$35 for Five 45-Minute Salt-Spa Sessions (Up to $70 Value)

In Galos Caves' carefully constructed microclimate, salt essence diffuses throughout the air. The 100% natural Black Sea salt laces the air and can grant multifarious benefits, such as helping to clear out the respiratory system, ease digestive issues, and alleviate pain from rheumatic disorders. Characterized by low humidity and negative air ionization, the caves' air helps people relax while they lounge in one of the recliners, and it can improve circulation problems and asthmatic symptoms. Sessions start at the beginning of the hour.

Galos Caves

The air is tinged with the smell and taste of salt. Stalactites of salt dangle from the ceiling, and the floor crunches as the group walks through inches of rock salt. After taking a seat, soft music plays and the lights dim while the group relaxes and breathes in the healing salt air. This routine plays out several times a day inside Galos Caves' artificial sea microclimate, which earned it a nod in Time magazine. Using 100% Black Sea salt, the cave's air is laden with the negative ions of salt, which are thought to treat respiratory diseases, digestive tract problems, and dermatological blemishes. From asthma to rheumatic disease, the salt can help the body alleviate the more troubling symptoms of myriad conditions, and the relaxed atmosphere helps remove stress. Kids are welcome in the serene environment, and the staff gives children toys such as shovels, Frisbees, rakes, and plastic french fries to play with in the crystals.

    “This is a very relaxing setting, I wish I could do it a couple of times a week. The staff is really accommodating and friendly. I've been here many times and it's always been a great experience. The Polish buffet at the Jolly Inn is an added bonus if you are at Galos around dinner time. ”

  • “Make sure you walk around. The warmth of the salt under your feet is great.”
