And as quick as a flash we are back to the Christmas season. Arguably the busiest time of the year for therapists, winter is a time to celebrate, wrap up warm and pamper. Why not add festive warmth into the salon with these handy extras.
The perfect addition to both salons and clinics alike is the heat lamp. This is a simple extra to any treatment offered over the winter months. Not only can these be used for pain relief, but also anti aging treatments and promoting good blood circulation.
Add fragrance to your salon with festive scents. Fancy baking? Why not bring in some tasty treats to fill the air. Or if your short for time incense sticks and candles help create a festive atmosphere. Alternatively add these into your treatments in the form of steaming your oils or using them over the body during massage.
Treatments can be warmed up too. Why not include a hot stone massage into your festive package this year. A hot stone massage can reduce stress and tension and would be the perfect unwinding treatment or as an appetizer to deep tissue work.
Warmth is not just a winter fad. Feel the heat all year round by opting for a couch with heated panels. Include a wave of warmth during your treatments to loosen up and relax the muscles. Build up the heat to lead into more vigorous work or even keep it on low throughout to soothe the client.
If none of the above are tempting to add to your routine. Why not add a hot towel option to the end of your treatments. This serves to open pores, hydrate the skin and is the perfect way to transition into the end of the treatment as it allows the client time to come to.
