    Spa interview

    Hi, I’m newly qualified and have my first interview next week as a spa therapist and don’t know what to wear. Usually I’d wear a smart outfit (I.e. skirt and smart top/blouse) but as part of the interview I will be doing a massage so I’d be more comfortable in a tunic as it gives me more...

    Massage lower back

    I’ve recently started massage and have a routine I use loosely between clients. I’m just unsure of working on the lower back. I work on the shoulders and over the glutes however i feel I’m slightly missing the area of the back (kind of where the kidneys are) as I’m worried about hurting the...

    Mini treatments

    Hi :) I’m thinking of offering mini treatments so mini arm massage, mini leg massage and mini face massage etc. I was thinking £5 for both arms? So roughly 5 mins on each and same for legs, do you think that’s reasonable or too cheap? Also could I go straight into the face massage? No cleansing...

    Face massage routine

    I’m adjusting my face massage routine for facials ( going by my professional book which has the moves in) so many college teach to do each move 3 or 6 times. I was just wondering if doing each move 12 times is too much in massage? I’ve had good feedback so far but wondered is there a genuine...

    Pop up massage shop?

    Hello everyone. I’m just starting out my own business in beauty and massage. I’m thinking of ways to promote myself. I thought pop up stations in work offices or even gyms could be a good idea where I could offer my massage services and taster services to promote myself and get my name out. How...

    Pillow cases getting covered in oil!

    Hi guys and girls, bit of a random one so not sure I'll get much response. We get a lot of massage booked in and use pillows during the treatment to support various areas of the body, unfortunately they are getting saturated and stained with oil. No matter what colour we buy, how much couch...

    Heated water couch topper?

    It’s a strange place to post but there wasn’t really a great place to post this. I remember years ago going to a spa that had a heated blanket but it also had water in it. To give extra comfort. I have searched hi and lo for this and can’t find it anywhere. I don’t want the hydrothermal...

    Pregnancy massage

    I’m looking to offer pregnancy massage in our salon but would like to use a pregnancy pillow rather than massaging with client on her side etc. Can anyone recommend courses that would offer something like this please? Thanks!
