15 Sep Reduce Stress in the Salt Cave
Stress is an inevitable part of life and some stress is necessary to just get us up off the couch sometimes … for instance, to take yourself over to Be Happy Yoga & Salt Cave! We know—because we hear it so many times each week—that Be Happy is a peaceful getaway for many people dealing with busy, stress-filled weeks. Many clients find the salt cave is a great way to get energized and help combat chronic fatigue and tension headaches. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body, helping relieve aches and pains.
When you visit the salt cave, you can kick back and relax with a cozy blanket in one of our zero gravity recliners while a generator emits fine particles of salt and minerals into the air. Breathing in this air helps to clear the sinus passages, ultimately leading to better and more productive breathing. Calming music plays in the background while warm, soft light fills the space and creates color therapy effects.
When owners Susan and Doug Polk designed the cave with Dr. Margaret Smiechowski, originally from Poland where the concept of salt caves originated, they mixed ambient light from the Himalayan salt rocks with colored lights for color therapy effects. The soft light assists with anxiety and depression.
While some people visit the salt cave on their own, it’s great for big groups of friends. Be Happy has hosted many group events for friends in the salt cave, including a 12-year-old birthday party, book clubs, team building events for businesses, church groups, bachelorette parties, and groups of children hosted by Alliance Counseling Associates supporting families with children with autism due to the cave being especially helpful for sensory issues. Be Happy has also hosted many of the tourism visits brought to Bowling Green through the BG Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. Salt cave sessions (especially guided deep relaxations) continue to be one of the favorite activities of these groups visiting our area!
Whatever the occasion, Be Happy is ready and waiting to accommodate your group and help you de-stress. With the holidays approaching, make plans to bring your entire family over to relax and unwind together. Come visit us on the corner of Nashville Rd. and Campbell Lane in the Kroger shopping center, or follow us on social media at @BeHappyBG. We’d love to give you a tour of our entire facility.
