Salt Caves / Halotherapy
Beginnings and Benefits of Halotherapy
Salt Caves are growing in popularity! They were first invented by doctors to treat a variety of medical problems, though today salt caves have turned into a fun and relaxing leisure activity.
It’s always been a known fact that mine workers breath in harmful particles which significantly effects their health. However, Dr. Felks Boczkowski realized that the salt miners were the exception to this rule. The salt miners were healthier than most people in general! Dr. Boczkowski researched, consulted then concluded it must be the salt! In 1839 he opened the first Salt Cave Medical Facility in the Wieliczka Salt Mine in Poland.
Today, Salt Cave Therapy also known as Halotharapy is an alternative/complimentary treatment that can cure or help a wide range of ailments. People who suffer from any respiratory or allergy issue seem to benefit the most, however our guests also find relief from stress, depression, sleeplessness, acne, aged skin, and report an overall stronger immune system. Everyone tells us this is the ultimate meditation spot!
