You’ll enter the salt cave and choose to sit in one of the reclining zero-gravity lounge chairs, or you can lay on top of the salt floor on a mat.

Private sessions are 45 minutes long, and during this time you can relax or meditate while you breathe in the salt — some folks even take this time to take a nap.
