Winter Warm Up with these Simple Add on's

It's all about the details. It's freezing in New York and all I can think about is being warm and cozy! What are you doing to set your business apart from your competitors?

Here are some simple, cost-effective ways to customize your services for winter

Copper Pedicure Bowl - Hand Hammered 
Offer a warm foot soak before, after, or during a treatment. Infuse the water with essential oils and
rose petals for ultimate relaxation.

Add a Kozi Neck & Shoulder Wrap to any manicure or pedicure service. Simply heat in the microwave first!
This ultra soft shoulder wrap is designed to cover the contours of the neck and shoulders. Perfect for soothing tight, tired muscles, it will stay in place while your client walks, stands, or sits. Aromatherapy benefits are increased when it is heated.

Offer an upgraded service with Hot Massage Stones - 45 Stone Holistic Facial Package With Heater. The perfect add-on to a massage, facial, pedicure, manicure, and much more!
For centuries, basalt hot stones have been used for massage to remove stress, induce relaxation, and promote well-being. For optimum results, heat stones to a temperature of 125°F to 150°F using our specially designed hot stone heater. Once hot, stones will retain their temperatures for up to 45 minutes.

Soothe aching muscles by adding Sacred Earth Botanicals Massage Lotion - Warming.
Another high-quality product from SacredEarth Botanicals. This warming massage lotion uses organic cinnamon oil and organic menthol crystals to create a gentle heating sensation. It is excellent for soothing achy muscles and helping to facilitate blood flow. It can be used during the course of a massage or as a spot treatment. 

Offer season robes and blankets for your client's comfort. Take a look at the Sposh Chelour Robe or the Sposh Chelour Throw! For the ultimate luxury, use this cozy Sposh Chelour Throw for the bottom and/or top sheets on the treatment table. Clients will love this throw so much that they’ll have to have one (or more) at home!

Finish up a facial treatment with the Warm Clay and Algae Masque Kit.
Warm Clay and Algae Masque Kit includes Mini-Mud Warmer, 100 ml Clay Masque, 100 ml Algae Masque, 10 Disposable Cups and 10 Applicator Sticks.

Be Memorable!

Do your clients refer to you for one specific reason aside from, "the place I get my facials"?

Do they refer to you as "XYZ, they have this amazing Caviar Facial that is unlike any other!?

Big difference there. Do you have a signature? If you do, what sets it apart from anything they can get down the block, or next town over?

Be the place that smells like warm vanilla when you walk in, that offers a signature Cinnamon & Clove scrub in the winter, that is to die for!

Be the massage therapist who not only gives a phenomenal massage, but offers a delicious smelling butter rum hand and foot treatment during the winter!

You can have a year round signature, seasonal or whatever works best for your style - just don't forget to see what's new, and how your competition is evolving.

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!

Weathered Hands- This Product has got you Covered.. Literally

Winter weather can wreak havoc on hands. Want to know why? Dr. Jessica Wu explains "Dry skin is especially common in the winter months when the humidity level outside drops. When the air outside is cold and dry, the water in your skin evaporates more quickly; this makes your skin feel dry and tight and makes it look flaky. In fact, your skin loses more than 25 percent of its ability to hold moisture in the winter." (Everyday Health)

You can help your clients and boost your sales at the same time.

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!
