We are always in search of the absolute best products and services that we could offer our clients.  On this wonderful journey, we have been poked, prodded, manipulated, squeezed, electrified, pinched and sand blasted.  As well as have been covered in every product known to man that claimed to make us feel better, look younger and be smaller!  We did the foot work, we did the homework and we spent the money in order to be able to bring you products and equipment that are affordable for you and deliver the results your clients are seeking.

Andrea learned quite fast that the “build it and they will come” mentality of owning a business was not at all like the Kevin Costner movie with the baseball diamond in the middle of a corn field.  So learning to market her business and teaching others as well has become a passion.  “It is not complicated to market your business, but persistent and consistent marketing is the key to the success of any business.” . . .  And as you probably already know, your family and friends will only “humor” you and frequent your business for only so long!

“Once you realize that it is cheaper to keep the existing and happy client than it is to constantly advertise and market to ‘maybe’ prospects, you will no longer have to spend your hard earned dollars on ‘hope’ marketing.” 

Andrea’s driving force and passion is teaching Spa and Salon Owners everything she has learned over the past almost two decades.  Not only to provide and perform profitable services that their clients will rave about, but to share the exact same Systems, Services and Marketing Strategies that she used to grow her business from one to three locations so other Spa and Salon Owners can do the same.

    Hi Andrea,

    I wanted to know how you keep the infrared body wrap clean? Do you just open it up and hose it down? Is there a collection unit for sweat? I don’t have one yet but I am considering getting one.

    Thank you

      Hi Sequoia. No this is no collection unit for an infrared body wrap. What I use are plastic drop cloths that can be purchased from any store that sells paint. I use the ones that are 10 X 10 and come in a roll. You can either just lay in there naked or with panties and a t-shirt on. I do not recommend a bra as the metal parts can become hot. By using the infrared wrap this way, you will be able to really see how much liquid your body gets rid of. I personally like to wear thin cotton pajamas and let the sweat collect on the fabric.

      Then when you are done, simply throw the plastic in your recycle bin. If any liquid spills on the blanket, just wipe clean with some disinfectant.

      Remember to drink about 16 ounces of water before you use the infrared body wrap and do not eat anything at least 2 hours prior to the infrared session.

      I hope this helps.
