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.
The Healing Salt Cave and Wellness Spa
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.
Facials include an Acne Facial (60 minutes), Back Facial (60 minutes),
Classic Facial (60 minutes), Microdermabrasion (60 minutes), Peels (60
minutes), a Rejuvenating Facial (60 minutes), a Signature Facial (75 minutes),
and a Teen Facial (45 minutes). 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.
The Healing Salt Cave and Wellness Spa also offers a wide variety of
massages for 60 minutes or for 90 minutes including a Reflexology Massage,
Aromatherapy Massage, Swedish Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Prenatal Massage (60
minutes only), HSC Signature Massage with CBD Warm Wax (60 minutes only),
Sports Massage, and a Deep Tissue Massage.
They also have a variety of Body Treatments including a Hydrating Body
Wrap (90 minutes), Pink Salt Scrub (60 minutes), and a Seaweed Mud Wrap (60
minutes), and offer Cryotherapy that includes their CoolRestore CRYO Body
slimming and Holistic CoolRestore CRYP facials.
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.
Salt Cave Massage
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!
