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!

Clients With Pain? Biofreeze To The Rescue!

I know many people these days (especially with the cooler weather approaching in many places) who experience muscle pain regularly. From their regular daily activities to injuries and plain old getting older, muscle pain is no joke!

When your clients come in for services (not just massages!) are you addressing their muscle pains in any way? If they aren't coming in for massage and noting they're in pain  - perfect time to offer massage! If you don't offer massage, you can still help them by retailing one of our best selling pain relief lines!

Biofreeze is a great product for use in services AND amazing to retail! I carry a roll on with my at all time - it works better than anything I've tried! Available in gravity packs, tubes, rolls, sprays and pump sizes for back bar use!

Back To School Stress!

Now that most, if not all schools have started back up, some parents have a little extra free time during the day, or are back to regular work schedules. Those back to regular schedules can start to feel like they are running all over the place.

The before school morning rush getting the kid(s) up and out the door while attempting to get themselves ready for work can be similar to a circus. The commute to work during the school year seems to take twice as long - hullo stress! After work many parents are off to practice, games, and other various after school programs - don't forget play dates! Throw in the usual every day things like cleaning, cooking, helping with homework and a variety of other tasks - many parents are always on the "go, go, GO" time schedule.

Have you thought about marketing specifically to those types of clients? Have a back to school special for parents! You can have set days/times to offer super relaxing treatments - with no kids allowed! Heck, even have a quiet room where guests can relax in comfy chairs (like the Loafah Chaise + Spa-Massage Treatment Table) with dim lighting (led candles!), soft music and relaxing teas or cucumber water (the Vitajuwel Decanter Set is the way to go!)to just enjoy some uninterrupted quiet time. Sometimes that is all a parent needs to recharge for the day, week, month!

Not sure where to start? Take a look at some all time favorites among our clients to really push relaxation to the next level:

Curved Japanese Bamboo Lounge Chair
Reclining Reflexology Chair 
Breath Lounge Relaxation Lounge
Aqua Thermassage Tables
Vitajuwel - these are a great unique addition to your decor and make an excellent retail item!
Ultimate ZZZZs Silk Sleep Mask - I have this, it's amazing!

Since many parents may not have all that much time to spare, having a room or area where they don't need to change or spend an hour or day to relax will make it that much more appealing!

June is National Migraine Awareness Month!

June is National Migraine Awareness Month and as a migraine sufferer, having a business or therapist that has the right tools to help, is a lifesaver!

From the throbbing head pain, stiff/sore neck, and nausea to name are just some of the most common headache issues that you can help your clients with.

Here are a few of our best selling headache and migraine relief items to help you alleviate your clients pain!

Miracle Migraine Aromatherapy - I use one of these blends and it worked so well that I carry it in my bag along with my Biofreeze roll on. You never know when a migraine will hit so be sure to retail these!

Core Headache Ice Pillow - another item I use when any type of headache hits. The unique design allows the cold to hit right under the base of the skull!

Therapearl Hot & Cold - Eye-ssential Pack / Blue

Cold Stones and Hot Stones - ask your clients what helps them! For me, cold always helps but for some, heat could do the trick!

Ginger or Peppermint Tea for nausea

Epsom Salt - sometimes a hot bath with epsom salts can calm everything down!

Advertising migraine specials in June is a great way to bring in new clients, have clients try something new and give you the opportunity to have a huge impact on your clients life, that they may not have known you could help with!

Massage For Allergies

With the change in seasons and sometimes chaotic weather changes, many people suffer from allergies. From itchy eyes and sneezing to headaches and full body aches, allergies can make people all around miserable.

Are you marketing your massage services to allergy sufferers? Massage is excellent for helping people deal with their allergy symptoms yet most people aren't aware of this! This is where we as massage therapists come in to educate them!

Massage is excellent at treating headaches, body pains, it boost circulation and reduce stress. It's a big circle, the symptoms are stressing the client out which is making them focus on the symptoms, making them worse. If you calm the client while easing their symptoms, the body can focus on dealing with the histamines.

Something as simple as posting a brochure or sign about your allergy relieving treatment will have clients calling to get their session in asap!

Here are some awesome relaxing and clearing essential oils to incorporate into the treatment:

Essential Oil Blend - Clear the Air
Eucalyptus Oils
Peppermint Essential Oil
Lavender Essential Oil
Lemon Essential Oil

Be creative and blend up your own mixes to add into your favorite carrier oil for a clearing facial massage!

Be sure to have extra bottles of essential oils on hand to retail to your clients!

Also, check out the Aroma Pen...perfect to retail with the oils for your clients to have instant on-the-go relief!

What's That You Hear? Ultrasounds!!!!

If you haven't experienced an ultrasound treatment, you must go this week and have a treatment done. Why should you as a business owner, technician or office worker rush out to get one? Aside from immediate relief of any pain you may be experiencing ( I don't know anyone who has zero muscle pain) you will see first hand how a small unit can bring in money.

Many people think of ultrasound as a physical therapy tool or simply of the picture an expectant parent shows off. While both are accurate, those aren't the only people who can benefit from it

My chiropractor has a unit that has both the ultrasound and the stim which I literally crave every week. It helps alleviate my neck pain and feels wonderful.

From a business standpoint, the units are cost effective and can bring in a whole new stream of business.
From a therapist/technician standpoint, it is an easy treatment to perform. The unit does the work and you check in with the client about the pressure and the intensity.
From a client standpoint, there's no downside. It is effective and feels good.
It's a winning combination all around.

There are different units available, here are a few:

Amrex U/20l Portable Ultrasound 
Chattanooga Intelect Transport Ultrasound Unit 
Intelect Legend Ultrasound 

You do need to use a gel while performing the treatment, which you can look at here:

Ultrasound Gel

My chiropractor always ends the ultrasound by putting one of my all time favorite products on...

Biofreeze

If you are looking to add a new treatment that is not difficult to perform, make your clients happy and bring in cash flow...ultrasound is worth checking out.

Easing Your Clients' Allergies and Increasing Profit!!!

Depending on where you live, you may have noticed more and more people sneezing and rubbing their eyes. The dreaded allergy season is upon many of us here and it's driving everyone nuts!

A great way to increase revenue is by simply offering an allergy season add-on to your current treatment menu.

Essential oils are an extremely cost effective way to provide additional benefits to your clients especially those suffering from allergies.

The following essential oils are great for providing much needed relief from itchy watery eyes, sneezing and congestion:

ESS Globulus Eucalyptus Pure Essential Oil 
Eucalyptus is a great multipurpose oil that has been shown to have anti inflammatory properties. It works wonders on congestion, headaches and aids in breathing.

ESS Peppermint Pure Essential Oil 
Peppermint is also great for opening up the sinuses and easing headaches.

ESS® Pure Essential Lemon Oil 
Lemon is particularly good for beating those winter blues and helping clear out allergy issues. It also has antibacterial properties!

ESS® Cypress Pure Essential Oil 
This lesser known oil is amazing for chest ailments to help ease breathing and suppress coughing fits.


If you are looking for one big allergy blend to either market within an existing facial or to make a great allergy massage oil, mix lavender, lemon and peppermint! It creates an amazing aroma that may produce instant relief for allergy symptoms!

The possibilities to incorporate and market an allergy relief special can be as unique as you and your business are! Once your clients feel the added benefit of these oils you can also retail the oils!
