Insightful dialogue to explore the meaning of being and living ‘well.’

Candid, authentic conversations with industry thought leaders exploring what it means to be ‘well’ in all aspects of our lives…our health, relationships, finances, work, mind, body, and spirit.

Life is defined by the distinctions and choices you make.

Seeking first to understand is a great habit to develop. Often our automatic, reactive way of listening and responding to information and communications can be limiting. Our perspectives, opinions, and experiences shape the lens we see the world. By exploring different perspectives or learning something that you didn’t know is how we gain insights to making better choices in life, particularly around wellness.

Residential Salt Rooms


January 18, 20242 min read

SALT Chamber, the pioneer and leader in custom salt room concepts and experiences, is partnering with apartment complexes, condominiums, and luxury residences to design and install next-generation salt rooms. Salt rooms have become the “go-to” wellness modality for residential spas for developing a competitive advantage while improving residents’ respiratory health.

Dry salt therapy is an ideal wellness service for a new type of spa-goer focused on individualized programming and a healthy lifestyle, helping to cleanse the respiratory system, improve lung function, boost the immune system, and enhance mental wellness.

Wendy Bosalavage, President and Chief Revenue Officer of LIVunLtd, is working with SALT Chamber to design salt rooms in many of the 60 luxury residences in New York City.

“Salt rooms have become the new ‘must-have’,” said Bosalavage. “Developers recognize how important it is to have the amenities that increase the value per square foot in either a rental or condominium environment.”

Auberge Beach Residences in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is a luxury residence that has a spa with two salt rooms, one for men and one for women.

“Our salt rooms have been hugely popular. Residents of luxury buildings want tools for healthy living at their fingertips,” says Spa Director Linda Higgs. “People want to live in a place where they don’t have to leave home to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is truer than ever post-Covid.”

Solaia, a 70-unit boutique, luxury, high-rise condominium project overlooking the Hudson River in North Bergen, New Jersey, spared no expense with their beautiful salt room. Residents can enjoy 10-, 15-, or 30-minute salt therapy sessions as part of their wellness circuit.

“We were looking to add something unique at Solaia, and salt therapy fit in perfectly because it’s so user-friendly,” said Dyllan Mont, Special Projects and Finishes Manager for Skyline Development Group. “Residents run the programs unattended. It’s a great use of square footage that creates a lifestyle experience—something people are using regularly and reaping the health benefits. Every single person that has used the salt room has said to me that they are breathing so much deeper and it’s crazy how much of an effect it really does have. We are definitely looking to do salt rooms in future residential projects.”
