Our Story

Heeeya, I’m Amy, founder of So Salty and the face behind all the saltiness..

For those who don’t know me, I am the proudest Mum of 6year old- Jacko.. He is the perfect mixture mischievous and a lot of fun. AND he is also the reason why I do most of the things I do like most parents, including opening So Salty.

My interest in Salt Therapy came from Jacko constantly having croup as a baby.. As a tiny one, Jacko was born with a permanent hearing loss and he would spend some time in and out of hospital, going onto struggle with constant respiratory issues and ear infections, associated with his hearing loss. At 3 months old came the diagnosis of asthma from our paediatrician and the suggestion of Salt Therapy.

We noticed, almost immediately the improvement in Jacko’s breathing after just one salt session.. His breathing had improved immensely, his cough sounded less chesty and he was able to sleep more peacefully even though he was still sick.. Jacko’s little face no longer felt like it was on fire, our boy was no longer the miserable little monster he once was- Salt Therapy was AMAZING!!

What a long way to drive though, 8 hours return trip, but it was worth it and we continued to attended treatments intermittently as Jacko needed between 2015 and 2020.

December 2020 ended an epic era for myself and most of Dubbo, where Awakening was sold and I finished working alongside Garth. From here I forged ahead and So Salty was born.. I was so excited to bring a new modality to Dubbo and the Central West and I didn’t stop here.

Over the years I have been privileged to meet and work with some extremely talented Therapists, from this, the idea of my next business was born. Align Health and Healing, this beauty I co-own with my fantastic business partner Christie. 

Align Health and Healing is our side hustle. A collaborative healing space full of health gurus who have come together to help the wider Central West community with a holistic approach, all offering a mixture of therapies with the common goal of helping when and where they can. 

I do hope to see you soon.

Amy
