Salt is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory and studies show that salt therapy can bring about significant improvement in conditions such as chronic bronchitis, asthma, sinus congestion, COPD, allergies, lung diseases and skin ailments. There can also be an uplift in mood, since the cave is saturated with minute salt particles, which give out negative ions, known to help with depression. So a visit to the Santa Fe Salt Cave can have positive benefits from the inside out, body, mind and spirit. Say you saw it on the Cool List! 10% discount offered to seniors, students & veterans and $10 off a single session all day every Thursdays (with a NM state issued ID). Sessions start on the hour.  Reservations recommended: 505-365-2875 or ​santafesaltcave@gmail.com. Located at 1424 Second St.
