“Love this place for meditating, and the healing effects!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

My husband and I loooove this place! We always feel so rejuvenated after a session in the salt cave. I can feel the therapeutic benefits with each breath, and am breathing more deeply and efficiently by the end of a session. The cave is a relaxing environment, perfect for meditation, yoga, and just taking a time-out from everyday life. I was thrilled to take my newborn son in recently, knowing the numerous health benefits of the negative ions produced by the salt crystals.
My husband and I had purchased a salt lamp from Asheville's salt cave especially for taking to the hospital for the birth of our son. It's glow emitted such a calming presence in the room, and I felt reassured by the knowledge of it's purifying effects. This reassurance was increased when my son had to spend a week in the hospital NICU fighting a respiratory infection. We kept our salt lamp glowing 24/7 near his crib, and now that we are home, it glows constantly in our family bedroom. I am grateful for Asheville Therapeutic Salt Cave, as I feel that our salt lamp was one of the best preparations for our birth experience. And I look forward to many relaxing, rejuvenating, and disease presenting sessions in the cave with my family! Thank you Jodie, for bringing such a great service to Asheville!

“Healing Environment”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

I had been sick for a little over a week with upper respiratory issues before going into my salt cave session. I feel my session in the salt cave helped push me over into a place of whole health again. Thank goodness for this healing atmosphere!

“My Healing Place”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Not only is SolA in the heart of downtown Asheville, it is one of the most amazing relaxation and healing spots in the area. The solitude of soft music, trickling water, and tons and tons of living salt brings peace to body, mind and soul. The peace and healing is instant and it lasts....

“Soothing and Therapeutic”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We were visiting Asheville for a few days and I saw the brochure at our B&B for the salt cave and its therapeutic features. Since I was coming down with a cold we decided to give it a try. Well....the 45 minutes spent in the cave was very relaxing, my husband even fell asleep in his lounge chair. The flowing water, calming music and dim lights is a perfect atmosphere for reflection in this busy world. I was also breathing easier after the session.
I'm sorry that we are three hours away. I would make this a weekly routine.
We also bought a salt board. Cold it's wonderful for cheeses and if you cook on it it adds a salt flavor to your meat or vegetables. A not to be missed adventure if you are in Asheville.
