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."
