Facial Add On - Portable Ultrasonic

There are only so many services you can perform in a day, so maximizing the profit on each service is key. An easy and affordable way to take a facial to another level, is with a portable ultrasonic like the Asla Portable Ultrasonic Massager by Silver Spa. 

Ultrasonic vibrations help with everything from calming inflammation to increasing blood circulation and oxygenating tissues. During an ultrasonic facial, the high level sound wave penetrate deep below the surface of the skin promoting cellular renewal and repair, toning muscles, increasing blood circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, combating puffiness and swelling and improving skin care product penetration. 

Ultrasound may be used on most parts of the body, including the face, neck, arms, breasts, stomach, waist, hips, buttocks, and leg, making this a multi use tool for less than $100!

Get Salty! Salt Stone Massages

Getting a hot stone massage makes many instantly think relaxing thoughts, with the occasional “oooh” or “aaah” while they’re thinking. Why not take the massage to the next level with salt stones?

Salt crystals from an ancient primal sea beneath the Himalayan Mountains are hand-carved into massage stones that gently soothe away an accumulation of stress, tension and pollutants.Salt therapy in general is still trending, with more and more businesses adding in various treatments, salt beds or tables, add on services and even retailing salt lamps for home use.

The salt stones are easy to use, portable and pay for themselves in no time at all!

For inquiring minds who have questions, here are a few quick tips:

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do you heat the stones?
A: Any dry heat source, heating pad, toaster oven, skillet, light bulb, and of course our aesthetically pleasing, air purifying salt stone warmer lamp, or salt bowl lamp. We do not recommend heating in the microwave.

Q: How do you clean the stones?
A: Ultimately salt is antimicrobial, and should not require any disinfecting. Since we cannot guarantee this, we recommend cleaning the stones this way: After each use you can take a spray bottle and make a solution of thyme and tea tree oil and spray the stones and dry them immediately. At the end of the day, you can take a bottle of warm or hot water and put a couple of tablespoons of white vinegar in it with 10 drops of tea tree oil. You then dip the stone and swish it around. You can leave it in a few seconds, but any length of time will cause the stone to disintegrate. Dry the stone immediately, put it back on it's heat source to dry better and further sanitize.

Q: How long do they last?
A: The stones last indefinitely, as long as they are kept dry. When exposed to moisture they will pit and sometimes dissolve depending on how much moisture. When they get rough you can sand them with sand paper to smooth them. When used with water for salt scrub and lymphatic drainage, they will need to be replaced from time to time.

Q: Can you use them with lotion or oil?
A: We do not recommend using with oil. It is difficult to clean and clogs the salt. We recommend using Jojoba or Coconut oil. These two oils do not get rancid or degrade the salt. Depending on the skin you can use the stones dry as well.

Q: Do you have to heat the stones?
A: The stones have a therapeutic effect warm or cold. When warmed, the negative ion potential of the stone is ignited.

High frequency is an incredible way to invigorate circulation by stimulating cells beneath the skin. High frequency current stimulation forces an infusion of oxygen-rich molecules into the skin, which cleanses, massages, stimulates blood flow, and dilates superficial blood vessels. Because of the increased blood flow, high frequency tones the skin (similar to muscle toning).

Massage On The Go?

Many of the mobile LMT's I've spoken with, have all had one major thing in common - ease of transport. I used to pop my table in the back of my car along with a bag full of linens, lotion, music, clock and more. I wanted to be sure I had everything my room had (minus the hot towel cabi!) to give the best possible on site table massage. The thing I hear the MOST, is how they need an easy to transport stool.

This is where my favorite manufacturer of massage products, Earthlite, comes in with the perfect solution. The Folding Massage Stool to match your table. Easy to transport and as durable as any Earthlite table or chair. All for under $100!

No more kneeling, squatting or asking clients for something to sit on!

    Perfectly Portable Pedicures!

    I've spoken to quite a few business owners lately looking to maximize their space while still being able to offer a variety of services. Many clients who offer nail services or who are looking to start offering them, have been gravitating towards portable pedicure spa.

    A portable pedicure spa enables you to offer pedicure add ons easily to other services without the client having to switch rooms! If you have no nail services booked or only book them on certain days, you're not loosing space by having a stationary pedicure chair in place.

    One of the portable options that has been quite the buzz is the SaniJet Pipeless Portable Foot Bath by Living Earth Crafts. If you are looking for a high quality, affordable (don't forget we offer financing for equipment and furniture!), and easy to use portable pedicure spa...this is it! Quiet and comfortable - two vital elements!

    One of the leaders in the industry, Living Earth Craft products combine quality craftsmanship with comfort and beautiful options...once you bring in a piece of theirs, you'll be hooked!

    Growing Your Business On The Go!


    There are multiple benefits for massage therapists to utilize chair massage both in the office and on the road.

    Half of the therapists I know never bothered to buy a massage chair while they other half swear by them. I personally saw the benefits of having one versus not.

    Having one set up in your office, especially those who work out of a doctor, chiropractor, acupuncture or any other non traditional massage office is a great way to gain new clients and get people comfortable with massage therapy without having to undress. It's also the perfect time to educate those people who are unfamiliar with the benefits of massage therapy. You also could use it to book shorter sessions at $1.00 per minute with a 15 minute maximum or whatever works best for you to fill in any gaps in your schedule. I found that with people's hectic schedules sometimes they could only spare 10 or 15 minutes or they tweaked something between sessions. People would happily swing by for a quick session to hold them over until their next regular session. It was a great way to profit off what would have been lost time.

    Bringing a massage chair to local events or setting up at a local business is a great way to increase your visibility in the community. Working an event or fair you get to reach a large number of people who you may never have met otherwise. You could also set up with a dry erase board with your company information and offer coupons or advertise specials while giving out free 10 minute chair massages.

    If  you don't already have a chair massage or are looking to upgrade the one you have, check out the Avila II™ Portable Massage Chair Package by EarthLite 
    This is an unbeatable package at a great price.

    Another great chair package is the Vortex™ Portable Massage Chair Package by EarthLite. It's lightweight, durable and also has an attractive price point. 

    Don't forget to stock up on plenty of disposable face cradles covers like the W.R. Rayson Disposable Face Cradle Cover / 50 Pack

    A massage chair is a great way to increase your visibility and will save you money in advertising!
