Cellulite Awareness and Sales

Cellulite is one of the main concerns for many people of many ages. Men and women alike can feel insecure about areas of cellulite that they can see. Key words: that they can see. We are not able to easily get an up close look at every inch of our body, or that is just me showing my age? Having a tool to detect and classify thermal signs of cellulite can result in an increase in slimming services!

The Arosha® Cellulite Detector Thermography Kit helps to localize body areas which require greater attention and show clients where their cellulite forms. By using innovative contact thermography system, clients can see areas they may never known have cellulite. Incredibly easy to use, simply place on the area to be observed and make it adhere perfectly. Wait for the colors to stabilize in a firm image, and proceed with interpretation as indicated in the manual and product presentation.

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.

Why Wait Til Valentines Day To Offer Chocolate?

Everyone focuses on chocolate treatments for Valentines Day, chocolate products fly off the shelves every January. How about the rest of the year?

People love chocolate, any time of year! If you put a basket of chocolates on the reception counter, clients will eat it. Why not offer End-of-the-Year Chocolate Guilty Pleasure treatments?

Here is a body treatment that will leave your clients feeling like they jumped into a decadent pool of warm melty chocolate!

For the scrub:
In a large rubber bowl, mix 1/4 cup of dead sea salt with 1/4 cup of chocolate mint or chocolate cake oil. After mixing well, place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabi or large stainless bowl filled with hot water.



For the wrap:
In a medium rubber bowl, blend 5 tablespoons of white clay powder with 4 teaspoons of aloe gel.
Add in 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder and 2 teaspoons of water, mix well. If this seems to dry, add a little more water until it can be applied in a thin layer. Keep the bowl warm until ready to use.

Perform the body treatment as you normally would, including any add on services like dry brushing, Eco Fin, or even a facial mask!

Butter Your Clients Up With Shea Butter

Looking to tighten up your spending, without sacrificing anything in your services? When was the last time you took a look at shea butter?

Did you just go, "oooh shea butter, I used to use/love that a few years ago"? You're not alone! The secret weapon of some savvy spas for years has been shea butter.

Chock full of oleic acid, a super hydrating fatty acid, shea butter should be in every room, station and on every trolley. It's also one of the most versatile products I can think of, as it can be used in almost any service. Use it an add on to any service you offer, it is great for retailing, and can be used as a carrier base for essential oils.

Clients with sensitive skin? Shea butter is gentle enough for even acne prone clients.

Not sure what services it can be easily incorporated in to? Here are a few to get your thoughts moving like butter:

Hair: can be used in/as a hair mask, can be used as an add on for a scalp massage (give clients a choice of essential oil to add in as well) to any other service

Massage: can be used as a carrier for essential oils, blends well with other oils like coconut and jojoba for a ridiculously luxurious feel.

Facials: helps promote elasticity, helps fade age spots and of course, it's been rumored to be a favorite of Cleopatra to keep her skin looking young and glowing

Body Treatments: slather this on your clients with a mylar blanket for a heavenly body wrap, use after a body scrub or dry brushing treatment, mix in an abrasive of your choice (salt, sugar, raw ingredients etc) for a cost effective and hydrating scrub

Nails: you can use this as a lotion or add in sugar or salt for a scrub

Sometimes the simplest of things can have the biggest impact for your clients, and your bottom line. Shea butter is high on that list!

Menu Spotlight: Back Acne Be Gone!!!

Since this is the season of dare to bare, people want their skin as flawless as possible without having to spend a fortune. If you have clients with back acne, this is a great, affordable (yet cost AND time effective for your business!) treatment to test out in your Summer menu.

Back Masque - think of a clever name to fit your menu theme/style!

In a medium rubber mixing bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of marine fango with 4-6 drops of eucalyptus oil. Prep your bed for a body treatment, placing a protective covering on. Place a heating pad set on low on the table, so that it will line up under the client's back area. Spread a layer of the masque on to a disposable pad, and place on the heating pad. You can also apply the masque to the client's back with a body brush, and have them lie down on the disposable pad and heating pad.

If you've up sold the client into services to be done at the same time, begin those will the client is laying on the masque.

Once the other services have been completed, remove the back masque with warm, damp towels.

Take a look at some information and ideas for add on treatments to up sell, here.

Wrap It Up with Parafango

If you're interested in new services for your summer menu, look into Parafango! This service offers mind-blowing results that leave the body firm and tight. Who doesn't want results like that, especially in the summer?



What is Parafango?
Parafango is a mixture of Sea Mud and Paraffin. The Sea Mud is rich in minerals and causes pore dilation and perspiration with a calming and analgesic effect. It helps eliminate toxins with an in-depth purification. Its great power of heat retention stimulates the blood circulation and revitalizes the skin. The Paraffin optimizes the penetration of the active ingredients used for deep, long-lasting effects. The paraffin helps the product sustain a gradually released fusing heat and can retain application temperature for up to an hour and a half. The Parafango stimulates the lymphatic flow on our body to draw out toxins from around the fat cells. The wrapping technique compresses the skin and compacts the soft fatty tissue making it more firm and tight.

Check out our Parafango Kit, containing everything you need to get started!
 The deluxe kit allows you to deliver 5 additional treatments...a total of 10 treatments.

Kit Includes:
  • (2) 6.6 lbs packages of Parafango
  • 12 Disposable Thong Panties
  • Parafango Warmer
  • 20 Aminodren Ampoules
  • Applicator Brush
  • Measuring Tape
  • Plastic Bed Sheets
  • 7 oz Cremefoliant
  • 7 oz Aminofirm
  • Roll of Film
  • 7 oz Lipoaminocel
  • 20 Aminocel Ampoules
  • 17.6 oz Aminofirm with Pump
  • Film Cutter
  • Technician Manual and DVD
  • 17.6 oz Lipoaminocel with Pump

Recommended Usage:
1. Weigh the client and measure them above the knee, mid thigh and upper thigh.
2. Place the plastic bed cover sheet on the bed. Apply the exfoliating cream-gel Cremfoliant on the desired area and wait for one minute before gently rubbing in circular movements. Once dry, remove any excess product with a towel.
3. If treating inch loss use Aminodren ampoules and for cellulite Aminocel A.H.A. ampoules. Apply the serum with a gentle massage until it is uniformly applied over the entire area.
4. Mix Parafango well with brush before applying. Turn client on side and brush Paragango on until a thick layer is achieved (3 - 4 layers).
5. Wrap film tightly around each thigh 4 times starting from the ankle upwards. Wrap the waist separately.
6. Cover client with bed sheet.
7. To increase fluid circulation, wrap client with a blanket or electric blanket for 15 minutes.
8. Cut the wrap down the center starting from the ankle upwards. 
9. Peel Parafango off to the sides. 
10. Apply Lipoaminocel for cellulite or Aminofirm for skin toning.
11. Take measurements.

Rebalance Your Clients with the Complete Shirodhara Kit

Ayurvedic spas are becoming increasingly popular. Want to try a new service to bring in an entirely new clientele? Or even surprise your existing clients with an exciting new service?

Ayurvedic practice is considered a medicine that treats mind, body, soul and the universe as one being. Its belief holds that all things, including people, are composed of the five elements of water, fire, earth, air and space. If the balance of these five elements becomes disrupted within a person, illness occurs. Rebalance is possible through Ayurvedic practices to restore the five elements and regain health and happiness.

Interested yet? Take a look at the Copper Complete Shirodhara Kit / Manual

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.

System includes:

  • Copper Shirodhara Stand
  • Copper Shirodhara pot w/control valve
  • 2 Copper Pouring Pitchers
  • Electric Solid Element Burner
  • Vinyl Strip for directing the oil back to the pitcher (not shown)
  • Shirodhara Manual with the history, benefits, and various methods of the treatment.
Want to know a little more?

To understand Ayurveda, one must first know that its foundation lies in the three forces: Creation, Change, and Destruction (sattva, rajas, and tamas in Sanskrit.) These three forces are called gunas. One guna cannot be without the others, everything that exists goes through these stages. When the gunas interact with one another, the result is the five elements: Ether (space), Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Everything we see, touch, think, and experience has some combination of these elements within. Each element carries specific attributes that make it unique. In life, none of the five elements ever exists alone as each successive element is born from the one before it. Think of Ether as the vastness of the cosmos. This space is the home for all objects in the universe, namely energy. When sattva, rajas, and tamas take a hold of this universal energy in space, the result is air, the first state of matter. When air shifts through the three stages, it starts to move around, causing friction. This action produces heat and light and fire is born. As this pattern continues, fire liquefies matter and a new cycle starts as water comes forth. As the water goes through its stage of destruction, it evaporates, and earth solidifies from what is left behind. Then the process starts over again, and it is happening all around us all the time. 

Get ahead of the trend, and try it!

Just in time for the cooler fall weather, here's a treatment recipe to indulge your client's senses!

Hot & Spicy Scrub 
(I'm confident you'll have a more creative name!)

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 1/4 cup Sucanat Sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of  Ginger Root Powder. Add 6 teaspoons of Grapeseed Oil and 6 drops of cinnamon essential oil and mix well. Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or a large stainless bowl of how water.

Leave on for about 15 - 20 minutes. This is the perfect time for an add-on scalp massage! Little touches like an herbal eye pack or cool pack will stand out to your clients as well. Remove the blankets and sheeting and have the client shower if you do not yet have a Vichy shower. You can also use warm damp towels and a spray bottle to remove.

Be sure to have some hot apple cider or tea on hand to complete the experience!

Showerless Slimming Service For Summer!

Try saying that three times fast!

Seriously (I can't help it!), slimming treatments are always a hot menu item during the summer. I've spoken to a few clients who were shying away from stepping out of their normal menu due to not having a shower. Not having a shower does not mean you have to lose out on offering services - you just need to get a little creative :)

The #1 seller across the board for retail and use in a variety of services is the Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub Anti-Cellulite Formula (my personal fav as well!). Simple to use, natural ingredients, effective and you don't need a shower! If you have a spray bottle you can fill with water and some towels - there's no reason not to have this! Be sure to have a tester container for demoing on clients - once they feel how incredibly soft and smooth their skin feels immediately after using it, they will be running to the register and telling all of their friends.

Ultrasonic Cavitation Non-Surgical Liposuction Body Slimming Machine - great for clients as a package or series!

Remineralizing Body Masque - Slimming and Toning - another awesome one that you can use a spray bottle and towels to clean up!

Meishida Far Infrared Slenderizing Sauna Blanket - hot ticket item at spas across the world who offer slimming services!

With a little creativity and a variety of products, you can slim your clients and boost your profits!
