What is a Salt Cave?

  

Here at the Spartanburg Salt Cave our goal is to mimic the environment inside a mine. In the 19th century, Polish researchers noticed that salt miners were not having the same severe respiratory ailments that other types of miners were, most notably coal miners, this prompted a closer look at salt miners. As it turned out not only were the salt miners healthier than their colleagues, they were actually healthier than the general public. This was observed again during World War II. Many of the Eastern European salt mines were used as bomb shelters, sometimes housing people for days on end. When they came out of the salt caves, many experienced easier breathing, especially those with asthma. In the 1960's Halotherapy started gaining traction in Europe and has since started spreading around the globe, just now making its way to upstate South Carolina in the form of the Spartanburg Salt Cave. 

Salt Cave Sessions and Benefits...

  

Spartanburg Salt Cave’s therapy room can hold 5 people at a time. While walk-ins are welcome, we recommend having an appointment to ensure you get a spot. You’ll enjoy a 45-minute session, during which salt air will be pumped into the room to aid with respiratory and skin ailments. You can see results from minor discomforts in one to eight sessions, while more than a dozen sessions are recommended for positive results. Call 864-707-2353 to discover the benefits of halotherapy today. 

Can the Salt Cave Help Me?

  

The Spartanburg Salt Cave can most definitely help you! Check to see if you have one of the more common illnesses which salt can help relieve on our Symptoms page. If your condition is not listed, that's OK. This is just a list of some of the more common conditions known to do well with Halotherapy and does not mean we cannot help you too. 

What Do I Wear?

  

No special clothing is required. You can come in wearing shorts and a tank top or long sleeves and pants. If you are trying to see benefits from respiratory conditions, clothing choice does not matter. With skin conditions we recommend having more skin exposed, especially if you can expose the affected area. However, clothing is required as it is a group room. The temperature is a steady 72 ⁰ F, so you won't get hot or sweaty. We do provide blankets, just in case you get cool.

Do You Accept Walk-ins?

  

Yes, we do take walk-ins. We'd love to know you're coming before hand, but if you forget or can't give us a call we'll take you as long as the session is not full. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your desired session time. Sessions start every hour, on the hour. 

Can We Book the Whole Room?

  

Yes! We love having parties and other large groups in. Our salt room holds 5 comfortably and 8 if you're willing to get cozy on the floor. Call and ask us about group rates and party packages.
