SPECTRUM NEWS VIDEO: Designed to look like an ancient Himalayan mountain salt cave, the Salt Den in Latham is a unique retreat.

The business offers a salt cave. It is used for halotherapy, along known as salt therapy. The cave walls are made entirely of Himalayan salt. The floor is covered with granular salt. A machine in the next room crushes salt before pumping particles into the air.

Sitting inside the space is intended to help with a variety of respiratory and skin disorders. 

The Salt Den is open 7 days a week. The official grand opening is in June.

Spectrum News reporter Terry Stackhouse tested out the treatment and filed this report.
