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!

The Heating Pad To End All Heating Pads

I may have a slight addiction to heating pads, packs, etc. I even have the microwavable booties to ensure total warmth. I was ridiculously excited to see one of our newest additions this week, Dr. Bob's Neck Wrap Heating Pad.

Finally, a heating pad that covers the shoulders, goes all the way up the back of the neck, AND wraps all the way to the front to reach the chest muscles!

This is excellent for retailing to clients, as well as an awesome treat for clients during treatments. I would absolutely recommend a business to the world if I was getting a service and they offered me this!

Always remember, it may be something little that makes all the difference to your clients!

Warm Up Your Clients With Detoxifying Ginger

It's a cold rainy day here in New York, a perfect day to dream of far away warm places. Here is a great warming, detoxifying body wrap going into the fall/winter season. This soothing and detoxifying wrap will help tighten and tone skin while leaving the client feeling uplifted!


Ginger Rose Body Wrap
-This treatment includes a rub, oil and moisturizer-

Body Rub:
Crush up 1 T of rose petals in a mortar and pestle. In a medium rubber mixing bowl, mix 3 T shea butter, 1/2 t rose hips powder, 1/2 t clove powder, 1/2 t ginger powder and the rose petals. Add in 2 drops ginger essential oil and 10 drops mandarin essential oil and mix well. Place the bowl into a hot towel cabi, mud warmer or stainless bowl filled with hot water.

Facial Massage Oil:
Mix 5 drops mandarin essential oil with 1 t coconut oil, blend well.

Moisturizer:
In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 2 T coconut butter, 1 drop ginger essential oil and 8 drops mandarin essential oil, mix well and place in a warmer.

After dry brushing the client, apply the body rub starting at the feet. Continue as you normally apply your body wraps and allow the client to rest for 15-20 minutes. While they are resting with the body wrap on, perform a facial and scalp massage with the massage oil. Remove the wrap using your vichy shower, regular shower or remove with warm moist towels to remove the remaining product. Finish off with the ginger moisturizer to lock everything in!

Warm Your Client's Spirits With Benzoin Oil!

The cooler months are rapidly approaching and clients will be dreaming of the recent warm times!

A great, often overlooked essential oil to add to your arsenal is Benzoin Oil. Benzoin has a warming, uplifting and soothing effect which makes it awesome in cooler months.


Here are a few of the ways to incorporate this on to your menu:

Since eucalyptus and peppermint are the commonly used oils for cooler months, adding Benzoin to your menu is a great product that will make your treatments really stand out!

Warm Up As The Weather Cools Off

Fall is quickly approaching, which means the weather is going to start getting cooler in many areas. A great way to market on the weather changes is by offering seasonal menu items. One of my favorites is ginger. Ginger is a great warming herb which is always a nice treat as the weather cools off.

Ginger is also a great ingredient for skin care due to its anti-aging properties---as I've said before, who doesn't want to look younger?!?

Ginger also has great anti-inflammatory properties as well! There are many articles floating around the internet praising the benefits of ginger, but the best way to understand it is by trying it for yourself!

Here are some great products you can add to your service menu to utilize ginger:

SPA PANTRY Ginger Root Powder / 1 Lb.

Soothing TouchBrown Sugar Scrub / Mango Ginger

Organic Ginger Root / 1 Lb. by Body Concepts

Detoxifying Ginger Mask

As in many of my other posts, I'm a huge fan of ingredient themes. Here are some great little additions you can offer to go along with ginger treatments either as a thank you or as an add on. I know some business owners who offer a particular mask for price, each individual complimentary item for an additional price and  finally a package for a more expensive price that includes everything or a pick and choose product option to customize the package.

Here are some additional items that can be used in packages and/or retailed to clients:

Ginger Tea

Ginger Essential Oils

Ginger Candles

Organic Candy Drops - Ginger Zest 

Organic Lollipops - Ginger Zest 

Seasonal menu items are always a big hit in every niche in the industry and are a great way to increase profits and get clients to try new treatments!
