Wahanda content editor Judy Johnson recently made her first visit to The Salt Cave in Wandsworth, London and reported about her experience at Wahanda’s Wellness Wonders blog. She entered the Salt Cave with a blocked nose (“courtesy of the winter cold and flu season) but after only a short time felt both clear, calmer, and appears to have had a good experience.
In her article, Ms. Johnson raises some interesting facts:
- 1 in 3 Londoners have an allergy
- 1 in 13 suffer from asthma
- Salt caves are incredibly common in Eastern Europe, where people with chronic conditions often spend two to three hours a day in “salt grottos”
- In Russia, salt caves were approved for medical use almost 15 years ago.
- After around 20 sessions, the benefits last up to 6 months
- It is particularly effective for children with respiratory issues.
In her article, Ms. Johnson describes the The Salt Cave (which is located within a 100 year old converted church) as having a hygienic, clinical interior, a friendly waiting room and “a room resembling a snow covered chamber” (filled with salt!).
