A Success Story: Sarita Khan, Vermont Salt Cave Spa and Halotherapy Center

With a start-up loan from Community Capital for equipment and renovations, Sarita opened to customers seeking an unusual and energizing spa experience, as well as those seeking halotherapy (salt therapy). Believed to help heal illnesses of the respiratory system, skin issues and those suffering from mental health issues or depression, the cave offers a relaxing, drug-free experience using a controlled air medium that simulates the microclimate of a natural salt cave. Sarita initially connected with halotherapy benefits when her daughter experienced salt cave therapy in Chicago. Now, she brings salt cave therapy – innovative yet rooted in tradition – to her beautifully renovated northern Vermont barn.
