All you need to do is go in and lie on a chaise longue under the calming lights, listen to soft music, bury your feet in salt and enjoy being surrounded by the purity of the color white and the freshness of clean air.
The cave has a light and sound system that was set specifically by psychologists to fit the type of treatment that is being received; and it differs from a type to another as each of the colors of light in the ceiling has something to do with a specific body organ (for example: green light is comforting for the eyes and calms the nerves/ Blue light calms the brain and keeps you focused) and according to the type of treatment you are receiving convenient music and lights are set, and by the way you leave your mobile, negative thoughts and problems at the door before you get in the cave and start a journey of relaxation and quietness.
