Keeping your scheduled appointment shows respect for your service providers schedule.  Service providers appointments are scheduled back-to-back, and often there is a waiting list of guests who were unable to fit in.  If you do not show, or cancel your appointment too late, this is time wasted for the service provider and a lost opportunity for another guest to be seen. Therefore, in effort to maintain productive schedules at Purple Sage, and give all guests the opportunity to be seen, we require a 48 - hour notice for cancellation of all scheduled appointments. 


The Salt Cave

The Salt Cave was designed to help you leave your worries behind with the aid of soft golden lighting from the Himalayan Salt, peaceful music, and comfortable Anti Gravity lounge chairs with fresh blankets. We encourage this quiet time to be used for relaxation or meditation. This will ensure a quality experience for all in attendance. No electronics are allowed in the Salt Cave. The Salt Cave creates a negative ion environment that helps relieve stress from today’s electronic devices.

Aside from the the already rich Himalayan Salt, a salt generator crushes pharmaceutical grade salt into micron-sized dry aerosol particles that are inhaled. Salt/Halotherapy is based on salt’s natural anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory properties and the negative ions it produces. The rich negative ion effect can be felt in nature in places like the ocean, near waterfalls and in pine forests. Our micro climate of negative ions and abundant minerals and elements packs the benefits of two days at the ocean into a 45 minute session. In this day and age we are exposed to a barrage of electromagnetic fields that produce positive ions such as from TV’s, cell phones, computers, power lines, appliances, etc. Himalayan salt’s natural production of negative ions benefits the whole body system and combats the effects of free radicals (positive ions) from our environment.

The benefits of halotherapy are wide ranging, with participants reporting a myriad of health benefits including increased mental acuity, reduced stress, reduced inflammation, and improved moods. Our salt cave is the cornerstone of our mission to provide holistic, healing services to our clients.

While you rest comfortably in a zero gravity chair in the Salt Cave, this systematic meditation takes you through the five layers of self, leaving you with a sense of wholeness.
