Couple opening salt cave in Bismarck


A husband and wife are opening a therapeutic salt cave in Bismarck.

Pat and Agata Zidon will open Salt Cave Wellness Relaxation Center in Pinehurst Square at 1001 W. Interstate Ave. in mid-April.

“In our center we will have a salt cave, far-infrared sauna, massage treatments and retail store with Himalayan salt products,” Pat Zidon said.

The salt cave is a room containing about 12,000 pounds of Himalayan salt, Zidon said. Customers can sit in the dim room in zero-gravity chairs while soothing music plays. The air is infused with salt particles, which helps with relaxation, respiratory illnesses and skin problems.

Zidon said the Himalayan salt is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. He said salt therapy is widely used in Central and Eastern Europe.

In addition to the salt cave, the center also has a sauna and offers massages, Zidon said.

Hours will be 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. The center will be open Saturday and Sunday by appointment only.

Business receiving tax exemption

CC’s Physical Therapy in downtown Bismarck was approved for a Renaissance zone state income tax exemption.

The exemption is for a lease on space at 100 W. Broadway Ave., the Broadway Centre building.

The business wants to lease 3,000 square feet on the building’s first floor in the southeast corner for its physical therapy office and fitness studio.

The business is currently in a 1,100-square-foot space located at 215 E. Broadway Ave.

With the expansion, two to three new employees will be added. Costs for the internal construction work in the Broadway Centre space are estimated to be between $330,000 to $450,000, according Bismarck city records.

Jason Tomanek, the city’s downtown planner, said the tax exemption approval from the city and state is tentative.

The business owner can begin construction in the new location. The exemptions will then be reviewed after the investment has been made before receiving final approval and exemptions begin, Tomanek said.
