Rejuvenate with Cocoa

The holiday season is here, and I am already thinking about Valentines Day. Try adding a little chocolate touch to your treatments, while rejuvenating the skin!

Check out this awesome peel off Cocoa Rejuvenating Peel Off Mask by Pourelle Cosmetics!

This mask has been designed to fit the exact shape of the face, so it is effective and super comfortable for your clients. This cocoa mask derives its special properties from the combined action of
ingredients, intended for mature skins.

Nature of the Product:
The mask is a marine complex based on alginates extracted from kelp that give it its natural plasticity. Simply mix with water and it quickly gels.
The formulation has the special physic-chemical and biological properties of alginates that give the mask its smoothness and make the skin so soft.

The Peel Off Rejuvenating Mask has an action that aims at rejuvenating the skin by means of its active ingredients.

The polyphones and vitamin A are powerful antioxidants that neutralize free radicals and slow the effects of aging. The tannins, because of their astringent and tonic properties, bring back firmness to the epidermis.

Cocoa has moisturizing properties that are essential for preventing wrinkle formation. The skin's protective film is reconstituted, and its glow is restored.

Massage Oil: Warm or Cold?

Personally, the feeling of warmed massage oil is one of my favorite things. As a massage therapist with perpetually cold hands, having warmed oil was a need. There is nothing worse for a therapist and the client, than a cold hand to start the massage. It's startling to the client and kills the relaxation process before it starts.

Something as simple as an bottle warmer like the ProMaster Massage Oil & Lotion Warmer can make all the difference in the world clients. Even if you don't suffer from cold hands, many clients will simply love the feel of warm oil on their skin!

Client Comfort: Eye Masks

It's no secret client comfort is key. You've put time, money and thought into everything from the treatment tables to the aromatherapy choices in your space. It's also no secret that it is the little things that can have a drastic impact on client satisfaction. Something seemingly small can be what makes a client stick with you over your competition and you may never even know.
While herbal eye masks are generally thought of as a comfort or "nice touch" to offer with services, for a person with light sensitivity or eye issues/discomfort, it can be a game changer. For less than a dollar, you can offer something like the Satin Eye Mask by Scalpmaster for a client to use during many different services (some you may not even think necessary to offer!) and you may just be taking the service to a level you never dreamed for that client. They may feel awkward or uncomfortable making a request for a "sleep mask" or not know it could be an option. You don't even need to go into anything more than "would you like an eye mask for added comfort and relaxation?" to give them an option!

Cold Hands and Your Sales

As a perpetually cold person, having someone touch my skin with cold hands is startling and uncomfortable.

Any time I received a massage and the therapist had cold hands, that was the last time I went there. Harsh, I know, but true. That initial jolt of cold when the opening effleurage started, would amp every nerve in my body up and I would spend the rest of the time trying to get back to a relaxed state. It ruined the massage for me.

Do you have clients who are sensitive to cold? Are your clients coming in for any sort of treatment that may cause relaxation? Do you simply want to provide the most comfortable and memorable experience for each of your clients?

Bottle warmers are such an easy and effective way to keep lotions and oils at the perfect temperature to have your clients breathing sighs of relief the moment it hits their skin. From single bottle warmers all the way up to four bottle capacity, you'll always be ready to go.

Bubbling Bath Salts!

Clients can experience the best of both bath worlds at once - bubble bath and bath salts! I am a huge fan of salt baths and bath bombs as are many other "shoppers" out there. Are you currently retailing bath products to clients?

Kneipp Bubbling Mineral Bath Salts can be just the summer boost to those retail sales! Kneipp products contain plant-based functional ingredients. No paraffin, silicone, mineral oils, or animal testing, are dermatologist tested and recommended!

Migraine and Headache Awareness Month

June is national migraine and headache awareness month and a great opportunity for nearly any business!

Many clients are on the lookout for natural products, treatments and solutions putting you in a great position to offer an alternative to over the counter headache medicine. Something as simple as offering scalp massage or an essential oil designed for headaches, can be the alternative your client hadn't yet thought of! Booking time in a relaxation room as a 'headache blaster packages" where clients can choose from various services (or just ala carte add ons to make their own quiet time perfect!) in a comfortable relaxation chair. From low lights, optional soft music, personalized aroma scalp massages, ice or heat therapy- so many possibilities to make it your own!

Take it even further with headache retail packages! From essential oils and diffusers to magic globes (amazing for sinus pressure!) and relaxing eye masks - talk to your clients and see what causes their headaches and recommend an easy at home treatment - the moment they feel relief, they may be hooked!

Product Of The Week: GranFontana Gemstone Wellness Decanter

If presentation and appearance are something you are concerned with for your guests, attention to detail is key. Having a beautiful relaxation room or waiting area is a vital way of impressing clients as soon as they walk in. To really tie in the luxury experience, the GranFontana Gemstone Wellness Decanter Set is a stunning way to offer beverages while keeping the high-end presentation.

Holding 5 liters of water, the GranFontana is not your typical water jug. This beautiful set comes with the glass 5-liter water decanter with spigot, glass and steel stand and the VitaJuwel Gem Water Gemstone Wand - Wellness: Rose Quartz + Amethyst + Rock Crystal. 

Aside from being stunning and a great conversation set, VitaJuwel is the most hygienic and efficient method to prepare gem water. You just place the vial in drinking water for 7-10 minutes and enjoy gemwater, the true elixir of life! Using gems to vitalize water is an age-old tradition, dating back to ancient Greece and medieval times. Gems have the ability to store an energy that inspirits the surrounding drinking water, making it more lively and enjoyable. The gems don't have to physically contact the water. The glass vial acts like a natural prism for the crystal's radiant energy. Like in the natural cycle of water, with VitaJuwel the natural element stone regenerates the natural element water.

You've put so much thought and focus on your space, the furniture, scents, and feel, why not have every detail reflect it!

New Year, New Signatures!

While many of your clients may be coming in for the "new year, new you" passion, what are you doing new, as a business?

Has your signature treatment been your most popular this last year? If not, it may be time to reinvent your signature. Whether it be a new scent added to the space or into treatments, or an entire new color or theme, when was the last time you had something completely fresh and new to excite them?

For those looking for big drastic changes to get their clients attention at the door, how about new reception furniture, fire or water features or a relaxation room?

For more subtle transformation, how about placing diffusers around with one specific scent (or blend), adding complimentary Voesh or Eco Fin treatments for clients who purchase packages?

If you want to revive clients eyes, how about adding a splash or color (or new color), with linens? From sheets and blankets to robes and slippers - even mag lamps, your clients will notice!
