CLOSED MARCH 17TH – APRIL 8TH

As I write this Blog, we are closing down the Spa for two weeks to do our part to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. It is a very unprecedented times. UPDATE – we have just been informed that we are a non-essential service and now will be closed until April 8th.

Everyone has been touched by this Pandemic, parents with children off school and no day care, workers that are unable to work and worried about their income, Big Businesses, and Small Businesses.

As a Small Business owner, I have been through an ice storm at my busiest time of year, Christmas, a fire that shut us down for 4 days, a horrific tragedy that rocked our world to the core.

My fears have always been for the health and well-being of our clients and staff. But this is bigger than just us and we have to look at the big picture. We have to do what’s best for everyone.

We will survive this; we will stop this virus but it will take all of us to do it.  Be SAFE.

MARCH BREAK TIME AGAIN

It is March Break time again! Since I have always had teachers in our family, March Break has always been a time for family vacations. Most expensive time to go away, which I remind my teachers in the family.

Being with family is such a gift. It’s not as much of what we do but that we are together. The tropical vacations are nice but this year I am considering going way outside the box and go ice fishing with my family. I’ll let you know how that works out.

The Staycation is still very popular with everyone and Spa Sedona is always here to create that time away for you.

Please remember to join us March 14th to Donate to Horizon House on behalf of our Krissy.

 

 

 

ALL TYPES OF LOVE FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

When making up the packages for Valentine’s Day month, the one Package was the Romance Package. The more I thought about it the more I thought that this package would appeal to a limited number of our clients. Romance meant it was for a romantic involved couple. But there are more types of love than romantic. There is love for a best friend, a sister or brother, daughter or son. Or it could be someone that you just love being together with, a neighbour, a sorority sister, co-worker, another parent, member of your church or a friend.

So we are celebrating at Spa Sedona the Month of LOVE. Our hope for you this February is that your life is blessed with all types of LOVE. And don’t forget LOVE for yourself.

Happy Valentine’s Day

PS – I changed it to the “TOGETHER PACKAGE”.

This is me and my son Jeff.

WISHING YOU A HEALTH AND HAPPYNESS FOR 2020

FROM ALL OF US A SPA SEDONA OUR WARMEST WISHES FOR 2020

GIVE THE GIFT OF HEALTH THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

When we think of giving a Spa Gift Card for a present at Christmas, do we think we are giving a gift of pampering or improving someone’s health?

In the past people did think that a gift of “a trip to the Spa” was a pampering treat.

But things have changed. We now understand that the “power of touch” is way more than just pampering. The “power of touch” has health benefits such as, lowering your blood pressure, releases endorphins in the brain to make us feel good, relaxes tense muscles and much more.

Seniors are who I see benefiting from the “power of touch” the most. Whether it’s a Pedicure, Manicure, Massage or Facial, it’s good for their health.

You are giving more than a gift, you are giving Health and Well-being.

To all our wonderful Guests

Have a Safe and Healthy Holiday

FROM THE SPA SEDONA FAMILY

“USE IT OR LOSE IT”

It’s that time of year again when I remind you that if you do not use your Health benefit for massage you will lose it by the end of the year.

Part of your health benefits may include Massage by a Registered Massage Therapist. Insurance companies have realized that Massage is beneficial to the health of their clients.

Here are some of the benefits of massage:

1) Increases circulation to ease muscle pain

2) Reduces tension & stress

3) Relieves Anxiety & Depression

4) Improves sleep

5) Relieves posture stress from sitting

6) Lowers Blood Pressure

So do something good for yourself!

We are booking up fast and spaces are becoming limited. Book today and try to be flexible for daytime appointments as most nights and Saturdays are taken.

GIVING THE GIFT OF “AN EXPERIENCE”

At Christmas you have heard me say that giving an “Experience” rather than “stuff” has become what more and more people are wanting. Giving the gift of a Spa Experience gives them a memory and a health benefit.

Taking my own advice, instead of giving my grandkids “toys and stuff” I would take them on a trip. I decided when each of my grandkids turn 11 years old I would take them to Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Florida. This past week was our first trip with my oldest granddaughter, Charley and my daughter, Stephanie. We had a fantastic time. To quote Charley on our return “This trip was a life experience, I am so glad that this could all happen with you! Love you so much!”

It was all worth it to see those words in her text. We created a memory that we will always have.

SOLUTION FOR LEG CRAMPS

Do you suffer from cramps in your legs in the night? I have the solution for you.

I came across a product that I highly recommend for leg cramps, stiffness in joints and joint pain. Recently I had a problem of waking in the night with cramps in my lower legs. Plus when I woke in the morning my lower leg would be sore.

One of our product lines is CryoDerm which the RMT’s recommend for muscle pain. CryoDerm has now come out with “Magnesium Calming Cream”. The ingredients are Dead Sea Salts & Minerals, MSM, Arnica, Boswellia, & Ilex. Magnesium is derived from Pure Dead Sea Salts and delivers 80% of elemental Magnesium through the skin, unlike Magnesium supplements where only 4% of the Magnesium may be absorbed by the body.

I first started using the Magnesium Calming Cream for my broken ankle when it would swell or stiffen which worked fantastic. After a few nights with the leg cramps, I gave the Magnesium Calming Cream a try. It was amazing, stopped the pain of the cramp and no pain in the morning. Plus I’m not getting cramps as often.

We just received more stock so drop in and pick up a bottle. Price is $38 for a 4oz bottle

DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PUTTING ON YOUR SKIN?

I’m reading the book “Grain Brian” which is about the effects of Gluten on your brain. I was surprised to read that Gluten is used in other things other than food, such as Medications, beauty products and vitamins. Gluten in beauty product is what caught my eye.

Over 8 years ago I was diagnosed with gluten sensitivity after being tested for food allergies for the crippling fatigue I was suffering from. Once on a gluten free diet other things changed, my heart burn went away, bloating went away and the fatigue was a thing of the past.

The thought that gluten is in my beauty products was scary and I went directly to my suppler to find out if our [comfort zone] and Jane Iredale is gluten free. This was their response:

“Of course!   Yes, [comfort zone] is gluten free, paraben free and chemical free.  What sets [comfort zone] apart from other “natural” skincare brands we believe is the science and research behind it.   Many “natural” brands are just that, natural ingredients in a face cream, but are they working together to provide results?  Also, as you know, the products and treatments are developed to work for your mind, body and soul.  From the Tranquillity welcome and massage techniques, so it is a wellness experience that will also give great results!”

Jane Iredale is also gluten free, paraben free and chemical free as well.”

You can rest assured our products and treatments are healthy for your skin, even from gluten.

  

POWDER-ME SPF – DRY SUNSCREEN

Welcome to summer, a time for vacation, sun, golf, cottage fun and a lot more time outside.

Sunscreen has become so important to protecting our skin during the summer weather. When I was at the hairdresser last week I heard another client describing how her sunscreen was running into her eyes when she was sweating and how much it hurt.

That is always a big problem with liquid or even spray Sunscreen. Golfers always complain about this.

The sunscreen I recommend and love is the Jane Iredale “Powder-Me SPF”.   It’s a dry sunscreen SPF 30. It doesn’t run into your eyes or come off when you sweat. Plus Dry Sunscreen is so much easier to put on.

This summer Jane Iredale has come out with a new shade of the Powder-Me SPF called NUDE. It has now become my favourite shade and is completely invisible on my skin.

Jane Iredale foundations and BB creams all have an SPF of 25. This provides protection to your face on a daily bases. Jane was a pioneer in making sure SPF was in her makeup.

Enjoy your summer and remember to protect you skin.
