Our Approach to Business

Our Story - Salt Cave Construction and Design

Our goal is to revolutionize the health and wellness sector. We believe salt therapy (aka. Halotherapy) should be accessible to everyone, so we strive to be the most competitive company at all times.

At Select Salt, our goal is to share the unique benefits of salt cave therapy (halotherapy) with the world. Our family owned and operated business provides tailor-made design and building services. This allows us to create North America’s finest Himalayan salt caves, salt rooms and saunas.

Continuous Improvement

We believe we are only as good as our last project. Our employees are constantly looking for ways to innovate and inspire future creativity. Our material is carefully sourced with rigorous quality control and traceability from our mines to our warehouse. No project is too big or too small.

Cutting Corners

About Select Salt: Salt Cave Builders and DesignWe are passionate about our product. We source only the highest quality Himalayan salt, well known for its beauty and healing properties, direct from the Himalayan Mountains. This gorgeous mineral is then transformed by our team of designers and builders.

One boulder and brick at a time, we create truly stunning salt rooms. We pride ourselves on offering the highest quality materials, customer service, and construction.  The only corners we cut are those of the bricks measured to fit your unique salt cave project.

Our Reach

Our reach is Global! We welcome projects and ideas from all corners of the world.

We have built salt therapy rooms and wellness clinics across North America. Some of our work can be found in Chicago, Texas, Rhode Island, Brooklyn, Connecticut, Manhattan, Georgia, British Columbia, Ottawa and Guelph. We help our clients transform their vision into reality. By creating unique, state-of-the-art man-made microclimates, we harness the raw beauty and healing powers found in salt. Let us help you bring your vision to life.

Accountability

A word that is often used but seldom defined. Yes of course we believe in “accountability” but more specifically, to us it means the clients complete and utter peace of mind the moment we are done their buildout! We call this the Select Salt Guarantee: Our team shows you exactly how to operate your salt cave or salt room, including the HaloGenerator. We do not leave your build-out site until you are satisfied and confident.

From Design To Construction

Salt Cave Design and ConstructionEach salt cave is uniquely tailored to your vision. Select Salt provides guidance every step of the way — from planning to design and construction. Our full-service, hands-on approach can be as simple or elaborate as you choose.

Our caves also feature truly stunning elements including fibre-optic lighting, state-of-the-art audio, enhanced halo-therapy equipment (such as the HaloGenerator) and even water cascades. Most of all, the only limit to your salt cave is your own imagination. Let us help you bring your vision to life.
