As is the case with many great advancements, sheer luck led to the discovery of salt caves’ therapeutic effects. In 1843, a Polish doctor realized that salt miners worked day in and day out without contracting the lung diseases so common to other types of miners and fire breathers. But his findings didn’t make much of an impact until the 1980s, when an early version of the artificial salt cave emerged specifically to treat maladies.
Today, at Salt Therapy of Georgia, visitors experience the effects of salt-cave therapy, also known as halotherapy, in rooms saturated with Dead Sea and Himalayan salt. The trick is teensy salt ions scattered in the air, which can seep into even the narrowest of airways. When they do, they fight inflammation, potentially easing respiratory ailments such as asthma, congestion, and even a common sore throat. And when salt hits skin, it starts alleviating acne, psoriasis, eczema, and other complexion-oriented problems.
So they can fully enjoy the holistic, drug-free method of relaxation, guests at Salt Therapy of Georgia are divided into two rooms, one for adults and one for kids and their adult guardian. The adult room sports loungers, soft lighting, and soothing music, and the kids’ room keeps youngsters busy with quiet activities.
