Cupping Therapy

If you're considering adding another alternative treatment to your business, the ancient art of Cupping Therapy is one that has been gaining popularity and recognition within the past year or so.

What exactly is cupping?!

Cupping is a form of alternative therapy in which cups are placed on the skin, particularly the back, or other areas of pain to create suction. It is actually an ancient form of healing that dates all the way back to Egyptian, Chinese, as well as Middle Eastern cultures. Although it's not too widely recognized in our Western Culture yet, it is definitely a therapy that is gaining more and more popularity within this year alone! It is especially beneficial to your clients who are looking for ways to heal pain naturally, without any use of medication.

How does it work?!

There are actually three types of cupping that are commonly practiced:

Dry Cupping
Dry cupping uses only the suction of the cups for treatment purposes. The suction creates a small amount of pressure in the back, which helps to stabilize blood flow which in turn, is said to believe promote the healing of various aliments.  

Wet Cupping
During wet cupping, a suction is created using a cup that is left in place for about three minutes. The cup is then removed and then a small scalpel is used to make superficial skin incisions. A very minute quantity of blood is then drawn out. The reason being is that the toxins in the body are drawn out from the blood.

Fire Cupping
Fire Cupping is when heat is applied to the cups to maximize blood circulation. By adding fire to the inside of the cup, oxygen is removed and there is a high pressure within the suction cup.



This treatment offers a variety of benefits for your clients.

The British Cupping Society says cupping therapy can treat a variety of conditions. This has not been backed up by studies, however, according to WebMD, cupping therapy could potentially be used to treat*:

- Blood disorders such as anemia and hemophilia
- Rheumatic diseases such as arthritis and fibromyalgia
- Fertility and gynecological disorders
- Skin problems such as eczema and acne
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Migraine
- Anxiety and depression
- Bronchial congestion caused by allergies and asthma
- Varicose veins

All That Glitters Isn't Just Gold!

We love getting in new products here at Pure Spa Direct. Our latest addition, which is a personal favorite of mine, is the  Cailyn Carnival Glitter! Who doesn't love anything that sparkles?! and the best part is that it doesn't just come in gold! Check out the variety of colors from this newly added line below:

Your customer will love this iridescent glitz they can add on to their makeup routine. But it's just glitter.. in a little jar, you ask, right? What can you do with it?!
What can't you do with it is the bigger question. This glitter can be applied to your customers eyes, lips, nails, and you can even mix it into your favorite lotion as a body shimmer! See exactly what I mean below..

Eyes

Have your customers use our Cailyn Stick It eye applicator over their eyes just before applying their favorite eye shadow. Then dab some glitter on top, and their eye makeup is good to last all night! This stick is also great for the areas around the eyes for that extra sparkle. Customers can sprinkle some glitter on top of their favorite mascara, and they'll be sure to shine.

Lips
Your customers will love adding our glitter on top of their favorite lipstick! It's a fun way to spice up any dull or muted lip shade! We have a variety of shades from Cailyn you can offer your customers which will complement the different shades of glitter. Click here to see!

Nails

Have your customers turn a common clear or muted nail polish into a custom made lacquer shade! Take any nail polish your client wants, throw some glitter on it, and you have a glittery, custom-made nail polish! The Cailyn glitter works great to enhance any manicure treatment!

Body

Do your customers have a favorite body lotion that they can't live without? Encourage them to incorporate this glitter into their body lotion if they're looking for a subtle glow for an evening out on the town! Just mix in a dab of glitter to a few drops of lotion, and they're good to go! The glitter is great for the face as well.

Roll Your Way To Comfort!

I've talked to many clients over the years about comfort for themselves and their employees. While client comfort is #1 on every list, self care should not be taken lightly!  If you or your employees don't take care of yourselves, you won't be of much good to your clients! Over time, bad posture, bad seats/stools can take a toll making it difficult to work. Avoiding loss of productivity (due to injury or client dissatisfaction with their technician who may be hurting from sitting on a uncomfortable seat for 8 hours every day!) is a priority for all.

Recently, I've had a few client's looking for more comfortable pedicure carts, something different than anything they are used to. I love when client's call looking for a solution, we are always adding new products so I was super excited when we added the Pedi-Assist Complete Rolling Storage with Padded Seat, Back Rest, Adjustable Foot Rest, and Foot Bath Platform by SalonTuff. This thing, rocks!

Take a look at it and you'll see why! It has storage, a spot for a pedicure bowl, an adjustable foot rest, and my favorite part....a padded seat and backrest! I call this the back saving pedi cart for that reason. Comfort and functionality - a
perfect duo!

Music To Your Ears!

Are you or your employees getting tired of the music in your business or treatment rooms? If so, chances are your client's may be as well, especially your regulars!

While the music may be amazing and relaxing, clients may grow tired of it. I used to receive massages weekly, and for three months, they had the same cd playing. I knew it inside and out - how each song started and what was coming next. Some clients may not notice but for the ones who do, it can be a bit annoying.

Here are some recently added music selections we just added to keep your music collection fresh and new! Your clients and your employees will appreciate new tunes! As a bonus, you can also retail these to your clients!


Prescriptive Music Vibe Collection Prepack Display - 60 CD's for Retail + 4 FREE CDs to play in Your Retail Boutique

Ancient Healing with Ayurveda

Are you looking to intrigue your clients by adding a brand new service to your spa? One that enriches the mind and brings emotional balance? How about one that dates back nearly 5,000 years ago?!

Incorporate the ritualistic healing of Shirodhara into your spa, which stems from Ayurveda, an ancient natural healing process from India. Here at Pure Spa Direct, we offer a plethora of products from Ajara Ayurvedic Beauty to help you facilitate this treatment!

What exactly IS Shirodhara?

Shirodhara is a form of therapy that involves gently pouring various liquids over the forehead for relaxation purposes. Think of it as a massage for the mind! The term actually stems from the sanskirt words shiro, which means head and dhara, which means flow. Aside from completely relaxing your client, this therapeutic process is also said to rejuvenate the face, as well as relieve anxiety, depression, and insomnia through natural serotonin, dopamine, and melatonin release. It can also help synchronize alpha brain waves, enhancing blood circulation to the brain to improve mental clarity. Now that's my type of treatment!

And how is this all even possible?! Take a look below at our various Ayurveda products and see how they work:



To get started, check out the Copper Shirodhara Stand, which comes complete with everything you need to introduce your spa to this new treatment! This is the traditional system for giving a shirodhara. Fully hands on, the flow of oil comes from the copper pot, onto the person's third eye, down the hair and vinyl strip, and into the warming pan, where the flow continues with the shirodhara therapist re-pouring the warmed oil back into the copper vessel. While this method requires skill and an ability to quiet one's own mind, it is the most energetically positive way to give a shirodhara treatment.
This treatment requires oil, so to get started, this all natural Shirodhara Oil is your best bet. The natural conditioners from organic sesame and sunflower oil, as well as several herbs to calm the senses, make this oil perfect for a deeply soothing treatment.
To complete your treatment, you are definitely going to need a pair of these gloves! These Raw Silk Garshana Gloves are washable and reusable, and come in a handy carrying pouch. Perfect for your treatment!
Is your spa completely brand new to this treatment? Educate your workers on this ancient healing method with this informative Ayurvedic Spa Treatments DVD. It is great for teaching your technicians on how to evaluate their clients and perform a variety of Ayurvedic treatments!

Forget The Magic Lamp....The New Knot Genie Makes Wishes Come True!

So the title isn't all that clever but the new Knot Genie Detangling Brushes make up for the cleverness!

These little gems have varying teeth lengths to ensure that all tangles/knots get touched---even those stubborn ones on the underside!

Lots of colors to choose from and even the teeny genie!

Take a look at all options that your clients may love!

The Knot Genie Detangling Brush is designed with a unique bristle pattern that gently unravels knots. No matter the hair type—thick, thin, curly, wavy, straight, multi-cultural, synthetic, extensions, wigs, wet or dry—if it’s knotted, this brush will detangle it. Each brush is packaged in a retail box with hang tag.

The magic trick behind the Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ is one we are happy to reveal. It all has to do with the different lengths of teeth on the brush. When brushing, they bend just right, to gently untangle the hair. And because of this lack of stress, the hair's cuticle stays unharmed… revealing the smoothest, shiniest hair you've ever seen.

Handles like a dream. The fact that The Knot Genie isn't like traditional hair brushes goes way beyond the bristle side. Its unique cloud-shaped top fits the palm nicely, whether you're right or left handed. Which means it feels more like an extension of your hand than a grooming tool. And also means the brushing process is far more comfortable, gentle, and most importantly, done quickly. Voila!

You have most likely heard of this herb, but what's all the rage about?!.. and yes, we are referring to the legal kind!

Hemp seed oil has been all the rage lately. It is one of the newest seeds to infiltrate the organic and all-natural market. Let's face it...more and more clients are looking for alternative treatments, especially organic and all-natural products. Add variety to your spa or salon with this earthy seed!

What is exactly is hemp?!

Technically speaking, hemp is a seed which can also be cold-pressed to form an oil. Hemp oil is a highly nutritious oil, featuring the same omega-6 to omega-3 balance the human body requires. Due to its high concentrate of fatty acids, hemp oil is excellent for use in almost any beauty care product, including creams, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, lip balms, and more.

And how exactly does all of this benefit your clients?!

Hemp seed oil is amazing for healthy skin, nails, and hair because of its high nutritional value, as well as abundance in vitamin E, which is also essential for skin, nail, and hair health. Hemp also contains high amounts of zinc, another mineral that helps provide that natural, healthy glowing skin and hair!

Balancing one's chakra can be a healing experience for your client, and a new addition to liven up and literally get the energy flowing within your spa!

You might have heard of the word, but what is exactly IS a chakra?!


Literally speaking, the name chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word "wheel" or "turning," but in the yogic context, a better translation of the word is 'vortex or whirlpool.'* They are energy centers that, collectively, make up the energetic system of your body that affects emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual health.  It is important to keep the flow of these energies balanced and unblocked to have more of an inner peace with yourself in all aspects of life!


There are 7 known chakras, each represented with a color:**

Violet
The crown chakra at the top of the head linked to spiritual power

Indigo
The mid-brow chakra associated with the 'third eye' and intuition

Blue
The throat chakra linked to inspiration

Green
The heart chakra located mid-chest linked to the will and feeling

Yellow
The solar chakra located at the navel and linked to the mind

Orange
The spleen chakra located in the lower abdomen linked with digestion and sociability

Red
