New to Indianapolis, a Polish salt cave has been freshly formed in Benjamin Harrison State Park. The Indianapolis Salt Cave and Halotherapy Center has created a microclimate of a Polish salt mine. In this cave you can find asthma relief, decrease in sinus infection, cold and influenza prevention, and best of all peace.
The Indianapolis Salt Cave and Halotherapy Center is not an ordinary cave. Here you will find 9 tons of Pink Polish Salt. Traditionally you may have heard of Himalayan salt is the most popular salt, but the Polish were the ones to first practice Halotherapy. Halotherapy is another name for when salt is being dispersed in the air and inhaled. This salt cave follows the strict guidelines in creating a micro environment of a salt mine. There are specific levels of salt saturation in the air, ph levels, humidity, etc that must be met to be considered a true salt cave. Therefore, this is the only salt cave in Indiana. (The other salt therapy facilities in Indiana do not meet the salt cave guidelines so they are considered salt rooms.)
Salt caves offer a wide range of healing benefits and the Indianapolis Salt Cave is no exception. Salt is a antibacterial and antimicrobial compound. Inhalation of salt works to cleanse the body of any respiratory infections or diseases. People who deal with issues of thyroid problems, cough, asthma, allergies, etc can benefit from a healing session in the cave.
In addition to the physical healing properties. The salt creates mental healing at a physiologically level. This pink polish salt works to create a calming, mood boosting environment due to the negative ions given off from the salt. Negative ions counteract the positive ions. Positive ions are present due to pollution, toxins, electronic devices and many everyday sources.. Positive ions induce feelings of anxiety, tension, and irritation. Think of how you feel at the beach. The feelings of ease and relaxation felt at a beach are partially due to the large amount of negative ions in the salty ocean air. Therefore, that same peaceful feeling can be experienced in a salt cave without a trip to the ocean or risk of a sunburn.
My session at the Indianapolis Salt Cave was fabulous. I spent a 45 minute session snuggling with a cozy blanket in one of the many chairs in the salt cave. I really enjoyed listening to the peaceful music and sounds of water trickling. My favorite part of being in the salt cave was the glow from all of the salt rocks. The color the rocks create have such a unique essence and vibe. During my session I practiced different deep breathing exercises and then gave myself time to be still. It was really refreshing to unplug for 45 minutes out of day. After the session I felt a huge sense of ease and cleansing. My body felt lighter and I was ready to take on the rest of my day with a more grounded mindset.
