Shedding Light On Shirodhara

Shirodhara is a form of Ayurveda therapy. Shiro means “head”, and dhara means “dripping oil”. This treatment involves a stream of warm oil to run continuously on the forehead. This treatment is also used non-medicinally to improve poor sleep quality. Shirodhara is also effective in treating mental conditions such as anxiety, and stress. Another bonus about this treatment is the warm oil is great for moisturizing your hair!

What’s the difference between the Manual kit and the Electric kit?


Manual: This is the traditional system for giving a Shirodhara treatment. Fully hands on, the flow of oil comes from the copper pot, onto the person’s Third eye, down the hair and vinyl strip, and into the warming pan, where the flow continues with the therapist re-pouring the warmed oil back into the copper vessel. While this method requires skill and an ability to quiet one’s own mind, it is the most energetically positive way to give a Shirodhara treatment.








Electric: This package includes all the equipment needed for performing a virtually hands-free Shirodhara. Especially beneficial for the therapist with shoulder or back injuries because it requires no heavy oil pan lifting. just turn the pump on and let the oil flow! Using the hands-free system also allows for Reiki or subtle marma point therapy during the treatment. The copper pitcher allows for a uniform copper look. It also provides a taller, narrower container for your oil and pump, so it all comes off without a hitch!

Wax Wednesday 101, Brazilian Babe!

It is crucial to educate your clients to care for their skin before a wax to ensure a high-quality service.

Wax prep we recommend our clients mention to their clients includes showering right before a wax appointment, use warm water and lightly exfoliate the area. This step will remove dead skin cells and other impurities in the skin, as well as force those troublesome ingrown hairs to pop up and show themselves.

Before applying wax to your client it is important to cleanse the skin to remove oils, lotions, and sweat, then apply a light dusting of powder. This will allow the wax to adhere to the hair and not the skin.

After the service is completed, you should cleanse the skin to remove wax residue and apply a post-wax solution. But post-wax care doesn’t end here! Educate your clients on how they should be caring for there skin at home. This will make their next appointment a walk in the park, and eliminate the chance of irritation, bumps, and ingrowns.


Let’s take this a little further!


How about offering your client a Brazilian waxing mask as an add on, after their waxing service. Starpil’s Brazilian Waxing Mask is a gentle moisturizing and desensitizing tissue mask containing active ingredients like chamomile extract, aloe vera extract, hamamelis water, lavender, and hyaluronic acid that soothes, softens, hydrates, and restores sensitized skin after intimate waxing. Perfect for men and women. Case of 12 single-use masks.

Volcano Spa Pedicure

La Palm Volcano Spa is an organic, single-use pedicure treatment that comes in an already portioned packet for each client, helping eliminate wasted product. The treatment includes five steps that will help clients’ skin feel moisturized, and smooth out the skin’s appearance with its collagen-infused ingredients.

Step one and two involve Detox Volcano Crystals and a Volcano Activator packet, which cause a bubbling carbonation. Step three involves an exfoliating sugar scrub. Steps four and five include a cream mask and massage lotion, both of which are collagen-infused, allowing you to finish the service off with long-lasting moisture and anti-aging benefits. Made in the USA.


Details:

Step 1: Detox Volcano Crystals: (approximately 2 oz.)
To prepare for the fun bubble explosion, first add the full packet of Volcano Crystals to warm spa water. Be sure to spread the volcano crystals evenly throughout.

Step 2: Detox Volcano Activator: (approximately 1 oz.)
Immediately add the full packet of Volcano Activator to begin the bubbling Volcano eruption. Clients will especially enjoy this effect as the entire room fills with the lovely fragrance! Allow feet to soak for approximately three minutes as the reaction detoxifies and softens the skin. Dry legs and feet with a towel. To blend the ingredients and boost the fragrance, turn on the water jets before continuing.

Step 3: Exfoliating Sugar Scrub: (approximately 1 oz.)
Apply a generous amount of sugar scrub and massage gently to exfoliate the skin. These raw sugars and essential oils help renew the texture of skin and enhance vibrancy, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. Be sure to rinse the sugar scrub and towel dry.
