Kids Salt Room: to make your child’s treatment experience enjoyable and fun the room is designed as a play room. We recommend that your child engages in a calm play such as playing in salt, reading a book, coloring or going up and down the slide.

Adult Salt Room: you are relaxing on our zero-gravity recliners, lights are dimmed, mellow music is playing in the background. This is a quiet room therefore, we ask that you refrain from talking on the phone, to each other, or walking around the room. Room temperature is kept between 70-74°F; cozy blankets are provided. May bring your own blanket if desired.
Will I see clouds of salt in the air during a session?
The salt is ground up into the very fine particles which makes it very hard to see in the air, however, if you are wearing dark clothing you may see salt powder on you after the session and may also taste the salt on your lips/skin.
Who can attend the Kids Salt Room?
Room set up is appropriate for children 2 months old up to 7 years old. However, many kids of older age found the room to be fun. Please keep in mind, our main goal is to deliver high quality salt therapy, and the set-up of the room is aimed to make the process more enjoyable for your child. A supervising adult must be present with a child at all times.
How many kids are allowed per session?

To ensure the highest quality salt therapy delivery and considering the size of the room no more than 3 children and up to 2 supervising adults are allowed during any single session. Please note, only one accompanying adult is admitted free of charge regardless of the number of children.
Will I be sharing the Adult room with someone else?
Yes, you may be sharing the room with other guests. The Adult Salt Room is a group treatment room and can accommodate up to 6 guests per single session.
Where do I leave my personal belongings?
Lockers are provided so you can securely lock your valuables. There is an area where you leave your shoes and outwear. You may bring your cell phone, earphones or similar electronic devices without keyboards or keys into the sessions as long as they are switched to a silent mode. You may also bring a reading material in.
If your child wants to bring his own toy, he can but please keep in mind we are not responsible for any lost or damaged toys.
How many sessions do I need?
Anywhere from 10 to 20 closely spaced apart sessions has been recommended once or twice a year to achieve long lasting results. You may start breathing better after the first visit and notice your skin improving after about the third visit. Conditions of a chronic nature may require an ongoing maintenance to help manage the symptoms. It is important to understand the results and the number of sessions varies individually because each person is unique.
Think about the idea of going to the gym, the more often you work out, the faster you get fit thus achieve your goal. We strongly encourage you to follow the recommended regimen to get the most out of your treatment sessions.
If you are looking to generally de-stress and relax, enhance your overall well-being you may come as often as desired.
Can I or my children get sick from being around other people who are sick (ex. coughing, sneezing)?
The answer is NO :-) Don’t worry about contracting any illness here at our salt cave. Salt takes care of all of it, and we do the rest.
During a treatment session, air is being actively infused with salt. If someone sneezes, coughs or simply talks, the floating dry salt particles immediately trap these offenders in the air and destroy them.
The toys in our Kids room as well as any touch areas are in constant contact with salt during the session thus undergoing continuous disinfection.
What is more, all high touch areas and toys are also thoroughly cleaned with a disinfecting agent after each session. Each salt room undergoes a full air exchange in between the sessions.
