D's Dish: Therapeutic Salt Cave Comes to Forest

Forest, VA - Central Virginians are really getting unique when it comes to creating businesses. In a few weeks, a salt spa will open in Forest. It is one of only a handful in the United States, and one of two in Virginia.

"So here's the main ingredient for London's Salt Spa. Here it is," Debbie Naff, Owner London's Salt Spa said. as she took us inside a therapeutic salt cave constructed with pink Himalayan salt rocks from the ground up.

Naff says the walls are packed with minerals that can help treat allergies, ailments and skin disorders. Sessions last 45 minutes.

"Hopefully Central Virginia is really going to enjoy having this in the area so that they can come and relax," Naff said.

It is a project one year in the making for Naff. She says her husband and son have bad allergies and after visiting a cave similar to this one in Northern Virginia and seeing the results, she just had to open one in our neck of the woods.

"The rocks are wonderful to bathe in. If you have eczema, psoriasis, it totally gets rid of it," Naff said.

Besides the cave, there is a massage room with salt bricks and plates.

Naff says she plans to open Mid November.Besides the salt cave, the company will offer massages, scrubs and reflexology sessions, among other things.
