The Salt Cave - Earlsfield

Visited May 2013

The receptionist was incredibly unfriendly and made me feel uncomfortable from the moment I walked in. Yet she was smiles and laughs with a gentleman that came in after me. She gave me the 3rd degree about my not having a printed Groupon voucher and made my initial experience very unpleasant. I have since found out that ALL first sessions are in fact completely free and the fact that I paid for mine is a complete con.

I have since received 2 grovelling letters from Groupon offering a 2nd session. Lol don't trust all Groupon offers. Always check with the company first and research their costs etc. before you pay for anything. It turns out that Groupon and some of the companies they produce offers with are in fact charging for what are otherwise free goods or cheaper ones direct or from other outlets, this is now the 3rd in 2 weeks that I've spotted.

As for the therapy itself, as an avid therapy fan, I was a little disappointed. I have had a more healing experience on a sunny day at the beach and have felt more from my personal negative ioniser and oxygen cans. The atmosphere is dry and static and not humid like natural mines. I am in no doubt that all the miracle cure stories, particularly the ones from people who have had 1 or 2 visits can't be true. The therapy as I understand it is based on polish miners with long term exposure in salt mines and also war victims hiding, again long term, in salt caves. Pleasant but definitely needs long term financial and time commitment to have any significant effect imo. Cheaper to take day trips to the seaside and definitely more healing....but all that said...don't take my word for it...try it for yourself but make sure you get your free session, don't be a sucker like me and pay for the free session lol! And don't take any crap from the staff.
