How does Salt Cave therapy works? Natural deposits 0f salt are derived from evaporated ancient lakes and seas, and sourced from deep underground caverns. The unrefined rock salt, primarily sodium chloride, also includes varying concentrations of other mineral salts such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and manganese which all have additional therapeutic properties. Modern use of salt therapy started in Germany, when Dr.Karl Hermann Spannage noticed improvement in the health of his patients after they hid in local caves to escape heavy bombing during WWII. The salt cave itself is controlled holistic environment that simulates the microclimate of naturally occurring salt cave. This microclimate environment is ionized and saturated with a low vapor concentration and highly dispersed Himalayan salt. As the salt air is inhaled, it travels through your respiratory system where the active minerals can provide relief for those with sinus and breathing ailments like Asthma and Bronchitis. Salt therapy may also aid in strengthening the immune system, decreasing mental fatigue and reducing stress.
What role does the water cascade play? The salt room’s water cascade is built of softwood and special equipment designed to pump brine at a slow steady pace. As the brine gently trickles down the branches, it evaporates producing a saline vapor effect within the cave. The room air is enhanced with natural mineral elements derived from salt like iodine, bromine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, copper, chloride, selenium, and many more (up to 84 different elements). These naturally occurring elements are very beneficial to our health and well-being. The water cascade creates a higher concentration of negative ions which is naturally found around flowing water or ocean environments. The water cascade replicates this environment and allows for the absorption of negative ions by our bodies to strengthen our immune system and help balance our body PH levels.
