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.
Due to the fast growth of technology and environmental pollution, more and more people suffer from allergies, asthma and civilization diseases. Outside air in cities and even mountain microclimate are weak in iodine and other elements important for our health. Dust, cigarette fumes, our modern convenient electrical appliances, such TVs, computers, high-voltage networks and external pollution produce large quantities of positive ions creating electrical imbalance in the air.
When negative ion concentration is lowered, and people inhale more positive ions from the air, it can cause headaches, lethargy, dizziness, nausea, depression, indigestion, and irritability. It is extremely important to add this precious element, negative ions, back into the air for optimal health. The concentration of negative ions is naturally higher around waterfalls and by the ocean; when water droplets are dispersed, an electrical charge is created. The concentration of light ions in the mountains is 20 times higher than in the cities.
The antibacterial influence of negative ions in the air has been proven in the hospitals by increasing the concentration of negative ions in the air. The percentage of harmful bacteria in the air was significantly lowered causing patient‘s wounds to heal faster and convalescence of the patients was shorter.
Research has proven the therapeutic values of salt caves and their positive influence in the treatment of such diseases as
affecting: nose, ear, throat, esophagus and sinuses
asthma, bronchial tubes inflammation
chronic obstructive bronchitis
chronic inflammation of lungs
chronic inflammation of sinuses
dust disease (pneumoconiosis)
under-active cutwater gland
Heart and cardio-vascular diseases
inadequate blood pressure
insufficient circulation of blood
post heart attack conditions
Illnesses of digestive system
duodenal and gastric ulcer
inflammation of large intestines
Vegetative nervous system malfunction
general nervousness and exhaustion
deepens and slows down breathing
improves the ability to concentrate
brings the feeling of freshness and satisfaction
