Salt's healing properties explain why sea-dwelling dolphins have smooth skin, rarely contract laryngitis, and avoid keyboard-induced carpal tunnel syndrome. Emulate the prosperous porpoise with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a 45-minute salt-therapy session at Salt Cave (a $45 value). This Groupon expires in two months.
Following a centuries-old tradition practiced by medieval monks and documented by Greek philosophers, Salt Cave shelters clients in a therapeutic space with walls, floor, and ceiling covered with a fine layer of Himalayan salt. Warm, dry air filled with aerosolized salt permeates the room, inside which guests sit in comfortable lounge chairs and soak up a vapor thought to help heal stodgy sinuses, solve skin problems, and cheer up lonely pepper shakers. Calming music and low light settle nerves, and the chamber is sonically locked and barred to keep out noises and banshees. A designated children's area gives tykes a place to play while clients inhale halotherapeutic air.
