“Doug’s compassion and desire to serve others, plus his passion for education, create a natural blend for him into our team, and we are elated for him to serve as the director of education for Saltability,” said Saltability founder Ann Brown. “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.”

 “I fell in love with the salt stones immediately,” said Elman. “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.”
