Even though the hustle and bustle of the holidays is over, the stress may still linger; it’s time to start thinking of ways to kick back, relax and rejuvenate after the stressful season.


Wellness travel and experiences are always popular as travelers look for different ways to relax and escape. With spas, yoga and wellness retreats, there is always a way to escape. One trending wellness experience is visiting a salt cave.


I recently visited the Salt Cave in Newtown, Bucks County, located in Pennsylvania, and felt rejuvenated afterward. I went with my aunt and enjoyed a 45-minute Deluxe Salt Room Session. During our session, we were in our own private room, seated in full-body compression massage chairs. Water was available, along with a blanket for added comfort and warmth. I was so relaxed, I fell asleep, and after the session my sinuses and head felt clear.


Other session options available are packages of three, five or 10 45-minute sessions for an individual, a salt session with reflexology, a salt cave facial, a reiki session and more. For a full list of sessions, click here.


During your time in the Salt Cave, there will be meditative music playing and the halogenerator pumps therapeutic salt into the air. The caves hold more than 5,000 pounds of pink Himalayan sea salt — even the floors are bedded with pink salt!


Each session in the Salt Cave can help guests relax and ease eczema, asthma, psoriasis, migraine and headaches, seasonal allergies, common cold symptoms, depression and more. For a full list of benefits, click here.
