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.
