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"!

Head Off Dry Winter Skin Through Retail

In a perfect world, every client would be able to come see you on a regular schedule to address any and all skin concerns. Time and money get in the way of that so having seasonal "go to" retail products can be successful.  Depending on where you live, dry winter skin can be a challenge for many of your clients.

Farmaesthetics Herbal Hydration Complex - Remedy Reserve Mask makes an excellent addition to any retail line up. Aside from being awarded the best "5 Minute Complexion Makeover", this 100% natural mask is great for any skin type. From calming irritations to being touted as a great hangover recovery mask (perfect for holiday party season!) your clients can use this to maintain moisture levels between services and for repairing.

The size and packaging makes it great for gifts for family, friends, coworkers and makes a great travel companion for your on the go clients!

Slim Down As The Year Winds Down

I still cannot believe we're already into October, this year is flying by!

Detox and slimming treatments are always trending, however the end of the year always shows a big push in detox services. Clients want to look their absolute best for events, parties and reunions.

If you're looking to add something new to your body wraps, here is an extremely profitable recipe idea, to have your clients feeling bright and tight!

Slim It Down!

In large rubber mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup of green tea powder with 1 teaspoon of borage oil. After mixing well, add in 3/4 cup of dead sea mud and 2 teaspoons of grapeseed oil. Mix this all up well, and place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or even a large stainless bowl filled with hot water. You want the mixture to be warm when applying to the client.

Perform the body wrap as you normally would, along with any add ons like dry brushing, Eco Fin or a scalp massage. Add on services are a great way to further boost profits and increase clients satisfaction!

Fall Menu Secret Weapon: Clove Essential Oil

We all know that pumpkin and cranberry are the sought after fall scents, flavor and menu items. If you are looking for a little something different to infuse some fall menu, take a look at clove essential oil.

Personally, the smell of clove always has a warm, comfort feeling to it. That little spice in fall foods that adds that something extra.  As an essential oil, it can bring about comforting memories or feelings of warmth,comfort and peace making it an excellent choice to add in to everything from massage oils, aromatherapy showers to pedicures.

It also blends well with citrus scents and not a lot is needed to achieve the full effect!

Transitioning To Fall and Winter!

We've been speaking with many clients the last few weeks about their fall menus as well as the upcoming holiday season. While it may seem far off, it will be here before you know it!

Here is one of my all time favorite recipe combinations for the fall and/or winter season that can be used in a multitude of services:

Cinnamon Comfort (or whatever name you'd like to use!)
To start off, create the mood. Fill a diffuser with water and add in the following essential oils: 2 drops of Clove, 5 drops of Cinnamon, and 4 drops of Ginger -  for every ounce of water.

For massages, mani/pedi treatments etc, you can make the following massage oil, cream or lotion:

In a mixing bowl,  mix 4 oz. of unscented oil, cream, or lotion with the following essential oils:  1 drop of Clove, 3 drops of Cinnamon, and 2 drops of Ginger and mix well.

For a cinn-ful body scrub/polish:
In a mixing bowl, mix 8 oz. of unscented salt or sugar with 4 tablespoons of a carrier oil and mix well.  Add in the following essential oils: 5 drops of Clove, 10 drops of Cinnamon, and 5 drops of Ginger.

Very easy to make and use - you can even get sample jars or bottles to give your clients any extra to take home!

Stop And Smell The Flowers While Boosting Business!

We've all heard some variation of "stop to smell the roses" at some point in time. While it usually refers to slowing down or being more aware to appreciate things, it can be beneficial for your business.

What flower menu options do you have? Are they customizable?
Offering services that utilize flower power (I tried to resist, I really did!) in some way is always popular with clients! Making it customizable is a way to stand out from your competition. Having a raw ingredient bar for clients is also a fun way to engage clients.
If you offer hydrotherapy, do you offer muslin bags to drop in (complimentary or as an add on!) that are filled with flowers and raw ingredients? Again, having clients choose their own (you can have a set of pre-filled ones -like these or make your own-to choose from or give them an empty muslin bag and send them to the raw bar!) will get clients talking (to you AND their friends/family/coworkers), increase likelihood of add on and retail sales.

When was the last time you changed the floral options?
Is lavender or rose the only scent you have (if your business is tied in to lavender or rose in any way, disregard!)? Your clients may be getting tired of the same old smells. Refresh their senses with some new scents. There are enough varieties out there to ensure you'll never get bored of them all. You can choose from individual oils or blends or even candles! Variety is key here, you never want your clients to be bored or complacent - you want them excited to see what's new every time they walk in your door.

With all this fresh new floral activity freshening up your menu and environment, your reawakened clients will be eager to try new things, buy more things and tell more people how awesome you are. As I have mentioned numerous times, it's the little things :)

Delicious Services For Spring: Papaya Facials!


Though papayas are technically available all year long, this delicious fruit tends to peak in the early summer. Get ahead of the curve, and start incorporating papaya facials and other services into your spa right before summer starts! Papayas contain many components that are good for the skin to help keep it healthy looking. Along with the Papain enzymes, it is good a source of antioxidants and nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B, carotenes, and flavonoids, fiber and minerals like magnesium and potassium which are all great for maintaining skin health!

Not sure where to begin? We have an amazing Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque by June Jacobs that you can incorporate into facials! This clarifying enzyme masque contains a highly effective combination of papaya’s natural fruit enzyme, papain, with extracts of mango and pineapple, to gently dissolve dead surface impurities allowing nourishing oils of sweet almond and borage seed to penetrate, improving tone and elasticity of the skin. It also smells amazingly delicious, and I'm sure you're clients will love it! I also highly recommend our June Jacobs Papaya Enzyme Facial Treatment Kit - it includes everything you need to get started with your papaya facials. Be sure to order it just in time for early summer :)

Merry Massages!

With the holiday season upon us, everyone is stressed about something new. Whether it be busier at work, gift giving stress, party stress or just end of the year crunch time stress - it can take a toll on our bodies. If you haven't gotten your holiday menu up and running, or are looking to add something new in just before the end of the month, here's a massage idea to help each tired, aching muscles and frazzled nerves!



On this one, you can customize or give your clients the option of which aromatherapy blend they want.

In a glass bottle, mix together one of the following and shake to mix:

3 drops rosemary essential oil
3 drops cinnamon essential oil

or

4 drops spruce essential oil
3 drops eucalyptus essential oil

Add the essential oil blend to 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil and mix well.

It's as easy as that!

You can also make more of the massage oil blend to give to your clients to take home. Check out all of the different sample jars.

New Mineral Baths From Keyano In Time For The Holidays!

Just in time for the holidays, the Keyano Mani/Pedi Minreal Bath is sure to be a successful addition to your winter menu.

If you are looking to stick to the traditional holiday scents, check out the pumpkin, pomegranate, cranberry and of course peppermint. If you are looking to mix it up, try a mango or coconut lime!

As with all of the other Keyano products, the scents are amazing (coconut lime is a best seller and the peppermint reminds me of the old Peppermint Patty commercials!)

Not to be outdone by the fragrances, these are excellent for softening skin, getting rid of fungus and strengthening nails.
