Salt cave?!

I've been hearing ads on the radio lately for a local "salt cave".  Have any of you heard of these?


Their website says, "...Surrounded by 7 tons of hand mined salt from the Himalayan Mountain ranges....salt therapy, may boost the immune system and reduce chronic fatigue and stress....Salt Cave treatments may improve symptoms of Asthma (mucus plugs, wheezing, congestion), Side effects of smoking, allergies (industrial and household pollutants), lung infections, cystic fibrosis, frequent viral infections, bronchitis, atopic dermatitis, snoring, sleep apnea, poor concentration, ADHD, ear infections, chronic tonsillitis, sinuses, weakened immune systems, thyroid gland disorders, arthritis, skin diseases, acne, eczema, psoriasis."


I would love to have some relief from arthritis, I'm hypo-thyroid, have sleep apnea, chronic tonsillitis, and I'd love to get rid of my sinus issues.... but is this for real?

They charge $25 for a 45 minute session, and offer other package deals for the purchase of 5 or 10 sessions.  I just don't want to be scammed!!

I have a couple of Himalayan salt lamps in my home. Look up information on those and you can see the benefits. That may be something you'd want to consider for your bedroom. A salt cave sounds like a great experience, if nothing else. I'd definitely do it. For that price it would be worth it, that's cheap.

Also, I wouldn't buy a package deal at first, just do it once and see how it makes you feel, then go from there if you think it's worth it. Then you aren't out much money if you felt it did nothing for you.

I got my daughter a salt lamp for Christmas.  A friend of hers had one and loved it.  I got it on Amazon.  I now want to get one for myself.  I don't know anything about a salt cave though or what they call therapy.

Hmm you'd think I'd remember.  I got the Planet Earth series and love watching it. It has a lot of caves in it.   My ex husband bought me some nice lotions  from Israel from the Dead Sea.  It is amazingly good stuff!!  I love the lotion.  I watched a show where people actual float and swim in it for the healing properties.

I've never heard of it so it will be nice to read these replies and see what you find out.  :)

I haven't heard of that brand but I know of a couple health food stores that recommend himalayan salt to be mixed with water to help with all kinds of ailments because of the minerals they contain. I haven't tried it though.

I have a Himalayan salt lamp but then there was a recall because they started on fire so I'm afraid to use it.
