Saltitude Himalayan Salt Cave: Boost the Immune System with Halotherapy and Meditation
Halotherapy (salt therapy) began when Dr. Karl Hermann Spannage saw improvements in the health of his patients after hiding in salt mines to escape heavy bombing during World War II. Now, halotherapy and its benefits can be found all over the world as well as locally in Rhode Island at Saltitude Himalayan Salt Cave, in Lincoln.
Salt is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, helps loosen mucus, relieves respiratory conditions and helps boost the immune system. Using a halo-generator, pharmaceutical-grade salt is dispersed into the air and controlled by sensors, allowing for perfect conditions and effortless absorption. This drug-free, natural remedy can help countless ailments such as allergies, asthma, sinusitis, weakened immune systems, snoring, acne, psoriasis, eczema, COPD, cystic fibrosis and inflammation. As the stress relieving Himalayan salt naturally cleanses and detoxifies the body, it aids in water regulation, balances alkaline and acidity, aids in normalizing blood pressure and may help to reduce cravings.
While halotherapy supports good health, it should be avoided during the acute phase of any illness, if an oxygen tank is used to aid breathing or if an individual is contagious. A personal physician or health care provider should be consulted with any questions about one’s health.
In addition to dry salt therapy at Saltitude, a short, custom-guided meditation and music plays overhead to completely relax guests during the session. Meditation can increase mental clarity, bring about self-awareness and a new perspective, help to manage stress and pain, increase patience and reduce negative thoughts.
Modeled after the European caves that have been in existence for hundreds of years, Saltitude Himalayan Salt Cave features dimly lit Himalayan salt lining the walls and floor and a starry ceiling, adding ambiance to an already relaxing experience. A 45-minute Salt Cave session is $35. Saltitude also offers a unique holistic and mindful gift shop, reiki, card readings, private sound therapy and many other services, classes and events.
