Hot Stone Massage

There are many variations of massages and techniques used. Hot stone massage has been one of the more popular services requested due to the elements of using heated stones. This type of massage can be more expensive than others, but it may be worth it.

Careful thought and consideration have gone into what type of stones would be best for this massage that will provide the greatest effect. The Basalt stone, which is a black volcanic rock that is smooth to the touch has been the preferred stone due to its ability to hold heat at longer periods of time. The smooth texture is naturally formed by the flowing river water.

50 professional stones

These stones come in different sizes, and each size is used and placed strategically on different areas of the body such as between the toes, down the spine, or on the calf muscles. Having heated stones placed on certain areas of tense muscles allows the massage therapist to penetrate the tissue deeper to help relieve the aches and pains. In addition to relieving pain, hot stone massage improves circulation, calms the nervous system, and assists with relieving pain from arthritis.

Although receiving this massage is mostly beneficial, there are some people who shouldn’t participate:

  • Pregnant women
  • Diabetics
  • Recently sunburned
  • Those taking blood thinners
  • Those with high blood pressure

At SpaSalon.us you can find these stones as well as proper equipment to pre-heat before use and store them after use.

Base Coat vs Top Coat

There is a difference between nail polish base coat and top coat. The base coat is like a primer ready to receive a layer of paint. Its ingredients are made to help the polish adhere to the nail. Some base coats have ridge fillers added for providing a smoother application. You may notice they can be both clear or milky in color. This is because different types also provides nourishment to the nail. With the different pigments used in polishes, the base coats helps to keep the nail from being stained.

Beyond Adhesive Basecoat

 

The top coat plays a different role. It creates a protective barrier on the polish to keep it from chipping. It provides that high gloss shine which helps the polish last longer. Some people choose not to use a colored nail polish, but instead, the top coat only in order to achieve a natural high shine. If you tend to mess up your freshly painted nails while wet, try finding a top coat that has quick drying features. This will help the colored nail polish dry and harden faster.

Dura Jet vs Magna Jet

Dura Jets are generally the standard jet system that’s provided with most pedicure spa tubs.  It is ideal for the everyday Spa & Salon use. This jet system is pipeless which means it’s more sanitary, and bacteria free, it is also very easy to install and clean.  It provides the right amount of massage pressure and jets to allow your customers a relaxing experience.

Dura Jet vs Magna Jet

Magna Jets are enhanced Dura Jets that are magnetic and removable. They have all of the features and benefits of the Dura Jet, the only difference is they are used when liners are placed in pedicure spa tubs for easier cleaning and in some cases the use of liners are mandated by State regulations.  The use of Magna Jets allow your customers to get the full effect of the jet features while enjoying their pedicure at your Spa & Salon.  Without the Magna Jet if liners are used customers will not be able to feel the jets and it may cause a strain on your jet system.
