Spa & Wellness Simplified:
2016 Spa Resource & Equipment Book
Released by Universal Companies
Universal Companies has launched its 2016 Spa Resource & Equipment Book, filled with a vast range of spa products and solutions backed up by expertise and support. The annual catalog is one of the most comprehensive resources available to spas and includes many products and supplies for the overall wellness of spa clients and staff.
“Our customers are leaders in the wellness movement. As such, they have an opportunity to position spa treatments as investments in maintaining a healthy lifestyle,” says Universal Companies Founder Marti Morenings. “We can help spas create a sense of wellness by bringing everything they need to run their business together in one place.” CEO Brenda Elliott adds, “We want to help our customers find everything they need to provide holistic treatments for their clients and care for themselves. Our products, supplies, retail, and equipment can not only help spas thrive, but they can also have a positive effect on individuals’ physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.”
In addition to 1,450 new products included in the 2016 edition of the Spa Resource & Equipment Book, there are also new, in-demand brands and thousands of most loved favorite products. Among the new products included in the catalog are more than 1,200 new emerging, trendy, eco-chic retail items to delight, inspire and boost spa boutique sales. Elliott explains, “We are excited about helping enhance your retail capabilities and bring wellness products to your clients. From a carefully sourced and curated collection of products that will quickly become your best sellers to four levels of retail consultation with spa sales expert Tracie Wertz and retail marketing specialist Bill Barczy, we want to help you dramatically increase retail sales and profitability.”
A Spa Equipment & Furniture section has been added to this year’s Spa Resource & Equipment Book, along with an all new Salon and Barber section. Other popular categories include: Skin Care, Lash & Brow, Massage & Body, Mani & Pedi, Waxing, Implements, and Apparel & Linens. In an ongoing effort to consistently deliver fresh spa solutions, many products are exclusive to Universal Companies.
The new Spa Resource & Equipment Book includes convenient checklists at the beginning of each section to build complete treatment rooms. For example, customers shopping for massage and body products can be sure they don’t forget anything with a checklist of products and supplies typically used to stock a massage treatment room. Customers can also find what they need easily with five ways to search the Spa Resource & Equipment Book, including a treatment index in the front.
A special Learn & Grow education section in the catalog highlights eLearning opportunities, online CEUs for massage therapists, and Universal Companies’ new training facility in Southern California—the Wellness & Beauty Learning Center. This first of its kind facility brings lifelong learning and advanced education to the spa industry. Complete with an equipment and product showroom, the unique Wellness & Beauty Learning Center offers spa professionals, vendors, and partners an excellent opportunity to connect.
