So recently I got the opportunity to discover a hidden gem right here in our own backyard called Salt Miami Wellness. Personally I’ve ventured into the usual dark caves here and there, but never had the chance to experience a salt cave before. After I did, I can wholeheartedly say that I might’ve found my new favorite place to just hang out, all the while sipping on some warm tea & improving my breathing.
With a mission to provide a healthy (drug free) and relaxing way to improve your breathing, this place is ideal for those who suffer from asthma, allergies, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, stress….you name it. Their Salt Caves are equipped with Himalayan salt that can be reserved for a private session as well as a group session with others who are seeking the same relaxing experience. This holistic therapy using the micro particles of salt promotes better breathing, healthier skin, improved fitness and overall wellness. It’s proven that salt therapy can significantly help to increase the resistance to respiratory tract diseases, strengthen your immune system, among many other benefits + it’s completely safe for your entire family! Speaking of, if you’ve got kids, there’s a playground where they can have fun and also improve their breathing, because it’s never too early to get a start on being healthy.
Alex and I came here 2 weeks after our wedding, which was a perfect occasion to spend some time for ourselves to relax and unwind for a little. Once there we got to try out their private Himalayan Salt Cave for a 1 hour session. The ambiance was absolutely relaxing, they’ve got these love chairs that open up for the perfect position to take a nap in + they give you these cozy blankets with fluffy pillows, with all that it’s impossible not to want to doze off. When I tell you that their Salt Caves are fully equipped with Himalayan salt, I mean that their walls & floors are literally all made out of salt. YES EVEN THE WALLS ARE MADE OUT OF SALT! It’s like a salty version of Elsa (not her mood, even though she was a little salty at first) without the possibility of hyperthermia.
Finally, after our 1 hour session in the Salt Cave we stepped into their infrared sauna room for a 45 minute session. The infrared heat allows the skin to breathe, penetrates deeper to detoxify the body + you can burn up to 600 calories! It was pretty hot in that sauna, but what’s a little sweat compared to burning that fat away. Plus unlike most saunas out there, they have a mini TV inside, in which you could catch up on your show while you relax (talk about some Netflix & Chill). You didn’t need to tell us twice though; we immediately decided to catch up on the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina while we sipped on some icy cold lemonade water to forget about the fact that we were literally sweating our whole life within those 45 minutes. (Although the scenes of fire and brimstone didn’t help too much)
Needless to say, we enjoyed this one of a kind experience and I’m 100000% sure that we will definitely be back for a few more sessions because we totally felt the difference after we left. I’m the type of person that when I feel a tad bit stressed out my shoulders start to hurt and it’s mainly because my muscles tend to get all sore & tense up. This whole experience made me feel more relaxed and I noticed muscle relief pretty quickly + I felt like I was able to breathe with more ease, something that I probably wouldn’t have noticed unless I came here. If you’re looking for a natural way of relieving some stress and helping yourself breathe better, I would definitely recommend for you to check out Salt Miami Wellness. Even if you’re not from Miami you could try checking Google for any local salt wellness locations around your area. It never hurts to try out something new, especially if it’s good for you!
