Did you know there was a salt cave in Chesterton?
Salt therapy has its origins from hundreds of years ago in the salt mines and caves of Eastern Europe. Salt miners in the caves found that they had very little health issues and appeared to look younger. Soon, salt caves and spas popped up all over Europe providing halotherapy (salt therapy), which allows you to breathe in tiny salt particles for numerous health benefits.
Evexia Salt Cave is a 440 square foot man-made cave, right in Chesterton. It consists of 20,000 pounds of pink Himalayan salt. The customer lays in a zero-gravity chair while a pharmaceutical salt is secreted into the cave and meditation music is played in the background. Benefits are received through the pharmaceutical salt and the negative enzymes emitting from the Himalayan salt.
