The VITAL SALT ROOM
At SALTWONDER, in our North Shore neighborhood, we brought you the Himalayan Salt Cave experience. We created a beautiful and functional space where you can practice breath work, yoga, meditation, or just relax, disconnect and recharge while you benefit from the respiratory support offered by salt therapy.
Contributing to this campaign you are helping us to further our mission, expand our services and create the very unique VITAL SALT ROOM.
I’m Nuca the owner of SALTWONDER-Himalayan Salt Cave in North Vancouver.
8 years ago I decided to create the first man made salt cave therapy facility on the west coast of Canada. The idea came to me during a visit to my native country Romania. On this occasion I revisited the Prahova Salt Mine, my childhood “sweet salt mine” as I like to call it. This is the place that I regularly visited with my parents during my childhood. My breathing was restored here and I was renewed with the joy of running, playing sports, dancing, and later relaxing, meditating and just disconnecting myself from daily stress.
In the spring of 2012, after 6 months of intense creative work using over 20 tons of Himalayan Crystal salt rocks, with much love and passion, three salt chambers were created: the Himalayan Salt Cave, the heated Himalayan Crystal Salt Bed and The Salt Nebulizer Room.
Since then, over 20000 people have visited Saltwonder. Some of them came to benefit from a natural detoxification process, some to meditate or to attend Sound and Healing events, others to do yoga, stress management or just to relax, disconnect and recharge. Everyone has benefited from the respiratory support offered by the Salt Therapy or Halotherapy.
Now, 8 years later, we decided to reinforce our successful presence in the Lower Mainland by adding a new Vital Salt Area. This is a new holistic salt therapy experience, in a private setting, meant for an individual or a couple.
Our Project – The Vital Salt Room
In addition to approximately 7 tons of natural Himalayan Salt Rocks covering the walls and floor, the Vital Salt Room will be equipped with a Salt Infrared Sauna, the first Warm Dry Salt Bath Box, a Detox Herbal Salt Foot Bath, a Halogenerator and an Ultrasonic Salt Nebulizer device and a shower facility.
The Salt Infrared Sauna
The benefits of the infrared sauna are well known. Bathing the skin in dry but relaxing infrared heat increases circulation, lymphatic flow, eases pain and stiffness, soothes the aches of arthritis and burns calories while you relax. To all these benefits the Salt Infrared Sauna adds the respiratory support benefits offered by the strong presence of negative salt ions in the breathable air which has immediate effects and induces an intense state of relaxation.
The Warm Dry Salt Bath Box
Wrapped in a thin sheet of cotton that allows the microscopic salt particles to pass through, immerse your entire body into the Warm Dry Salt Bath Box. Through your open pores the salt penetrates into the subcutaneous tissue and osmotic-ally attracts the pure biological water produced in the body, leaving you with profound hydration and increased collagen quality.
The weight of the warm salt creates an effective calm-inducing amount of pressure on the entire body known as “pressure therapy.” This has been defined as the sensation produced when an individual is hugged, squeezed, touched or held. When such a pressure is applied to the body, the parasympathetic nervous system takes over and releases dopamine and serotonin, the “feel-good” neurotransmitters of the brain. These hormones help with motivation, impulse control, attention, memory, social behavior, sleep and digestion. It is also known to stimulate parts of the brain that are responsible for sleep and production of melatonin. Many people equate it to how they feel when they lay on a beach with their body buried in the sand!!!
