Constructed of nearly 7 tons of pure Himalayan Salt, the Lexington Salt Cave offers the ambiance of a glowing pink salt cave combined with a state of the art Halotherapy system that infuses the air with a dry aerosol of microscopic, 99.9% pure pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride particles at a concentration range of 5 - 10 milligrams per cubic feet of air.
The salty air is breathed deep into the lungs and system, absorbing bacteria, pollen, and other toxins, allowing the body to naturally rid itself of these pollutants and strengthen its immunity. The cave also offers antioxidant properties, helping to absorb toxins ingested by our bodies, while allowing our minds and eyes to rest from cell phone, computer and screen use. Just like time spent in nature or at the beach has been shown to relieve stress, improve mood and alleviate sleeplessness, among other benefits, so can time in the Salt Cave! Additional benefits include relief from stress, anxiety and athlete recovery. The overall health and wellness perks of spending 45 minutes in a Lexington Salt Cave Halotherapy session can be compared to spending a week at the beach!

If you have not been vaccinated or feel more comfortable wearing a mask for any other reason, we thank you for doing so to protect yourself or others.

First discovered in the salt mines of Poland, and later recognized as an accepted alternative health treatment, Halotherapy is an ancient, natural, complementary therapy that involves exposure to and inhalation of dry, salt-infused air. Salt Therapy has been shown to alleviate symptoms of many ailments of body and mind, such as:
How? Dry, microscopic particles of 99.9% pure pharmaceutical-grade sodium chloride are diffused into the air in a restorative environment, with nearly 7 tons of pink Himalayan salt on the walls and floors. Your body inhales the anti-inflammatory, microscopic salt particles, which are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and free of dust and allergens. Salt is also proven to suppress the spread of viruses.
These anti-inflammatory salt particles absorb toxins and help the body naturally remove them. They penetrate deep into the airways, calming and relaxing internal muscles and allowing the nervous system to rebalance, and encouraging cellular regeneration. Customers can enjoy the therapy while relaxing, meditating, receiving a massage or other treatment, doing yoga, or just napping.
Many report an increased feeling of well-being, clarity and rejuvenation following a session. Studies across the world have shown the efficacy of Halotherapy, however always check with your doctor before changing your medical routine. It is a safe and enjoyable natural healing experience for both body and mind! We invite you to come see for yourself!

The sessions are communal in nature, and are currently limited to 5 people. This allows plenty of room for social distancing. We follow CDC Guidelines and State & Local recommendations for masking indoors, but vaccinated people may remove masks in the cave for halotherapy. The air is constantly circulated in the cave. It is believed that salt has anti-viral properties, but this is only beginning to be studied. We request that you do not wear strong scents that may bother others. You’ll arrive a few minutes before your session, remove and stash your shoes and personal articles (you may bring your personal articles or purse into the cave, but we recommend traveling light for convenience!). Once you enter the cave, you’ll relax in one of our zero-gravity chairs or settle in on the salt floor if you prefer. The soft pink light and relaxing music along with some quiet white noise from the Halogenerator will lull you into a relaxed state, so just sit back and enjoy the peace for 45 minutes! We will gently awaken you if needed at the end of the session! Feel free to bring a blanket or eye pillow for maximum comfort!
You may wear comfortable clothing that you can relax in! The cave can feel cool, even in the summer as the dry air is kept at a constant 72 degrees. We also recommend a clean pair of socks, if you have tender feet. but can provide them if you forget. Feel welcome to bring a clean blanket, eye pillows or other comfort items to cozy up with!
Reading may be difficult (as it’s very low light) and phone use in the Cave is not suggested other than to take a few photos prior or after the session. We recommend allowing the soft music and white noise of the Halogenerator to lull you into a meditative or sleep state. Many people even nap during their session! You’ll be surprised at how quickly time passes!
We provide tissues for each space in the Cave and it’s not that unusual for the dry salt-infused air to cause a tickle in your sinuses or throat while it helps to break up blockages. The antimicrobial nature of the salt will help to neutralize any germs. Just use the tissue to cover your mouth and nose and be respectful of others in the space. The Cave air is ventilated and air constantly circulated. Following each session, we wipe down chairs with and antimicrobial cleaner.
Most people report feeling a deep sense of relaxation and rejuvenation. You may notice your sinuses are more open, and even feel as if you have a clearer mind. We recommend drinking plenty of water throughout the day as the salt will pull water from your system as it continues to help to clear out toxins, bacteria or mucus. Many tell us they sleep better and see improvements in allergies, asthma or skin disorders, as well as symptoms of COPD and cystic fibrosis with regular sessions. While patients with these ailments report improvement of symptoms, Halotherapy isn’t necessarily a replacement for medication. Always ask your doctor before changing your prescribed medical regime.
