The salt room treatment offered by Bakwena Spa takes between 30-45 minutes.
Before entering the salt room, patients are required to remove their shoes. We recommend going in barefoot, as the sensation of the salt rocks beneath your bare feet is pleasant and invigorating. Patients are also required to leave their electronic devices behind, which is an excellent opportunity for a mini digital detox.
During the treatment, most people sit quietly and relax or meditate while breathing in the salt-infused air. There may be a peaceful soundtrack playing in the background, much like the soft music or sounds of nature you’d hear during any massage treatment.
