First Salt Cave Opens in Woodstock
“We are absolutely delighted to be able to bring this service to Woodstock.” says Michael Davis, who owns the facility with his wife, Sherry. According to the couple, salt caves are growing in popularity as halotherapy—a health treatment that involves breathing salty air—is proving to be a dependable form of natural healing.
The floor of the Woodstock Salt Cave is covered with two inches of white Polish salt, and its walls are covered with pink Himalayan salt. The temperature inside the cave is kept at 68 degrees to maintain the anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties of the salt. The cave features a fountain to circulate saline water, a sculpted ceiling, special lighting, calming music and a halogenerator to grind pharmaceutical salt that is blown into the air to aid in creating a relaxing environment.
After researching several builders, the Davises chose Beata Hatley of PureSolSpa to build their salt cave. Hatley owns and operates a salt cave and spa in Boerne, Texas, and her company has built more than 200 salt caves.
The Woodstock Salt Cave is open Wednesdays through Sundays year round. One 45-minute halotherapy session costs $25, and discount packages offer six sessions for the price of five. The cave is located within Forever and a Day gift store at 7830 Hwy 92, Woodstock.
