People report feeling better after a spring thunderstorm, being by waterfalls, forests, mountains. That is because natural environments contain more negative ions. More negative ions will be found in our Salt Cave as well! Once negative ions reach our blood stream they produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, and increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, resulting in higher alertness. So come join us in the Salt Cave for a Halotherapy session in addition to our Events and get some negative ion action for yourself!

I have been asked “what should I wear at the salt cave?’ Anything that is comfortable to you! The Temperature in the cave is in the 70’s. If you tend to get cold, long sleeve would be good. I have blankets for you to snuggle up in. Laying in the zero gravity chair for 45 minutes without moving around, we want to make sure your comfortable! As the micro size particles envelop the room, they fall on your hair, skin, clothing and of course, breathed into all your airway passages, it does not feel overly salty. You will taste a little on your lips, but doesn’t make hair, skin and clothing stiff, like you would want to shower right away!

The Diaphragm is a sheet of muscle separating thoracic and abdominal cavity and shares attachment to the pericardium (heart Sac), the hip flexor and the pelvic floor and is vital to breathing, heart rate, posture and digestion.

January 25th, Philip C. will preform a 10 Crystal Bowl Sound Bath. Singing Bowls have been used for thousands of years for spiritual, meditative and healing purposes. The vibrational sound-waves of the quartz singing bowls attune the body at a cellular level clearing the mind for greater mental performance by effecting brainwaves. This workshop will focus on stimulating the brain with binaural beats( simultaneously sending a marginally different sound frequency to each ear) said to have an effect on the 5 brainwaves: delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma.
