SALT CAVE & SAUNA
HIMALAYAN SALT CAVE
Take time out of your busy schedule to clear your mind and detox with Himalayan salt. Even if you’re not into meditation, the experience will give you the chance to disconnect and enjoy your own kind of relaxation.
The salt room holds many benefits including its antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties.
As you breathe, your airways absorb minerals such as iron, potassium, and calcium in the salt particles. The salt inside the cave draws out irritants such as toxins and allergens from your respiratory system. As a result, salt cave treatments can help with conditions such as asthma and bronchitis, as well as the common cold.
The salt particles used in 'halotherapy' also have a similar effect on your skin. The salt absorbs impurities and bacteria present on the skin, helping to reduce many skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis. Halotherapy also helps relieve stress, allergies, respiratory infections, hangovers, and high blood pressure.
Salt also produces negative ions. When your body comes into contact with the negatively-charged salt particles in the cave’s atmosphere, it releases more serotonin, one of the ‘feel-good’ chemicals behind feelings of happiness. This chemical reaction can help improve sleep quality and reduce anxiety and stress.
Infrared saunas create unique light waves that cause positive radiation effects on the human body. This has a positive effect on the metabolism and the body’s natural detoxification methods. Benefits of infrared sauna use include:
Toxins in our food, water, air and the amount of stress we experience can all take a toll on our health and well-being. Sweating is one of the primary methods our bodies use to cleanse and eliminate toxins.
Heart / Cardiovascular Health
The increase in circulation helps normalize blood flow and lowers blood pressure and cholesterol. As your body temperature heats up, it increases sweat production to cool itself. Your heart then works harder, pumping blood at a faster rate, boosting circulation.
Skin Health/ Anti Aging
Infrared sauna therapy includes deep detoxification benefits including anti-aging effects and general skin rejuvenation. You will experience significant improvements in skin appearance with regular sauna use, including a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness.
Natural Pain Relief
Infrared sauna use has become one of the most popular alternatives to medicine for chronic pain. Infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles, and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. Doctors recommend infrared sauna therapy to relieve chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, musculoskeletal and joint pain and other chronic pain conditions.
As the body cools itself down, there is a large increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories. Using infrared saunas for weight loss therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout – wherever and whenever you need it!
