50 DAYSPA | MAY 2015 SPOTLIGHT ON... Many professionals prefer sugar bases, but I'm par- tial to salt scrubs. I also look for formulations that incorporate minerals, such as magnesium, potassium and calcium. What body scrub treatments does your spa offer, and what do your clients love about them? Nunes: The crisp aroma of the Éminence Pear & Green Apple Sugar Scrub makes it an L Spa team favorite. All of the brand's scrubs gently buff away dry, itchy patches while infusing the skin with oils and antioxi- dants. Our Revive Therapy (45 min./$105) provides clients with a full-body buff that boosts circulation. Orndoff: Our current menu staples are the FarmHouse Fresh Citrus Grass Salt Scrub and Coconut Beach Body Polish—these aromas truly represent our local island environment. The Coconut Cabana Body Treatment (50 min./$120) uses a scrub blend of coconut and pineapple, followed by a honey-yogurt oatmeal mask and fi nished with a shea butter moisturizer. Gibson: We use the M'lis BUFF scrub before wraps to leave skin softer and more vibrant—it rejuvenates the skin and removes dry and damaged patches while enhancing the inch-loss results our clients are seeking. Our Body Wrap Treatments (60 min./$95) include a buffi ng, wrap application and body massage. Yaron: I'm from Israel so I love Shira Esthetics prod- ucts, which incorporate salt from the Dead Sea. My clients really seem to notice the active ingredients working to eliminate their dry, dead skin. Our Dead Sea Mineral Mud Wrap (60 min./$165) features a Dead Sea salt and oil scrub and a Dead Sea mud wrap. Once the wrap is applied, the client relaxes in a steam capsule while the therapist performs a scalp massage. How do you convince clients to pay for a service that they could perform in their own shower? Nunes: A body therapy is exactly that: a therapy. At our spa, scrubs are rituals designed to take guests on a sense-stimulating journey, beginning with a mind- calming exercise. Also, our therapists understand the importance of sharing knowledge with their clients. That's the draw—we hold the expertise. Orndoff: My therapists and front desk team have all received at least one of our body scrub services— the best way to talk about them is through personal experience. Packages incorporating scrub and mask treatments feature the best of both worlds: clients see all the visible benefi ts—brightening, tightening and toning—plus they experience the stress relief of a massage. Yaron: Body scrubs can, and should, be performed at home, therefore their retail component is valuable to us too. We encourage all our clients to purchase the scrub used in their treatment. However, the post- scrub experience of laying in the steam chamber can't be replicated at home. That's the reason why they come back to the spa.
