Quick Lunchtime Escapes For The Working Client

From This…

The work week can be draining and stressful, so why not offer your clients midday, mini escapes to help break up their day and have them feeling refreshed as they return to work. I’ve started to notice that mini services that require less than an hour are great to offer to your clients who are looking for a lunchtime pick me up. (This is especially great if your located in an area surrounded by business offices!) Besides pampering services, your clients are also looking to take care of their regular beauty maintenance without taking up precious weekend time! For example, if you’re due for an eyebrow waxing — would you rather do it during your lunch break (It really only takes about 15 minutes!) or would you want to take time out of your relaxing weekend? Obviously, most would choose to get it out of the way during the week.

Anyway, back to pampering… Here’s some great ideas for services to promote during lunchtime breaks:

Sunless Tan: 30 minutes or less

Manicure: Just a basic manicure will take at most 30 minutes.

Massage: Shoulder and Neck massages are ideal for a lunchtime break. You can offer 10, 20, or even 30 minutes. Your clients will be feeling great the rest of the day!

…To This! (in less than an hour!)

Mini Facials: 30 minutes – Hydration facials is great for this. (Also, quick makeup applications are great to offer after a facial service. Your clients won’t want to be returning to work with a red shiny face!)

Waxing: Eyebrows and upper lip take about 10-15 minutes. Bikini or lower leg can also be done in less than an hour.

Blow-out: Getting a blow-out is something a lot of your clients will request midday. It great for your clients who have plans after work.

An Organic Massage Product To Make Your Clients Ooh and Aah

More and more people are requesting products that are all natural or organic, especially when it comes to things that are absorbed into their skin.

There are different reasons people request organic products such as:
  • Sensitive Skin Issues
  • Earth Friendly Reasons
  • Prior experience
  • Health Benefits
One of my favorite organic massage product lines is from Lotus Touch. I had tried other organic lines before and some didn’t have the right glide, some were too greasy, while others were absorbing too quickly. A friend recommended I try the Lotus Touch Organic Naturals Massage Kit. At such an affordable price I couldn’t pass up giving it a shot. I prefer working with cream or lotion rather than oil but do have a few clients who prefer oil so this kit was perfect.
I was pleasantly surprised at how well this product worked. The glide was perfect; I was able to do both light and deep work easily with a small amount of lotion/oil. It had the right amount of absorption where the client felt the luxurious feel of the lotion while I still had optimal control and there was no greasy excess.
I used it on a few of my repeat clients who were used to my regular lotion and they were in love. In most cases, after having used the Lotus Touch Organic Naturals, they wanted it as their regular.
Another great aspect of this line is that they are not only certified organic and paraben free, they also contain no nut oils – a strong concern for anyone with even a slight nut allergy.

Serenity is Bliss!

With the hustle and bustle of everyday living, the state of being calm, peaceful, and unbothered may not come so easy. Clients are looking to escape into pure serenity!

Here are some great ideas that will help you provide a blissful experience that will keep your clients coming back for more.



Create a serene atmosphere!

Natural salt lamps are great! These natural salt lamps are hand-shaped from select chunks of the finest, most potent salt crystal in the world. However, these attractive lamps provide more than ambient, soothing light. Some users may experience homeopathic health benefits from using them –the most immediate and dramatic being for those suffering from respiratory allergies and/or asthma.






Music will relieve anxiety and stress!


The soothing power of music is an extremely effective stress management tool. Playing soft music in the background will help your customer to enjoy their spa experience.



The use of a diffuser is key to having a great smelling spa!



This Diffuser is perfect for both, adding humidity to the air and dispersing your desired scent of essential oil to enhance your room’s atmosphere! The ultrasonic nebulizer transforms water and essential oil into a cool mist. It also includes output adjustment buttons for a low or high mist and has a safe auto-off feature when the water runs out. Offers a whisper quiet operating system – so it can be used both at night and during the day. This Unique Aromatherapy Diffuser offers a lighting feature to create a relaxing therapeutic mood, or can be used as a night light!

Distilled water is recommended to prevent mineral build up

Pregnancy Massage

If you aren’t already trained in pregnancy massages, it is a great addition to add to your credentials. Women, during any time of their pregnancy, can appreciate the benefits and overall feel-good aspects of receiving a massage. You don’t want to miss out on an entire client population by not being able to accommodate pregnant women!!!
Many times, loved ones are looking for a great gift for a pregnant woman and a gift certificate for a massage will definitely make her feel great!
If you have room to designate for pregnancy massage then I highly recommend looking into a table designed specifically for pregnancy massage such as the Spirit Pregnancy Table Package by EarthLite
If you don’t have the ability for a designated room, a great product you can have on hand for pregnant women is the Pregnancy Cushion and Headrest by EarthLite
Which ever route you are able to go, by having the right tools to provide pregnancy massage, you can open up an opportunity for incredible business growth!

Summer Scalp Treatment!

Many people tend to forget about their scalp/top of the head when it comes to summer sun care. Here is a great treatment for clients who may be dealing with dry, itchy scalps to help provide some cooling relief:

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon fine dead sea salt, 1 tablespoon wheatgerm oil, 5 drops peppermint essential oil and 4 drops of tea tree essential oil. Place the bowl in a mud warmer or hot towel cabinet to keep warm until ready to use.

Shampoo and rinse, give a light towel dry and apply the warmed mixture to the scalp. Gently massage the scalp for about 10 minutes. Remove with a light shampoo and rinse – that’s it!

Simple, effective and cooling!

Cold Hands and Your Sales

As a perpetually cold person, having someone touch my skin with cold hands is startling and uncomfortable.

Any time I received a massage and the therapist had cold hands, that was the last time I went there. Harsh, I know, but true. That initial jolt of cold when the opening effleurage started, would amp every nerve in my body up and I would spend the rest of the time trying to get back to a relaxed state. It ruined the massage for me.

Do you have clients who are sensitive to cold? Are your clients coming in for any sort of treatment that may cause relaxation? Do you simply want to provide the most comfortable and memorable experience for each of your clients?

Bottle warmers are such an easy and effective way to keep lotions and oils at the perfect temperature to have your clients breathing sighs of relief the moment it hits their skin. From single bottle warmers all the way up to four bottle capacity, you’ll always be ready to go.
