Ease Your Mind and Body With Float Therapy!

What if you could bring peace and relaxation to your clients like they have never experienced before? Now you can with flotation therapy. Imagine where the mind could go and how healing would come if one could completely quiet the body. In a Royal Spa Float Tank, clients are treated to an amazing weightless experience. Clients can learn how to relax in the deepest sense of the word... weightless, silent, and peaceful.


In water temperatures that match the body's own internal temperature, clients float, suspended in a rich bath of Epsom salt (or magnesium sulfate) - a mineral of which nearly all people are deficient. As they float, clients absorb and increase magnesium and sulfate levels, calming their nervous system and enhancing their body's natural ability to heal. Aches, pains and stress fade away. Vitality is renewed. Clients will emerge feeling like a new person. Floating is a powerful tool for managing pain and stress, and for self-exploration.

The Royal Spa Float Tanks have been designed with three things in mind. First, they offer your clients an amazing experience from flotation therapy that they will want to come back for on a regular basis. Second, they tanks are unbelievably low in maintenance. And third, they are very energy efficient.

Flotation therapy has been shown to be beneficial for:

  • Migraine relief
  • Sleep improvement
  • Stress management, recovery from addiction, and PTSD
  • Anti-inflammatory muscle relief - i.e. pain management, including back and neck aches, migraines, muscle and joint soreness
  • Relief from fibromyalgia and other disorders of the muscles and joints
  • Relief from arthritis
  • Improved digestion
  • Reduced tendency toward diabetes
  • Autism therapy
  • Spiritual discovery and meditation
  • Doubles rate of healing in contusional and muscle strains
  • Theta wave healing
  • Creativity enhancement and super-learning
  • Relief for pregnancy symptoms—relieves pressure from feet and back; also, creates symbiotic sense of connection with baby

The Royal Spa Float Tanks hold 180 gallons and are available in a Clinical Model for spas and salons (controlled by your Clinician) and a Commercial Model for float centers (with a Lobby Control System & Session Control). All of our units accommodate iPod with either direct-connect or Bluetooth, providing your MP3 music inside. The heating system is a flow-through type with additional heaters under the tank. They use multiple purification systems and a simple filter that is readily available.

Details:
  • Unparalleled Design & Functionality
  • 24/7 Filtration When Not in Use
  • Extremely Low Interior Condensation
  • Under-Body Heater: Maintain Constant Temperature During Float
  • Combined Ozone, Germicidal UV and Filter Purification
  • Multi Color LED / Chromotherapy - the user can select a variety of colors or cycle through. They can choose the color you are most attracted to during a float.
  • iPod & MP3 Integration
  • All Components Built Into Pod Body - No Additional Space Needed
  • Ultra Quiet Motor / Multiple Jets For Better Water Flow
  • Warranty: 10 Year Structural, 5 Year Parts and 1 Year Surface

Luxurious Legs using Roll On's

Lately, we are seeing an increase in the sales of our cartridge waxing systems! Roll-on cartridges are ideal for large body areas such as legs, back, chest, arms, etc. They are easy to use, hygienic, drip-free and disposable after use. Convenient for speed waxing and is a major time saver.

I personally love this wax for a full leg service!

Take a look at my top waxes:

Starpil Pink Rose Roll-On Wax

Recommended for delicate skin types. Its high concentration of soothing agents makes it particularly suitable for sensitive skin and skin with circulatory problems.

The resins in the roll-ons enable them to be used at higher temperatures than low melting point waxes. The heat opens the pores of the skin also, but because the wax is applied much thinner, the resins cool almost immediately without producing a burning sensation. The product is then easily removed using strips. The ingredients in the Roll-On's are formulated to delay hair growth and leave skin moisturized and soft.

Miss Cire Blue Azulene Roll-On Low-Temperature Strip Wax Cartridges are a low-temperature wax formulated for all skin types and client comfort. High-grade ingredients make of this wax a perfect solution for all hair thickness, coarse or baby hair. It has a great texture, very easy to use, and gentle on the skin.

The Azulene Roll-on cartridge offers a reliable range of benefits including hydrating and renewing your skin cells.

Ultra Flexxx Vanilla White Strip Wax - Roll On Cartridge by Mancine Professional

Mancine Ultra Wax range’s unique plastic texture makes their Ultra waxes ultra-flexible, has a powerful grip, and perfect for waxing. Ultra Flexxx is mixed with titanium dioxide which makes it great for sensitive areas, reducing redness with its hypoallergenic properties. 

Ultra waxes have a low melting point, are odorless, and will last one and a half times longer than most organic waxes. Suitable for all skin types!


Black Formula: Our black wax is rich in organic and mineral properties that help leave the skin soft and moist. Recommended for thick hair. With a unique blend of wax, we have everything that you need for easy, effective, and gentle waxing.

This technology ensures more efficient hair removal through a stronger grip while also decreasing the temperature of the wax, reducing the risk of burns, and alleviating pain.

Pair any of these waxes with the Starpil Pro Roll-On Wax Warmer!


The ideal appliance for use with our Roll-On wax cartridges. Durable construction and quality you can count on. For when one Roll-On is not enough. Always have a second Roll-On warm and ready for back to back appointments. 

It comes with base and power cord for cordless hassle-free waxing.

Beautiful Glass Accessories from Katari

So many of our spa clients mix their own masks, scrubs, or other delectable recipes to gift or sell to their clients. They are always looking for beautiful and effective ways to store their goodies, and I always tell our clients to check out the beautiful glass accessories from Katari!

One of my favorites is the Handblown Clear Glass Jar with Spoon. This jar is ideal for lotions, masques, powders, and seeds. It comes with a natural cork closure and a mini spoon. Not for oils or very liquid products. It comes in clear glass to show off the beauty of the ingredients inside.

The alternative to this beauty is a plastic ketchup container. How many spas use little plastic disposable containers to give away samples or send a customer home with some left-over masque or recipe?

Many of our spa clients commented on this and were looking for a beautiful alternative, so we went ahead and made a sustainable and functional option for them and their customers. You can add this piece of art glass to your arsenal of accessories.

Why Katari?
Katari believes in working with people directly and knowing where and how every single part of our incredible collection came to be. We want you to experience the stories of artisans and their artistry through everything you touch. We hope that our efforts help preserve ancient crafts and thousand-year old traditions of purest, timeless Mediterranean single-ingredients.

Storage & Handling:
Please use care as you would with any glass accessory. The jars are dishwasher safe and cork can be washed with mild soap and air-dried.

Ingredients:
Ingredients are important even when it comes to simple accessories. There is no plastic mixed into this glass. It is made out of pure, lab-quality glass, which means that adding and storing ingredients in this jar will not create a reaction where ingredients might change their chemistry. And ingredient chemistry, unaltered, is what you need in any incredible natural beauty recipe.

Whether you keep your own recipes in this jar or sell a jar filled with your creations using our ingredients, it is up to you. It will add to the sophistication of your spa and add to your retail and treatment (post-care) sales.

  1. Ultrasonic - The ultrasonic therapy sends streams of high-speed ultrasonic vibrations into the skin layers at speeds of up to 28,000 vibrations per second. These safe, high-frequency vibrations are scientifically designed to remove imperfections under the skin such as dead skin cells, black and whiteheads, dirt and grease particles. This treatment also has a lifting effect that creates ultra-smooth, soft & supremely elastic skin.
  2. Skin Scrubber - The skin scrubber uses a two-function metal spatula to cleanse and exfoliate the skin. In the "up" position, the blade can be used to stimulate blood flow and help product penetration. The scrubber vibrates at 25000 vibrations per second to deeply penetrate, lift and tighten skin. In the "down" position, the blade is used to gently scrape off dull, dry skin cells, remove blackheads, and exfoliate the skin. When combined with ultrasonic stimulating, the skin scrubber has a fantastic rejuvenating effect on the skin.
  3. High Frequency - An incredible way to invigorate circulation by stimulating cells beneath the skin.

  5. Galvanic - Galvanic treatments increase oxygen and circulation, reduce wrinkles, facilitate deeper penetration of skin products and detoxify. The Galvanic Roller does this through both iontophoresis and desincrustation techniques.

    Iontophoresis is an electricity-based delivery system for nutrients that circumvents many of the lipid bi-layers of the skin by directly penetrating between them, something that passive liquid diffusion cannot.

    Desincrustation is a deep cleansing treatment that softens sebum and is the ideal treatment for oily or congested skin. Prepares the skin for extractions or Iontophoresis. It can be used after cleansing and if appropriate after a facial steam,

  6. Vacuum/Spray - The vacuum function removes any surface debris and aids in the cleansing process. Then the sprayer allows you to lightly shower the skin with your favorite revitalizing toner or m
  7. Radio Frequency - The premise behind RF is the electrical energy tends to follow the shortest distance between two electrodes (positive and negative). When electricity runs through living tissue, the high energy flow generates heat bringing blood circulation, lymphatic drainage and firming.
  8. Hot and Cold Hammer - The hot and cold hammer for facial treatments. The hot head provides heat for muscle relaxation and skin pore opening. The cold head is used to apply cool on the skin, reducing wrinkles, smoothing skin and closing pores.
  9. Diamond Micro Dermabrasion - ideal for controlled and non invasive exfoliation treatments. It works on the most superficial skin layers removing dead cells, fine lines, and comedones. Microdermabrasion is a wonderful and innovative facial procedure that is recommended for almost any skin type.

LED Add-On for Waxers!

 LED Light treatments work by using an array of bright light-emitting diodes at specific wavelengths (originally developed by NASA!) that send low-level light energy into the deeper layers of the skin.

There are a huge amount of benefits from all colors, but today I wanted to talk about one that doesn't get enough attention in the industry!

Green.

Green LED therapy is used to treat dilated capillaries, drooping eyes, circles under the eye, and hyperpigmentation. It stimulates the injured blood cells and increases DNA activity.

In the beauty industry, it is most commonly used to reduce redness. Making it an ideal add on for waxing!

Do you have clients who get super red or have a special event that day? Adding on a quick LED light therapy session, will immediately calm the skin, leaving a beautiful glow!

Take a look at this simple option, that won't break the bank but will bring in tons of revenue-

Handheld Cordless Mini Photon Ultrasonic Facial Device with LED Light Therapy

This photon-ultrasonic device vibrates at 3MHz (3 million times of micro amplitude vibration per second). It contains Red, Blue and Green LED light.

The Cordless Mini Ultrasonic with LED Light Therapy offers the most efficient and secure ultrasonic index available in skincare. The ultrasonic vibrations penetrate only 1mm under the skin so it is more suitable for the delicate area around the eyes.

The high level of ultrasonic micro-vibration helps to generate blood circulation and effectively stimulate metabolism in the skin cells.

Also excellent for promoting product penetration.
