Saltability was created by Ann Brown, former  Director of the luxurious Spa Shiki, one of the Midwest’s largest resort spas located at the Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake Ozark, Missouri, and ranked as “One of the Top 100 Spas” by Spas of America.

Saltability is designed to educate and empower both the general public and the healing community about this Himalayan salt, a pure crystal-like, salt rich in 84 naturally occurring minerals and elements, that is carefully hand-chipped and extracted—using socially, environmentally responsible manufacturing practicesfrom the depths of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan.

The benefits derived are numerous, including balancing the central nervous system and improved sleep. And when used in combination with specialized massage techniques, practitioners can help clients achieve optimum health, healing, and balance that is more profound than using traditional basalt stones.

And Saltability isn’t limited to Spa Shiki. Spas across the country, including such well-known spas as Red Mountain Resort in Utah to the Greenbrier in West Virginia), are offering Saltability’s Himalayan Salt Stone Massage and other services and products
