Dr. Margaret Smiechowski, North America's foremost expert on Himalayan salt, is pleased to announce that her latest salt cave design is set to be revealed on March 29th, 2011, at the opening of the Tranquility Salon and Wellness Center in Carlisle, PA. Like all of her salt caves, the Carlisle cave features eco-friendly building materials and a highly sophisticated climate-controlled environment. However, this cave represents what Dr. Smiechowski calls the "new generation" of caves in the United States.

"The Carlisle cave has significant design improvements far surpassing
previous designs," says Dr. Smiechowski. "In particular, this cave has a unique proprietary ceiling design that allows for a very high-tech ventilation system, offering the visitor the best of modern technology combined with old-world salt therapy."

The Carlisle cave contains approximately 12,000 pounds of Himalayan salt, which is believed to be the purest salt on earth, containing all of the minerals that the human body requires for healthy living. The salt in this new cave is primarily of the darker burgundy color has been mined by hand without the use of equipment or chemicals. Visitors to the cave will enjoy the decor, which features recycled wood from an 1800's barn, and soft lighting from unique copper lamps. While relaxing in the peaceful environment, up to ten visitors at once will absorb the minerals from the salt, as well as the negative ions given off from it, which creates a natural detoxification effect.

Salt is used in Dr. Smiechowski's home country of Poland and throughout the world to help reduce inflammation, treat respiratory problems, prevent and reduce the severity of colds and flu, and for a wide variety of other medical problems. Tranquility Salon and Wellness Center will offer
speleotherapy, the clinical use of salt through their new salt cave, in conjunction with a full array of wellness options. "Tranquility will be offering only services using all-natural products," says Lisa Ramsey

Dr. Smiechowski created her first salt cave at the Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center in Rutland, VT, the first public Himalayan salt cave in North America, and has since created other caves throughout the United States. She is currently developing a new salt technology called the
"Halotherapy Room," which she will be debuting later this month at the Pyramid.
