Due to the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak and the absolute need to take appropriate measures to protect ourselves, our loved ones, our neighbors, and strangers, Austin Salt Cave will be closed until further notice.
EDUCATION, INFORMATION, AND AWARENESS ARE CRITICAL
For the past few weeks, the Austin Salt Cave has been closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 throughout the United States, and the world, following guidance from the CDC, local health authorities, world health agencies, consulting with halotherapy industry professionals, and medical professionals to ensure we have the right information and resources in place to safeguard the health and well-being of our staff, customers, and community.
Salt therapy/halotherapy has been clinically proven to support respiratory hygiene and provide relief for respiratory symptoms and can be a great resource for people in our communities to improve their respiratory systems and can help build the immune system. However, keep in mind that this virus has not been researched with halotherapy. While salt has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, according to John Carlson, an adviser to the Salt Therapy Association, (who is a Certified Environmental Specialist (EAA) and a Certified Indoor Environmental Engineer), “…dry salt aerosol does not kill the virus, but it does capture it in the air and drops it to the ground.”
If people have been told to stay at home or are self-quarantined, they should stay at home.
In our 4 years of business operation, we have helped thousands of people feel better and breathe better. Clients from 6week old infants to 90+yr olds have enjoyed Austin Salt Cave. We would really like to continue doing this. Thank you to all of our clients, family, and friends that have supported us this far. We will move forward, all of us.
Wishing you safe and healthy times,
Jack Cramer, owner of Austin Salt Cave
