Catch The Charcoal Craze!

Charcoal has been a buzz word the last few years from face masks to foot soaks. The detoxifying power of charcoal has made it an easy addition to many great spa and salon menus.

The Gena Spa Pedicure Starter Kit is just the thing to tap into the charcoal craze. Included in the kit are 4 oz each of Gena Pedicure Soak, Foot Scrub, Pedicure Mask & Foot Massage Cream. Clients can expect skin that is left smooth and polished. Refined charcoal works effectively to remove dry, callused skin and reveals feet that are restored and nourished. Clients get flawless pedicures they’ll keep coming back for!

Got Tape?

Kinesiology tape is a phenomenal, and often under used tool to help relieve client pain, and as a self care tool for therapists.

The widespread use of kinesiology tape on professional athletes and physical therapy offices has made it much easier to talk to clients about. Aside from physical therapists, many massage therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and wellness workers have successfully incorporated it into their treatment plans to help alleviate pain, improve posture and stability.

It is also valuable as a self care tool to help with everything from hip and back pain to De Quervain’s thumb!

It’s Common Scents…First Impressions Are Everything!

When you enter a room, what’s the first thing you notice? It’s usually the scent. According to an article I read, smell is the most sensitive of the senses. People can remember smells with 65% accuracy after a year, while visual recall is about 50% after three months. Crazy how that works, right! If you really want your spa to stand out, why not liven up your client’s senses with room spray. Not sure where to begin? We have a great light called Pure Light that carries organic room sprays. You can even use them on linens to freshen up your sheets! Make your rooms memorable by having a different scent in each room! Check out my top 3 scents below:


Rainforest is a beautiful, sweet earthy scent, beginning with a base of European black pine and wild berries. Woody tonka bean and cedarwood gently unfold with a touch of rose and a sprinkle of cinnamon to complete this unique all-natural harmony. It’s a great scent for fall which is rapidly approaching!









Aloha is a sumptuous blend of tropical mojo. Sun-drenched fruits and flowers create an ambiance of warmth with this aromatic masterpiece. This scent might immediately make your clients feel like their on a vacation in the tropics!










Zen Garden is smooth and sophisticated with a delicate blend of aloe and green tea. Make your clients feel like they’re in a relaxing Japanese Garden with this spray!


Pure Light also has candles in the same scents that are 100% natural and made with an exclusive blend of certified organic coconut wax, pure essential oils, and a textile grade cotton wick. They9re biodegradable, soot-free, clean burning, and hand poured in the USA! Make your clients remember your spa by its scent with these lovely, natural aromas.

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of shea butter with 1/2 teaspoon of borage oil and 3 drops of lemongrass essential oil. Place the bowl in a mud warmer or hot towel cabinet so it’s warm when applied.

Shampoo as usual and lightly towel dry before applying. Be sure to start at the ends of the hair and work up towards the scalp. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and remove with a light shampoo or rinse. It’s as easy as that!

Heat of the Moment

Creating a warm and inviting spot helps to create a comfortable and relaxing environment for the service you wish to offer to your clients.

Table warmers are great at providing a warmth that does not overpower the experience of the treatment but enhances the subtle effects. Many of these products offer Temperature settings in either low – high, or a temperature range, with a variety of surface materials.

Finding the right setting for each client based on their need and request to create the best experience for each and every one of your clients.

Product Of The Week: AquaBella Abrasion-Free Peeling Liquid Facial System

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a fun and successful week!

The product of the week (and a new favorite of mine!), is the Abrasion-Free Peeling Liquid Facial System. If you haven’t yet heard of this game changing type of facial, or are familiar with the rather expensive alternative, now is the perfect time to take a look.

A major reason this has become one of the hottest new trends is how gentle it is while remaining effective. As effective as microdermabrasion, yet gentle enough to use on all skin types and ethnicity. Instead of blasting the face with crystals (or diamond burs), this uses only liquids.

What does this mean for your clients? No down time, no bruising and immediate results. Immediate results – your clients will see and feel a difference after ONE treatment. This results in packages for your business and glowing clients.

The Aqua Bella combines powerful vacuum technology and adjustable pulsation within a robust, excellent quality system for superior infusion results. Adjustable vacuum-massage allows cleansing and hydrating solutions to consistently unclog and gently cleanse pores, aqua-foliate dead skin cells, and extract keratin, sebum, blackheads, or other impurities. Simultaneously, the hydrolyzed treatment tips smoothly glide across the skin, dispersing and infusing solutions where the skin cells are regenerating.

One of my favorite things about this – extractions are less painful! Simply turn the suction up on the machine to extract! No more painful tools or pinching!

If you want to take your facials and business to the next level in the new year, hit the ground running with this portable powerhouse!

AquaBella Overview:


Have a great weekend!

Shark Week at FL Spa: Take a Bite Out of This Creative Idea

Everyone loves Shark Week, even the Ritz Carlton!


I was recently reading this article about the Ritz Carlton in Ft. Lauderdale, who debuted a special “Shark Week” menu to commemorate the popular Discovery Channel event! Tatiana Lora, director of public relations, said: “We are offering ocean-inspired therapies and a special Shark Week spa treatment menu that guests can book.”

Featuring adorable services such as the “Starfish and Sand Pedicure,” the “Sea-Toxifying Massage,” and the “Under the Sea Wrap,” this special menu is available all month long, and the proceeds will be donated to the University of Miami’s Shark Research and Conservation Program.

Since there are special “holidays” for just about everything at this point (today is Fresh Breath Day!), you can take a note from the Ritz’s book and create a special menu at any time of the year! What are some of your favorite fun holidays to cook up new services for?
