A century ago, the ailing sought relief in the naturally occurring salt caves of Canada, Europe, and Asia. Today, visitors to Hygea Wellness Co & Salt Room follow in the footsteps of their afflicted predecessors. Seven tons of kosher Dead Sea salt frosts the walls and floors of a cavernous room where customers relax and inhale its healing effects or season the rims of their margaritas. The fine salt aerosol, chock-full of minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium, can help to keep skin youthful, as well as alleviating breathing problems. The salt-filled air allows negative ions in the body, diminishing free radicals and bacteria that contribute to allergies, asthma, and even the common cold. The cave safely restores health to adults and kids alike.
In addition to detoxing, sauna sessions may also help with weight loss and reducing muscle pain and general stress. A heated, dry sauna helps purify skin and improve circulation during 20-minute sessions. Towels and robes are provided, and customers may read inside the sauna during treatment. Relaxation continues during massages, body wraps, and salt scrubs, plus reflexology and facials.
