Comfortable relaxation in the Salt Cave

Comfortable relaxation in the Salt Cave

We are increasingly exposed to pollutants in the air we breathe and the water that we bathe in. Therefore it is not surprising that there are visible increases in respiratory and skin problems. These health issues take the form of asthma, seasonal allergies, breathing difficulties, heart and metabolic disturbances, skin rashes, depression and countless other modern diseases.

Every breath of salty air we take in is an irreplaceable, natural benefit for many of our ailments. On the basis of medical knowledge and experience, we have recreated the same natural salt enriched micro climate found in underground salt mines. Our unique therapeutic salt cave contains Polish salt rock crystals weighing between 6 ounces and 300 pounds each. The components of the salt varies depending on its origin. The salt in our cave comes from three mines in Poland, is over 250 million years old and  comes from over 500 meters below the earths surface. It is anti-bacterial, uncontaminated by dirt, and is free of toxins and pollutants.

The secret of salt therapy is simple. By naturally recreating the micro climate of a salt mine, the air in our therapeutic salt cave is intensely saturated with negative ions and when heated to 64 degrees the salt rock crystals in the cave release 84 trace elements and minerals which are essential to our bodies. By breathing in these elements, the body gets in balance and begins to heal itself. Our salt cave will leave you with a newly discovered energy accomplished without medications, through the natural healing process of salt therapy. Our goal is to afford people of all ages, the opportunity to experience a quality holistic health benefit which is completely natural, non-invasive and drug free.

The Asheville Salt Cave has taken an ancient healing treatment and combined it with 21st century technology to bring Asheville a unique healing environment. The healing effects of salt caves are not just caused by the purity of the air, but primarily by its resonant vibrational pattern, thereby replenishing the body and balancing its energy deficit. These resonant vibrations activate our self-healing and self-regulating powers. A 45 minute session in our cave also provides the ultimate relaxation experience combining salt, music and color (light) therapy. One 45 minutes session in our cave is equivalent to spending four days at the beach! No other salt room or salt cave in the United States can make this claim



salt-cave-ashevilleWhat Can Salt Therapy do for you?

During a 45-minute  salt therapy session, you relax in zero-gravity lounge chairs while being immersed in calming sounds in our unique microclimate. Shoes must be removed. We will provide booties or you may bring clean white socks to wear in the cave. Breathing in the salt air is said to foster good sleep, alleviate symptoms of allergies and asthma, relieve hypertension and stress and even cure hangovers. However we make no medical claims.

The salt cave is something like an oasis of fresh air in the heavily polluted environment in which we live.

As an alternative treatment, salt therapy in our therapeutic cave helps patients who suffer from acne, arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, congestion, chronic and acute otitis, cystic fibrosis, hay fever, skin conditions of all types, ear infections, migraines, snoring, poor concentration, allergies, eczema, ear nose and throat conditions, psoriasis, relapsing pneumonia, frequent viral infection, weakened immune systems, and countering the effect of smoking and pollution.

Salt Therapy is a clinically proven natural, safe and beneficial method of treatment for every age group. It is clinically proven:

  • To clear mucus from the airways thus removing airflow obstruction
  • To enhance mucus clearance
  • To balance airway-surface liquid
  • To provide anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effects
  • To reduce bronchial hyper responsiveness
  • To improve lung function
  • To help clear unwanted inhaled particles from lungs


In most patients, after a course of Salt Therapy, airways become normal and symptoms disappear.
