BOCA RATON, FL — April 6, 2017 — Licensed massage therapists who want to add to their skill set with Himalayan salt stone massage can now earn National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB)-approved certification and continuing education units (CEUs) through Saltability. A 6-hour online course is now available.
Created through the leadership and expertise of Saltability founder Ann Brown, Saltability’s new course provides an accessible, affordable way for therapists to learn salt stone massage.
“Certification and continuing education is vital for LMTs to provide the best possible therapy to clients and to stay competitive with their businesses,” says Saltability founder Ann Brown. “Online education has come far in order to provide convenient access to quality training for therapists, and we are pleased to achieve NCBTMB approval to endorse our new CE coursework so we may help LMTs earn certification online or work with spa directors to educate teams of up to 100 therapists.”
A more therapeutic alternative to traditional stone massage performed with basalt stones, Saltability’s Himalayan Salt Stone Massage features the use of 100 percent pure Himalayan salt stones, with 84 naturally occurring minerals and elements, known for stimulating circulation, detoxifying, improving sleep, reducing inflammation, calming the nervous system, and more.
“Ann Brown’s passion for the spa industry and her credibility as a massage therapist is one of many reasons Spa Nordstrom chose to bring in the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage to Spa Nordstrom,” said Vickie Hauck, Spa Nordstrom national spa director. “Working with Ann on the execution of bringing this service to Spa Nordstrom was flawless. We launched the Himalayan salt stone service in June 2015, and it has quickly become one of our most popular massage services with our massage therapists and our clients.”
“Himalayan salt stones enhance the therapeutic effect for the client and can easily be added to any massage,” says Diane Trieste, Saltability vice president for business development. “This course is an excellent introduction for any therapist who wants to incorporate Himalayan salt stones into their massage.”
The Saltability Himalayan salt stone massage course features a comprehensive education for students, including instructions for massage set-up, care and cleaning of salt stones, a special emphasis on body mechanics and ergonomics, how to communicate the therapeutic benefits of Himalayan salt to clients and more.
Saltability was named a 2016 Innovate Award winner by the International Spa Association for its Himalayan Salt Stone Massage, an eco-friendly innovation that features no water, no chemicals and low energy usage compared to turkey roaster-type warmers traditionally used with basalt stone massage.
