Our Story

At Salt Caves we first opened our doors in Toowoomba in June 2011, but the journey of Salt Caves began well before that day. When owners Shaun and Sara visited parents in Poland and Shaun’s long standing sinus and hay fever reared its ugly head they knew exactly what to do to help him out… take him to a Salt Room! After suffering for over 12 years the relief Shaun felt from using the rooms in Europe was nothing but a miracle. This sparked an interest for them both as to why this common European therapy was not being used in Australia.

Shaun and Sara began their journey of research into the ailments, benefits, equipment and anything else you can think of associated with Salt Therapy. They met experts in both Poland and Germany and spoke to many more from throughout Europe and the Himalayas. Eventually the concept for Salt Caves was born.

One year after opening the doors to Salt Caves Toowoomba, the plans for the next expansion to Salt Caves Mooloolaba were in the pipeline and in September 2013 the doors were open, boasting two salt rooms and a spacious reception area with a wide product range.

Today Shaun and Sara work tightly with there team, looking after there clients and the next development for Salt Caves.
