HIMALAYAN SALT CAVE
Be Happy Yoga & Salt Cave is a man-made cave built with over 6 tons of Himalayan Salt. It is modeled after the European Caves that have been in existence for hundreds of years. The unusual healing properties of Himalayan Salt were discovered in Poland when they found that the salt miners were in better health than the general population.
Our one-of-a-kind custom built salt cave may help alleviate symptoms of asthma, allergies, respiratory issues, anxiety, depression and many other ailments. We also offer special session options for yoga, meditation and therapeutic massage IN the salt cave. The air in the cave is treated by a specialized halogenerator, which infuses the air with microparticles of pharmaceutical grade salt.
In addition to Himalayan Salt, Be Happy Yoga & Salt Cave also utilizes color therapy during the salt session. The fiber optic lighting subtly changes color and assists in the calming and relaxation process while in the cave.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Salt therapy (also known as Halotherapy) is becoming more widely recognized in the U.S. as a natural, drug-free supplement or alternative to common medical treatments. Simply put, halotherapy emulates the conditions inside a natural salt cave by infusing the air with tiny particles of pharmaceutical-grade salt. These particles are not only safe to breathe but also have been shown to alleviate symptoms of various ailments. The addition of Himalayan crystal salts on the walls and floor of the cave further enhances the experience and helps to create a calm, relaxing environment.
A session helps to relax you, relieve you of stress, assist in clearing up sinus issues, allergies and respiratory issues, and helps improve skin conditions, psoriasis, acne, and other conditions.

Salt therapy is perfectly safe for women at any stage of pregnancy. Halotherapy is a great natural alternative to over-the-counter allergy medications. Because pregnancy can affect women in different ways, you’re invited to consult with your doctor if you have specific questions or concerns, but generally speaking, a visit to the cave is as safe as breathing the salt air by the beach.
The salt is pure and anti-bacterial anti-fungal & anti-viral. It is difficult to overstay your welcome in the salt cave – some of our clients visit daily!
A regular salt cave session consists of reclining in a zero-gravity chair. Yoga in the Salt Cave is offered by appointment (pick your time) or check our yoga schedule for additional pop up Yoga in the Salt Cave classes!
