La Grange, IL, May 08, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Dr. Margaret Smiechowski, North America's foremost expert
on Himalayan salt, is pleased to announce the opening of a new salt cave creation in La Grange, IL.
Primal Oceans Salt Cave at 8 S. La Grange Road opened on April 1, 2013 by co-owners Karen Stoelinga
and Peggy McDonald after a visit to Sedona, AZ sparked an interest in salt rooms and spas. Primal
Oceans features several types of spa treatments, including ionic foot baths and aquamassage, but will
highlight the creation of Dr. Smiechowski.
"The La Grange cave has many things in common with other caves I have designed," says Smiechowski,
"but it has some brand new elements that make it a one-of-a-kind.
"This cave took about 900 man hours to complete as each component was hand-formed. It is made up of
about seven tons of Himalayan salt. It also features a commissioned soundtrack with deep healing sound
frequencies especially for this cave. And the lighting effects are incredible."
Visitors to the La Grange facility can sit "under the stars" with a custom fiber optic light system creating
simulated stars against a black background in the climate-controlled comfort of zero-gravity chairs. A
45-minute session in the 487-square-foot cave costs just $35, and up to 12 people can experience the cave
at once. The facility is open Monday through Saturday.
Research on the benefits of Himalayan salt is conducted regularly in Russia, China, and Poland, and has
supported the belief that speleotherapy, the clinical use of salt, is highly beneficial for the respiratory
system. In other parts of the world, Himalayan salt therapy is used for a wide variety of medical purposes,
but salt caves like these in the United States are hailed for their relaxation benefits.
"It's the high mineral content that makes the caves so beneficial," says Smiechowski. "The Himalayan salt
contains every mineral that the human body needs. Visitors breathe in the minerals and feel the benefits
after just a few minutes."
Smiechowski built her first salt cave in 2007 at the Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center in Rutland,
Vermont, and has built many additional caves around the country. She is known for innovative designs
that combine the most recent technology with the healing benefits and beauty of the pink salt.
"Every cave that Dr. Margaret designs is a work of art on its own, in addition to the amazing wellness
benefits it provides," says Dr. William Kelley, owner of the Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center that houses
Smiechowski's original creation.
