Great experience. Upon entering salt cave there is crushed salt on ground, large salt chunks on wall and reclining chairs and blankets and big pillows if you want to lay down. We were told of the history of the salt cave and where the salt came from and then relaxed and meditated. The lights were dimmed and music played and... More

We were looking for something different to do before meeting up friends on a Friday. Wanting some relaxation but not wanting to have to shower and get ready again, my husband found the salt cave. I was skeptical, especially when I learned it wasn't a real cave, and we both giggled at the location (below a parking garage in the... More

This was a fun experience and I would do it again. I'm not sure that my husband would but this really is not his type of thing. I truly felt better after the 45 minute visit to the cave. It is a good relaxing experience.

Just finished a 45 minute session in the Salt Cave. My sister and nephew had recommended it as extremely relaxing. I have two salt lamps in my home so thought i would tryvit out. It was so relaxing, I nodded off for part of it. I would recommend it as a break from a busy sight seeing day in Asheville.

My husband and I got a "heal thy sole" reflexology massage that was truly wonderful! I have gotten foot massages before but none as good as this! We also enjoyed breathing in the rock salt for 45 min. The zero gravity chairs and blankets were so so comfy we fought to stay awake but a nap is not uncommon here,... More

I went for the salt cave experience with my adult daughter and 12 year old son. We all LOVED it! I have had dry eyes for over 10 years, and actually had tears flowing and my eyes did not feel dry! Even a day later, they still feel better! My daughter feels her sinuses open and relaxed. Even my son... More

I didn't exactly know what to expect when I made the appointment for the Salt Cave. It is not at all what I thought but it was a very enjoyable experience. The room was a little bit small but that made it quite cozy. They had pillows and blankets as well as Lounge chairs. There were toys and books for... More

Did the basic 45 minute salt cave session. Nice atmosphere but they forgot to dim the spotlights on the ceiling. Some noise from the above traffic as others have stated, but not really enough to ruin the experience. it was worth $25 but I did not leave a tip as I felt that price was plenty for what we received....

Took my Mom for her birthday and she loved it! It is an incredible experience for a man made salt cave that is alive! The cave is actually growing salt. You can recline in a zero gravity lounge chair or relax on the ground which is tiny salt pellets with tons of pillows and blankets and cushions for under the... More
