Amid a time of confusion and uncertainty, Detroit Native, Shawn Binion, desired to bring peace and harmony to those in need of healing. This desire further prompted Shawn to create a zen-like, therapeutic environment where people can receive natural healing services. Serenity Cave was designed to appeal to most of the senses and helps people achieve physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

Lishawnna (Shawn) Binion was born in Detroit, MI on May 4, 1981. She graduated from High School in 1998. Shawn then went on to earn a Bachelors in Psychology from Wayne State University and a Masters in Public Administration from Oakland University.

Shawn worked in the field of Human Services for 13 years in the following areas: Youth Counseling, Foster Care Case Management, Juvenile Justice, Licensing, Crisis Counseling and Support Coordination. Though Shawn has an extensive history in the helping field, she always felt a need to do more to help others. A couple of years ago, Shawn began embarking on a spiritual journey that ultimately altered the direction of her life. This journey brought Shawn to realize the natural gifts she had been neglecting. These gifts needed to be shared with others.

All services offered at Serenity Cave are provided in conjunction with Halotherapy. The spa is equipped with a halogenerator that continuously disperses a specific amount of salt into the air. Salt therapy is a non-harmful, alternative approach to help with the following conditions: Respiratory Issues, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD, Asthma, Bronchitis, Shortness of Breath, Cough and Insomnia. It also helps alleviate skill conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis and Acne. Other benefits of Halotherapy is that the salt is an Antibacterial, Anti-Inflammatory, Antihistamine and a Decongestant. Even without receiving services, simply being in the spa for 30-45 minutes is equivalent to spending 8-9 hours breathing salty sea air in a beach-like environment.

The spa has retained a steady flow of customers since its grand opening in September and continues to gain momentum.

It is these types of sentiments that reaffirm Shawn that she is truly making a positive impact on the lives of her spa clients.
