Check Out the Inside the Salt Room at Âme Spa and Wellness Collective

According to Leo Tonkin, CEO of Salt Chamber, there are approximately 750 salt rooms in the U.S., and Salt Chamber has designed and built around 600 of them. Tonkin and Salt Chamber are responsible for the largest women's salt room in the United States, which is at the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa, which coincidentally was the venue for the first SPATEC by American Spa event earlier this year.

Join American Spa executive editor Heather Mikesell for a chat about all things salt therapy with Tonkin from inside the men's salt room at the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa, which was also a Salt Chamber project.
