It's all about the details. It's freezing in New York and all I can think about is being warm and cozy! What are you doing to set your business apart from your competitors?

Here are some simple, cost-effective ways to customize your services for winter

Copper Pedicure Bowl - Hand Hammered 
Offer a warm foot soak before, after, or during a treatment. Infuse the water with essential oils and

Offer an upgraded service with Hot Massage Stones - 45 Stone Holistic Facial Package With Heater. The perfect add-on to a massage, facial, pedicure, manicure, and much more!
For centuries, basalt hot stones have been used for massage to remove stress, induce relaxation, and promote well-being. For optimum results, heat stones to a temperature of 125°F to 150°F using our specially designed hot stone heater. Once hot, stones will retain their temperatures for up to 45 minutes.

Soothe aching muscles by adding Sacred Earth Botanicals Massage Lotion - Warming.
Another high-quality product from SacredEarth Botanicals. This warming massage lotion uses organic cinnamon oil and organic menthol crystals to create a gentle heating sensation. It is excellent for soothing achy muscles and helping to facilitate blood flow. It can be used during the course of a massage or as a spot treatment.

Flu And You!

The last few weeks, the majority of people I've spoken with have all had the flu. It's widespread and hitting hard.

Is your business ready to help protect staff and clients? Have extra hand sanitizer bottles placed in every room, have some for retail, keep a bottle at the front desk. Be sure to have plenty of disinfectant wipes, disinfectants, gloves and face masks if needed!


Taking Lashes to New Heights!

Unbelievably popular last week was the Vlash Boost Lash Lift Kit. The blizzard in New York didn't stop this shipping guy from sending out dozens and dozens of these kits!

New Year, New Signatures!

While many of your clients may be coming in for the "new year, new you" passion, what are you doing new, as a business?

Has your signature treatment been your most popular this last year? If not, it may be time to reinvent your signature. Whether it be a new scent added to the space or into treatments, or an entire new color or theme, when was the last time you had something completely fresh and new to excite them?

For those looking for big drastic changes to get their clients attention at the door, how about new reception furniture, fire or water features or a relaxation room?

For more subtle transformation, how about placing diffusers around with one specific scent (or blend), adding complimentary Voesh or Eco Fin treatments for clients who purchase packages?

If you want to revive clients eyes, how about adding a splash or color (or new color), with linens? From sheets and blankets to robes and slippers - even mag lamps, your clients will notice!

SOAP And You

When I was in massage school, our teachers instilled in us the importance of keeping detailed client records or, SOAP notes. At the time, many thought of it as a way to simply to track progress and as a refresher to jog our memories. It wasn't until we actually got out into the world to practice, to really understand the impact of SOAP notes.

For those unfamiliar with the term, SOAP notes stand for the following:

Subjective
Objective
Assessment
Plan


While keeping detailed client notes is an excellent way of charting progress and change, it is vital in business to protect yourself. If, for some reason, a situation arose where your services were questioned (medical reasons, insurance, legal etc), having detailed accounts of each client is imperative. It is much easier and more reliable to refer to documented information than that of "let me think for a second" and try to remember. It is also important to remember to document what the client tells you, from medications to likes/dislikes - you'd be surprised how these seemingly small pieces of information can have a huge impact!

It also gives your clients the confidence that you're paying attention to them, their body and their needs. Confident clients are loyal clients!

Lemon Restores!

Are you looking for a new special for winter that's going to set you apart from your competition?

Maybe something different than the typical winter menu items. What about lemon?

Lemon Balm is in the Mint family and is known for cooling and restoring a depleted, exhausted system...but not the kind of exhaustion that comes from exercise, sport or physical exertion, but the kind that comes when one is over-extended, anxious or unable to sleep, due to prolonged periods of mental or emotional "selflessness". This is a powerful remedy to use when mothering a newborn, dealing with a stressful emotional situation or taking care of a sick or elderly parent.

It's winter, its cold, seasonal depression kicks in, and you can give your clients a natural boost!

Try adding Farmaesthetics Lemon Balm Remedy Oil to your services.

How does it work?
Bath Soaks, Massage or Benefit Booster to any lotion. Adding 1-2 tablespoons of desired Remedy Oil to the Nourishing Lavender Milk or Nourishing Herbal Cream will super-charge the preparation to target specific conditions.

Important healing ingredients-
  1. Sweet Almond Oil: A light, odorless, high-grade fruit kernel oil - wonderfully nourishing to the skin.
  2. Lemon Balm: A member of the mint family, Lemon Balm is appropriate for use for the most sensitive and/or weakened of conditions. It is known as a potent treatment for anxiety and insomnia, especially in new mothers and pregnant women, whose systems may be depleted from all the demands and hormonal changes of their bodies. Farmaesthetics uses Lemon Balm in its whole herb form, which is a powerfully complete way to administer all the known benefits of this gentle, non-toxic herb.
  3. Vitamin E: Used to stabilize all of Farmaesthetics natural non-aqueous formulations. Benefits of restoring skin's elasticity. Assists in healing scars and preventing stretch marks in the skin that is being stretched from pregnancy or weight gain.
For an extra touch add Organic Invigorate Tea - Peppermint-Lemon Mood Booster, before, during, or after the service! It's an extra added touch that will really wow your clients.

Create the perfect environment by adding Soi Candle Thai Lemongrass

Jar Candle Thai Lemongrass - An exotic blend of Thai Lemongrass and Bamboo. This candle will burn for about 140 Hours. Each candle is hand poured, using only the finest ingredients and fragrance oils available.

Inspired by the passion for fragrance, love of exotic travel and strive for clean living. Aqua de SOi’s beautiful packaging and exotic fragrances will create a luxurious environment for everyday living wherever you choose.

All products can be retailed too!

Be Memorable!

Do your clients refer to you for one specific reason aside from, "the place I get my facials"?

Do they refer to you as "XYZ, they have this amazing Caviar Facial that is unlike any other!?

Big difference there. Do you have a signature? If you do, what sets it apart from anything they can get down the block, or next town over?

Be the place that smells like warm vanilla when you walk in, that offers a signature Cinnamon & Clove scrub in the winter, that is to die for!

Be the massage therapist who not only gives a phenomenal massage, but offers a delicious smelling butter rum hand and foot treatment during the winter!

You can have a year round signature, seasonal or whatever works best for your style - just don't forget to see what's new, and how your competition is evolving.
