Float Away Into Ultimate Relaxation

What if you could bring peace and relaxation to your clients like they have never experienced before? Now you can with floatation therapy. Imagine where the mind could go and how healing would come if one could completely quiet the body. In a Royal Spa Float Tank, clients are treated to an amazing weightless experience. Clients can learn how to relax in the deepest sense of the word... weightless, silent, and peaceful.

In water temperatures that match the body's own internal temperature, clients float, suspended in a rich bath of Epsom salt (or magnesium sulfate) - a mineral of which nearly all people are deficient. As they float, clients absorb and increase magnesium and sulfate levels, calming their nervous system and enhancing their body's natural ability to heal. Aches, pains, and stress fade away. Vitality is renewed. Clients will emerge feeling like a new person. Floating is a powerful tool for managing pain and stress, and for self-exploration.

The Royal Spa Float Tanks have been designed with three things in mind. First, they offer your clients an amazing experience from floatation therapy that they will want to come back for on a regular basis. Second, their tanks are unbelievably low in maintenance. And third, they are very energy efficient.

Flotation therapy has been shown to be beneficial for:
  • Migraine relief
  • Sleep improvement
  • Stress management, recovery from addiction, and PTSD
  • Anti-inflammatory muscle relief - i.e. pain management, including back and neck aches, migraines, muscle and joint soreness
  • Relief from fibromyalgia and other disorders of the muscles and joints
  • Relief from arthritis
  • Improved digestion
  • Reduced tendency toward diabetes
  • Autism therapy
  • Spiritual discovery and meditation
  • Doubles rate of healing in contusional and muscle strains
  • Theta wave healing
  • Creativity enhancement and super-learning
  • Relief for pregnancy symptoms—relieves pressure from feet and back; also, creates symbiotic sense of connection with baby
Much like exercise, the benefits of floatation are cumulative and have a greater impact on the mind and body over time. Once the benefits are experienced, many want to float routinely to continually enhance and support their well-being. You can offer reduced package prices to help accommodate your guests who want float more often.

Post Holiday Stress Relief!

It's no surprise that people are feeling the stress of the holidays. From running around getting gifts and/or cooking supplies (finding parking!) to holiday travelling...there's no shortage of stress related aches, pains and worn out nerves!

Here are two perfect massage oils for soothing your clients holiday stress!

Option 1:
In a dark (amber or blue work great!) glass bottle, mix 3 drops of rosemary essential oil and 3 drops of cinnamon essential oil with 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil or any carrier oil you prefer (coconut oil is always a best seller!). Put the lid on the bottle and shake well. It's as easy as that!

Option 2:
In a dark bottle, mix 4 drops of spruce essential oil, 3 drops of eucalyptus oil with 1/4 cup of carrier oil. Put the lid on and mix well. This is a super popular mix this time of year!

Give the client any excess oil in a smaller new glass bottle to take home as an added little touch!

Ancient Healing with Ayurveda

Are you looking to intrigue your clients by adding a brand new service to your spa? One that enriches the mind and brings emotional balance? How about one that dates back nearly 5,000 years ago?!

Incorporate the ritualistic healing of Shirodhara into your spa, which stems from Ayurveda, an ancient natural healing process from India. Here at Pure Spa Direct, we offer a plethora of products from Ajara Ayurvedic Beauty to help you facilitate this treatment!

What exactly IS Shirodhara?

Shirodhara is a form of therapy that involves gently pouring various liquids over the forehead for relaxation purposes. Think of it as a massage for the mind! The term actually stems from the sanskirt words shiro, which means head and dhara, which means flow. Aside from completely relaxing your client, this therapeutic process is also said to rejuvenate the face, as well as relieve anxiety, depression, and insomnia through natural serotonin, dopamine, and melatonin release. It can also help synchronize alpha brain waves, enhancing blood circulation to the brain to improve mental clarity. Now that's my type of treatment!

And how is this all even possible?! Take a look below at our various Ayurveda products and see how they work:



To get started, check out the Copper Shirodhara Stand, which comes complete with everything you need to introduce your spa to this new treatment! This is the traditional system for giving a shirodhara. Fully hands on, the flow of oil comes from the copper pot, onto the person's third eye, down the hair and vinyl strip, and into the warming pan, where the flow continues with the shirodhara therapist re-pouring the warmed oil back into the copper vessel. While this method requires skill and an ability to quiet one's own mind, it is the most energetically positive way to give a shirodhara treatment.
This treatment requires oil, so to get started, this all natural Shirodhara Oil is your best bet. The natural conditioners from organic sesame and sunflower oil, as well as several herbs to calm the senses, make this oil perfect for a deeply soothing treatment.
To complete your treatment, you are definitely going to need a pair of these gloves! These Raw Silk Garshana Gloves are washable and reusable, and come in a handy carrying pouch. Perfect for your treatment!
Is your spa completely brand new to this treatment? Educate your workers on this ancient healing method with this informative Ayurvedic Spa Treatments DVD. It is great for teaching your technicians on how to evaluate their clients and perform a variety of Ayurvedic treatments!

Relax With Lavender

Lavender is perfect for de-stressing!

Lavender is one of the most popular aromatic scents in spa settings, and for good reason! On top of it smelling lovely, it is highly effective at relieving stress and calming down the central nervous system.

Lavender is a flowering plant cultivated in temperate climates as decorative use for gardens and landscapes. Most recently, it is commonly used as an essential oil once extracted. On top of calming and relieving tension, the scent can also be used to aide sleep and as an antiseptic oil for skin. No wonder its a favorite! It's soft purple color has also been popular in trends lately. From nail polish to hair dye, it doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon, especially with the warmer months coming up!

We here at Pure Spa Direct offer a variety of lavender products. From it's purest essential oil form all the way to lavender colored hair chalk, see below for some of my favorites!...

People's feet take a daily beating, no matter what industry you work in.

Flip flops, barefoot walks, sand & surf...our feet go through even more stress during the summer months, and could use some extra love!



Here is an awesome recipe for a Lavender & Sage Softening Foot Treatment that will leave your client's skin baby soft!

Soak client's feet in your favorite pedicure bowl/pedicure spa
Follow by adding a few drops of Clarly Sage Essential Oil and Lavender Essential Oil / by Now to a bowl of Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub by Extended Vacation. Slowly massage the scrub into the feet for a few minutes, then remove with warm towels (make sure you have enough fresh clean towels on hand!).You can also rinse them off in the pedicure bowl, or use a spray bottle with warm water and towels. Once clean and dry, massage the feet using Lavender /Orange/Clary Sage by Biotone and follow with your regular pedicure procedure.
