The state’s first therapeutic salt cave is opening at 48th & Nicollet in a couple of weeks.

The Salt Cave at 4811 Nicollet Ave. S. will use hand-mined Himalayan salt to help people with allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions. It was designed by Margaret Smiechowski and built by Scott Wertkin who will run it with his wife Jenni Dorfsman, according to a news release.

The couple got interested in salt caves when they visited one in Florida with their 12-year-old son who has asthma.

“My goal in opening The Salt Cave is to improve the quality of life for people who are suffering from asthma, allergies, cystic fibrosis, and other problems,” Dorfsman said.

The salt cave sessions last 45 minutes and cost $30. Up to eight people can be in the salt cave at one time.
