Enjoy the Salty Spa Trend in NYC

Eating too much salt may not be recommended, but breathing it in? Well, that’s a different story. Salt treatments of all kinds are steadily increasing in popularity. Floating weightlessly in a salt pool or spending time in a salt cave is meant to enhance the mind, body and soul. Four New York City salt caves are making the trend even more appealing.

Low lit rooms with pink walls made of Himalayan salt blocks encourage guests to sit back and relax in the salt room while breathing deeply. Relax alone in a salt bed or with a group in the salt room, where yoga classes and wellness workshops are also periodically held. The micro-particles of pure white salt are dispersed into the air and enter the airways to detoxify the lungs, sinuses and air passages.
