“Between both of our passions for spa education and Eric’s newfound love for Himalayan salt stone massage, there is such a natural flow to Eric coming on board, and we are elated for him to serve as the national educator for Saltability,” said Ann Brown, Saltability founder. “We are excited to join forces with him to share the multi-therapeutic benefits of Himalayan salt stone massage and Saltability’s green and eco-friendly features with the spa industry.”
Stephenson will work to educate spa partners on Saltability treatments, developed by spa industry veteran Ann Brown, that offer a more environmentally friendly, healthier alternative to traditional stone massage.
“I fell in love with the salt stones immediately,” Stephenson says. “It’s a uniquely wonderful way to incorporate heat and the therapeutic benefits of the Himalayan salt. When applied optimally, in my personal opinion, it’s one of the finest spa experiences available. Our partnership focuses on ensuring practitioners deliver just that.”
Stephenson is a member of the International Spa Association Board of Directors and co-founder of imassage Inc., an education and consulting company dedicated to extending the careers of massage therapists and spa practitioners through customized programs focusing on preventing injury and workers’ compensation claims. He also acts as director of education for Elements Therapeutic Massage, one of the largest massage providers in the nation.
