Scent or No Scent, That Is The Question

Many clients will ask what the most popular scents are at various times during the year. While it is incredibly important to have the right scent(s) to boost business and create a mood, it's also important to remember the power of unscented.

There is a good chunk of people who either are allergic or sensitive to scents, or flat out don't enjoy them for one reason or another. Do you have unscented options for your treatments? Do you have a "scent free" area for clients with severe sensitivities or who may be experiencing migraine symptoms?

Why not ask clients or send out an email poll about it? Get their thoughts on having a scent free section or if there are ever times they would prefer to have an option of scented or unscented. The worst that will happen is they have zero opinion. For those clients who DO have a preference, it will make a huge impression on them by asking....and accommodating their responses.

From massages to nail services, sometimes a simple option can make all the difference!

June is National Migraine Awareness Month!

June is National Migraine Awareness Month and as a migraine sufferer, having a business or therapist that has the right tools to help, is a lifesaver!

From the throbbing head pain, stiff/sore neck, and nausea to name are just some of the most common headache issues that you can help your clients with.

Here are a few of our best selling headache and migraine relief items to help you alleviate your clients pain!

Miracle Migraine Aromatherapy - I use one of these blends and it worked so well that I carry it in my bag along with my Biofreeze roll on. You never know when a migraine will hit so be sure to retail these!

Core Headache Ice Pillow - another item I use when any type of headache hits. The unique design allows the cold to hit right under the base of the skull!

Therapearl Hot & Cold - Eye-ssential Pack / Blue

Cold Stones and Hot Stones - ask your clients what helps them! For me, cold always helps but for some, heat could do the trick!

Ginger or Peppermint Tea for nausea

Epsom Salt - sometimes a hot bath with epsom salts can calm everything down!

Advertising migraine specials in June is a great way to bring in new clients, have clients try something new and give you the opportunity to have a huge impact on your clients life, that they may not have known you could help with!

Cold Stones For Migraine Relief

Headaches are one of the most common complaints we hear about, migraines are one of the most debilitating form of a headache. Personally, I am open to pretty much any treatment that claims migraine relief. I have tried acupressure, acupuncture, aromatherapy (Migraine Miracle is awesome!) however, I have not yet tried cold stone massage therapy treatment.

As a migraine sufferer, I am well aware of the relief a cold pack can provide. Massage therapy combined with cold therapy can be extremely helpful in dealing with migraine pain. Migraines are not only painful, but they are stressful. Massage will help calm the nervous system down which helps the body naturally relax. Cold therapy will help decrease the pressure felt by the excess blood flow to the head/brain which causes so much pain. 

Adding in complimentary treatments such as aromatherapy and trigger point massage will increase the all around benefits.
