Featured in the Health Journal and Williamsburg Magazine for its restorative prowess, Williamsburg Salt Spa steeps patrons in breathable nourishment within its salt-lined cave. Upon entering the dimly lit chamber, salt-seekers relinquish shoes and cell phones to recline in one of eight padded deck chairs as soft music wafts through the 75-degree air. The cave teems with negative ions and minerals, which emanate from salt crystals lining the walls to float through the air and into the body like a misdirected lamp genie. Each salt-borne compound—including potassium, magnesium, and sodium—promises a roster of benefits, such as improving respiratory problems and restoring the body’s ionic balance to factory-issue levels. Those with hyperthyroid issues should consult with a doctor before visiting.
Williamsburg Salt Spa
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."
