More than 15 tons of therapeutic salt cake the floors and walls of Williamsburg Salt Spa. Imported from Poland and Himalayas, these salts enrich the air with minerals and negative ions, simulating the curative atmosphere of natural salt caves. Anti-gravity recliners populate the salt spa, cradling clients who respire the air in an effort to ameliorate respiratory illnesses such as asthma, allergies, sinusitis, bronchitis, COPD or cystic fibrosis.

The salt spa has garnered significant press for its uncommon approach to natural healing, including a feature in Hampton Roads Magazine, which explained that "salt produces healthy negative ions that purify the air, making breathing easier?in contrast to unhealthy positive ions emitted by computers, printers, copiers, and television sets."

Every fall, as the leaves turn orange and the air becomes crisp, owners David and Patricia Hand open up a portion of their operating farm to the general public. Aptly named the Green Hand Farm Park, the agricultural attraction features an 8-acre corn maze that challenges families, students, and office groups to work together to find their way out. The labyrinth takes on a new theme each year?such as a salute to the American soldier?and incorporates facts and clues. As maze participants interrogate corn stalks for directions, hayrides journey to a pumpkin patch and young visitors leap and bound over bales of hay. At night, campfires spring to life for cooking hot dogs and s'mores. Aside from these attractions, there is a farm market to lure visitors.
