Salt Cave at Embassy Suites by Hilton San Antonio Brooks Hotel & Spa

We all could all use some relaxation in our lives and a day for self-care. A visit to the salt cave inside the quaint eforea Spa at the Embassy Suites by Hilton San Antonio Brooks Hotel & Spa is the perfect place for that. The one of a kind salt cave is esthetically a site to see and makes you feel as if you are far away in mystical world of ambiance. When the spa attendant checked us in and explained how and what the treatment was good for, we didn’t think we were going to slip away into such tranquility that we'd fall asleep. Boy, were we wrong…Salt Cave San Antonio

The huge amount of salt used in the salt cave creates a unique microclimate (the climate of a very small or restricted area) in the cave. The ion enriched climate in the cave is naturally absorbed into the body during your treatment. By inhaling the saturated air from the salt cave, it increases the important elements needed for good health for all ages. The cave itself puts you in a relaxing mood the minute you walk in.  Our session in the salt cave not only relaxed us, but it made us feel as if we had gotten hours of sleep. The spa attendant covers up your shoes for sanitation purposes and seats you in a very comfortable lounging chair. After that, they tuck you in with a thick cozy blanket and leave the cave so that you may enjoy the treatment privately. As we were reclined comfortably in our chairs nice and tucked it, with a few deep breaths and closed eyes, we escaped from reality for a few.

We were really intrigued by all the research that has proven the therapeutic values of the salt cave and their positive influence in the treatment of illnesses, diseases, and disorders. Here are a few: Respiratory illnesses, insufficient circulation of blood, asthma and bronchial tube inflammation, post heart attack conditions, ear, nose and throat, esophagus and sinus conditions, gastritis, stress reduction, general nervousness and exhaustion.
