Why do clients come in for spa treatments? Whether it is stress reduction, relief from aches and pains or simple escape, one thing is for certain- spa treatments make us feel better!
While more and more people are turning to wellness treatments, spas are learning how to communicate the real benefits that these treatments can result in for mind, soul and body. What can you tell your clients and potential clients to encourage more visits to your spa? Use these points in your next sales promotion and educate the readers on some of the benefits of regular spa treatments.
What are some of the benefits?
1) Human touch can literally wipe away the tension in our muscles and the stress in our mind. Touch stimulates the release of the feel-good hormone, serotonin. 2) It increases blood circulation, which then allows for promotes oxygen to be carried throughout the body.
3) Massage stimulates lymphatic flow, cleansing the blood of toxins. And, the most important reason massage is so popular is that coming in for a massage demands that the client slow down and disengage from the ‘real world’.
4) The pampering reason put aside, facials give us a chance to rejuvenate our ‘look’. Daily, our skin is exposed to environmental factors like sun exposure and pollutants, and a deep cleanse can improve the texture and appearance of the skin. Older skin needs exfoliation because skin cell turnover decreases and can leave a dull even grey appearance. Collagen enriched treatments can leave a more radiant, youthful glow.
5) Exfoliating with scrubs, soaks and even wax treatments will polish the skin and leave a softer, smoother look and feel. Certain exfoliants claim to aid in cell re-generation. Emollients and body butters rejuvenate the skin by replacing or encapsulating the skin’s natural moisture.
An important note: As a therapist, it is important to check the client’s skin carefully and make sure there are no skin conditions that could be aggravated by the treatment.
Post Wax treatments
6) A professional wax treatment begins with pre-wax products and ends with post wax treatments. These products are designed to boost moisture to the skin, decrease inflammation and reduce the possibility of ingrown hairs.
7) Body wraps claim to re-charge the body with nutrients and elements. Mudpacks, mineral water mud baths and epsom salt soaks, reportedly have anti-inflammatory properties and can help relieve itchy, sensitive skin and refine pores.
8) Most importantly, regular spa treatments have been shown to reduce sick days, induce better quality of sleep and improve mental health.
With all there is to gain, your clients will be eager to purchase packages for a series of spa treatments!
