Blushing Towel Buff

Image courstesy of Rodolpho Zanardo

Happy Anniversary Sweetheart!

My client’s wife had treated him to a relaxing day of spa & barbering services for their anniversary. 

My job was to deliver a body polish service. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this service, it’s basically a full body scrub that leaves your skin feeling like silk. 😊

The service requires the client to be fully undressed. They lie on the massage table covered by a small towel over the groin area and another over the bust for women. 

Drifting away…

Now, during quiet services I tend to drift away in my thoughts and answer pressing questions. Questions like “what should I wear tomorrow?” or “I wonder what my dog is thinking right now?” or “why does the sun lighten our hair but darken our skin?”

It makes the time pass and before you know it you’ve exfoliated 90% of your 6-foot-tall client who happens to be blessed with 2-inch strands of body hair over everything but his palms and soles.  

Zoned OUT.

After scrubbing away at his limbs and torso, I followed up with a swift towel buff. I like using a rolled-up towel to wipe away the granules. To prevent the granules from getting into his eyes I covered them with a small towel, much like a blindfold. I then recite the usual – “for this next step, I will need you to close your eyes”. 

I was so zoned out in my thoughts as I whipped the towel into my hands and began to wind it like a jockey in the locker room. When I turned back to the bed, I realized that I had whipped his groin towel off and left him laying blindfolded, motionless, and butt naked on the table!  

I quickly threw the towel on him and apologized through my uncontrollable laughter, his response “It’s ok, I just wasn’t sure what was gonna to happen next!”.

Manis and Pedis: A Good Skill to Learn.

Mani Pedi Course

Why are manicures and pedicures a good skill to learn?

…because there is more to Manis and Pedis than painting nails! Nail Technicians require knowledge in the muscular and skeletal system, knowledge in nail anatomy and diseases, as well as fine motor control skills.

Offering Manicures and Pedicures as a service requires your awareness and responsibility in keeping up with facility requirements and infection control.

It’s not all science though, you also get to paint nails!

Let your imagination run wild! Your Nail Art is your signature.

TIPS ON MARKETING YOUR SERVICE…FOR FREE

We wish you much success as you embark on offering this new service. Remember, word-of-mouth is the best form of advertising.

After careful psychological analysis, we concluded that a relaxing massage is amongst the top steps in your procedure to be remembered and bragged about by your clients.

Show off your massage moves.

-EXECUTIVE SPA GROUP-

Developing your massage routine will come with time as your confidence grows. We like to prepare you with a repertoire of moves to get you started on a budding beauty career!

  • Effleurage: Light – medium pressure is applied. Flowing pressure directed towards the core. Used to warm the muscles and connective movement between steps.
  • Petrissage: Medium – heavy pressure. Kneads muscle over the underlying bone. It aids in relieving pressure, tension, and heat the muscles.
  • Vibration: Quick shaking motion with med-heavy pressure. Loosens the muscles and relieves tension.
  • Percussion: Fast hacking or pounding motion using with firm pressure. Muscles are “shocked” into releasing tension. Incorporated into end of the massage. 
  • Friction: Medium – heavy pressure. Rolls muscle against muscle itself. Aids in relieving pressure, tension, and heats muscles. 

Learn this and so much more! Register for our Manicures and Pedicures Course.
