The Asheville Salt Cave is the only Salt Cave in the United States that is sustainable and growing. It is fashioned after the Wieliezka Mine in Poland, the largest Salt Therapy Center in the world. We have recreated the micro-climate of a natural salt cave through the use of a constant temperature, a constant humidity and two natural ionizers that feed the cave with sole’ (a saturated solution of salt and water). Our Salt Cave contains nothing artificial. It consists of materials found in nature, wood, rocks, water and 20 tons of salt rock crystals weighing between 6 oz and 300 pounds each . The floor of the cave is a combination of Polish, Himalayan, Dead Sea Salt. We keep the sea salt to a minimum because of its low ion quality, as compared to the large rocks that make up our walls and ceiling. Come experience Salt Therapy at its best.
