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 Lotion....Yes, Please!

Maybe it's the snow and sleet falling outside my window, but my brain is occupied with all things warm right now.

When you have a client all nice and comfortable on your table, ready to melt away from the massage you are about to give, the last thing you want is to shock them with cold lotion. If the lotion is colder than their body temperature, at the very least it's going to startle them...which could slow and even prevent full relaxation.

Why chance it when you can get a lotion warmer?!?

Seriously, who doesn't like warm lotion in the winter?

There are warmers that hold from 1-5 bottles at a time so you never have to worry about having cold lotion again!

Check out the most popular ones:

Neo-Spa Bottle Warmer
Stainless Steel Bottle Warmers 
Pure-Gel 3 Bottle Electric Lotion Warmer 
Pure-Gel 5 Bottle Electric Lotion Warmer
Electric Lotion Warmer 
Electric Lotion Warmer Holds 2- 8oz Bottle
Electric Lotion Warmer Holds 3 - 8 oz. Bottles
Electric Lotion Warmer Holds 4 - 8 oz. Bottles


Don't shock your client's into only coming in when it's warm!!! Have warm lotion ready to help them melt away at your fingertips!

Happy Feet!!!

Everyone's feet get tired...every day...regardless of who you are or what you do all day (unless of course you're a couch potato and I will post about that another day!)

If you stop to really think about how much we put our feet through it's amazing how resilient they are!
Does your business offer any special foot treatments? Do you have exciting and trendy add on services to compliment your regular pedicures?

There was an article a while back about infusing foot treatments with new life and excitement that had some interesting facts about our feet. Check it out here . In the article, the author mentions marketing treatments to attract particular clients. One was the "High Heel Helper" while the other was a "Holiday Shopper Foot Treatment" which the latter is perfect to spin this time of year.

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!
