My visit to the salt cave was pleasant. The attendant was professional and polite. She thoroughly explained everything to my friends and I. The adjustable recliner chairs were comfortable. We we also offered a blanket each, which made the experience cozier. It was a relaxing experience!

Best nap I've had in a loooong time. Very friendly and informative staff with some really great tools to access my rest needs. They even let me hang out after my session with some chammomile tea to ensure a smooth transition back into....the WORLD (dun dun DUN) 👀. I recommend this place for folks needing to reestablish their rest practice in a meaningful and restorative way. 💜

This place is amazing! The staff is so friendly and we had such a relaxing experience. We are going to make this a regular appointment for self care. I have terrible allergies and just 15 minutes into the session I was breathing more clearly than I have in a really long time! Love it here.

We didn't expect binaural beats and sound healing therapy to be part of the experience, what a pleasant surprise! Simple and easy to enjoy, left us feeling grounded and sweet.. improved awareness with multiple sessions

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Durham's Salt Cave and sound bath for an experience that I can only describe as truly relaxing and rejuvenating. From the moment you step into the cave, the atmosphere is peaceful, calming, and inviting. The combination of soothing music, warm lighting, and comforting temperature creates a space that is conducive to deep relaxation.The sound bath portion of the experience was particularly wonderful. The combination of gentle sounds and vibrations creates a feeling of complete tranquility. I felt so relaxed after the session that it was hard to believe how quickly time had passed!I can highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a way to release stress, relax the mind and body, or simply enjoy some quiet time. It was truly magical!

After having a hard time getting some scheduling information trying to combine services, we got everything squared away. Hubby and I scheduled the salt cave and LOVED it. Now want to plan a girl’s event for the adult girls in the family!

I visited the Salt room about a week and a half post abdominal surgery. The experience was super relaxing and healing, and my surgical site appears to be healing well ahead of schedule. Highly recommend for both general relaxation and also healing from surgery etc.

This was a nice experience, the hot stones were my favorite part. I did expect the room to have more, I felt like something was missing.

An exceptional and restorative experience! Owners are incredibly friendly and warm. The halo therapy and sound therapy, the beauty of the space all work together to provide deep rest and restorative peace. A great reset. We will be back...with friends!

I gifted my mother and grandmother time at the Durham Salt Cave for Mother's Day and we truly enjoyed ourselves. Bruce was very helpful and I definitely received the rejuvenation needed to start a new week!

This place is a wonderful escape from day to day grind in “the real world” Bruce and Aubrey made me feel very safe and at home. The salt cave is the best salt room I have ever experienced, the lights, the music, the chairs, weighted blankets were all such a treat. With this level of relaxation I almost fell asleep several times. 10/10 would recommend and visit again. Thank you 🙏😊

Wonderful space to de-stress and breathe easy. We had a great time there. Truly a refuge to take a 45 minute reset on the edge of Durham. Wonderful, inspired owners too.

I wasn't sure I'd enjoy myself. I'm not one for sort of new age experiences. But I genuinely enjoyed the entire vibe. Restful, soothing. The loungers are next level, the host was a delight, the sound bath was incredible. I've already made plans to return. So worth it.

A truly unique experience to rejuvenate your whole being. The atmosphere was cultivated to create an oasis in the middle of the city to allow you to be a state to be receptive of all of the benefits available to you.We did the Salt Suite. From the warm welcome, the easy flow and peaceful guided intention, to the immersive experience that took us on a restorative journey back to ourselves after the stress of the holidays.Highly recommend!!

This was such a lovely and relaxing experience! My husband and I enjoyed the 2 person salt and sound. We were given blankets and warm salt stones, then we placed on headphones and were able to also feel the vibrations in the chairs. The entire experience left us feeling so rejuvenated! The only complaint I have is how fast 45 minutes passed!

So very glad this place exists. My first visit provided me the space to learn how to meditate, and in so doing proved to be the spark that set off a virtuous cycle of rejuvenation in my life. I highly recommend for anyone who has tried meditation before but felt like they never really "got it." Durham Salt Cave has cultivated a space that allows you to explore stillness. It's become a go-to for when friends and family visit. Perfect for a group of 3-6 people.

Thank you for the incredible experience. Recently my spouse and I shared a mutual first dip into the Salt Cave. The generous and gracious hosts Bruce and Aubrey made us feel cherished. Their cave setting included a salt floor, an accompanying soundscape and adjustable chairs. From beginning to its close we felt bathed in peace, and the rhythm of our lives was calmed and rejuvenated. Deep bow to these wonderful people. Grateful you are in Durham.

My mom and I gifted each other a visit for our birthdays and we had a great time! The zero gravity seating was so comfortable. The atmosphere was perfect! The staff was so pleasant and friendly! Cute and quaint entrance and so tranquil! Loved my time here today and plan to go back again soon and share with my friends to go as well!!

My husband got me a gift certificate for my birthday and we went together. It was a relaxing and rejuvenating experience! I loved it and the woman who guided us through was very kind!

It was such a relaxing and amazing experience. Alesia and Bruce were so understanding and provided a refund when two of our friends couldn't attend due to being sick. Bruce did an amazing job of walking us through the process and making sure we were comfortable. The chairs were amazing and unique and allowed for total relaxation. The hot stones we were given was my favorite part and the warm tea at the end was the cherry on top. I would absolutely go again!

Visiting Cave & Spa was a deliciously novel experience; it felt like a healing temple. The translucent salt walls provided a warm glow and the bed of pink salt underfoot was both grounding and exotic. I was immediately comfortable in the soft leather, adjustable recliner and chose to listen to the soothing, trance-like music using headphones while my wife relaxed in silence. We felt surprisingly refreshed and enlivened by the experience and will definitely do it again when we visit Durham in the fall. Portsmouth, NH

It was a very relaxing and mind altering experience. They have created a really peaceful space. I don't know if it was the salt, the sound of the music, or something else, but I had a wonderful feeling from the experience. It took me on a fascinating internal journey. Thank you Durham Salt Cave.

What a fabulous and restorative experience! Lovely staff led me to this cozy cave with salt on the floor. I settled in to the most comfortable zero gravity chair with hot stones in my hands and spent a heavenly 45 minutes. I’ll definitely be back.

The salt cave was a fantastic and grounding experience that left me feeling energized yet relaxed. Aubrey was so warm and welcoming while getting us situated for our experience. The facility and cave were clean and comfortable. The loungers and music augmented the meditative experience! And a delightful cup of hot tea was ready for us as we emerged from the salt cave! Highly recommend! A beautiful and grounding escape from the day to day shuffle! Such a treat!

Replenishing! In a busy world, THIS is the place I wanted to be. The salt cave is very comfortable and felt cared for as soon as I stepped foot in the door! They had hot tea ready for me at the end! Will definitely do again. Highly recommend!

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the salt cave and will be back. I attended for my birthday with my sisters. The staff were very welcoming and made us feel at home. We left feeling refreshed and relaxed fro our experience. We didn't know what to expect going into it but we were not disappointed.

The Salt Cave is a beautiful addition to the neighborhood! You feel deeply cared for, from the second you enter. Aubrey is incredibly welcoming and thoughtful. And the attention to detail is truly exceptional. Being in the cave is peaceful and deeply restoring. And it is most reassuring to see how much focus has been placed on ensuring that this experience is safe and accessible. I'm honored to spread the word and eager to return! Much gratitude 🙏🏽✨

How truly incredible that a place like this exists! From the moment you walk in it feels like a deeply relaxing exhale. The hosts are so welcoming, thoughtful and clear and the whole space is peaceful and uplifting. The session itself is pure magic! 45 minutes of extreme comfort in the most amazing chairs, healing sound wave therapy with headphones and chairs that vibrate with the sounds so nicely (my favorite part!), holding warm salt stones that feel so lovely, while in a beautifully made salt cave and taking deep salty breaths...love it! Will definitely be back. Highly recommend for anyone in need of some space to really relax and reconnect 💜

My daughter and I loved this experience and now i want to go back several times in a row! I really felt the detox effect but in such a calm, not difficult way but my system was definitely re-set through this experience! Just the asthetic alone is healing! I love the Durham Salt Cave! This would be a wonderful Holiday gift!

My husband and I visited Salt Cave on a date or relaxation, and I immediately felt energy from all the plants in the entry way. Since all the sessions are private due to covid-19, we were able to start right away upon arrival. The warm and inviting atmosphere really encouraged me to ground myself for my meditation. The cave was light and airy and the chairs are amazing! I enjoyed wearing the headphones for part of the session, and off for part. I really felt light, calm, and energized from the time in the cave. I am really interested in going back, even with the 40 minute drive from Wake Forest!

My husband and I visited the Durham Salt Cave and it was wonderful! The owners were so welcoming and attentive. They thanked us numerous times for being there which was so sweet. The session was relaxing and tranquil. We especially liked the comfortable chairs they had. The spa was beautifully decorated with bamboo and other natural elements. This is a must, book your appointment now. You won’t be disappointed!
