Himalayan Salt Cave

A Relaxation Chamber for Body and Soul

The Pyramid Salt Cave was the first public Himalayan salt cave built in the United States. The Pyramid Salt Cave is crafted of natural materials and 16,000 pounds of Himalayan salt and designed to look like a European salt mine. The cave has a cozy feeling with an electric fireplace in the corner, glowing lanterns and the warm pink glow of the salt lamps reflecting off the cave walls creating an environment of protection and nurturance.

During your salt cave session, you recline in zero gravity chairs, listen  to a relaxing sound track, cover up with a cozy blanket, watch the lights twinkle overhead and breathe in the many benefits of the salt air.  We consider our cave a “Relaxation Chamber for Body and Soul”. The relaxation soundtrack features the sounds of the ocean and the soft music invokes a state of deep relaxation. This powerful combination of the environment and sound creates an opportunity for people to get into a deeply meditative state of awareness and healing.

The Pyramid Salt Cave is open every day during regular business hours.  The cave sessions run every hour on the hour and seats up to ten people at a time.  While we do welcome walk-ins, reservations are always recommended to ensure a seat is available.

  • The Salt Cave session is $15 per person and lasts one hour.
  • Private cave rental is $130 per hour and can seat up to 10 people
  • You can have your massage or other wellness service in the cave for an additional $100 up charge.

What are the benefits of a salt cave?

The Himalayan salt is the anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial and contains 84 minerals and trace elements that the body needs. The benefits of salt therapy are wide-ranging. Salt levels affect our cell activity, energy and blood sugar levels. Scientists are studying the release of negative ions from the salt which acts as a natural detoxifier. In other parts of the world, salt cave therapy, also known as speleotheraphy is used to treat a variety of medical conditions. The calming and detoxifying affects can support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. Additional benefits are reduced stress and headaches, increased energy and better sleep patterns. Salt ions purify the air and may reduced physical ailments.
