How to Start a Salt Cave Business

Thinking about starting a salt cave business? 

We are here to help.

Are you considering starting a salt cave business

Now is the time. According to the Salt Therapy Association, there are over 2,000 facilities in the United States and Canada, and that number is expected to continue to grow.

Salt caves are becoming increasingly popular as people look for natural ways to improve their health. 

From reducing stress and anxiety to improving respiratory conditions, salt therapy offers a variety of benefits. Used in spas, wellness clinics, and doctor’s offices, salt caves are becoming a part of the health-conscious client’s everyday wellness routine.

Now is the time to start your own thriving halotherapy business.

Adding a Salt Cave to an Existing Business

If you already have an existing business, such as a spa or massage studio, adding a salt cave can be a great way to attract new customers. 

In today’s competitive marketplace, small business owners are always looking for ways to set their businesses apart from the competition and attract new customers. Salt caves are becoming an increasingly popular option, as people are looking for natural ways to reduce stress and promote relaxation. 

Here are some reasons why adding a salt cave (or SALT Booth®) to your business can help you boost your bottom line.

Increased foot traffic. When you add a salt cave to your business, you’re likely to increase foot traffic. People will come for the halotherapy and naturally check out your other offerings. 

This is especially true if you promote your salt cave on social media and in other marketing materials.

Attracts new customers. A salt cave is not your typical business, and that can be a good thing. People are always looking for new experiences, and a salt cave provides just that. If you can market your business as a place to go for a unique and relaxing experience, you will attract attention from potential new customers.

A salt cave can be a great marketing tool. Because a salt cave is such a unique concept, it is a great way to draw in new clients. You can use social media, word-of-mouth, and even traditional advertising to get the word out about your business. 

Salt Caves add revenue without additional labor costs.

Once they are established, salt caves require minimal labor. Need some inspiration?

  • Package the use of a salt cave or SALT Booth® with other services, such as massage, acupuncture, and other treatments.
  • Provide an upgrade to an existing service.
  • Create signature services.
  • Add a SALT Booth® to waiting rooms.

Adding a salt cave to your business is a great way to set yourself apart from the competition, attract new customers, and improve customer retention rates. 

If you’re looking for a way to boost your bottom line, then adding a salt cave is definitely worth considering!

Starting a Salt Cave Business from Scratch

There are many things to consider when thinking about starting a new salt cave business. It can be overwhelming, and there are some pitfalls that you want to avoid. 

We are here to make that process easier, and we recommend you set up a free consultation with us before looking for a space. 

Things to keep in mind:

  • Are you leasing? Make sure tenant improvements are allowed!
  • Drop-down ceilings will have to be redone with drywall.
  • The size of the space will determine how your business is set up. This seems obvious, but things to keep in mind are the waiting room, treatment rooms and how they will be used, and any other business add-ons. Will you have a children’s playroom? A massage studio? Stand-alone salt caves or a SALT Booth®? 

The design stage is exciting! Let us help you avoid some pitfalls with a free consultation

When you are ready to move forward we can alleviate your stress by providing customized turn-key solutions, including design, building support (including blueprints), marketing support, and more. 

We are passionate about this fast-growing healing modality and believe in setting you up for success. 

Consider Adding a SALT Booth®

A SALT Booth® is a great way to dip your toes into the salt cave business. This plug-and-go salt therapy option easily fits in a corner of the waiting room and plugs into a regular wall outlet. Would you like to learn how a SALT Booth® can earn you $6000 a month? This webinar is for you.

Don’t forget the Halogenerator

A halogenerator, or halotherapy machine, provides safe and effective salt therapy. Its sole purpose is to crush, grind, and disperse salt into the room. The machine turns a room decorated with salt into a halotherapy room, or a true salt cave. You can learn more about these vital machines here

The most important thing to remember is that without a halogenerator, you simply have a room decorated like a salt cave.

Is a Salt Cave a Good Business?


Starting a new business supports the community’s overall drive towards healthy living, increases traffic to an existing office, attract new clients, and helps with client retention. 

Most importantly, you will be providing a necessary service to your community by offering a unique healing modality. And, after the initial cost, halotherapy has a very low overhead

With the ever-growing popularity of wellness and alternative health, starting a salt cave business can be a lucrative endeavor. And with our help, you can get your salt cave business up and running in no time.
