How to Add Profit and Satisfaction with Hydration

It is essential for a client to hydrate after a massage, and should always be recommended. Every time I've gotten a spa treatment, I have always been handed a glass of water.

Why is this?

“Relaxing the muscles with massage helps to open these circulatory pathways, directing metabolites toward the kidneys. Hydration after a massage helps the kidneys to flush and eliminate this waste.” (Barbara Close, founder, and CEO of Naturopathica)

It's the little details that can set your business apart from others. Stand out in a crowd by trying these simple suggestions-

Square Glass Flavor Infusion Beverage Dispenser / 3 Gallons 
This attractive 3 Gallon Square Glass Infusion Jar is perfect for relaxation rooms! Ideal for tea bags, limes, lemons, cucumbers, oranges, etc. to infuse into cold water.

"Fruit, Herb and Flower Infusions can turn
the ordinary into the extraordinary!"

VitaJuwel Gem Water Oval Glass Water Decanter / 1.5 Liters paired with VitaJuwel Gem Water Gemstone Crystal Infuser Wand

Get one of our VitaJuwel decanters in addition to your original VitaJuwel vial for the full gem water experience right from the start! Our elegant decanters are specially designed to hold a generous 50 oz. and complement our vials in form and size. The base of the decanter is rounded on its inside and, thus, helps prevent your vial from touching the sides of the decanter.

VitaJuwel is the most hygienic and efficient method to prepare gem water. And it's easy! Just place a VitaJuwel gem vial in drinking water for 7-10 minutes and enjoy gemwater, the true elixir of life! Using gems to vitalize water is an age-old tradition, dating back to ancient Greece and medieval times. Gems have the ability to store an energy that inspirits the surrounding drinking water, making it more lively and enjoyable. This can even be tasted by sensual water lovers! The gems don't have to physically contact the water. The glass vial acts like a natural prism for the crystal's radiant energy. Like in the natural cycle of water, with VitaJuwel the natural element stone regenerates the natural element water.

Pink Himalayan Salt

Pink Himalayan Salt is so popular right now, and Pure Spa Direct has you covered with various versions of this beautiful and trendy mineral! Himalayan Salt  can be used in many treatments from massage, salt therapy, and even decor!


Himalayan Salt Stone Massage™ is an innovative healing technique using warm salt crystal stones to ground and balance the body's electromagnetic field, central nervous system and meridians. Salt crystals from an ancient primal sea beneath the Himalayan Mountains are hand-carved into massage stones that gently soothe away an accumulation of stress, tension and pollutants. Feel the energy of the 250 million year old mineral salt as you enjoy a gentle massage with these crystal salt stones. Stones may vary in color and size. For massage can be used with a small amount of jojoba oil or coconut oil.




This pink salt gets its color from the minerals trapped within the salt's crystalline structure. These minerals not only grant this salt its unique color but are easily dissolved; adding essential minerals and trace elements found in nature to your treatments. These colorful crystal salts help to heal aches, pains, and skin irritations.

AG Naturals ingredients should be used for your custom topical treatments only and not ingested.





White Himalayan salt is rarer than other color varieties of salt lamps, but it’s just as beautiful. Natural wood base. CSA/UL compliant. Includes 6' long cord set and light bulb. 4.5”-5” H






Himalayan Salt has long been acclaimed for its unique healing properties. TouchAmerica's Himalayan Salt Frame makes it easy to add this healing feature to a home, office or wellness facility. This innovative system is ideal for adding to a sauna where dry heat activates the Himalayan salt blocks, transforming them into ionizers. Wellness is enhanced with an abundance of ions that support the respiratory and immune systems. Himalayan Salt is beautiful, especially when lit. Our frames come with an LED rope light to backlight the salt and add beauty to its natural healing properties. We designed our Himalayan Salt Frame system to be easy to install, requiring no special tools or skills.

Product Of The Week: Alaskan Glacial Mud

Happy Friday!

This week, I'd like to spotlight Raw Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud.

Mud is always in style in this industry, from facials masks to body wraps. As a massage therapist, after a few years in I decided to give offering various mud add-ons a shot. As a mobile therapist at the time, I thought I was nuts for just the thought of mobile mud! I was able to make it work for me, and my client response surprised the heck out of me! All of them wanted to try it. After the trial run, some alternated their massages with mud treatments.

Mud works.

Alaska Glacial mud works. Containing more than 60 nourishing major and trace elements to promote healthy skin cell regeneration, you may find clients requesting mud packages.

Raw Alaskan Glacial. The name says it all.
Straight from the Copper River Delta in Alaska, enriched with a special combination of certified organic and wildcrafted botanical extracts from the Pacific Northwest that are chosen for their moisturizing, skin-softening, and anti-aging and immunoprotective properties. Natural as natural gets.

Are your clients hesitant on mud treatments due to that lovely, mud smell?  You can choose vanilla lavender and lavender peppermint. The slight tingle from the peppermint feels amazing, in my opinion!

Available in back bar sizes in both premixed and powder, as well as a beautiful line of retail items.

If you're not ready to jump into the mud just yet, retailing is a great way to talk to your clients and gauge their response to mud.

See you next Friday for another product of the week!

Domestic Violence Awareness and Salon Professionals - What You Should Know

According to Behindthechair.com, in 2016, Illinois passed legislation that requires all salon professionals to complete 1-hour training to learn how to spot domestic violence and sexual assault, and since then, 14 additional states have introduced or passed similar legislation.

The idea is that there is a very unique relationship between salon professionals and their clients, due to the personal nature of the services being performed, and many clients open up to their stylists about a variety of things in their lives. Salon professionals hold a unique standing, as they aren't a personal friend or family, but they aren't a complete stranger, either - especially if the client has been seeing the same stylist regularly. 

The legislation varies in each location in the amount of training, as well as when the training is required, but they tend to emphasize for salon professionals to be capable of providing resources as necessary, and in many places, local professional groups have been involved in the writing of legislation to ensure the salon professionals are protected from liability.

Outside of location-specific legislation, the National Cosmetology Association - now the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) - has been running the Cut It Out program nationwide since 2003. They have since trained hundreds of salon professionals in how to properly recognize signs of abuse and safely refer victims to help. 



In 2000, the National Violence Against Women released a survey based on results found in the US:

  • 4.8 million women each year experience physical assaults and rapes by an intimate partner.
  • 2.9 million men each year experience physical assaults by an intimate partner.
  • 2 of 3 women who reported being raped, physically assaulted, or stalked since age 18 were victimized by an intimate partner or a date.
  • 1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men experience an attempted or completed rape at some time in their lives.
  • More than half of all rapes of females occur before age 18; of these, 22% occur before age 12.
Professionals within the beauty industry have a real opportunity to make an impact in the fight against domestic violence!

Cold Season Help... for Retail

Have you heard about Farmaesthetics yet?

I cannot say enough about this brand! The client response is phenomenal!
Trade the preservatives, dyes, and fake fragrances for wholesome herbs, flowers, grains, and oils. Farmaesthetics professional and retail natural skin care incorporate the 100% pure, organic elements your clients crave and leave out the artificial ingredients for a refreshing change. Natural and effective skin care based on herbal traditions.

Easy to add to your menu, with a manageable number of products. Beautiful apothecary looks for retail boutiques.

Farmaesthetics is making the perfect elixir for this season and you can retail it!

Farmaesthetics Vapor Bath Elixir / 4 oz.
Farmaesthetics Vapor Bath Elixir is "a spa in a bottle", as it has been called, this vibrant green Vapor Bath Elixir is full of essential oils to warm the body and relax the mind. This chlorophyll-infused preparation will soften, purify, and deodorize the skin, while vaporous essential oils release to open congestion and relax tight or achy muscles. Use as a deep herbal soak to revitalize the entire system.

WHAT the Key Ingredients are and WHY they work
  • Chlorophyll: Known as liquid sunshine, liquid chlorophyll is nontoxic and soothing to body tissues when applied in an external bath.
  • Menthol: A soothing compound derived from the peppermint plant. If used in small amounts, menthol generates a cool heat, activated by the friction of "rubbing". 
  • Clove Essential Oil: Long used to treat fungal infections, the kind that impact nail beds, cuticles, and feet, clove is an antibacterial as well. It has powerful local antiseptic and mild anesthetic actions was known as a decongestant and inhalation for colds. It is less known but highly valued for its bactericidal and antiviral action. It not only relieves nasal congestion but also is known to actually inhibit the proliferation of the cold virus. In massage, it is relieving to muscular aches and pains.
  • Lavender Essential Oil: It stimulates and rejuvenates the skin and restores the skin's natural balance in oil production. It also stimulates sore, exhausted muscles and soothes the nerves, while acting as an aromatic astringent.
  • Geranium Essential Oil: Oil derived from the geranium flower. Like virtually all the flower oils, it is an antidepressant and antiseptic and is valued for its astringent and antiseptic properties. 
  • White Camphor Essential Oil: Known for its value in treating colds, chills, and inflammatory complaints, it relieves skin irritation. In cases of nervous excitement, it has a soothing and quieting result
  • Glutamate (aclyglutamate): A delicate cleansing agent derived from natural sugar cane; adds the slip to the preparations as well as the gentle action of removing excess oil. 
  • Vegetable Glycerin: Used as a humectant, it actually attracts moisture from the air and binds it to the skin's surface. It also provides a protective barrier on the skin so as to retain its moisture.

Farmaesthetics Deep Lavender Rub / 4 oz.
Voted "Favorite Product" by Spa Magazine beauty editors and "Best in New England" by Yankee Magazine, this herbal ode to Vicks® Vapo Rub® is a deep comfort rub that utilizes the heat-producing essential oils of ginger, rosemary, and eucalyptus to relax and release upper respiratory tightness due to colds, allergies, stress, or asthma. It is also an excellent lineament for stiff or strained muscles due to overexertion or inactivity (both extremes can yield sore muscles). Deep Lavender Rub is a powerful preparation that is gentle enough for a child.

Purpose:
Deep Heat Comfort Rub for relieving upper respiratory tightness due to colds or allergies. Apply to chest or neck area, then cover with a warm towel to super-charge effects of the essential oils and herbs, to relax tension and aid in a good night's sleep.

Sinus Relief by opening nasal passages. As essential vapors are released and inhaled, there is an "opening" of the sinuses, helping relieve stuffiness and easing mental tension and headache. The releasing heat of our herbal rub will help increase circulation and blood flow to the face, and this is excellent for optimizing a healthy complexion.

Muscular Massage is greatly enhanced by using Deep Lavender Rub, not only for the aroma therapeutic qualities of Ginger, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Rosemary, but also for their ability to penetrate muscle tissue and relax tension from a range of conditions like flu, illness, or sports.

Hand and Foot Treatments are all the better when enhanced with Deep Lavender Rub. Whether its a hand and foot massage you give yourself at the end of a long day or one administered to someone in need of TLC, applying a small amount of Deep Lavender Rub with massage, to soles and palms, will super-charge the healing benefits of the treatment. (Did you know that the soles of the feet and palms are the most vulnerable areas of the body for taking in herbal constituents?) Wrapping hands or feet in warm towels after application, will further soften skin and maximize the relaxation response.

Key Ingredients:
  • Sweet Almond: It stimulates and rejuvenates the skin and restores the skin's natural balance in oil production. It also stimulates sore, exhausted muscles and soothes the nerves, while acting as an aromatic astringent.
  • Ginger Essential Oil: One of the best of the heat producing essential oils - known to stimulate and increase circulation.
  • Eucalyptus Essential Oil: Best known as a decongestant and inhalation for colds. It is less known but highly valued for its bactericidal and antiviral action. 
  • Rosemary Essential Oil: Another of the heat producing oils, chosen for its ability to stimulate the nervous system and to increase circulation when used in conjunction with massage. Used in an upper body massage or in steam inhalation, the oil has the ability to "clear the head". 
  • Peppermint Essential Oil: Cools the skin. Relieves the discomforts of heat rash. Reduces the itch and sting of insect bites. 
Incorporate into your treatments and retail for fall and winter!

The Healing Power of Seaweed

Why you should use a seaweed wrap?

It may look gross, but seaweed has some real benefits.

Want to know more? Let me explain!

It DETOXIFIES! During the process, heat is essential, whether the wrap is warmed up or heating elements are added. The sweating process helps the body eliminate impurities. These are brought to the surface of the skin and rinsed away.

It REMOVES DEAD SKIN! Dead skin prevents the body from absorbing moisture. So besides removing toxins, dead skin is loosened. This allows the benefits of the seaweed to be absorbed (like proteins, vitamins, minerals) and add moisture to the skin.

It IMPROVES SKIN ELASTICITY AND REGENERATION! Seaweed is chock full of antioxidants which help to rebuild the elasticity of the skin, produces collagen, regenerates damaged skin and increases blood flow.

It REDUCES CELLULITE AND IMPROVES BODY CONTOURING! Seaweed aids in shaping excess skin, cellulite, and stretch marks, due to the diffusion of vitamins and minerals.

We have everything you need in this kit
Slimming Seaweed Body Wrap Treatment Kit
Slimming Seaweed Body Wrap Kit

Kit Includes:
  • Fitted Plastic Table Cover (1)
  • Wool Woven Blanket 62" x 80" (1)

  • Plastic Wrap Sheeting 9' x 12' (6)
  • Lotus Touch Hydrating Lotion (1 gallon)
  • Large Rubber Mixing Bowl 4.75" (1)
  • Body Brush 3" (1)
  • Lotus Touch Seaweed Gel (1 gallon)
Want to incorporate seaweed in other ways? 

Try the gel for wraps! No mess, great results. This seaweed gel can be easily removed with moist towels...no shower needed! Ready to use! No blending required! 

For facial treatments incorporate seaweed by using this modeling mask. This treatment helps heal blemishes, prevent breakouts, and keeps skin shine-free. It is a non-drying formula that will not irritate while going deep into the skin to purge to unclog pores and rid skin of excess oil. It nourishes the skin with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to balance skin moisture levels.

Pure Spa Direct just picked up some amazing new masks that are perfect for retail - and the line includes a Charcoal Mask!

With just one 30-minute application, you will see improved elasticity, texture and overall appearance of the face. Activated by body heat, the nutrients stored in each flexible FACE by ToGoSpa™ gel pad go to work. ToGoSpa™ FACE contains No Dyes and No Parabens. 7 Packs of 3 Masks = 21 Masks total. Can be used for professional treatments or sold retail for home use.

Massage On The Go?

Many of the mobile LMT's I've spoken with, have all had one major thing in common - ease of transport. I used to pop my table in the back of my car along with a bag full of linens, lotion, music, clock and more. I wanted to be sure I had everything my room had (minus the hot towel cabi!) to give the best possible on site table massage. The thing I hear the MOST, is how they need an easy to transport stool.

This is where my favorite manufacturer of massage products, Earthlite, comes in with the perfect solution. The Folding Massage Stool to match your table. Easy to transport and as durable as any Earthlite table or chair. All for under $100!

No more kneeling, squatting or asking clients for something to sit on!
