Visiting the spa isn't just about pampering anymore. Many go because they seek wellness treatments or want to improve their well-being. One way to capitalize on this trend is to include nutritionals (vitamin supplements) in your treatments and in your retail area. They provide a special opportunity for you to increase revenue growth, reinforce your spa's wellness message, and stay on trend.
How to include nutritionals at the spa:
From treatment add-ons to retail impulse purchases, nutritional supplements are vitamin-packed multitaskers. Here are a few ways to fold them into your spa's wellness initiatives:
Complement skin care treatments with beautifying supplements.
Because it's growing in popularity as a beauty supplement, collagen is listed on Well + Good's Top Wellness Trends of 2017. Known as one of the best supplements for glowing skin, collagen peptide drink powder and capsules, such as Sparkle, help skin appear smooth, healthy, and hydrated.
Present your guests with a little something extra to enhance their services while driving point-of -sale retail purchases. Before or after your clients' esthetic treatments, offer a refreshing collagen beverage and explain the benefits associated with it. Be sure to let them know that it's available in your retail area to complement their at-home skin care regimens.
Need a recipe? Try this one:
1/2 cup frozen mango
1 frozen medium banana
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 ½ cups of water
1 Tbs. of coconut oil
1 Tbs. of flax meal
1 Tbs. of chia seeds
Dash of vanilla essence
1 scoop of Sparkle Collagen with Verisol®
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Reinforce your spa's message of wellness with liquid supplements.
Liquid supplements are a great choice for impulse purchases in your retail area. Liquid supplements that target specific needs are especially tempting. Make sure you choose a sugar-free, gluten-free brand—I Am Enlightened Creations®, for example—to cater to those with dietary restrictions.
Nutritionals are natural, healthy alternatives to sugary sodas, skim lattes, and energy drinks. They help reinforce the healthy lifestyle and wellness that your spa encourages.
Ease the effects of travel with personal oxygen and natural energy supplements.
Travel is tough, stressful, and exhausting. Whether your clients are planning a trip or arriving at your location, they'll need some assistance recuperating from hectic airports and long car rides. Lightweight portable oxygen, like Oxygen Plus®, is a refreshing way to help combat their fatigue, and it's a must-have for higher elevations.
A natural energy boost may also be appropriate for travelers hoping to shift from jet-lagged to wellness. Green coffee bean extract gives a lift without causing jitters. Lyft® “clean caffeine” stir sticks, for instance, are a good choice because they're free of extra calories, artificial flavors, and preservatives—only pure green coffee bean extract. Packaged in tubes, they're great for travel because they fit into a purse or a carry-on bag.
In addition to travel, these caffeinated swizzle sticks make a fun, swanky statement when served in cocktails at your spa's special events.
Nutritionals at your spa are a differentiator.
Nutritionals can be a unique wellness focus for spa professionals. From providing an extra dose of vitamins to encouraging a healthy glow, these natural products benefit clients from the inside out while reinforcing your spa's wellness values.
