Adirondack Salt Cave is the first business in the North Country and downtown Glens Falls, NY area offering Halotherapy (dry salt therapy) which is a growing trend in holistic wellness. Although there is limited modern scientific research, Halotherapy has been practiced in Europe for respiratory ailments since 1843 and for centuries by native peoples in the Himalayan Mountains.
Our ‘Cave’ is a Himalayan Salt environment incorporating a variety of sights, sounds, lighting and textures to provide a calm, relaxing and rejuvenating experience for the clients.
Our design is like no other. It blends the industrial heritage of a more than 100 year old garment factory with the natural elements of over 7,000 pounds of Himalayan Salt and technology to create a Unique Wellness Experience.
Incorporated into the design are local and regional materials, reclaimed materials and features constructed by local craftspeople and are intended to pay homage to the history of Glens Falls and the surrounding region.
Halotherapy, also known as Dry Salt Therapy, is a holistic approach that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave. Dry salt air is dispersed into an enclosed environment through a unique process generated by a halogenerator. This type of treatment is a safe and effective way of using salt’s natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and super absorbent properties to provide relief for respiratory and skin conditions.
When you heat salt, it becomes super dry, and kinetically more active. This heated and dry pharmaceutical grade salt (sodium chloride) is then crushed into micro-sized particles and dispersed into the air in an enclosed environment. When micro-particles of dry salt is inhaled into the respiratory system, it does its job by absorbing and removing allergens, toxins and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Salt also may reduce any inflammation and open airway passages making it easier to breathe.
During a typical session, clients will relax in lounge chairs while soothing music plays and aerosolized dry salt is dispersed into the room. Regular and consistent Halotherapy, in combination with your fitness routine, may improve oxygen circulation and increase the overall sense of well being.
