About Salt Therapy
The process of using salt as a healing agent has been around for thousands of years, often associated with the ancient Greeks. Today we can still reap the benefits from sodium chloride, the two atoms that make up the salt molecule. Salt is an integral part of our life, regulating water intake, circulation, nervous and respiratory system, muscle contractions, and more within the body. In addition, salt also has external healing benefits, offering a noticeable improvement to skin afflictions such as eczema, rashes, psoriasis, dry skin due to its ability to replenish and trap moisture in the skin. It is also thought to be a great stress reliever and mood booster. Because of all of these wonderful benefits, we offer salt therapy sessions at Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa in our Salt Cave, designed specifically for healing and relaxation. If you would like to learn more about these treatments or schedule an appointment, you can call our Fleming Island, FL medical spa today.Book Now

"Today was my first visit to Pura Vida and definitely will not be my last. They have a wonderful room where you can sit and relax while your wait for your appointment, that even has a little bar area. There is a sauna and salt cave near the waiting area that I would love to check out, as they both looked awesome. Jessie performed my facial and she was excellent! The facial was very relaxing and refreshing. Would love to plan a girl's spa day here. Would definitely recommend checking it out if you haven't."- J.V. / Google / Nov 04, 2022

What to Expect
During a salt therapy session, you will be taken to our Salt Cave, which is a place designed for you to relax in a temperature-controlled environment and inhale the natural salt-filled air. You will be surrounded by salt on the walls and floor, which will be diffused into the air so you can breathe it in easily. These sessions typically last around 40 minutes at a time. This is created to be a comfortable, stress-free treatment that brings healing to your mind and body.
Studies show that regular salt therapy sessions can yield results in about two weeks if you are receiving these treatments every day. It may take longer to see the benefits if your sessions are less frequent. Over time, respiratory issues should begin to improve and skin should feel more moisturized and have fewer visible blemishes. You should also feel less stressed and more relaxed. You must continue to attend the sessions in order to maintain the benefits.
