A Unique Solution For Your Symptoms
When it comes to holistic wellness, our salt sanctuary may improve the way you feel.
Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, has been used for centuries as a method to clean the air, detoxify the body, and provide relief from ailments. Salt is known to help the body naturally balance pH, improve hydration through trace minerals, reduce muscle cramps, balance blood sugar, and much more. If you suffer from respiratory conditions, allergies, or skin issues, our salt sanctuary may provide the atmosphere you need to improve the way you feel and relieve some of your symptoms.
The Salt Sanctuary at Ocean’s Edge Salon & Spa provides our guests with a 30 OR 45-minute sessions full of the healthful benefits of salt.
Salt Therapy (Halotherapy) Promotes Wellness and Relaxation
Pollution, allergens and toxins are being emitted to the air we breathe every day, leading to an increase in respiratory and skin issues for many people. Also, the constant use of our phones, computers, and televisions can also produce unfavorable effects on our bodies. With all these things making up our “normal” day, spending 45 minutes experiencing halotherapy would be a welcome occasion.
Our salt sanctuary uses a specially designed generator that pumps a fine concentration of pharmaceutical grade, dry salt throughout the room. While doing nothing special other than being in the atmosphere, clients breathe in micro-particles of salt to the respiratory tract, allowing the salt to cleanse the airways and lungs of mucus, bacteria, and other impurities.
The practice of using salt as a cleansing and healing therapy has been around for centuries and the use of halotherapy has been a growing movement throughout the United States as the benefits become more evident.
We encourage you to visit our salt sanctuary for a truly unique and healing salt therapy experience. Whether you are visiting Surfside Beach and are looking for a relaxing experience on a rainy day OR you are a resident exploring holistic therapies for wellness, you’ll find a great option at our salt sanctuary.

Q: What is unique about a trip to The Salt Sanctuary at Ocean’s Edge Salon & Spa?
A: Our salt sanctuary is filled with hundreds of pounds of beautiful salt that has been hand mined out of the Himalayan mountains. The room is designed to make you feel as though you have landed on the beach at sunset and you’re resting in your “beach chair”, a zero-gravity chair. Once the session begins, the lights dim and the sound of ocean waves lulls you into a state of zen. Just kick back, breathe deeply, and enjoy your journey!
Q: What are the benefits of a salt cave session?
A: The relaxation portion is just a plus to the overall benefits of the salt therapy in the cave. During your session, we pump in micronized salt that is so fine it can dive into the nooks & crannies of your system that medicines can’t reach! It performs like a sponge to bacteria and toxins, aiding in better breathing, reduced inflammation, and a stronger immune system. Eczema, psoriasis, asthma, COPD, Long COVID, allergies, and arthritis can benefit from salt therapy and provide overall wellness.
Q: What do I wear inside the salt cave?
A: Nothing special is required. We recommend you dress comfortably so you can unwind and soak in the experience.
Q: What is the temperature of the salt cave?
A: The cave temperature maintains a comfortable atmosphere between 68 and 72 degrees. However, sometimes when we relax, our body temperature can drop, so you can become chilly. You are welcome to bring a blanket with you, or we have some available.

A: The salt cave allows up to 4 people during a session unless when you book you request privacy. Depending on when your appointment is, there may or may not be other people in that session.
