Welcome to the Outer Banks Salt Cave!

Halotherapy is an alternative healthcare service that utilizes salt for its health benefits! Salt is antibacterial, antimicrobial, and a natural disinfectant. Spending time in a salt cave that is saturated with tiny salt particles can improve respiratory health, boost the immune system and improve skin issues and is beneficial to your mind, body, and spirit.

Sooth away the stress and tensions of life, while relaxing in a quiet, peaceful environment. Located at 3723 N. Croatan Highway (the bypass), in Unit G. Our salt sessions in the main cave begin at the top of the hour, and last for 45 minutes – it’s a slice of serenity in our hectic world.

Our services include the Salt Cave, the Salt Booth, and our Massage and Reiki room.

Salt Cave – Step into the Salt!

Enjoy the serenity of our Salt Cave while you experience dry salt therapy. When booked, unless marked as a Community Salt Session, each session is private and accommodates 1 to 10 friends and family. Community Salt Sessions are open to all, limited to 8 adults. Relax and listen to music, enjoy the visual of the Lagoon Nebula on the ceiling, and breathe deeply to draw the pulverized salt particles into your airways. The inhaled salt clings to your soft tissues, thinning congestion in sinuses, bronchial airways and lungs. Dry salt therapy is also known as Halotherapy and is an alternative, complementary treatment to relieve symptoms of asthma, allergies, colds, flu, cystic fibrosis, COPD, and emphysema, as well as snoring and sleeping problems. Regular treatment is also beneficial in treating skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema.

Salt Booth

Salt Booth Therapy

Spend 10 minutes in the Salt Booth and receive the same salt therapy as a 45-minute session in the Salt Cave – a faster solution, still relaxing, but less time to commit. The 10-minute sessions are standard and the 20-minute detox sessions deliver double the pulverized salt, which is great for treating leftover congestion from a cold or flu or bronchitis, allergies, and skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
Parents can bring a younger child to the booth for a parent/child session – 15 minutes with fewer distractions for young children — as young as one month.
The booth has a backlit wall of Himalayan salt and the colors can cycle through the spectrum or can be set to bright white to help alleviate symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
Another feature of the Salt Booth is a vibro-acoustic sound system. The headphones create vibration that is conducted through the bones of the skull, resonating in sinus cavities which helps relieve sinus congestion that may cause headaches, earaches and facial pain.
