The current focus on health is distinctly different than it was in the not-so-distant past. Today, a large percentage of people are more interested in engaging in the latest trends in prevention, wellness and the reversal of age-related dysfunctions than they are in simply making an appointment for an annual checkup. A passion for staying ahead of trends in wellness and anti-aging led Andrea Geresdi to open the first Salt Cave in Naples in 2009. “I wanted to introduce Southwest Floridians to the health benefits of halotherapy, which exposes people to the healing properties of salt,” says Geresdi, who since opening, has stayed ahead of the curve, steadily adding a menu of anti-aging and preventive services to her offerings.

The Salt Cave now provides personal health consultations for individuals interested in an individualized detox, as well as dietary and herbal protocols, a far-infrared sauna, polarized light therapy, ionic detox footbath, cupping therapy, a biofeedback system, John of God crystal bed therapy, bio-stimulation and compression therapy. “I simply paid attention to what my clients were searching for, which is why the Salt Cave has evolved into more of a one-stop anti-aging experience that relies on health and wellness protocols,” explains Geresdi, a naturopathic trained health practitioner.

The far-infrared sauna heats the muscles and produces increased blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory conditions such as edema, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.

Polarized (VIP) light therapy acts to regenerate cellular activity that is effective in the treatment of general health disorders. It can relieve pain and accelerate wound healing, as well as aid in the repair of broken bones. As a revolutionary skin care device, it works to alleviate cellulite, wrinkles, acne and other conditions.

The ionic detox footbath sends a small current that travels in a circuit through the body and generates negatively charged ions in the water.

Cupping therapy is an aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through suction and negative pressure, massage cupping releases the rigidity of soft tissue; drains excess fluids and toxins; loosens adhesions and lifts connective tissue, bringing blood flow to skin and muscles.

A biofeedback/QXCI machine is an aspect of the new field of energy medicine. Non-invasive, it addresses the electrical properties of the body through stress reactivity testing of the body’s entire bio-energetic field.

John of God’s crystal bed has seven clear and highly polished Vogel-cut quartz crystals suspended approximately 12 inches above a massage table. Each crystal has been shaped to a specific frequency, and is aligned above one of the seven chakras. Colored lights, chosen to match the frequency of chakra colors, radiate light and energy through the crystals to each respective chakra, and shine on and off in rhythms that cleanse, balance, and align energy.

Biostimulation is a form of electrotherapy that utilizes microtechnology to electrically stimulate the muscles through the skin. The therapy can be applied for muscle toning, beauty treatments, passive exercise and as a form of physical therapy.

Compression therapy is an alterative treatment for chronic swelling and vein problems. It also enhances the immune system, digestion, circulation, detoxification, wound care, weight loss and cellulite reduction.

The Salt Cave is located at 4962 Tamiami Tr. N., in Naples. For more information call 239-403-9170 or visit
