doctors; we are simply making it possible for you to experience another option that has proven to help people in Europe for many years

Our state of the art Salt Cave features a Halomed halo (salt) generator which infuses microfine particles of pharmaceutical grade salt into the air, replicating the hygienic and restorative properties of natural cave atmospheres.  The salt is breathed deep into the lung cavities to absorb pollen and allergens, and enhances the respiratory system's natural cleansing process. It breaks down mucus in the nasal passages and airways and decreases bacteria and inflammation.  Our facility is controlled with sensors to maintain a uniform aerosol concentration, a negative pressure environment, constant temperature, and low humidity. 

The salt cave is a very healing space, where we cultivate peace and quiet within the room and within ourselves. Cellphones and gaming devices are not allowed, and lockers are provided for personal use. Always drink plenty of water before and after a session.
Please arrive 15 minutes before your session. Appointments strongly recommended! All sessions begin promptly on the hour and last 45 minutes. Our cave seats up to 8 people in zero-gravity chairs, or 12 if 4 lie on the floor. Bring your friends for a group gathering or Bridal Event!
