What is Salt Therapy?

Salt therapy (Halotherapy) has been proved to be an alternative and natural treatment method for a large number of ailments in the recent past and is an ancient technique of treatment. The usage of salt cave alternative/natural therapy has been growing steadily. As every individual cannot afford to go to the natural salt caves and treat themselves, we have brought the Salt Caves to North Vancouver BC. Innovations and recent techniques in reproducing the natural environment of salt caves have made this possible. We have imported tones of Himalayan salt and built this unique and relaxing environment for you.

Salt Therapy is a natural therapeutic method based on speleotherapy, which is prolonged exposure to the specific microclimate of salt caves and salt mines. Salt aerosol plays an important role in the relief of health problems and is used for patients with respiratory disease. Salt therapy is 100% natural, safe and drug-free, providing effective long-term relief. It can be used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications or a sole natural treatment.

Salt Therapy (Halotherapy) – Alternative Natural Therapy For Allergies, Skin And Respiratory Illnesses

Salt Therapy / Halotherapy involves a series of sessions in a man-made salt cave / room which reproduces the unique microclimate found in a natural salt cave and salt mine. Studies done in East Europe, where this therapy has its roots, show a 90% success rate with children under the age of 7 in reducing dependence on medication and relieving symptoms and 70% success rate for adults.

Salt Therapy / Halotherapy is a 100% safe, drug-free, non-invasive and can be used as a complementary treatment or as a sole treatment. Consult your doctor and ask if it can complement the treatment of your respiratory condition.

What do customers say about Salt Wonder

Wow – it was an unbelievable experience. I never felt into such a deeper meditative state.It was a gift from my boyfriend for a private salt therapy session. He meant that could help me with my breathing issue. I did not know what to expect. Salt therapy is something new for me, never heard about, much less about healing salt crystal bed. The room is small and very private. Rocks of salt are all over around the walls and the salt below you is nicely warm. The soft nice music and the dimmed light that comes from the skyline and walls make me feel very very comfortable. Usual I am a little claustrophobic but not now. Everything is very clean and I got a brand-new sheet. I felt like I was lying on my own private beach ;). I felt relaxed and peaceful. My breath was smoothly, deep, very deep and rare and I had a very pleasant feeling all over my skin. I had a short nap as well-lol. OMG – way more than I have ever been expected. Love you George. Thanks Saltwonder. P.S. 3 days later I can still feel that my breathing is smoother, and no shortness in breath for the moment. I will be back.

Each time I visit Saltwonder, I love the experience more and more.
Had a wonderful session on the weekend, and wouldn’t leave without booking again.

Krista, February 2020.

A very clean facility, welcoming and quiet, “a little bit of history” from the proprietor, then shoes off, extraneous items tucked away safely, and *voila*…
a lovely PINK Himalayan ROCK salt lined room, and with toes scrunching through the rock salt, to my ‘lounge recliner’, got comfy, and what seemed like ten minutes later(it was 45) I sensed, then heard “good morning”…I had fallen deliciously asleep. refreshingly quieter breathing(a bonus). I will definitely return.

The North Vancouver Salt Cave is really hidden in the corner of a very tiny mall. Their signage is very small and difficult to see from the road. However, once you find it, the experience is worth searching for. The owner is very friendly and willing to chat with you about the healing effects of the salt because he is very passionate about that.

A very engaging experience. Cleared my sinuses and I slept like a baby afterward. The host was very informative and helpful. I would go again!

It’s an amazing place. I had been troubled with breathing problems lately. Went in there and sang (without coughing) all the way home. I will definitely (and have already begun) recommend to co-workers, friends, family with breathing & skin problems and stress. N.N It’s very relaxing.

I took my mother there because she has COPD and we had heard the salt caves are good for lung health. After one visit, she said the tightness in her chest that she has had for months has been greatly reduced. She has gone back 4 times now. She also said that she has had a toenail fungus since 1997. She has put tons of creams and medications on it, and nothing worked. After 4 treatments at the salt cave, her toe nail is almost completely normal. What a great surprise!

Wonderful experience and the best is going to help my sinus problem. I highly recommend it.

Great place to RELAX and MEDITATE. Takes a bit to get used to but breathing improves

I adore this place. I just can’t get enough! You sit in a room (cave) that is completely built out of Himalayan salt blocks, even the floor is salt. There are lounge chairs in the cave, blankets, and you just relax for 45 minutes while they pipe in salt infused air. If you like to meditate and pray this is a great time to do it. I find it very relaxing. The staff is very knowledgeable and they can answer your questions. I highly recommend this wonderful place. God bless!
