In 1843 doctor Felix Boczkowski formulated that the presence of the air in the salt mines in Wieliczka in Poland saturated with dry salt particles caused healing effects on people with pulmonary and respiratory problems.
Today the Wieliczka Salt Mine is operating as the largest Underground Rehabilitation and Treatment Center. They are the world leader in providing innovative rehabilitation and treatment of respiratory diseases by combining both the natural microclimate of the underground salt excavations and the best practices of contemporary medicine.
Using the Wieliczka model, The Williamsburg Salt Spa is almost identical in terms of physical, chemical and biological conditions that are present in the mine which creates a positive effect on health. The appearance and structure of the mine excavation has been reproduced with extraordinary care, and the ventilation system that is used maintains temperature, humidity and the unique microclimate that prevails in the mine.
In 2008 Williamsburg Salt Spa has imported over 15 tons of therapeutic salt from Poland and Pakistan in order to create a unique microclimate rich in minerals, such as: sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, bromine and iodine. During your 45 minute therapeutic session you will improve your health by relaxing in comfortable recliners, listening to the soothing sounds of music and breathing air that is saturated with these beneficial minerals. The air temperature inside the Salt Room is 75 F and the humidity is between 40-50%. To create the Salt Room, apart from salt, we used only natural hypoallergenic materials: wood, plaster, natural resin and organic glues.
