Harness the Healing Properties of Himalayan Salt and Infrared Saunas

Salt cave therapy is a passive form of therapy—there are no moving parts. Himalayan Salt Cave Therapy involves using the beneficial, natural ions generated by Himalayan salt when it is warmed. These natural ions are the same as those generated by waves crashing on the shoreline, rainstorms or waterfalls and cleanse the air of dust, pollution and pollens. They also counteract the harmful effects of the modern world’s massive EMF wave transmissions generated by cell towers and other radio waves. Salt cave therapy means cleaner air, easier breathing, and a sense of wellness and relaxation.

Sauna zen makes it easy to create your own Salt Caves

To customize your personal Sauna Zen Salt Cave simply choose your heating element (Carbon Fiber Infrared or Ceramic Infrared), then select the size of cabinet for your salt cave (one person-two person-four person) and order.

Salt Caves with Carbon Fiber Infrared Sauna Heating

Sauna Zen’s Salt Caves with Full Spectrum Ceramic Tube Infrared Sauna Heating provide the additional health benefits of FIR, MIR and NIR Infrared waves while simultaneously maximizing the natural ion healing properties of Himalayan Salt.

Why our Salt Caves have Built-In Saunas

By combining the health benefits of the salt cave with infrared sauna heating technology, you end up with a Salt Cave Sauna that is beyond therapeutic–the Sauna Zen Salt Cave Sauna–the ultimate in-home salt cave. The heat from the sauna turbocharges the natural ion output of the Himalayan salt in the cave. Salt Cave Saunas combine the benefits of traditional infrared saunas, with the healing properties of Himalayan salt. In use, they work just like a sauna. We supply you with Himalayan Salt Dome Lamps to place on the floor of your sauna and the heat from the sauna releases the negative ions from the bricks. This allows for a natural detoxification process when placing your feet on the salt lamp dome.  Salt Sauna Cave salt therapy sessions are the ultimate in relaxation

Why Owning Your Own Salt Cave Makes Sense

Sauna Zen’s salt cave saunas take passive salt therapy to another level. The infrared sauna heating elements use a wave length that causes their heat to penetrate deeply into the body, and when combined with the therapeutic natural ions from the supplied Himalayan Salt Domes, flush the body of toxins acquired from everyday living.

Over time, these toxins accumulate in the body via fat cells. The salt cave sauna causes these toxins to break free from the fat cells so you can release them through your skin as you sweat. Substances like nicotine, alcohol, metals, and other pollutants can be held onto by the body–our Salt Cave Saunas help you rid your body of these unwelcome substances while the natural therapeutic effects of Himalayan salt soothe asthma, allergies and other breathing symptoms and relieve stress.

Sauna Zen’s Salt Cave Sauna is like having a sauna on steroids. Owning your personal, in-home salt cave sauna means you will use it more often than going to a salt cave spa so your wellness benefits will multiply.

Salt Caves FAQ

What does Salt Cave Therapy do?

At Sauna Zen we define salt cave therapy as a passive form of wellness.  Salt cave therapy relies on the natural ions Himalayan salt releases when warmed.  These ions counter EMF waves and clean the air of pollen, dust and unhealthy microbes.  These natural ions are found at the ocean when waves crash on the shore or at the base of a waterfall.  They enhance feelings of calmness and relaxation and impart a sense of well-being.

What do you mean that your salt cave's include infrared sauna heating?

While we were in the planning stages of building our salt caves for in-home use, we realized two things:

1. Salt cave therapy relies on the natural negative ions that Himalayan salt produces.  The warmer the Himalayan salt, the more ions it produces.

2. These ions disperse rapidly so the closer in proximity you are to the Himalayan salt the better, and if you are in an enclosed space with Himalayan salt the benefits increase even further.

Since we already had a line of saunas, it made a lot of sense for us to combine the two.  Recently, we’ve upgraded all of our saunas to be full-spectrum units which means you also receive the therapeutic benefits of Chromatherapy. 

What are natural negative ions?

Negative ions are naturally produced by Himalayan salt. They have been found quite effective in reducing asthma, allergies, and other breathing problems, in addition to soothing irritated skin and restoring ionic balance within the body. These ions counterbalance Electric Magnetic Frequencies (EMFs) and positive ions for a better life balance. When used as recommended, both the salt cave sauna and the salt wall panel salt cave will increase the negative ion count of the surrounding air as much as 600%.

Do salt caves work?

Salt caves rely on the natural ions released by Himalayan salt when it is warmed. These natural ions clean the air of dust, pollen and other harmful microbes as well as counter act EMF waves. This benefits those who suffer allergies, asthma and other related respiratory conditions. The natural ions also impart a sense of well-being, calmness and relaxation.

Are salt caves sanitary?

Commercial salt caves found in spas are only as sanitary as the last person using them before you. Sauna Zen offers salt cave products specifically designed for in-home use. This means you always know who used the salt cave last and can control the sanitary conditions of your personal salt cave

What are salt cave sessions?

A salt cave session consists of the time you spend in a negative ion inducing environment. If you choose to go the Salt Cave Sauna route, your sessions will likely range from 30 minutes to an hour—the same amount of time you would normally spend in an infrared sauna with the additional benefits of maximum exposure to negative ions. If you choose the Salt Cave Salt Wall Panel option, your sessions can be as long as you want—all that’s required is that you position yourself in close proximity to the salt wall panels.

Are salt caves cold?

Naturally occurring underground salt caves are usually around 70° F.  Sauna Zen’s approach to salt caves for the home is a bit different in that we use sauna heating elements to get the temperature to around 100° F which unlocks the natural occurring ions found in Himalayan salt.  These ions clean the surrounding air of dust, pollen and other allergens and impart a sense of peacefulness and relaxation.

Can Himalayan salt dehumidify a room?

Yes, it can.  Rock salt, including Himalayan salt, is a very effective dehumidifier as it is a hygroscopic substance which means it draws water out of the air and stores it through absorption
