New Year, New Look with Urbane Uniforms!

2019 is upon us. For many, New Year’s means a time for renewal, for resolutions. Why not renew your spa’s look with some new Uniforms for your team?

Uniforms are a great way to distinguish employees from guests, as well as build your brand. Employees often feel a sense of unity with their fellow employees when everyone is equal in clothing, and they often have a positive impact on attitudes and morale.

If you are looking for a more casual or comfortable look, Pure Spa Direct has recently added Urbane Uniforms. With a huge selection of colors and styles, we are bound to offer something that feels right to fit in with your culture! Some of our favorites are listed below:

Urbane Uniforms

Front bust darts and back princess seams offer just the right amount of shape to flatter your figure while the contrast stitching on the side seam add pops of color.

Massage Must Have: Bolsters!

Bolsters help clients get comfortable and relax so you can give a better treatment. Bolsters are used to support clients, provide comfort, and aid the therapist by giving them access to the body. Choose from a variety of sizes, colors, and styles to meet the needs of every therapist, every client, and every treatment!

Use large round bolsters placed under the knees while a client is in the supine position to take the pressure off the lower back. Smaller round bolsters or half-round bolsters work well under the ankles and a small half-round bolster placed under the neck helps support the natural curve of the neck and gives therapists better access to the shoulders. Bolsters placed under the mid-thoracic area help keep pregnant clients or clients that have trouble breathing while in the supine position, in a more comfortable semi-reclined
position.

Take a look at some of the popular options and sizes below.

Jumbo – Full Round 9″ x 26″ by Stronglite

The Jumbo Round Bolster is a foam-filled bolster with zippered outer case and a strap handle. Great to support your client under the knees, ankles or use for side posture support.

Full Half Round Bolster by Earthlite

The Full Half Round Bolster is a foam-filled bolster with zippered outer case and a strap handle. It provides extra comfort and support and also helps to relieve muscle strain.

Comfort Bolster by EarthLite

The Comfort Bolster is a foam-filled bolster. It provides extra comfort and support for women’s breasts and helps to relieve muscle strain. The Comfort Bolster is an alternative to ordering a table with a breast recess option as it serves a similar purpose. It can be used with any massage table.

Remember, your clients are paying for comfort, make sure you have everything you need to ensure they have the best experience possible. That way, you know they will be back!

When I started massage school many moons ago, I would have never dreamed up a table better than the Nuage Vector™ Studio by Living Earth Crafts!

The quality of the Living Earth Crafts line is unparalleled and this table is no exception!


With so many options to choose from for color, cushioning, width and even a face cradle with sound, you’re basically building your dream table. Now for the truly awesome features of this table….

It’s all electric which, if you’re used to having wooden knob adjustments to raise/lower your table – you’ll adore this!

It has chroma therapy lighting – if you’re not familiar with this, I highly suggest checking it out. The use of colored lighting has been shown to be helpful with relaxation.

My favorite feature is the embedded digital table warmer. I’ll say it again, it has a built-in digital table warmer. No more annoying cords to stumble over or table warmers bunching up anywhere.

A few more unique features include acoustic resonance, embedded Bluetooth® stereo speakers, Apple iPad® control system, meditative nature journeys—seriously, there isn’t anything else you need on a table to offer an amazing experience to every single client.

Shellac Attack!- The Nail Biter Experience- Day 1 – Review by Kerri

The joke around the office is that the new CND Shellac is the best
invention since the Internet, and for us ladies it just might be!

Since the beginning of manicure history, a 14-day manicure has always
been unheard of – especially if you9re like me who has been plagued by
nail and cuticle biting their entire life! From the moment I heard
about this, I could not wait for our CND Shellac Kits to arrive. And
today, for the first time, I was “shellacked.” I’ve always been
partial to a glamorous light pink so I selected the CND Shellac
Romantique as my color of choice. I had my nails pre-manicured and my
cuticles clipped. With each coat that was applied, I became more and
more excited to see the finished product. I could not believe how fast
the UV lamp cured the nails. I am so used to waiting for my nails dry,
that I had to be reminded that it was okay to fix my hair with my
freshly painted nails, the minute after we finished! Most importantly,
my nails have stayed far away from my mouth. Even an habitual nail
biter wouldn’t want to chomp on these perfectly polished and shiny
nails. 1st day=Success!

Want A Healthier Life, Kola Is The Answer

This type of Kola is not just good for you, it is great for you. Gotu Kola is a plant that has many healing and calming effects, I’m surprised more don’t use it. In Ayurvedic Medicine, it is said to be one of the most important rejuvenating herbs. It can be used as a pure blood tonic and for skin health. Fortifying the immune system, Gotu Kola both cleanses and feeds resulting in the strengthening of the adrenal glands. Helping people who practice yoga to improve their meditation practices, this herb’s calming properties make it happen. It’s said to develop the crown chakra, the energy center at the top of the head, and balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain. If you have a medi-spa that focuses on the more natural and herbal approach to healing, this is the perfect item to purchase for your services.

The Gotu Kola Powder has chemical constituents that aids in wound healing and acts as a strong anti-inflammatory agent. It affects various stages of tissue development:
  • helps the process of replacing skin after sores or ulcers
  • synthesis of collagen
  • stimulation of hair and nail growth

The herb has been used successfully to help with inflammation of veins, varicose veins, leg cramps, swelling of the legs and heaviness and tingling in legs. Use the powder we have available at Pure Spa Direct to mix in with your solutions or creams to help your clients have better results with the issues they may be having.

SpaFinder’s 2013 Spa Tends…SNEAK PEEK!

New Year’s means champagne, resolutions, out with the old, in with the new…..and for Spa Professionals, it means SpaFinder’s Spa Trends!

SpaFinder released a Sneak Peek of their Top 10 Spa Trends for 2013. Check them out below:

Healthy Hotels – Instead of mere amenities, wellness-focused features of hotels, including fitness centers, spas, and specialized menus, will become mainstream in “wellness-everywhere” hotels.

The Mindfulness Massage – A creative blend of mindfulness and bodywork, the Mindfulness Massage incorporates breathing techniques and so-called “body scans” to bring attention to every part of the body, bringing the massage to the next level. Leave the mind-clutter behind!
Earthing – A movement promoting direct contact with the Earth’s surface to stabilize the body’s rhythms and reduce inflammation. Spas are expected to incorporate more “Earthing” into treatments and further reach into the “nature grounding” movement.
Spa-Genomics…Telomeres and Beyond – Genomic testing is showing the potential to pinpoint diseases that can be slowed by lifestyle changes. In some studies, telomeres have shown to be able to be repaired by stress-reduction, exercise, sleep, healthier lifestyles, and meditation. All of this is right up the Spa Industry’s alley – and the move to incorporate Spas into your health routine will continue!
Authentic Ayurveda and Other Ancient Revivals – More “aggressively-authentic” wellness experiences, incorporating ancient wellness traditions will be seen throughout the spa industry, with a strong focus on Ayurveda, Turkish and Roman baths, and even Russian banyas.

Color Self-Expression – Self-expression in 2013 is going to play out in COLOR – allowing self-transformation to be painted on, both easily and relatively inexpensively. Expect hair color to be IN-YOUR-FACE, colorful accessorial add-ons, such as neon lashes, and lots of nail and body art.
Inclusive Wellness – The industry is expected to continue its shift from pampering to delivering wellness to people of all ages and abilities. More and more people are looking to spas to help with the healing process, as well as increase bodily function, in both pain-relieving capacities, as well as mobility-enhancing therapies.
Label Conscious Fitness – While branded fitness has been around for decades, the fitness world is expanding rapidly, and, according to SpaFinder, “an explosion of “fitness labels” distinguishes products and programs – and serves as a shortcut for instant recognition in an oversaturated market full of similar choices…Millions chase the “insider elite,” giving the fitness world a distinct fashion world vibe where consumers shop for the latest fitness craze just as they search for the newest designer purse.”
Men: From Barbers to “Brotox” – 2013 will see more and more having “work” done, from injectables to body enhancements, as new technology allows for little to no downtime and almost no telltale scarring. Men are looking for more subtle, less obvious results, and further enhancements in this sector are allowing medspas and plastic surgeons to provide just that. Not a medspa or plastic surgeon? That’s ok – expect to expand your male menu, including waxing, threading, and other male cosmetic treatments as well.
Where the Jobs Are – The health/beauty/wellness sector is growing rapidly, and cannot find enough qualified, skilled employees to keep up. As eyes remain on health and wellness, and the public views spas as a healthy alternative to maintain a wellness-focused lifestyle, this service sector will continue to boom with new jobs and positions to fill.

That is quite a list! Pure Spa Direct is here to help you grow your business. With over 65,000 products, we have it all in one place to help you expand to keep up with growing trends! As a business owner, which of these trends to you expect to tackle in 2013?
