We all need some down time. Time to relax. Time to release some stress. Time to be by yourself. But how do you find this time on a daily basis if you don’t have daycare at your gym or a babysitter to come over for an hour? I found a place where you can do just that. It’s called a salt cave. Not every city has one of these but I have seen advertisements for ones in New York, North Carolina, Florida, California, Minnesota and Tennessee. I visited ashevillesaltcave.com.
What is a salt cave? It’s a room covered from floor to ceiling with Himalayan salt. Supposedly breathing in the salty air has countless health benefits for aiding with conditions ranging from Asthma to Depression. I can’t confirm any of these benefits but I can tell you it’s a peaceful, tranquil environment that’s an escape from the hustle and bustle. Surrounded by salt, water features, peaceful music and low lights you can’t help but feel more relaxed. Sessions last approximately 45 minutes depending on the salt cave and the cost. The best part is these places allow kids! They even bring toys for your little one to play with in the salt. So sit back, relax, read a book or simply enjoy discovery with your little one away from the noisy world. You deserve it!

While visiting a friend in Carlisle, PA, we both enjoyed an hour in a Salt Cave. It was wonderful, warm and very relaxing. I plan to go back as often as possible – the next time I will take my husband.
