A session in the salt cave is relaxing and healing. It's one of the few things that can erase my stubborn headaches. Also, great massages by Jen - in particular - the cupping massage. Soothing and detoxifying. A+!

This is a Himalayan Therapeutic Wellness Center. The “salt” cave with nice relaxing “zero gravity” chairs is a terrific experience. Others I met go often for breathing disorders or just to relax. Here they also do other types of therapy, including massage.

Prices are currently $40 for a relaxing hour - a bargain. I've been 4 times so far! Breathing easier. I don't know of any senior rates, but you might call and ask.
