Vermont Salt Cave Spa & Halotherapy Center
Salt Cave Spa Therapy
Vermont Salt Cave Spa & Halotherapy Center is a contemporary, holistic wellness center built around a man-made salt cave composed entirely from 20,000 lbs of Polish rock salt and located in the foothills of Jay Peak in Northern Vermont. The air in the cave is saturated with minerals and negative ions providing a relaxing, de-stressing spa treatment with the added bonus of non-invasive and entirely natural supplementation of micro-elements such as:
Calcium - body resistance, nervous system, bone system
Iodine - anti-sclerotic effect, normalizes fat transformation in the body and protects against radiation.
Iron - a cure for anemia, improves muscle strength and concentration, reduces susceptability to infection.
Sodium - supports acidid-alkaline balance in the body, osmotic pressure and cell energetics.
Bromine - lowers blood pressure, regulates the nervous system.
Trace elements Potassium, Magnesium, Copper, Selenium and more
Only 10 minutes from Jay Peak Resort and 40 minutes from St. Albans, the Vermont Salt Cave Spa offers 45 minute salt therapy sessions for total relaxation. Participants enjoy the well documented health benefits of Salt Therapy, popular in Europe since the first salt cave spa opened in Poland in 1838 but only now starting to gain popularity in the US.
The cave-like interior of our salt chamber or grotto is essentially a cave micro-climate and was created keeping it as natural as possible to ensure maximum health benefits. The halotherapy machine is imported from Poland, the home of modern salt therapy and is in fact rated as a medical machine in Poland. It takes pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride and crushes it into miniscule particles between 1 and 5 microns that are released into the air in specific, controlled quantities for dry salt therapy. These small particles of salt are negatively ionized and bear very high kinetic energy. One can think of dry salt aerosol therapy like a toothbrush that works towards cleansing human airways, removing pathogen agents like airborne pollen and speeding up mucocilliary transport.
The Salt Cave sessions are held every hour on the hour starting at 10 am until 5 pm. We are closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
