Meet Sheila Alba

Sheila Alba is the owner and operator of the Salt Grotto located in Brandon, Florida. Sheila a native of the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. While living in Puerto Rico, Sheila spent 10 years managing two family-owned businesses in the retail and food industry offering exceptional customer support and enthusiastic hospitality.  During this time, her experiences and upbringing established her moral foundations of God, family, and building long-lasting relationships. 

Sheila and her family relocated back to Florida in 2018 where she expanded her skill sets by managing a multi-family housing and property management company in Safety Harbor. Shortly after, she was given the opportunity to work side by side with her mother at The Salt Grotto, a Tampa Bay Area Dry Salt Inhalation Therapy and Massage Establishment that has been serving clients since 2014. Here, Sheila discovered her true passion in Salt Therapy and quickly fell in love with the industry and the clients she served. This passion led Sheila to become a subject matter expert in Dry Salt Inhalation therapy by researching and discovering the scientifically proven results the therapy has to offer.

Sheila is a graduate of the University of South Florida with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She has completed several certification and training programs with The Salt Therapy Association including becoming a Certified Halo Therapist. Her desire is to pass all the wonderful benefits of Salt Inhalation Therapy on to her clients in a safe, healthy, and relaxing environment. Sheila recently acquired and is now the owner of The Salt Grotto with a smaller more intimate location in JC Salons Brandon Suites. Look out for the upcoming announcements and invitation for a Grand Reopening and Activities.
