Body Workers: Clients With Chronic Pain

If you're a body worker, is the bread and butter of your business clients with chronic pain or injury? If so, do you offer massage add ons or a variety of techniques to choose from?

Tiered services other than hot stone and/or aromatherapy seem to be something seasoned body workers shy away from. While making your hour long service a better value than the half hour one, what other ways are you maximizing your profit potential? 

For clients with chronic pain, not only can the variety keep them coming back, the value of choice and additional relief may gain their loyalty.

So what to offer? If you like to test the water before jumping in, start small. A small investment with solid returns sounds like a good place to start right? Check out Eco Fin. This all natural hydrating treatment is an alternative to paraffin. Many people with chronic pain have had, or are at least familiar with paraffin (especially clients who went through physical therapy for an injury), making it an easy conversation. The starter kit is all you need to test the waters. At $1.60 per treatment cost, if you only offered the service for $10.00, you don't need a calculator to see how profitable it is! 

For those who run full speed and cannon ball in, how about cupping? Phenomenal for chronic pain, professional and Olympic athletes go for treatments regularly to improve and recover. Cupping has been shown to help release adhesions, scar tissue, relax muscles in spasm, decrease trigger point pain, lymphatic drainage, decrease tissue changes and inflammation. 

Give us a call, send an email (christine@purespadirect.com to reach me directly), or come find us on live chat for more ideas and ways to ease your clients pain and maximize profit potential!

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"!

Happy Friday!

I was super excited when I saw this new addition to the Pure Spa Direct line up. I'm a huge fan of magnesium lotions and oils. It has helped me with migraines and muscle cramping, and I recommend it to friends regularly.

Aside from the benefits I have experienced with magneisum, CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream is helpful with a multitude of things including fluid retention, calming nerves and detoxifying the body, insomnia, eczema and psoriasis. Harvested from the Dead Sea where the mineral content is at its highest containing 21 minerals, this product is amazing.

You can retail and use this in services making it an easy retail item. Offer it as an add on to a pedicure (medi pedi upgrade!), manicure, massage even as a simple hand/leg massage while a client is getting a facial. Advise they try it a few times to see the results, and have it ready to retail!

See you next Friday, have an amazing weekend!

How to Add Profit and Satisfaction with Hydration

It is essential for a client to hydrate after a massage, and should always be recommended. Every time I've gotten a spa treatment, I have always been handed a glass of water.

Why is this?

“Relaxing the muscles with massage helps to open these circulatory pathways, directing metabolites toward the kidneys. Hydration after a massage helps the kidneys to flush and eliminate this waste.” (Barbara Close, founder, and CEO of Naturopathica)

It's the little details that can set your business apart from others. Stand out in a crowd by trying these simple suggestions-

Square Glass Flavor Infusion Beverage Dispenser / 3 Gallons 
This attractive 3 Gallon Square Glass Infusion Jar is perfect for relaxation rooms! Ideal for tea bags, limes, lemons, cucumbers, oranges, etc. to infuse into cold water.

"Fruit, Herb and Flower Infusions can turn
the ordinary into the extraordinary!"

Our elegant decanters are specially designed to hold a generous 50 oz. and complement our vials in form and size. The base of the decanter is rounded on its inside and, thus, helps prevent your vial from touching the sides of the decanter.

VitaJuwel is the most hygienic and efficient method to prepare gem water. And it's easy! Just place a VitaJuwel gem vial in drinking water for 7-10 minutes and enjoy gemwater, the true elixir of life! Using gems to vitalize water is an age-old tradition, dating back to ancient Greece and medieval times. Gems have the ability to store an energy that inspirits the surrounding drinking water, making it more lively and enjoyable. This can even be tasted by sensual water lovers! The gems don't have to physically contact the water. The glass vial acts like a natural prism for the crystal's radiant energy. Like in the natural cycle of water, with VitaJuwel the natural element stone regenerates the natural element water.

Product Of The Week: Alaskan Glacial Mud

Happy Friday!

This week, I'd like to spotlight Raw Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud.

Mud is always in style in this industry, from facials masks to body wraps. As a massage therapist, after a few years in I decided to give offering various mud add-ons a shot. As a mobile therapist at the time, I thought I was nuts for just the thought of mobile mud! I was able to make it work for me, and my client response surprised the heck out of me! All of them wanted to try it. After the trial run, some alternated their massages with mud treatments.

Mud works.

Alaska Glacial mud works. Containing more than 60 nourishing major and trace elements to promote healthy skin cell regeneration, you may find clients requesting mud packages.

Raw Alaskan Glacial. The name says it all.
Straight from the Copper River Delta in Alaska, enriched with a special combination of certified organic and wildcrafted botanical extracts from the Pacific Northwest that are chosen for their moisturizing, skin-softening, and anti-aging and immunoprotective properties. Natural as natural gets.

Are your clients hesitant on mud treatments due to that lovely, mud smell?  You can choose vanilla lavender and lavender peppermint. The slight tingle from the peppermint feels amazing, in my opinion!

Available in back bar sizes in both premixed and powder, as well as a beautiful line of retail items.

If you're not ready to jump into the mud just yet, retailing is a great way to talk to your clients and gauge their response to mud.

See you next Friday for another product of the week!

Cold Season Help... for Retail

Have you heard about Farmaesthetics yet?

I cannot say enough about this brand! The client response is phenomenal!
Trade the preservatives, dyes, and fake fragrances for wholesome herbs, flowers, grains, and oils. Farmaesthetics professional and retail natural skin care incorporate the 100% pure, organic elements your clients crave and leave out the artificial ingredients for a refreshing change. Natural and effective skin care based on herbal traditions.

Easy to add to your menu, with a manageable number of products. Beautiful apothecary looks for retail boutiques.

Farmaesthetics is making the perfect elixir for this season and you can retail it!

Farmaesthetics Vapor Bath Elixir / 4 oz.
Farmaesthetics Vapor Bath Elixir is "a spa in a bottle", as it has been called, this vibrant green Vapor Bath Elixir is full of essential oils to warm the body and relax the mind. This chlorophyll-infused preparation will soften, purify, and deodorize the skin, while vaporous essential oils release to open congestion and relax tight or achy muscles. Use as a deep herbal soak to revitalize the entire system.

WHAT the Key Ingredients are and WHY they work
  • Chlorophyll: Known as liquid sunshine, liquid chlorophyll is nontoxic and soothing to body tissues when applied in an external bath.
  • Menthol: A soothing compound derived from the peppermint plant. If used in small amounts, menthol generates a cool heat, activated by the friction of "rubbing". 
  • Clove Essential Oil: Long used to treat fungal infections, the kind that impact nail beds, cuticles, and feet, clove is an antibacterial as well. It has powerful local antiseptic and mild anesthetic actions was known as a decongestant and inhalation for colds. It is less known but highly valued for its bactericidal and antiviral action. It not only relieves nasal congestion but also is known to actually inhibit the proliferation of the cold virus. In massage, it is relieving to muscular aches and pains.
  • Lavender Essential Oil: It stimulates and rejuvenates the skin and restores the skin's natural balance in oil production. It also stimulates sore, exhausted muscles and soothes the nerves, while acting as an aromatic astringent.
  • Geranium Essential Oil: Oil derived from the geranium flower. Like virtually all the flower oils, it is an antidepressant and antiseptic and is valued for its astringent and antiseptic properties. 
  • White Camphor Essential Oil: Known for its value in treating colds, chills, and inflammatory complaints, it relieves skin irritation. In cases of nervous excitement, it has a soothing and quieting result
  • Glutamate (aclyglutamate): A delicate cleansing agent derived from natural sugar cane; adds the slip to the preparations as well as the gentle action of removing excess oil. 
  • Vegetable Glycerin: Used as a humectant, it actually attracts moisture from the air and binds it to the skin's surface. It also provides a protective barrier on the skin so as to retain its moisture.

Farmaesthetics Deep Lavender Rub / 4 oz.
Voted "Favorite Product" by Spa Magazine beauty editors and "Best in New England" by Yankee Magazine, this herbal ode to Vicks® Vapo Rub® is a deep comfort rub that utilizes the heat-producing essential oils of ginger, rosemary, and eucalyptus to relax and release upper respiratory tightness due to colds, allergies, stress, or asthma. It is also an excellent lineament for stiff or strained muscles due to overexertion or inactivity (both extremes can yield sore muscles). Deep Lavender Rub is a powerful preparation that is gentle enough for a child.

Purpose:
Deep Heat Comfort Rub for relieving upper respiratory tightness due to colds or allergies. Apply to chest or neck area, then cover with a warm towel to super-charge effects of the essential oils and herbs, to relax tension and aid in a good night's sleep.

Sinus Relief by opening nasal passages. As essential vapors are released and inhaled, there is an "opening" of the sinuses, helping relieve stuffiness and easing mental tension and headache. The releasing heat of our herbal rub will help increase circulation and blood flow to the face, and this is excellent for optimizing a healthy complexion.

Muscular Massage is greatly enhanced by using Deep Lavender Rub, not only for the aroma therapeutic qualities of Ginger, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Rosemary, but also for their ability to penetrate muscle tissue and relax tension from a range of conditions like flu, illness, or sports.

Hand and Foot Treatments are all the better when enhanced with Deep Lavender Rub. Whether its a hand and foot massage you give yourself at the end of a long day or one administered to someone in need of TLC, applying a small amount of Deep Lavender Rub with massage, to soles and palms, will super-charge the healing benefits of the treatment. (Did you know that the soles of the feet and palms are the most vulnerable areas of the body for taking in herbal constituents?) Wrapping hands or feet in warm towels after application, will further soften skin and maximize the relaxation response.

Key Ingredients:
  • Sweet Almond: It stimulates and rejuvenates the skin and restores the skin's natural balance in oil production. It also stimulates sore, exhausted muscles and soothes the nerves, while acting as an aromatic astringent.
