If you are on a low sodium diet, this may not be for you, but salt therapy is the newest thing and people are flocking towards salt caves to relieve stress..

Who comes up with this stuff? I wish I did as people are paying big bucks for what is referred to as 'halo therapy' or 'salt therapy.' So, what exactly does salt therapy supposedly do?

Primal Ocean Salt Cave in La Grange says that visitors can sit in their man made salt cave made of pink Himalayan salt. By doing so, you can feel very relaxed. In addition, you will:

  • Reduce stress
  • Improve your breathing
  • Your skin condition will improve
  • Reduce any muscle aches you have

It's the hottest new thing in tranquil relaxation. Primal Oceans Salt describes your experience:

As you walk to your reclining chair feel the thick beach of crushed salt that lies beneath your feet as you walk. Breathing in the salt particles that are concentrated in the salt cave has been known to be a natural benefit to the upper respiratory system.



It looks kinda spooky, and there is no scientific proof that you will experience any physical or psychological benefits, but it sure looks like neat place to visit.

TIP: Leave your cell phone in your car. How much will it cost? ,Therapy sessions go for about $35.00 an hour / per person.

In addition to the salt cave in LaGrange, There are also salt caves in Worth, IL, and Naperville.
