THIS IS NOT A DEBATE
I would like input from those of you who offer these services either as providers or salon/spa owners.
Our manager brought in a consultant who designed new protocols for the nail spa. The consultant is a former nail professional.
I like the new manicure and pedicure structures with one exception: all the nail professionals are expected to perform the exact same massage techniques. We go live with it by weekend. I have to admit to feeling like a bit of a robot. I liked the uniqueness of my massage, as did my clientele.
The massage techniques are mapped out for us. For instance, Figure 8 - 6 times each hand, 3 times through, use a long stroke..... Ankle - 20 times circle the ankle bone..... Achilles tendon - 20 times alternate your left and right hand..... etc. etc.
