Autumn Is Almost Here!

I am one of those people who is already giddy with all things pumpkin being just around the corner. There are those who say it is way too early to even talk about pumpkin and then there are those of us who wait all year long for it.

Do you change your fall menu options from year to year?  Do you have client favorites that would probably result in a riot if you ever changed it? Now is a good time to think about what you would like to do with your fall menu. It's not yet crunch time where you're risking something you've been wanting to try, yet didn't have time to think on it, and it's now it's now in the season, and unavailable at the last second.

From delicious smelling cinnamon and clove essential oils, pumpkin spice massage oil to pumpkin peels, your fall fans may be drooling at your door. Looking for something a other than the standard pumpkin? Check out the Green Apple Brightening Collagen Mask or If you're not looking to change anything up to the menu, don't forget to think about your space! Some different color linens or towels for the season or even some different organic tea that is delicious!

Detox Body Treatment Time!

Detox and slimming treatments are in full swing across the globe. Here is an effective recipe designed to clean, exfoliate and reduce the appearance of cellulite while drawing out impurities from the skin.

Spring Time Slim Time

In a large rubber mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup of green tea powder with 1 teaspoon of borage oil and mix well. Add in 3/4 cup of dead sea mud and 2 teaspoons of grapeseed oil, and mix well.
Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or large stainless bowl filled with water to keep warm until ready to apply.

It's as easy and quick as that! Prepare the table and client as you normally do for body treatments. You can customize by adding in essential oils as well!

Be sure to have plenty of clean, warm towels on hand to help remove excess. It's a good time of the season to check your inventory of body wrap supplies and retail items as well! Here are some of our client favorites around the world:

Product Of The Week: Disposable Pillows

It may sound odd, however, these hygienic disposable pillows can save you time and money - who doesn't want that?!?

If you run a mobile business, these are game changing. No more lugging additional bolsters or using towels as make shift bolsters. Professional and sanitary, these are easy to inflate/deflate, and won't take up valuable space. Since they're reusable, your client can take them home  if they wish - they make great travel pillows!

Do clients ever ask for additional neck or head support adjustments? Do they ask more than once? Most won't even if they aren't comfortable. They love your services and you, so they suffer in silence. Having a new, clean pillow for your clients will show in a simple way, you're thinking of them.

Just like dingy towels, what do your current options for client comfort say about your business?

Protect Your Investment: Caring for Massage Linens

One of the most important responsibilities you have as a massage therapist is to care for your massage table linens. Linens covering massage tables are unique in their usage, since aside from just covering and protecting your bed, they are splashed and stained with oil on a regular basis. And we all know how much fun it is to remove oil stains!

As a business owner, you want to ensure that you are getting the best wear out of your linens. But how do you effectively remove the stains and prolong the life of your sheets? Follow the below tips to get the most out of your massage linens:

Wash Daily
I know, laundry is not my favorite task either, but in order to effectively remove oil stains from massage table linens, washing daily is crucial. Massage oil often goes rancid quickly, which sets the stain in further, and also makes your linens smell like French Fries after a while...gross! If you are unable to wash daily, store your unwashed linens in black plastic bags (like garbage bags), sealed against air and light to keep any oil residue from going rancid.

Pro Tip: Keep hand towels close by while performing a massage or body treatment to avoid using your linens to wipe off excess oil!

Pre-Soak Stains
As soon as your client leaves your treatment room, inspect your sheets for oil stains (it is easier to check while they are still on the table, rather than once they are bundled up ready to be washed). Treat any stains you find immediately using either your regular linen detergent or a degreaser (such as Dawn dish soap).

Laundry Tips
For badly stained linens, wash twice to remove the oil stains. Wash with warm (not hot) water to avoid setting in stains, and rinse in cold water. If you have stubborn stains, you may want to consider adding bleach or a non-chlorine bleach additive in the second washing to rid the remaining oil from the linens. Our favorite detergent is the Lotus Touch Always Fresh Detergent, which is a professional-strength, biodegradable detergent that has be specifically formulated to break down massage oil stains. This detergent is great for use as a pre-soak for those stubborn stains as well!

Drying Tips
Never dry your sheets in the dryer unless you are sure all oil has been removed! Drying the oil not only sets the stain, making it even more difficult to remove, but it can also be a fire hazard! When drying, throw 2-3 tennis balls in the dryer with your sheets - this will fluff them up and help them dry more evenly. If possible, line dry your sheets to extend their life.

Every salon and spa uses towels every day.
Essentially every salon and spa in the world has a large inventory of towels. There are so many uses for towels in a salon or spa, including removal of product, drying your client, applying warm towels as a relaxation treatment, and more. With so many towels out there, how do you choose which are the best for your purposes?


The newest trend we are seeing when it comes to towels is the use of Microfiber Towels. These towels are generally lighter than traditional towels, microfiber towels can hold up to EIGHT times its weight in water, so you can essentially use a smaller towel than your current towel, while drying more area - EFFICIENT!

Dress Your Clients in Luxury with the Boca Terry Spa Collection!

From the consumer perspective, I think I can speak for everyone by saying that we all enjoy being pampered and getting dressing up in nice and comfortable clothing.

As a service provider, making your clients feel comfortable and relaxed should be the ultimate goal. For that reason, when it comes to spa apparel and accessories you should choose Boca Terry. Known for quality, comfort, and durability at great prices, their wide collection includes an assortment of luxurious Bathrobes, Organic Bathrobes, Wraps, Slippers, Towels, Blankets, Lounge Chair Covers, and Spa Headbands.
When I went to get a massage recently they handed me a microfiber wrap that I fell in love with. I immediately checked the tag and it was the Women's Microfiber Spa Wrap in Ecru by Boca Terry. I have now purchased one for myself, and absolutely adore it!

I highly recommend checking out the Bathrobe Collection for the up-coming Winter months. Having to get undressed can be uncomfortable and chilly, especially if you are like me, and are always cold. If I must remove my clothes, please give me something to snuggle in, and to keep me warm and cozy throughout my entire treatment.

Please remember when purchasing Spa Apparel, to consider purchasing multiple sizes to comfort all body shapes. Check out Adrienne’s blog "One Size Fits All" - The Misconception About Spa and Salon Apparel, which is very helpful on the topic.

*Bonus: Boca Terry items can personalized with your own company logo.
