The Salt Cave, Byron Bay
‘My racking coughs can go on for many months after a cold. To discover this place, how in a few sessions my disability shortens, is to be very grateful. It is a place of purity, calm and great healing. Many sufferers of chronic chest disease benefit from this magic zone.’
– Dr Liz Elliott, Mullumbimby
Salt therapy (halotherapy) offers relief for respiratory and certain skin conditions. It is also helpful for general health improvement and detox. In 1843 a Polish doctor discovered that saltmine workers had excellent respiratory health. The mine was converted to an underground spa for Europeans to visit and enjoy the healing benefits.
The Salt Cave in Byron Bay has an advanced halogenerator that simulates the natural salt cave microclimate through careful climatic controls and the generation of minute salt particles. While relaxing in a peaceful, negatively ionised environment, customers inhale dry, salt-enriched air deep down into the lungs.
Salt therapy may provide symptomatic relief for many conditions, including colds and flu, asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, cough, hayfever and allergies.
