Saltana Cave hearkens back to an ancient tradition of spending time in salt caves and mines to treat respiratory ailments. Benefits of breathing in negatively charged ionized salt and other trace minerals may include improving the symptoms of asthma, allergies, acne, and eczema as well as decreasing the side effects of smoking. What’s more, Saltana Cave looks otherworldly—its literal tons of Himalayan salt rock create a relaxing environment with their pink glow. Soothing background music and zero-gravity lounge chairs help you get zen in this accessible retreat.

Long Island Nail & Skin Care Institute president Dana Caruso juggles a busy schedule. When she’s not working behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week or appearing on Access Hollywood, she champions a science-based curriculum that helps students to master everything from makeup to laser services. Once students gain a sufficiently diverse skill set from the school portion of the center, they apply what they've learned inside the Institute’s spa. There, professionals supervise students as they perform facials, airbrush tanning, and body sugaring, a treatment mainly intended to attract mad hatters who run out of sweetener.

Like an enchanted glacial tunnel, The Salt Cavern?s sparkling white walls pulse with gauzy pinks and purples, as crystalline lanterns illuminate powdery tufts of salt covering the floor. But this fairy-tale ambiance belies the cavern?s meticulously calibrated atmosphere: highly concentrated saline aerosol regularly circulates throughout the chamber in an effort to soothe health ailments such as asthma, allergies, or psoriasis.

Owners William and Eva boast backgrounds in the medical industry, but grew disillusioned with chemical therapies after investigating the benefits of salt therapy, a practice that originated in Poland nearly 200 years ago. Now the duo invites clients to experience salt?s therapeutic and calming benefits in their softly lit chamber. In addition to the salt?s calming vapors, William and Eva offer deepened relaxation with yoga sessions) in the cave, and enforce a tranquil atmosphere in which clients can nap, meditate, or quietly impersonate the Morton?s Salt girl.
