We loved making "me time" to enjoy Spa treatments at The Healing Salt Cave and Wellness Spa in Guilford, Connecticut, as when life becomes too busy, it is so important to make time for yourself and relax, and a visit to a Spa should be an essential part of your well-being. Owned by Theresa Cleary, The Healing Salt Cave and Wellness Spa has all the bells and whistles of excellence including an Infrared Sauna, a wide variety of facials, massages, cryotherapy, body treatments, yoga and meditation classes, and a Salt Cave

Welcome
The Healing Salt Cave and Wellness Spa

Owner Theresa Cleary opened her beautiful Wellness Spa in June 2021 and has been attracting a dedicated clientele for its very special treatments including their Salt Cave. We spent a lovely and relaxing Saturday afternoon on July 15, 2023, at The Healing Salt Cave and Wellness Spa nourishing and relaxing our bodies and our minds.

The Healing Salt Cave and Wellness Spa has a diverse treatment menu of specialized facials, dedicated massages, body treatments, Salt Cave Therapy, an Infrared Sauna, a Jacuzzi, and Wellness Pod, as well as yoga and meditation classes making it an excellent choice for health as well as taking time out to do something special just for yourself. The Healing Salt Cave and Wellness Spa is also perfect for pre-wedding parties, birthdays, and anniversaries, as a little pampering in life is always good.

If you have never experienced a facial before, your face is in for a treat as it is like a massage for your facial muscles. It provides the skin and underlying muscles with both nourishment as well as relaxation. The result is that you feel and look better after a facial as your skin glows with increased circulation and vibrant health.

We began our experience at The Healing Salt Cave and Wellness Spa with a session in their Infrared Sauna. For those unfamiliar with Infrared Saunas, the health benefits of this type of sauna include "weight loss & increased metabolism, muscle pain relief, immune system boost, detoxification, improves appearance of cellulite, ease joint pain and stiffness, stress and fatigue reduction, and improves skin." We emerged from the Infrared Sauna relaxed and ready to begin the next step in our health and relaxation journey by a session in their amazing Salt Cave.

Speaking with Theresa we learned the interesting history of salt caves and their healthful benefits that date back to the salt mines in Eastern Europe and Russia. Unlike other types of mines that had negative effects on miners' lungs, they found that those working in the salt mines were in good health from breathing the salt crystals in the mine, and also had good skin. Based on what the miners were achieving from working in the salt mines, Dr. Feliks Boczkowski opened the first health resort at the Wieliczka Salt Mine in Poland in 1839. (You can read more about this interesting discovery on The Healing Salt Cave and Wellness Spa website.) 

Halotherapy (salt therapy) is said to be beneficial for those with respiratory conditions, is good for skin conditions, and is good for relief of anxiety, stress, and fatigue. Although we have experienced many Spas and treatments around the world, the Salt Cave was nothing like we had ever experienced before and was totally sensational.

Salt Cave Relax

Wearing special booties, we entered the Salt Cave and walked over Himalayan salt crystals (like walking on a salt beach) and made ourselves comfortable in their zero-gravity chairs. The Salt Cave was lined with Himalayan Salt and the room bathed us in its soft pink glow as dry salt air was dispersed through a halo generator and soft music added to the relaxing ambience. The session was 45 minutes and was so relaxing that it was very easy to fall asleep and take a short nap.

Our next step in our Spa journey was a Rejuvenating Facial (for Debra) and a Deep Tissue Massage (for Edward). Both the facial and the massage were not only stress relieving, but they also left our skin glowing with good health. We emerged from our treatments relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle the world again. 

No matter how beautiful a Spa is, it is ultimately the Spa team who create memorable experiences, and Theresa Cleary and her dedicated team indeed created a memorable Spa experience for us. We cannot wait to return and have another session in their salt cave. As salt is a great preservative for meat, think about how great it is for people!
