The South Shore Chamber of Commerce and the Scituate Chamber, recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Scituate Salt Cave, a unique new wellness facility featuring handcrafted salt caves using 30,000 pounds of glowing pink salt sourced directly from the Himalayas.
Scituate residents Cristina Curreri and Paul Dardinski are the co-owners of the Scituate Salt Cave, the first restorative salt cave in the greater Boston area, located in the heart of Scituate Harbor at 164 Front St. The renovated building also includes retail space for salt and spa products and items from local artisans.
State Sen. Patrick O’Connor and state Rep. Patrick Kearney presented the new business owners with a commendation from the Massachusetts Senate and House of Representatives.
The Scituate Salt Cave will offer deep, detoxifying relaxation sessions to restore the mind while balancing the body. They offer two indoor salt caves, ranging in size to accommodate from two to 12 guests. While in the cave, guests can recline on zero gravity chairs or lay directly on the warmed salted floor while listening to peaceful ocean sounds and music and inhaling air infused with pharmaceutical grade therapeutic salt.
“It feels like a week’s vacation at the beach, in just 45 minutes,” said Curreri of the experience. “Guests leave the cave relaxed and glowing.”
The benefits of salt therapy have been enjoyed for centuries. Discovered in the European salt mines centuries ago, salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy, is a natural way of treating many health issues, such as: asthma and seasonal allergies; arthritis and inflammation; eczema, acne and psoriasis; migraines and headaches; COPD and emphysema; cystic fibrosis; stress relief; seasonal affective disorder; anxiety and depression; snoring and sleep apnea; sinusitis; muscle tension and it’s anti-aging, Curreri said.
