It shouldn’t be a surprise that I love finding new interesting shops, places, and trying new things that pop up. Enter Salt and Soles!
So today I want to share with you something new I found in Nashville! I spent four years in and around the Belmont campus while getting my undergrad. That led me to the discovery of one of my favorite coffee shops. Right next to said coffee shop is how I discovered the subject of today’s post!
Salt and Soles is a Himalayan salt cave right in the middle of Nashville! I debated trying it out for a few weeks and then I finally took the plunge this week and I loved it! It was such a relaxing and grounding experience, especially in a city. Living part time out in the country I get my fill of fresh air, but the other 50% of the time when I’m in Nashville, the city air doesn’t always go unnoticed by me!
I opted to try the full experience and booked a salt cave session with reflexology. They have a separate reflexology room, BUT you can opt to have the entire experience IN the salt cave! In my opinion this is the best option because the salt cave is SO cool and very zen. Connie, who was my reflexology therapist (and who also happens to be a co-owner!), was so knowledgable about the meridian points on the foot and what areas of my body were holding tension.
After the reflexology we sat in the cave for another 15-20 minutes just inhaling all the benefits of being in a Himalayan salt cave.
The salt is beneficial for so many things, but specifically breathing in salt infused air is excellent for people with congestion, allergies, and apparently it acts as “a toothbrush for your lungs” according to the staff at Salt and Soles! Himalayan salt is also beneficial for your skin, the pH balance of your body, aids in proper metabolism function and can help balance the minerals in our bodies.
I’m already planning to go back because I found the cave to be SO relaxing! I’ll definitely be booking the reflexology again as well. Tell me the coolest new thing you’ve discovered in your city?! I’d love to add some “locals only” spots to my travel list when I visit your neck of the woods!
Looks like a very cool place! Is that carpet?
And the walls are those salt blocks?
Yes! The whole room is encased in salt!
It’s actually salt! Himalayan salt to be exact!
