The salt cave

Is a room constructed from real salt and depending on the location this salt can be imported from several different sources. The room is designed to be relaxing and atmospheric. During the treatment you lie comfortably in a chair relaxing whilst breathing in this special salty air. In the process tiny salt particles are inhaled into the respiratory system and lungs. Since salt has an anti-bacterial effect the salt particles help dissolve mucous and have a cleansing reaction in the respiratory system. It is effective in the treatment of chronic respiratory conditions, or the after effects of a cold or respiratory infection. Because the body is in a totally relaxed position, the inhalation process is more effective, and it combines improved respiratory function with stress reduction. The treatment then follows with a thermal bath sometimes referred to as the ‘mirror pool’ treatment. As a result this combined treatment has both the benefits from the salt inhalation and the healthy and relaxing effects of bathing in the thermal water.

After this, it then cools to a temperature suitable for bathing, which is usually between 36-39°C. You are encouraged to relax in the thermal bath for 15-20 minutes daily unless otherwise advised by doctor.  Purpose: de-stress, re-energizing and doctor’s prescription not needed
