When a friend of mine suggested a group of us spent a day at a the salt cave I was intrigued at what this would entail, due to never having heard of such a place. I decided to go along though, as we negotiated a group deal that made it it a very reasonable price. I suffer from sinus problems and have tried a number of different products none of which have helped to the degree I would like them to have. I was very happy when my friend informed me that salt can have beneficial effects on sinus problems.

When the four of us arrived, we went into a medium sized room which was filled with salt. The walls contained hard salt and the floor was covered with soft salt. We each sat on comfortable padded chairs which allowed you to lie back and put your feet up to relax. At first I thought I may get bored and not find the experience relaxing at all but I was proved wrong. Within ten minutes, I was laying back with my eyes closed listening to the relaxing music, imagining I was on holiday and listening to the sound of the waves. I took full advantage of the salt by taking my shoes off and putting my feet into the soft salt on the floor. I felt completely relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed the experience so much I didn’t notice our time was up until my friends come over to inform me it was time to go.

When I arrived home later in the evening I felt very relaxed and had the most peaceful and deep sleep I had experienced in a long time. When I spoke to my friends they had also had an excellent night’s sleep. It seemed too much of a coincidence for the salt to not to have been the reason.

Due to me enjoying the salt cave experience I decided to look on their website and research into the benefits of going on a regular basis. I was surprised at how many there were and how much it could improve your health. The way the salt cave works is you get the benefits by breathing in the salt which is in the atmosphere as well as in the walls and floor. The salt improves your breathing by reducing the mucus which in turn improves your lung function. For those of you suffer from sinus problems you will no longer have blocked noses and therefore stop experiencing migraines, eye pains or other symptoms you experience from having a blocked nose. It will also reduce your need for inhalers if you suffer from asthma due to your lung capacity improving immensely and will strengthen your immune system and improve your health, resulting in you suffering less from colds or coughs.

Of course to receive the benefits of the salt cave you would need to go on a regular basis. Don’t let the cost put you off, think of how much better your life would be with the benefits I have listed above. I think it is definitely money well spent and will be attending on a regular basis.

I would be interested to hear of anyone else who has been to the salt cave or of anything similar which has added benefits to your health.
