The Secret Power Of Balms!

What do you associate a balm with? Lying on a beach or yacht somewhere exotic, not a cloud in the sky with a balmy breeze? Sounds good to me! I'm also a fan of skin balms, they can be an incredible multi-tool.

Many balms are made from natural product like the Green & Good balms by Eco Fin. A favorite of technicians and clients alike, Alchimie Forever has two balms to love. Formulated by a Swiss dermatologist the line is also cruelty free and vegan friendly - dermatologist formulated, tested and kind to our animal friends - what a combo from a company!

Moor Spa has you covered with a balm from your eyes and lips, to a soothing tension balm, and a lot in between!

From muscle pain relief and skin soothing to beard care and under eye lightening, balms are easy to use and effective!

"Text Neck" A New Trend In Massage

Move over carpel tunnel syndrome, an issue becoming more and more common is text neck. Yes, exactly as it sounds - neck issues stemming from tilting your head down to look at your phone/tablet.

Whether this is an actual medical term or not, text neck is a real problem facing a majority of people. Many clients may not even know the reason for their neck pain, shoulder pain and other issues (headaches are a common complaint!), only that they are in pain.

You can attract a new set of clients or, introduce current clients to new services by simply advertising "Texting Relief" or something much more clever! It gives you an opportunity to educate clients about coming in for massage regularly to alleviate text neck symptoms. It allows you to introduce busy clients who may not have time (or want) to come in for a full hour service. Offering an express massage focused on the head, neck and shoulders, is a perfect remedy!

Be sure to incorporate some deep muscle therapy relief like Biofreeze, Sombra or Mother Earth Polar! Also, relaxing aromatherapy blends, hot/cold packs for use in service and for retailing are key to have on hand!

Here are some awesome items to consider:

Headache Relief Essential Oils
Corpak Hot/Cold Pack with Strap Trisectional - this is amazing for text neck!
Still Point Inducer
Neck Wrap
Head, Neck, and Shoulder Massage DVD
Soothing Touch Muscle Comfort

The Benefits Of Ice Combined With Heat


As a massage therapist, how many times have clients come to you with a sore or pulled muscle, exclaiming they put heat on the area, but felt no relief, or the heat made it worse? What about client who let you know they put heat on the area....for an hour?


I can't tell you how many times clients have told me they thought heat was the cure-all for sore or tight muscles. As therapists, I believe it is our job to not only provide relief and comfort to our clients but to also educate them.

A great method for many acute muscle pain situations is utilizing a combination of cold and hot therapy. I simply advise my clients to use ice for 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes of heat and end with an additional 10 minutes of ice. The initial icing begins to calm spasms down, the heat increases fresh blood supply and nutrients to the area, and the final icing calms the area back down again. By repeating this a few times a day from the onset of pain for a few days, I have found a reduction in discomfort and healing time. As a result, my clients are happy, pain free and have learned how to better take care of themselves when they aren't able to see me. 

By educating our clients on even the smallest things, especially when it's a home relief situation they see how much you are invested in them as a person, not just as a client.

Pure Spa Direct is your ultimate source for all of your massage needs, including HOT and COLD therapy products! You can also increase your bottom line by retailing hot and cold packs to your clients. Check out our huge selection today, and see how Pure Spa can save you time and money by consolidating your ordering!

Biofreeze is a pain relieving gel that is great for treating pain relating to sport injuries, bruises, sore muscles, joint pain and arthritis. It contains an herb called llex paraguariensis which is a holly shrub found in South America. Biofreeze is a topical painkiller which helps people deal with arthritis on a day to day basis, making it possible for them to go about their day without the constant pain. For athletes who have sore muscles or sprained ankles, Biofreeze will allow them to continue to perform at a high level.



You can use this product in services as well. You can use it help relax muscles during a massage. It has a light smell that won't overpower your clients , which helps with the experience of a massage. Also by heating up the area you are going to use it on enhances the effect. Laying warm towels down on your client before using the Biofreeze helps relax the muscles and makes the effects more noticeable. The cooling effect of this product will be a memorable one for your client in your spa and they will want to bring some home - so be sure to pick some extras up to retail! Pure Spa Direct offers Biofreeze available as a spray, roll-on and gel in different sizes. Come and check it out.
