What our clients say


Read a review of Saltability Himalayan Salt Stone Massage from Michael Tompkins, past chairman of the International Spa Association and executive recruiter at Hutchinson Consulting:

I'm not sure when I realized it was a game changer. It could have been when I first walked into the treatment room and saw the beautifully glowing Himalayan salt stones, but it wasn't. In fact, it took talking to Saltability founder Ann Brown, seeing the stones displayed in the treatment room, having not one but TWO salt stone massages, and finally using them with my own therapist hands before I realized how big this new trend will be.


SPA DIRECTORS

William Wesley Meyers, regional director of spa, North America, Langham Hotels & Resorts

It has been a pleasure to work with Ann Marie Brown and the Saltability team to introduce their innovative offering to our guests of Chuan Spa Chicago. Aesthetically pleasing to the eye and beneficial to both the guest and therapist, Saltability’s Warm Himalayan Salt Stone Massage completely elevates and transforms the traditional hot stone massage experience into a relevant and proven, therapeutically beneficial full-body well-being experience.

Guests enjoy the soothing warmth of the stones as they are placed in key areas to aid in melting restrictive fascia, allowing the therapist to work deeper into the muscles in addition to them gliding over the body. Guests have reported the ability to more quickly get to “that place” finding a deeper sense of relaxation, with their skin revived in appearance and glowing. Equally, therapists enjoy utilizing Himalayan salt to perform treatments as they reap the same benefits as the guests, in addition to minimizing turnaround time as the stones are anti-microbial and easier to clean in comparison to traditional stones.


Virginia Lara, spa director, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Boston

We are thrilled to introduce at our Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Boston the Himalayan hot stones from Saltability. Our guests and therapists are loving it, and it really takes our hot stone treatment to a completely different level with a beautiful holistic approach.

Our partnership with Saltability is effective because of the authenticity of the brand, and therapists and guests love the treatments. There is constant support with training, and they always have something new and innovative. Their values and principles as well as their involvement with the community and charity organizations is remarkable. They are passionate about delivering wellness and giving back to the community.


Vickie Hauck, national spa director, Spa Nordstrom

Ann Brown is an absolute delight to work with! Her passion for the spa industry and her credibility as a massage therapist is one of many reasons Spa Nordstrom chose to work with Ann and bring in the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage to Spa Nordstrom. 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. Ann continues to be available to answer questions with our massage therapists and was gracious enough to host several conference calls with our massage therapists to educate them on the benefits of the Himalayan salt stones and ensure we had a proper launch to introduce the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. The calls were a key factor to our successful launch. Ann is a true professional, and I highly recommend working with her.


Laurie Lively, spa manager, The Greenbrier

The Greenbrier staff are getting so excited to launch Saltability's Himalayan Salt Stone Massage on May 1, 2016. They really enjoy doing the massage and love the therapeutic benefits of hand-carved Himalayan salt massage stones.


Charlotte Prescott, director of spa and fitness, The Biltmore

In line with our Benessere program (meaning “wellness” in Italian), we look to enhance our guests’ experiences with wellness-intended opportunities throughout the property.  It made perfect sense to us that we would incorporate the Himalayan salt stones into our Mineral Wellness Ritual, which is designed to help the spa-goer detoxify, remineralize and restore balance to the body and mind. I am passionate about inspiring our guests to take a wellness remedy home from their experiences with us. I loved that bringing Himalayan salt into our saunas not only enhanced the dry heat experience, but also serve as an education tool to our guests about the many benefits of Himalayan salt. There are so many benefits and so many ways to use the salts. Showing and sharing how easy it is to use will hopefully help to spread this amazing, natural and therapeutic secret.


Adriana Cezar, assistant spa director, The Biltmore

The Wellness Body Ritual was created to feature the healing powers of Himalayan salt stones, and it has been a success among our hotel and local guests.


Cathy Cluff, president and CEO, The Oaks at Ojai

The Oaks used the Saltability foot warmers and heart stones at a recent ISPA media event in Los Angeles. I have to say the press was impressed. They LOVED the feel and the relaxing heat along with the natural benefits emitted from Himalayan salt. It was a great way for The Oaks to introduce our newest service to the press. So far our guests are enjoying it, but I think our therapists are the true winners! They love the look, the natural benefits and the ease of maintenance compared to traditional hot stone massage. For me personally, as an owner, I loved the support and great follow-through of Saltability as a company. Ann was a joy to work with.


Tammy Pahel, The Spa at Turnberry Isle Miami

Saltability provides a healthy and relaxing experience and needs to be added to your spa menu.


Matt Turner, spa director, Cavallo Point

Our Spa looks for products that have healing benefits beyond basic treatments, so we chose to use Saltability’s Himalayan salt stones for our hot stone massages (over traditional stones). When the salt crystals are heated, they release negative ions, which help elevate the mood and normalize blood pH. The Himalayan salt stones also create an enhanced ambiance in all of our treatment rooms with their pink glow.


Marci Howard-May, director of spa and wellness, Red Mountain Resort

I discovered Saltability at ISPA 2014. I knew from that moment, we needed to try this treatment. We ordered one set to sample the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage for ourselves. Having been a longtime proponent of warm basalt stone treatments, I was curious to see how the salt stones compared. I was very surprised in the significant difference I felt with deeper and more complete relaxation of my muscle tissue from the minerals contained in the salt. My skin felt lightly exfoliated and a bit tingly as well after the massage. I felt lengthened and very calm and grounded, even more so than from warm basalt stone massages. The massage stones feel amazing to work with. The way they are shaped really allows you a lot of flexibility with how you can use each stone to get into trigger points or glide smoothly, and they are easy to hold. You literally feel the recipient's muscle tissue melt away underneath you in a way that does not happen with basalt stones. The warmer is so pretty in the room and allows a shorter warm-up time. The disinfectant made things so easy for clean up. We were able to extend our treatment time as we did not need to spend much time disinfecting the stones between each guest. Once, a few of our therapists also tried the treatment; we knew we had to bring in a set for every room and start offering the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage in place of our Canyon Warm Stone massage. Our therapists and guests fell in love with the treatment immediately. For retail, we brought in the stones, sole jars and lamps. The retail display draws people in, and they often will upgrade their treatment once they have seen and felt one of the massage stones. Our guests have been enjoying the fact that they can take the benefits of the treatment home with them. We can hardly keep the massage stones in stock!


Melissa Boris, spa director, SoJo Spa Club 

From a business perspective, I have never seen so many stone massages reserved since I started in this industry! Our guests are quite drawn to our heated Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. Thank you, Saltability, for such a lovely and sustainable product!


Marcia Lane, owner, The Lane Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

The Lane Spa in Palm Beach Gardens has been treating clients in our day spa since Saltability launched this warming, stress reducing and exfoliating massage. My therapists are grateful for easy sanitizing with the Decon 30, and the number of stones on our bamboo tray are just right.


Katlyn Hatcher, director of spa and wellness, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort

We have received wonderful feedback from our regular guests who are always excited to see a change or upgrade. Many of our guests have been coming to Nemacolin for five, 10 or even 20 years, so they are always noticing new additions. We also see many well-traveled new guests every day, and we are always striving to create a lasting impression. Our staff has been very enthusiastic as many therapists share the interest in salt therapy. We recently received our first comment card mentioning the salt wall, which was fantastic!


Michelle Adams, owner and manager, Lake Powell Massage and Spa Boutique

During the 20 years that I have worked in the spa industry as a massage therapist, a resort spa manager and now an owner of my own spa, the Himalayan stones by Saltability are truly one of the best additions to our industry. I used to dread performing hot stone massage on my clients due to the prep time, clean-up time and inconsistent temperatures to the stones that I continually experienced with the heating roasters. Now I look forward to using my stones; no water to deal with, no scalding hot stones, and easy, fast clean up. What a wonderful product!

Marissa Edwards, spa director, Aarna Spa

Wanting to capture the healing benefits of Himalayan salt in our treatments, our seaside spa turned to Saltability and have had tremendous success. Their stone warmers provide a healing glow that comforts guests even before the treatment begins. With incredible varied retail offerings, the Saltablity brand not only offers unique menu enhancement, but is also a boost for every spa's bottom line.


Sienna Creasy, spa director, Grande Spa, Jewel Resorts & Hilton Rose Hall

After researching the vast benefits of salt therapy and being drawn to the absolute beauty of this calming natural element, I was extremely passionate about bringing aspects of Himalayan salt to the Grande Spa.

Bringing both Ann and Stewart to Jamaica to see the space and conceptualize the necessary build-out with our project manager and contracted team was integral. This was a big undertaking for Jamaica, and we wanted to understand all necessary aspects. Ann provided phenomenal experiential concepts for the salt lounge guest experience while Stewart provided the underlying functions and engineering support to see the vision through.

This team provided immense support and follow-up — on the ground, over the phone and with back-and-forth emails and documentation. They helped our team understand how to create something brand-new and be proud of the efforts from learning from the creators. It's a very special space and a dream come true. Guests never want to leave.

The showstopper, however, is the Himalayan sea salt halotherapy lounge, a dimly lit, scented room with walls made of tightly packed salt blocks from Pakistan. After 30 minutes in here, guests report that their congestion is gone, their energy level is up and their head space cleared.


Ingrid Middaugh, director of spa and club, Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa Anjali

Spa Anjali is a green spa, and I felt the benefits of the Himalayan salt wall would be beneficial for our guests. I also LOVE the way they make a sauna look and feel — so much more welcoming and comforting.


Eva Castro, owner, A Vital Touch Day Spa

Our spa was the first on the California central coast to start offering this amazing treatment (Himalayan Salt Stone Massage). I love everything about our Saltability negative ion bowl warmer and using the stones to massage and add to our facials.

We just finished a Himalayan warm stone couples massage using your wonderful and beautiful warmer and stones (we wouldn't use any other). They were so happy. We love Saltability.


Kate Morrison, spa director, Spa Ojai at The Ojai Valley Inn

At Spa Ojai we value our partnership with Saltability due to our like-minded emphasis on quality for our guests. Ann worked with us to select the perfect size, texture and shape stones to give our guests the best Himalayan salt massage experience possible. After the stones are used in the treatment, they are offered to the guest a gift for further at-home care, which always results in a WOW! 


Tracy Harper, spa director, Sun Valley Resort

Our team is loving the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage service, and our clients are raving about their experience. It is an amazing service, and we are thrilled to have it on our menu so that our clients can experience its unique benefits. We look forward to adding more services to our menu using the stones and products Saltability has to offer.

Offering CEUs for this modality has provided an amazing learning experience for my team, and they have embraced the opportunity to learn more and add value to their overall guest experience. The Himalayan salt stone service provides a wellness benefit that my team gravitates toward, and they continue to be excited about providing the service to our guests with the education they have received through the course.

Putting our therapists through the salt stone course and adding Himalayan Salt Stone Massage to our menu has added so much value to our guest experience and their overall well-being. The benefits are amazing, and the guests are left with an experience they will never forget. We love everything Saltability and so happy to be a partner with them.


Jessica Johnston, assistant spa director, The West Spa at Oglebay

When we brought on Saltability and upgraded all of our massage rooms, as well as our nail room, I wasn’t sure how the team would adjust to the change. No one likes change, but I knew this would not only be a much-needed benefit for the guests and the team, but it would upgrade the look of our spa. The beautiful glass bowls in each massage room and the manicure domes and bamboo tray in our nail room have really made a stunning change for the eye! Our guests love the way these warm stones go beyond just warming and relaxing their muscles; it sends them into complete relaxation. We pair them with our warm bamboo in a “Sticks and Stones” massage, and it has by far become one of our most popular services. Hands down this has been the most beneficial upgrade we have made to our treatments and the look of our spa. Ann has been very friendly, knowledgeable and compassionate from the first time we spoke. We look forward to working with Saltability for years to come.


Corri Vara, owner, International Day Spa

Replacing our traditional hot stone roasters with the Himalayan salt stone warmer immediately improved the ambiance of our treatment rooms. Our massage therapists love working with the stones because they are always the perfect temperature. Our clients love the warm salt stone treatments, and we are so pleased with the perfect temperature, elegant display and simple disinfecting process. 


Dan Pierotti, vice president of global spa development and operations, Noble House Hotels & Resorts

INNOVATIVE! THERAPEUTIC! ECO-FRIENDLY! AMAZING! Noble House Spas are in the process of transitioning all of their current Sacred Stone Massage units with Saltability’s Himalayan salt stone warmers. This new alternative to hot basalt stone massage is the new way of performing hot stone massage, and the benefits are definitely incomparable to the old way, saving on water, electricity, clean-up time, wonderful health benefits, and not to mention, they look beautiful in our treatment rooms. One of the greatest advantages with Saltability is the retail sell-through with home care, which you don’t have with traditional hot stone massage. A full retail line for massage therapists to be able to sell something that complements their service. Ann has been amazing to work with; her time, support, ideas and generosity are above and beyond! We are more than pleased with the outcome. It’s a terrific partnership!


Nicolette Alex-Sands, manager, SpaTerre, Ocean Key Resort & Spa

I had my first Saltability massage today! It was AMAZING. My skin and muscles felt magnificent afterward, and I also felt very light and at ease. The therapists love working with the stones, and I think that the negative ions are starting to make a difference in the spa – happy team! We all love how easy the stone sets are to clean up, and they look so beautiful. We are so happy that we brought Saltability on board at Spa Terre Ocean Key!


Michael Tompkins, co-chief executive officer, PALM Health

At PALM Health our team of medical, comprehensive and alternative practice providers recognizes the positive trend of salt therapy. We've built a salt inhalation chamber for its health benefits and incorporate Saltability's outstanding products in our spa services and retail sales lines.


Diane Trieste, director, Shankara Ayurveda Spa

I think this stone massage with Himalayan salt is right on the mark. The standard stone massage has gotten a bit stale, and this gives it a whole new start. The benefits of the Himalayan salt are incomparable to others, and there are so many ways the guest can take home some good wellness with the retail opportunities provided by Saltability. This is a treatment that really has some therapeutic benefits, and the client will remember your spa and the quality behind it.


Kendra Littrell, spa director, Shibui Spa

We are really enjoying our salt stone baskets. The treatment and products are features in our specials this month. Our clients and therapists are very excited!


Travis Anderson, Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa

We recently introduced Himalayan salt lamps from Saltability in our nail salon. The visual effect is lovely as they create a warm and soft glow in the room. The clients also share that they feel more grounded and relaxed, which is exactly what we seek in our luxury spa operation. Thanks to our salt lamps, we provide a more authentic and natural environment for our associates and our guests.


Joanna Roche, spa director, The Westmoor Club

Spa directors tasked with finding new therapies that are natural, relevant and offer a point of difference will find Saltability is a great option. We’ve replaced hot stone massage with hot salt stone massage to rave reviews, and the retail sell-through is very strong.

We’re thrilled with our new salt sauna! Thanks to Ann Brown and Saltability for the incredible salt tiles and help in designing the room. Our carpenters were able to design and install the tiles, and the room looks beautiful. We are now able to capture all the respiratory system healing properties of the salt, making the sauna more effective and beautiful.

Katie Castellanos, spa director, Abundant Health Day Spa

We love Saltability Himalayan salt stones! I have worked in the spa industry for 10 years and have never had a treatment room product that was so well received by both the staff and the clients. In addition to the many benefits of incorporating Himalayan salt stones into a massage or treatment, the beautiful aesthetic of the product is undeniable. As soon as a client walks into the treatment room, they notice the beautiful stones, and instantly the conversation begins of what the stones are and how they are used. Also, Saltability's extensive treatment protocols are thorough and easy to follow. I would recommend Saltability to any spa professional looking to expand their spa menu. You won't be disappointed. 


Nate Steere, director of spa and fitness, La Playa Beach & Golf Resort

Saltability products are beautiful to look at and just as nice in the hands of our therapists. They’ve brought an easy-to-use stone alternative into our spa, and since they’re lit by LED, they’re always hot and ready for us to enhance a guest’s massage and capture enhancement revenues. Ann and her team are friendly and responsive, making rollout a breeze.


Charles Castro, assistant spa director, The Spa at Rosen Shingle Creek

These stones are a game changer. From the therapists to the guests, our team has received nothing but excellent feedback.


Lauren Lega, owner, Hand & Stone - Upper St. Claire

What an enthusiastic burst of positive energy Doug Elman, your director of education, was to our spa in Upper St. Clair today for our team! His outstanding instruction to the massage therapy team on Himalayan Salt Stone Massage was exactly what we needed to hear. His practical application of the salt stones will be utilized for all of our clients. Our team has a better understanding from his instruction today, and we are confident this will lead to greater use of the technique and of retail use within our spa. It was a pleasure to spend the day learning with him, and the CE credits were a big bonus for everyone!  

We highly recommend his hands-on instruction to any spa that is looking to increase knowledge and experience with Himalayan salt stones from Saltability.  We truly feel this type of education will lead to greater use of the stones and better outcomes with retail sales. Thank you for an excellent presentation. 


Dawn Page, spa director, The Spa at Cliff House 

The great thing about working with Ann Brown and Saltability is their creativity in developing new treatments and impeccable service that enables them to be a real partner in success and not just a taker of orders.

We chose Saltability hot stones for our seasonal Salt of the Sea series because they provide for an innovative treatment using an ancient ingredient. The development of the seasonal series seemed to happen naturally — it was something that just felt right when you put the warm earthly stones into your hands.


MASSAGE THERAPISTS 

Therese Welch, lead massage therapist, Chuan Spa at the Langham, Chicago

After 10 years massaging, I haven’t felt any other product deliver results like the Himalayan stones do. I love the Saltability line. It’s truly amazing to be able to feel the difference in a client’s connective tissue after use and see how transformed they are afterward.


Eric Jensen, spa services supervisor, Red Mountain Resort

As a massage therapist of more than 10 years, I was very satisfied with the “traditional” basalt stones that I have been using since the beginning of my career. I was very skeptical of these new Himalayan salt stones and how they would stand up to the test of time, but they are incredibly durable and easy to use. I don’t know if it is the minerals in the stone or the fact that negative ions are being released, but I couldn’t believe how long the relief in the muscles lasted. I have been using the Himalayan salt stones regularly for nine months now, and I can honestly say that I never want to give or receive a stone massage any other way.


Shane Bird, director of spa operations, Ska:ná The Spa at Turning Stone

Great job, Ann Marie Brown and Saltability. A spa would be crazy not to take a good long look at upgrading their stone services with Himalayan salt.


Kirra Wilson, health and wellness director, The Hermitage Club

We chose to bring on Saltability to the Spa at The Hermitage Club because it is innovative and an incredibly intentional and therapeutic treatment. Not only do our guest reap the therapeutic benefits from the salts; our therapists do also. They are quick and easy to clean, and they display so beautifully in our serenity room.


Lisa Morales, massage therapist, SoJo Spa Club

I love that Saltability is geared towards drawing on nature's ancient resources to benefit skin and senses.


Margie Ortega, massage therapist, SoJo Spa Club

Aside from the Himalayan salt being a natural air purifier, its health benefits are astounding. Examples are stabilized pH and oxidative stress found in the body. The warmth of the stones allows clients to enter a sedative state as well, making its use a great benefit overall.


Dawn Page, spa manager, The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera

Our spa launched the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage at the start of our busy ski season, and after a short time, it has already become a tremendous success! The beautiful glowing baskets of pink stones in the treatment rooms has become the highlight of our spa. Coming from a massage therapist background, I was confident our therapists would like the treatment; however, I never expected the excitement from my staff when they see that one has booked on their schedule. Their enthusiasm has resulted in the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage as our no. 1 selling body treatment, No. 1 add-on enhancement, as well as a significant increase in retail sales from therapist recommendations. Not only is it a hit with our staff, but also guests of the spa. They use words to describe their experience from the treatment as “incredible,” “so much better than the ‘regular’ hot stone massage” and “can’t remember when I felt this great."

Bringing Saltability into our spa has positively impacted us in more ways than I could have imagined. And from the very start, Ann has provided timely and courteous support to help bring on this new treatment to our spa.


Dinora Villarrea, lead massage therapist, The Phoenician, A Luxury Collection Resort

I liked the class because it taught me new techniques in giving Saltability massages. It will also be very helpful for my career. Thank you so much for the amazing class!


Emily Egan, licensed massage therapist, The Salon by InStyle Inside JCPenny

The CEU course is such an innovative service to offer in massage. I love decorating my massage room with the lamps; they have a beautiful ambiance to them and also have wonderful properties. Wouldn't it be awesome to go inside a salt mine? All that positive energy surrounding you. I'm lucky, though, because I get to work with the stones and provide that positive energy to both the client and myself. Also, the properties involved in the stones and salt are so essential to our bodies — I never realized it was so beneficial until I took the class. I would love to incorporate the Sole method with my clients as well. Thank you so much, Saltability, for offering this class! I'm lucky I stumbled upon it. Thank you for responding to my messages in a timely manner, too. I'm glad you all are so personable. It makes me feel like what I have to say is important. You find a lot of websites or people in general that don't provide that type of personable service, which is a crucial factor to our profession. You guys are an all-around delight to work with.

Kelly Joyce, licensed massage therapist, Hand & Stone (Bedford, NH) / owner, BodyWorkz The Mind

I loved the certification course!! Definitely learned a lot! Especially incorporating the difference meridian/source points into the massage! Have gotten incredible feedback from clients just using the stone. They love them.


Tina Hatzenbueler, licensed massage therapist, Lifetime Fitness

I work at Lifetime Fitness in Garland, Texas. We are very excited about including Himalayan salt stones in our service offerings. Our spa received the bowls in April and offer them as a treatment add-on. Four of my clients have chosen the add-on after I explained the benefits of Himalayan salt combined with heat. The results have surprised everyone! There is a different quality to the heat penetration of the salt stones when compared to normal river rock stones. Muscle tension and knots yield more quickly and the effects last longer. This must be due to the action of the negative ions in the salt. The clean up afterward is two minutes with the disinfectant spray, and back into the bowl ready in time for the next client. We just love them.


Tya Paulus, lead therapist, The West Spa

When my manager talked about bringing Saltability into the spa, there was some resistance from my massage team. Change is extremely hard for our team, but once we did, it was no time until they all fell in love with them. They are so cost effective and efficient to clean and a true time management saver in turnover of the treatment rooms. 

Since changing to the pink Himalayan stone, the overall energy here at the West Spa has improved. It has become more balanced overall with the staff and clients. Our clients' feedback is incredible, too. They say they totally feel more relaxed with the pink Himalayan stones versus the basalt stones. And it truly softens their skin and never seems too hot for them. Clients are so impressed with them; they ask if we sell them all the time. Then that opens up the conversation to talk about the benefits of having pink Himalayan salt in their daily lives and how it can help them in several ways. 

Looking back to before Saltability, here at the West Spa, seems like we were in the stone ages lol. I have been a lead therapist here at the West Spa for over 10 years, and I truly never thought I would work with anything but the basalt stone. I’m truly grateful for my manager! She had the foresight and knowledge to be on the cutting edge of the spa industry and bring Saltability to our spa, and it has improved the West Spa tenfold!!!! 


Jinny Badinger, lead therapist, Paris Parker Salons and Spas

I love the Saltability Himalayan salt stones — these are really cool! They heat very quickly and hold heat for a long time, which makes them an easy solution to the hot stone massage issue of needing an hour to prepare hot stones. Now, people can book hot stone massages in the moment. Plus, I love that they save water, and I love the idea of having an enhancement menu so they can be used for more than just salt stone massage. We could give them to the nail techs and have them use them as an enhancement for their services as well as for aesthetics! There are so many ideas for how they can be used to enhance or build on other services.

I recently used the salt stones on a very regular client of mine for the first time. He’s a surgeon and has a strong Western medicine mentality, and he’s very blunt that he doesn’t like change. At the end of every massage, I use two hot stones on the back to finish. This time, I told him I was going to use the salt stones instead to see what he thought. As soon as the treatment was over, he said, “I really like those. I feel really relaxed. That was great!” That was huge coming from him! He said he preferred them to the traditional hot stones because of their texture and overall feel.

I feel so confident moving forward with these salt stones. I love them — and so do my clients!


Eric Stephenson, director of education, iMassage, Inc.

Since 2002, I have trained over a thousand massage therapists in traditional basalt hot stone massage. I’m always surprised at how few of them actually offer it in their practices, frequently citing lengthy prep and clean-up work as too laborious. Our approach at Saltability eliminates this pain point, and what therapists love is a simple, effective approach to combine heat with the benefits of Himalayan salt stones for their clients and guests.

I fell in love with hot stone massage in the '90s, so much so that I traveled to Iceland to get my own stones. I have traded in my basalt for Himalayan salt stones. In my opinion, this approach is much more than a trend; it’s the future of stone massage. 


Shaw Coté, spa treatment manager, Cavallo Point

Our staff LOVES working with the stones. The timers make a huge difference. We’re able to leave them on all day to ionize the rooms and be beautiful! I can’t tell you how happy I am to have found you at ISPA!


Kimberly DiVico, spa manager, Auberge Resorts

Both our guests and therapists love the new offering!


Cecelia Neylon, Heart & Sole Reflexology

I am a reflexologist, and when I am working on a client's hands and feet, I put warm salt stones on the back of the neck and, if they want, on their lower back. Also, if I feel they need extra work on their reflexes, I use the stones to work their reflexes. My clients can also hold them. It makes for an excellent one hour.


Arlena Bessard, licensed massage therapist, Heavenly Hands Massage and Bodywork 

As a spa worker for nearly 10 years of my career, I'd only used the basalt stones typically used. After striking out on my own and being able to choose what I wanted, I added the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage to my menu. Longtime clients noticed an immediate difference between how they felt afterwards with the new stones as opposed to the basalt stones. Since then, I've seen many clients absolutely zone out during this service and purchase gift certificates for it with friends and family so they could share the experience! They're in love; thank you, Ann! 


Laura FitzSimmons, owner, Prairie Star Wellness

Proper body mechanics is important to me as an RN and certified lymphatic therapist. I love working with Saltability Himalayan Salt Stones as the stones fit well into my palms for maximum comfort for my wrists and provide benefit to my clients receiving the work. In my practice, I work with many oncology and plastic surgery post-operative clients who need effective scar tissue work. Using the warm stones allows me work at the correct pressure without irritating and inflaming my own wrists and forearms. Thank you, Saltability, for your quality products! 


Janet Richards, Bodies on the Move

I just want to tell you how thrilled I am to be using your stones on my clients. I have had great success with everyone I have touched with these stones. Some of my clients have psoriasis and the causes are from various things. The stones have helped reduce the inflammation and itching. I will actually have the client hold the stone and rub the area that is bothering them — mostly the arms and hands. I have also found that with some of my clients who don’t have a skin issue feel more relaxed after the massage. Many have asked where to buy the stones for at home use. This is a great, natural product and I will continue to highly recommend it to others. One other thing, I don’t wear deodorant anymore, the stones have eliminated my body odors with use in the shower as well. Love this product and thank you for bringing it to all of us.


Patti Bartell Marable, The Spa at the Samoset Resort, Rockport Maine

One of my therapists, Korin, said today, "Saltability Stone Massage is the best thing we ever did for this spa."


SPA INDUSTRY

Sandra Sadowski, director of operations, ESPA

Saltability provides innovative, sustainable, healing salt stones and accessories to the spa and wellness world. Their uncompromised customer service, reliability and attention to detail with each new spa and existing spa they work with and support has made them my company of choice for salt stone massage, manicure and pedicure enhancements and healthy, air purifying décor. Ann and her team continue to grow Saltability offerings, and I can only look forward to what is next for this amazing company.


Philippe Therene, founder and spa accounts manager, SpaEquip

At SpaEquip we are seeing a surge in clients' requests for Himalayan Salt products such as salt massage stone therapy and salt rooms. By working with Ann Brown and her team at Saltability, we are able to provide our customers with the best available products they need to introduce these wonderful therapies to their clients.


Julie Keller, editor-in-chief, American Spa

One of the most notable trends we are seeing this year is salt, most notably Himalayan salt. One of the most interesting companies I've seen incorporating it is Saltability. The massage stones, in particular, seem to truly be making an impact with spas and adding another layer of healing to services that incorporate them.


Blake Feeney, Feeney & Co. Spa Consulting

I think the idea of an eco-friendly warmer and using Himalayan salt stones, with all their benefits, is really innovative and something the spa industry has needed for some time. I have to say I really like the sauna conversion kits that takes a traditional sauna, and with a few steps, makes it a Himalayan salt sauna that emits negative ions that have multiple benefits.


Mia Kyricos, chief brand officer, Spafinder Wellness Inc., and founder, Kyricos & Associates

Saltability is one of the most impressive innovations I’ve seen in our industry in a long time. The treatments and products have been developed with the health of guests and therapists in mind, not to mention the philanthropic and environmental sensibilities of the company. Kudos to industry veteran, Ann Brown, and the team at Saltability for bringing such a compelling offering to market. Well done!


Angela Searle, senior director of training and quality assurance, One Spa World, LLC (formerly Onboard Spa by Steiner)

It’s our social responsibility to safeguard our earth. With more than 200 spas at sea and on land, sustainability is at the forefront of our company culture and service offerings. We are introducing Saltability’s Himalayan salt stones as an eco-friendly and energy conserving approach to stone therapy. We cannot get through a day without having an impact on our environment. This one spa change can make a world of difference.
