How Did We Create Our Name?

Salt Air: Salt (adjective) Overflowed with salt waters. Chosen from the distinctive salty marsh aroma that can be found in the beautiful Charleston, South Carolina Lowcountry. And for those of us lucky enough to call this historical place our home, this title suits.

Exchange: (noun) An occurrence in which people give information to each other. In fact, what better ways to enhance your own overall wellness than to receive helpful concepts and lessons as well as to provide feedback on the practices and behaviors you lead for your own healthy lifestyle.
