KIDS TIME/STORY TIME IN THE CAVE
For 20+ years Sara's Stories has been telling stories to smiling faces. We feel very lucky to have her at The Salt Cave! Below is all about how she has come to be.
With a M.A. in Library and Information Science from the College of St Catherine/Rosary College (now Dominican University) focusing on Children’s Literature and work, I was ready to go. My adventure began at the Hedberg Public Library (HPL) in Janesville, Wisconsin, but took me also to the St. Paul Public Library System (SPPL), Minneapolis Public Library System (MPL), and the Anoka County Library System. Staying home when my son was born offered me a new opportunity to continue my library work through a small business in more of a consultant/teacher role. Over the years, I’ve shared hundreds or story programs to all ages of children at libraries, bookstores, ECFE’s, Childcare centers, community events, and your homes.
I began playing the violin at the age of 3½ and have enjoyed playing semi-professionally with the South Dakota Symphony, the Janesville/Beloit Symphony, and the Mississippi Valley Chamber Orchestra. My primary instrument is the violin which I enjoy using in my programs. However, I play and use other instruments as well. The inclusion of music to my programs has become a powerful tool that not only grab’s attention but also introduces genres, creates excitement, and encourages fun.
I have a passion for children’s literature and strive to help parents and caregivers realize their little one’s full potential. By planting the seeds of Early Literacy, you will help you child prepare for reading far before the actual time of reading. Even more importantly you will create a lasting bond with your child through the time you shared reading, singing, rhyming, talking, touching and laughing. Children and adults of all ages will benefit from this positive one-on-one time.
Watching my own two children grow in this way has made my heart full, leaving lasting memories. You too will make memories, have fun and benefit from early learning.
Please join us whenever you can! The Story Time schedule is posted as an event on Facebook so please check there or give us a call with any questions.
ALSO, having two caves allows us to accommodate kids at any of our open hours! This has always been an essential part of our vision and we are so excited to be able to provide a fun AND therapeutic experience to help children feel better naturally. We provide a basket of toys and books for all to enjoy while the salt helps loosen congestion and open airways.
We are SO excited to be partners with Tula SPA! Tula Spa has won "Best Spa" two years in the SW Journal, is an Organic Spa that offers Massage, Skin Care, Waxing and Eyelash Extensions... and it's only 6 blocks away!
You can now add a chair massage to your Salt Cave Session for an additional $1.50 per minute (minimum of 15 minutes - this fee does not include tax or gratuity).Chair Massages are an excellent way to get to trouble areas in the back, neck, arms, and feet within a shorter amount of time. Tula's #mobilemassages vary from Swedish/relaxation, Therapeutic, Trigger Point, Deep tissue and Reflexology. The goal of adding a massage to your Salt Cave Session is that clients will feel even more quickly relaxed as they absorb all of the benefits that the Salt Cave has to offer.
General Relaxation Massage (also known as Swedish Massage) involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on the topmost layers of muscles combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. It can also aid in recovery after an injury. This type of massage is recommended for relaxation, stress relief, and all over blood and lymph circulation improvement.
The Salt Cave is a wonderful place to practice yoga, as deep breathing can help to maximize the benefits of salt therapy. Tara-Lee Bryant, founder of Peace by Piece Yoga, has been practicing and teaching yoga throughout the East Coast and Midwest since 2008. Originally trained in Hatha Yoga, Tara-Lee has continued her studies in pre-natal, vinyasa, positive meditation and pranayama techniques. Salt Cave Yoga is currently available for private yoga sessions with 4 or more people. Call or email us for scheduling/pricing details.
GUIDED MEDITATION / STRESS RESCUE
Experience guided meditation in one of the most unique locations in Minnesota, led by Sara Gebeke of TrueSanctuary.com. Discover the combined benefits of meditation and salt therapy, both of which have been used for centuries to improve health and reduce stress. In combination with the benefits of salt therapy, meditation can also support increased serotonin levels in the brain and promote more clarity and creativity. Upcoming sessions include Chi Breath Meditation, which involves deep breathing while in a seated meditation as well as a moving meditation called Chi-do, and Max Meditation System, which is a practice based on a fusion of ancient techniques and modern principles of psychology and neuro-linguistic programming.
The combination of the salt cave health benefits along with our Stress Rescue techniques will help restore your body and mind. You’ll receive relaxation techniques, such as breathing exercises, meditation, visualization, and chi exercises, all while detoxifying your body in the salt cave environment.
