Massage and facials go hand in hand to boost your spa and massage practice revenue

They go “hand in hand.” That’s the word about massages and facials, according to SpaFinder Wellness 365. Among beauty and spa trends to expect in 2016, SpaFinder forecasts that techniques usually thought of only for facials, such as masks, exfoliation, hydration, etc., increasingly will be delivered during a massage.


Offering a comprehensive treatment such as a facial and a massage can help boost revenue among current clients and attract new ones to your spa or massage practice. That’s why you’ll need to get out the word. Leverage your social media channels to promote the new treatments and build interest and enthusiasm. Consider creating a video, which you can add to your website and promote on social media, to highlight the new offerings. You might even want to offer a discounted package to introduce current and new clients to the services.


Your retail sales also can benefit from the combined service. Make sure to discuss with your clients the products you are using and point out the at-home options available so that they can extend the benefit of the treatment between visits.


To help your client escape winter boredom and give them a radiant treatment from head to toe, try:


Fresh and Full Hydration

Gently polish to lift away dry skin accelerating cell renewal and provide an aroma-therapeutic body wrap for total mind-body healing.  While relaxing and reviving the body give a refreshing face exfoliation and massage that will soften, tone and nourish skin that’s been exposed to the harsh winter months.  Finish with a luxurious full body massage.
