Frequently asked questions
What do the negative Ions that Himalayan salt emits actually do?
Here are links with helpful information.
Where does the Himalayan Salt come from?
Himalayan salt is mostly mined at the Khewra Salt Mine in Khewra, Jhelum District,
Punjab, which is situated in the foothills of the Salt Range hill system in the Punjab
province of Pakistan. It is located about 310 km (190 mi) from the Himalayas, 260 km
(160 mi) from Lahore, and 298 km (185 mi) from Amritsar, India.
Are there any side effects?
Salt therapy is 100% natural, safe, and a drug free treatment that has no known associated negative side effects. Some people may experience a mild skin irritation that will disappear after a few sessions. Some may notice a mild taste of salt on their lips, while others may experience a mild tickle in their throat, which can be easily treated by sipping warm water after the session.
What are health benefits associated with Himalayan Salt Therapy?
A salt cave is an oasis of fresh air, far different from the heavily polluted environment in which we live. As an alternative treatment, salt therapy may additionally help those who suffer from:
Allergies, asthma, bronchitis, congestion, cystic fibrosis, relapsing pneumonia,
Migraines, poor concentration, depression, anxiety,
Insomnia, snoring (sleep apnea),
Ear, nose and throat infections,
Acne, psoriasis, eczema, glaucoma,
Frequent viral infection, weakened immune systems,
And counters the effects of smoking and pollution.

Improve lung function,
Help clear unwanted inhaled particles from lungs.
Do I need a reservation?
No, but it is highly recommended to schedule your desired time in order to ensure you are able to attend the session you want. Walk-in’s are welcome.
How many sessions do I need?
The number of salt therapy sessions required to see an improvement in a particular condition varies from person to person receiving salt therapy. This is because we are all unique - age, general health history, varying degrees of conditions (mild, moderate or severe). Some people use salt therapy as purely a preventative measure to avoid common colds and flu and other respiratory viruses. Other people like to use it as an effective treatment method for specific condition, like asthma. For this reason we cannot predict how many salt therapy sessions each person will need.
Can I bring water into The Salt & Serenity Grotto?
No fluids/beverages are allowed in our caves. We ask you not to take any food into the sessions with you as well.
Does this increase my sodium levels?
Salt therapy will not affect your sodium level. Breathing in salty air is not the same as ingesting salt.
If I am pregnant is it safe for me to be in the salt therapy room?
Yes. Salt therapy is 100% drug-free with no side effects. Salt therapy is suitable for babies and we offer free salt therapy for baby with any paying adult.
Is Salt Therapy painful?
No. Salt therapy is a completely natural and pain-free treatment. Sit back in our salt therapy room and relax, renew and refresh.
Is there clinical research to support Salt Therapy?
Other people are coughing in the salt therapy room. Is this OK?
