The only salt cave in Kent County opened its doors today, despite the ongoing COVID19 pandemic.
Pink Lounge: Dry Salt Therapy is located in Kentwood off of Broadmoor Avenue.
The owner, Jessica Ann Tyson, says people should come by for a session especially during the pandemic to experience the benefits.
Dry salt therapy is said to have health benefits like releasing negative ions in the air which may reduce inflammation, increase lung capacity, purify the air and kill bacteria.
Tyson says while she disinfects hard surfaces like furniture, the salt does not need to be disinfected because it naturally kills bacteria.
Masks are optional, as it's more difficult to breathe in the benefits of the salt caves with a mask on.
