I recently visited a salt cave for the very first time and really liked it. It was sort of a grotto filled with large amounts of salt. A variety of salts ― Dead Sea, Himalayan, rock salt, etc. ― filled the climate-controlled space and turned it into a meditative settings.
At first, I was a bit skeptical, but I really needed a short break from the past crazy months, having worked 24/7, seven days a week. And I gotta say, this 50-minute session really did the trick and I got to hit my reset button. The air felt sooooo good, it was extremely quiet and peaceful, I almost fell asleep.
The health benefits aren‘t really scientifically proven, but salt caves are supposed to help with improved breathing, they boost your immune system, help fight infections, anxiety or stress and are good for a juvenile-looking skin. Well, since I only attended one session, I can neither confirm nor deny those theories, but I do know that I will integrate it in my after-workout-routines ‘cause it is soothing and relaxing.
