Salt caves are said to help with one's allergies and sinusesThere’s a salty smell in Cleveland’s air and it has nothing to do with food.

The Europa International Salon and Spa has opened what is called a "salt cave," which some believe has anti-inflammatory properties that can treat the common cold and allergies, WKYC.com reports.

"I had somebody here sleeping for 20 minutes. And she got up, and said she had the feeling as if she slept for eight hours, completely relaxed, pink cheeks and healthy," spa owner Tanya Sigal told the news provider.

Salt therapy, which is also known as halotherapy, has reportedly increased in popularity in some Eastern European spas with many enthusiasts claiming the caves can treat various conditions, including some allergies.

Sigal added that the cave, which is surrounded in natural Himalayan salt, was a good way to relax and rid a person of stress, which may be heightened in many given the rising unemployment rate and weakened economy.

This kind of treatment could help serious conditions as well.

The New England Journal of Medicine published a study in 2006 that found halotherapy to be a safe and effective supplemental treatment for patients living with cystic fibrosis.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19480013-ADNFCR
