As not every client will enjoy your mainstream therapies, it’s a good idea to offer an alternative treatment or two on your menu. These alternatives provide your spa with a unique selling point to help it stand out from the competition and attract new types of client. Here are five alternative treatments worth considering in order to expand your client base.
After childbirth, new mothers will be yearning for ways to revitalise their bodies. Seawater spa treatments are the ideal remedy, as hot water hydrotherapy relaxes sore muscles while cold water variants stimulate blood flow to the skin. Added to the more traditional body scrubs and massages, you’ll provide a much-needed post-natal package that is sure to relax new mothers.
More spiritually minded clients will be interested in alternative treatments such as crystal therapy. This works by placing gemstones on the body to target different chakras, opening auras and removing negative energies such as seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Red crystals or light are used to empower and uplift the spirit, for example, making a good alternative to light therapy.
Pulsed electro-magnetic field (PEMF) therapy is an alternative treatment designed to relieve stress. This works by laying clients on an electromagnetic mat or pillow that produces electromagnetic frequencies, stimulating the body’s magnetism. Depending on the frequency, this can help with sleep or even mental concentration. It can also speed up the healing process for bruises!
The Venik massage is an alternative treatment where the client is covered in oil, lies naked in a sauna, and then hit with oak or birch leafed branches. Whilst this may sound somewhat bizarre, it’s therapeutic to both clients and therapists in relieving stress. There is method to the madness, however, as the treatment aims to boost circulation and prevent the ageing of skin.
Vibration therapy makes for an intriguing alternative treatment for bones and muscles. This works by placing hand-held vibrating devices on areas such as client thighs or using vibrating massage chairs to contract and relax muscles. Specific vibrations can also cause the body to produce osteoblast cells, producing bone – a tried and tested method to help astronauts increase bone density.
