The Montauk Salt Cave in the East Village is therapeutic in nature, offering a range of medicinal benefits.
When you think of spa days you may not think about it may not occur to you to sit in a room where you’re surrounde by blocks Himalayan salt and told to breathe; but considering some of the health benefits you may want to check it out. Salt therapy (halotherapy) is an alternative treatment for things like asthma, inflammation, and allergies. According to Montauk Salt Cave,
“The treatment offers a unique, natural therapy that allows you to get a sense of peace and serenity, while simply breathing in the beneficial, negatively-charged, ionized salt particles along with the 84 trace elements and minerals that the salt contains, such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, iodine, bromine, copper, selenium, and iron. These particles help to clear all pollens, viruses, pollutants and toxins of the lungs and nasal passageways, which in essence works to treat and prevent illness. The salt also works to heal the body as soon as its negative ions enter the nasal passageway, which then travel through the respiratory tract and into the bloodstream to be dispersed throughout the body.”
As you relax and breathe in the salty air, enjoy the meditation music playing in the background to quiet your mind and put you at ease. The space you enter also has calming twinkling lights above you and a beautiful salt fireplace to help you feel comfy and cozy. Reserve a session here.
