July’s a good month to let your mind wander.

Laura Chaiken | 2018-06-30

After a stressful and busy first half of the year, relaxing during the summer is essential to revive yourself and feel good.  Visiting the Bloomington Salt Cave can help!  One 45 minute Halotherapy session provides the healthful benefits of 4 days by the seaside and then some.   The way being by the seaside and being in the Salt Cave is similar is  the Negative Ions  and the SALT you breathe in.  The difference is that the salt by the ocean is already saturated with water, therefore, not as effective at drawing out toxins and allergens, or reducing inflammation.  Super dry Salt Air is Hygroscopic,  absorbing  toxins and inflammation,  therefore opening up airway passages so you can get a good Clean Breath.  It is naturally anti-bacterial, antimicrobial. Negative Ions increase our serotonin levels, giving a overall sense of well being.   Safe and effective for people of all ages!

Spring thunderstorms, Negative ions and April Events in Salt Cave

Laura Chaiken | 2018-04-02

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!

Each event is unique, creative and full of health and well being, designed and crafted  by certified practitioners.

March Happenings!

  SALT CAVE CELEBRATION!!!!!  We are enjoying all the people who have come to have a “Salt Cave Celebration” with us.  Whether its a Birthday, Anniversary, Bridal Shower, Multi-generational get together, Retirement party, let us help make it special.  You can choose your own music, hang a banner, just ask!  (Thanks to the Women who let me post their picture)

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!

We had a wonderful February, and would like to thank our gifted Practitioners and all of you for experiencing Halotherapy and our Special Events.
