21st Century Treatments- Cashing In on Gadget Addictions!

With more gadgets seemingly glued to everyone's hands and staring at computer screens all day and night, people are experiencing technology-related pains.

I just read an article in Day Spa magazine about more and more spas gearing treatments for people experiencing pain and fatigue from their electronic addictions.

Commonly seen issues include repetition injuries to the hands, wrists and forearms, tightness in the neck/shoulder area, and puffy eyes with dark circles from staring at screens until wee hours of the night.

Over time these injuries can become extremely painful and continue to get worse. This technological addiction provides a great opportunity to market treatments and increase sales, all without any or much cost to you!

You can simply offer a massage that covers the specific areas affected by overuse, or even let them pick 3 areas such as hands, forearms and neck. Come up with creative names for the treatments, how about the "Computer Slave Service" (I never claimed to be clever!) to set them apart from your regular services. You can even have special days offering stress relief packages..."unplugged days," if you will.

If you offer yoga or even have some extra space to offer it, you can offer stretching classes to literally pry people away from their gadgets.

The article had some great jumping off points,
