At the Himalayan Salt Factory we have a Salt Cave unique to the Gold Coast with over 3 tonnes of Himalayan Crystal Mineral Salt and the ambient atmosphere is simply breathtaking. Perhaps instead you could say it is ‘breath giving’ as Salt Therapy has been proven to help with many respiratory health problems such as Asthma.

To put it simply ‘Salt Halo Therapy is breathing in salty air much like walking along the beach when the surf is roughed up and you breathe in the salt air. The Himalayan Salt Factory’s Salt Cave contains Himalayan Crystal Mineral Salt which is over 250 million years old, pure and untouched by today’s pollutants. Salt Therapy is a common and natural treatment worldwide which started in the mines of the Himalaya’s where workers in the mines and caves were significantly much healthier than other people in the region.

The Himalayan Salt Factory’s Salt Cave is a room comfortably fitting 8 chairs large enough to put your feet up and lie back and relax. These chairs can be removed from the Salt Cave for Yoga or Meditation groups also.

How does the Salt Cave work?

The Salt Cave uses a Halo Generator to reproduce and monitor the therapeutic micro-climate of natural Salt Caves. The micro salt particles coming from the medical device is sterile, negatively ionised and saturated with a low concentration of highly dispersed, pharmaceutical grade Salt. Visitors can simply relax in the pleasant ambient atmosphere of the Salt Cave with Himalayan Salt covering the floor and walls. Relax and breathe in the regulated salt which is transported to every part of the respiratory tract; even the smallest bronchioles and alveoli which dissolves and attracts the small, positively charged impurities, which are subsequently able to be either coughed up, or which leave the body during metabolic processes via the bloodstream. The Salt Cave Therapy is safe for all ages.

Other Salt Cave FAQ’s

What is the difference between a salt inhaler and the Salt Cave?

The dry salt aerosol micro climate inside the Salt Therapy Cave is continuously monitored and generated by the Halogenerator’s advanced technology. The concentration, size of the particles, temperature, humidity and level of negative ionised charging is all constantly controlled throughout the session. Salt Inhaler’s are a cheaper alternative, easy to use and portable; however they cannot provide the same quality therapy which plays key role in the healing of the respiratory system.

I thought salt was not good for us?

Common Table Salt is linked to high blood pressure, heart attacks and other illness’ due to the anti-caking agent (E535 and E536) content, being heat-treated and also processed – offering absolutely No health benefits what-so-ever. With Salt Therapy you will breathe the diffused dry saline into the respiratory system, and 100% natural Himalayan Salt, which does not have any anti-caking agent in it.

What results can clients expect?

Since 1940, many doctors have acknowledge that thousands of patients have been successfully treated by Halotherap/Speleotherapy (treatment in natural Salt Caves) in Canada, Russia, Hungary, Romania, Poland, Austria and Germany. After receiving these treatments, patients’ breathing became much easier, lung function and symptoms such as sneezing, coughing and shortness of breath vastly improved, while prescription drug use decreased significantly. Clients can expect to experience positive results in as few as 4-20 days, all depending on their condition.
