Revitalize in Asheville’s Salt Cave


Asheville has become known for its trendy, holistic, artistic vibe and the Salt Cave fits right in. For a modest $25 an hour, you can take advantage of the therapeutic benefits of an all-natural microclimate, created with 20 tons of salt rock imported from several eastern European locations.

Several inches of sea salt cover the floor and the semi-dark, dry environment is bathed in a warm glow from the salt rock lighting and a nice ambient sound from the two water features. Guests have the option of listening to tranquil music, resting in comfortable lounge chairs and using cozy blankets, if needed. And, in case you are wondering, participants are fully clothed.

Salt Cave environments have been reported to help with a variety of ailments including allergies, arthritis and skin problems. But just to take a break and really relax in this unique environment is worthwhile. The Appel family, who own and run the Salt Cave, have studiously researched Salt Caves around the world and carefully planned every detail, even bringing in experts to build the Cave.

Located on Eagle Street in downtown Asheville, the Cave can accommodate up to 10; the entire Salt Cave can be reserved by the hour for groups or private events.
Facilities also include a gift shop with some unique items, as well as services such as a variety of massages, Reiki, reflexology, aromatherapy and facials.
Check them out at 828-236-59
