For many clients, a massage is just a massage, with little varying between spas and salons other than the price. If you’re really looking to make an impression on clients, drive more visitors and set yourself apart from competitors, there are plenty of opportunities to add your own signature touches, and create a more sensory experience. Here are our top three products that can elevate your massage from snooze to bliss in an instant.
Wili Heat Bags
Lupin Heat Bags, made from Lupin Beans (small yellow legumes) have a few advantages over traditional wheat bags or lavender packs. You won’t experience a cooked or burnt smell over time, as lupins are odour free. They are also allergy free, 30% lighter in weight, and most importantly, retain their heat longer. This makes them ideal for use on clients during treatments. Once you have finished massaging each area, cover with your towel or linen as usual, and place your Wili Heat Bag on top. Your clients will love the added sensory touch and muscle relief, and will find it particularly soothing on areas like lower back or neck and shoulders. Our favourite Lupin option is Wili Heat Bags, hand made in South Australia and supplied in some of the cutest prints imaginable.
A particularly helpful addition to sports or deep tissue massage, Zen Liniment Spray is the 100% natural alternative to deep heat, not to mention much easier to apply in its handy spray format. Zen can assist with not only muscle pain but Arthritis and rheumatism, minor sporting injuries, joint pain, bruises and sprains and muscle spasms. Made with 8 traditional herbal medicines and 2 essential oils, it provides quick relief and a fresh minty fragrance. Just be sure to check in with your clients before spritzing, as this mixture is quite potent!
Aveda Stress-Fix Composition Oil
This could very well be the ultimate in relaxation massage mediums! Aveda’s Stress Fix could be used standalone or in addition to your usual massage medium as a soothing essential oil alternative. Made with a blend of certified organic sunflower and jojoba seed oils, it’s ideally suited for a nut-free environment, and combines certified organic lavender, lavandin and clary sage to create your most blissful massage yet. Designed for use on body, scalp or even in the bath.
