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.

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.

Body Workers: Clients With Chronic Pain

If you're a body worker, is the bread and butter of your business clients with chronic pain or injury? If so, do you offer massage add ons or a variety of techniques to choose from?

Tiered services other than hot stone and/or aromatherapy seem to be something seasoned body workers shy away from. While making your hour long service a better value than the half hour one, what other ways are you maximizing your profit potential? 

For clients with chronic pain, not only can the variety keep them coming back, the value of choice and additional relief may gain their loyalty.

So what to offer? If you like to test the water before jumping in, start small. A small investment with solid returns sounds like a good place to start right? Check out Eco Fin. This all natural hydrating treatment is an alternative to paraffin. Many people with chronic pain have had, or are at least familiar with paraffin (especially clients who went through physical therapy for an injury), making it an easy conversation. The starter kit is all you need to test the waters. At $1.60 per treatment cost, if you only offered the service for $10.00, you don't need a calculator to see how profitable it is! 

For those who run full speed and cannon ball in, how about cupping? Phenomenal for chronic pain, professional and Olympic athletes go for treatments regularly to improve and recover. Cupping has been shown to help release adhesions, scar tissue, relax muscles in spasm, decrease trigger point pain, lymphatic drainage, decrease tissue changes and inflammation. 

Give us a call, send an email (christine@purespadirect.com to reach me directly), or come find us on live chat for more ideas and ways to ease your clients pain and maximize profit potential!

Salt vs Sugar Scrubs

Aside from the obvious difference, do your clients know which would be better for their skin? Clients may not always know the same information we think they do, and could be using the wrong product for their skin type or dermatological concerns.

While both exfoliate the skin, sugar tends to be less abrasive, making it preferable for clients with sensitive skin and gentler for use on the face or newly waxed skin. Sugar scrubs also tend to be more hydrating for the skin.

Salt scrubs are more abrasive, which makes them excellent for exfoliating before body treatments, are great for reducing inflammation and since salt is known for antibacterial properties, making it good for acne.

From back bar to retail sizing, we've got effective, profitable and great smelling options for both salt and sugar so you can customize for your clients!

Hot Oil Massage? Yes Please!

Maybe it's the weather here in NY starting to get a bit colder, all I can think of is getting a massage from a therapist who uses warm oil or lotion.  It struck me, even as a massage therapist, that my brain automatically went to thinking of therapists who warm their oil, rather than just thinking "I'm going to get a massage".

Something as simple as a bottle warmer can make the difference for your clients. You don't necessarily have to use it with every client, if you aren't a fan of working with warmed oil/lotion. Having it as an option however, may be a great investment. It may just be the tipping point for clients choosing your services or your competitor.

There are many options and styles to choose from to fit any budget!

Product Of The Week: Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads

Happy Friday!

Now that cold and flu season has been hitting areas hard, do you have any items on hand to ease congestion?

Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads are an excellent, effective and affordable item everyone should have at their retail counter this season. We had a bottle here in the office and I purchased one as a gift for my mother last year - amazing!  A year later, and my mother still talks about how these helped clear her head.

These powerful little beads are full of eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass to easy congestion and boost the stuffiest of moods. They come with a cute little pouch to fill with the beads making inhalation easy and portable.  You don't have to fill the pouch up completely as a little can go a long way, depending on the level of congestion.

Did I mention these are only $5.50 each? Have a tester bottle nearby, offer it to clients to try or try it on them during a service if they are congested! Retailing at $10.00 makes it appealing to clients as well, especially once they've had a chance to smell (and feel!) how great this is.

These make great impulse item purchases, gifts and you can easily use them as an add on "boost"!

When a client mentions they are getting ready to leave, are currently travelling or just got back from travelling - you have a perfect transition to retail.

They will be appreciative of your care, which will lead into increased retail sales.

You can opt to go with kits packaged by the manufacturers, make your own kits ahead of time to match your business, or have something like a "choose your own kit". For that kit, pick however many items you select for the from for the client to fill a travel cosmetic bag. You can even tier it with a small, medium and large bag, whatever works best for you!

Here are some of favorites of clients of ours from across the world:




Some client favorites for individual items to create your own:
