Relax and Breathe Easy in the Cave

Salina Salt Cave
Relaxation and easier breathing may be as simple as heading back into the cave. The trend of Himalayan Salt Caves is beginning to sweep the country.

Salt therapy, which is known as halotherapy, is natural, safe and non invasive. Reported benefits include relief from a wide range of respiratory distress including asthma, allergies and sinus issues. Others claim it’s helped them with such ailments as cystic fibrosis, insomnia, weakness of the immune system, hypothyrodism and other conditions.

So where can you check out one of these amazing caves? We’ve selected a few locations around the country where you can find out what all the rage is about for yourself.
