Bloomington Salt Cave
Experience the rejuvenating effects of halotherapy while relaxing in Bloomington's only pink Himalayan salt cave.
For those who are new to salt caves, the experience is all about halotherapy, or salt therapy. Salt has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory benefits. In a salt cave, a fine, dry salt aerosol is dispersed into the cave, which is constructed of pink Himalayan salt walls and beach-like salt pebble flooring. The aerosol is both inhaled & absorbed through the skin — the salt absorbs excess mucus, allergens, and foreign elements, clears blockages in the lungs, bronchi, and alveoli, kills microbes and the spreading of bacteria & viruses, and normalizes the pH of skin, thus inducing reparative & regenerative processes in the body's largest organ. Negative ions in the salt aerosol and the pink Himalayan salt walls & floor are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost daytime energy. In addition to the above benefits, the salt cave experience has a meditative quality to it, allowing participants to sink to a deeper level of restorative relaxation that feels quite profound afterward.
