Cool Down Spa treatments

So, how “hot” is your spa? Are you running with the latest trends and technologies to help your guests to cool down? 

August is the month where the kids are off school, and thousands of your frazzled clients are trying to keep them occupied whilst enjoying the summer heat. Want an offering to help keep those parents cool and calm? 

Then look no further than the use of flotation tanks to aid their quality of sleep during these summer months. 

This unique approach to health and well-being allows your client to enter a state of soothing tranquillity. Floatation tanks have proven to be one of the most effective ways to enhance mood. This is due to the increased levels of dopamine and endorphins during a treatment, leaving clients with less physical pain and a heightened sense of happiness! 

Your clients will benefit from the use additional mineral salts, allowing them to feel feather light for days to come. 

Another fast growing technology is facial cryotherapy. This is an application using extremely cold temperatures to areas of the face for the purposes of skin rejuvenation. 

Ian Saunders, MD of Cryoaction said “The treatment causes the blood vessels to constrict and dilate which flushes toxins and impurities out and boosts the supply of oxygen in skin cells. This process also reduces any inflammation to the area and invigorates the applied area, reduces acne, minimises lines and wrinkles, and increases collagen production. 

There are many other benefits to Cryotherapy which can be introduced into your spa for results driven preventative ageing treatments, with no health risk. 

So with a two-day training course and a low financial investment into purchasing a machine, your therapists could be offering the latest non-evasive treatments to offer safe and effective ways to maintain health & well-being for the skin, body and mind”.
