It's a cool cave In Ellicottville, but not the kind with bats or dangling stalactites. Tracy Draper created the cave a few years ago and says "there's fifteen or twenty tons of Himalayan salt here imported from overseas."

Inside the business you'll discover salt lamps, chunks of salt and all kinds of shapes and sizes of salt for sale. The main attraction is the salt cave with wall to wall salt. It even has salt on the floor. Tracy says "there's four inches of salt on the floor, it's supposed to feel like the beach,"

Tracy, a massage therapist, got hooked on salt for what she says are the health benefits saying "one session is equal to four days at the beach inhaling the salt opens up your airways and makes you breathe better."

Forty-five minute sessions in the Salt Cave begin at $30 per person.  If you want to find out more about the Salt Cave or the other services provided by Ellicottville Salt Cave Halotherapy Spa you can visit their website
