Thumbsavers were invented by Greg Polins, a former massage therapist that owned and operated his own

Large size shown

Massage Therapy business from 1995 to 2005. After eight years, he began to experience crippling pain in his thumbs and wrist from the extensive deep tissue massage that he had been performing. He needed a solution or his career would have been over.

The solution was Thumbsavers. They are made of flexible, non-latex material that form fits and feels natural to the user and the receiver.

Thumbsavers comes in three sizes:
Red = Small,
White = Medium
Blue = Large
*The width of your thumb is the most important measurement when deciding what size Thumbsaver to order.

Highlights:

  • Massage deeper and work longer
  • Reduce carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Alleviate wrist, thumb and joint fatigue and pain.
  • Feels natural and offers maneuverability.
  • Greater sensitivity for you.
  • Deeper massage for your client.

What Is In Your Manicure and Pedicure Bowls?

Variety is the key to keep customers happy and coming back. Adding a little extra something special to your manicure soak or pedicure soak can make a huge difference! Your client will feel extra pampered and luxurious by adding something as simple as gemstones. Just add the gemstones or stones to cover the bottom of your manicure or pedicure bowl.
There are such beautiful colored gemstones that not only offer a eye popping, look but some have healing properties or interesting characteristics.

For example, take the Green Aventurine Gemstone. Widely viewed as an all around “luck” stone, Aventurine is more specifically known for stimulating dreaming and helping those who use it find balance and a stronger personal identity. Green Aventurine is particularly revered as a stone that can ease anxiety and calm emotion, perhaps helping to whether stress and worries, helping you to keep a positive outlook.

Another great look to add to the manicure soak is beautiful glass manicure bowl. The gemstones shine through the glass bowl, looking beautiful and providing the client with a peaceful and serene setting. Who wouldn’t want to be pampered by such beauty!

    The Evolution of a Brush: From Bone Picks to Gemstones with the Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush!

    I’m too sexy for my brush…

    For as long as people have had hair, we have needed some way to tame the tangles, free the knots, and show off our own personal style. Hair brushes have been around for thousands of years, but thanks to evolution, they have transformed from being simple bone or shell picks, to more modern and ergonomic styling tools.

    For example, Pure Spa Direct recently added the Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush to our ever-expanding product selection. After reading the description of this brush, I couldn’t resist and had to purchase one instantly. The Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush has crushed Tourmaline gemstones infused within the barrel of the brush that emit negative ions to SMOOTH HAIR, ADD SHINE and ELIMINATE FRIZZ! Yes, this brush is infused with GEMSTONES!!!

    As an end-user, I have noticed visible results to the appearance of my hair when I use this brush during my blow outs. As professionals, having a brush that works miracles to bring structure to a client’s unruly mop is a necessity! That is why I recommend that every hair salon ditches their antique brushes and adds the Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush to their salon stations and retail offerings.
    Have you had the chance to try this amazing brush yet?
