Santa Barbara's underground Himalayan salt caves...drop in, feel good, and experience the wonder of Salt.
At Salt, our serene and beautiful salt caves are crafted from 45 tons of 250 million year old Himalayan crystal salt, the most pristine and unpolluted salt on Earth. The mineral content of the salt in our caves is identical to that of the primal ocean, which is the source of all life. Unlike regular salt, which has been processed and chemically refined, our Himalayan salt is pure and completely natural, containing 84 trace elements that are absolutely essential to our cellular health.
Salt Cave therapy, also known as Halotherapy ("halo" means salt in Greek) and Speleotherapy ("speleo" means cave in Greek), is profoundly relaxing and can even improve your mood!
Pass the Salt, Please
For centuries, Eastern Europeans have traveled to cities in Germany and Poland to visit curative underground salt mines to relieve a variety of respiratory conditions and skin ailments, such as allergies and asthma, and eczema and psoriasis. Today, Salt brings this extraordinary healing experience to Santa Barbara ... simply sit back, relax and breathe in our beautiful caves. The micro particles of salt in the air help to decongest the lungs, and reduce inflammation in the airways, while soothing the skin and relaxing the body and mind. It's revolutionary.
Inhalation of pure Himalayan salt clears much more than the sinuses ... it also clears the mind. Drop into Salt to find a deeper sense of peace and quiet, and emerge feeling refreshed and ready for action.
Whether you just want to have some fun with your kids, or you need to combat their sneezes and sniffles, plan your next play date at Salt. The pure Himalayan salt in our caves is not only a special treat to sink your toes into, it is also anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory.

Every Breath You Take
The secret of healing in the caves at Salt is simple...the air is intensely saturated with micro particles of salt that are easily absorbed through the skin and deep into the lungs. Breathe it in and feel yourself come alive.
Negative is the New Positive
At Salt, there's something in the air in our caves ... it's not just salt, it's negative ions. By regulating serotonin levels in the brain, negative ions create a very relaxed state of mind. Warning: Negative ions may cause happy mood swings!
