Happy Valentine’s Day! Hearts and cupid notwithstanding, today is one of those special days of the year to let others know you are thinking about them. That’s what makes today special to me. We all want to know that someone cares. The nice part is that you can help your customers convey that message. A great way to tell someone you care is to treat them to a massage or skincare treatment.


I assume many of you are incorporating a special Valentine’s Day promotion into your marketing effort. Hopefully you are booked with lots of customer who are benefiting from someone else’s thoughtfulness and affection and couples who want a special time together. We have a special Valentine’s Day treatment protocol below. You also can see it in the Waterless Spa Treatment video we've just completed. It’s timeless so you can offer it today to customers who want to take advantage of it or give it as a gift anytime.

There is a wealth of treatments that tie in with annual holidays. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation, Christmas and the New Year are the obvious. Plan your marketing around these holidays to help your customers share the joy. There are other event-oriented marketing opportunities to consider such as a bridal party pre-wedding spa treatment or graduation, retirement, career change and more.


Your service is really an investment. When someone ‘gifts’ a friend or family member with a treatment, they are saying ‘I care about you and so I care your about health.’ That’s something we all should do 365 days of the year of course.
