Contemplating a Back Wax?

Follow these Prep Steps and a back wax shouldn’t be that bad.

If you’ve had someone shave your back for you, please let it grow at least two to three weeks prior to your back wax appointment.

Avoid caffeine before your wax visit.

If you are taking an oral acne medication prescribed by the dermatologist, you cannot be waxed at all.

It is strongly recommended that you refrain from shaving your back going forward. Shaving toughens the hair making the wax more painful. The goal is to only wax the back so it will soften the hair and allow the hair growth to become sparser.

Please let us know if you’ve had a back wax before and whether or not you had any issues, i.e. break-outs on the back. This will allow us to determine which after products we will use to treat your back once the service is completed.

Seven Tips for Buying a Spa Gift Certificate She’ll Actually Use

Advice for Male Shoppers Looking for Spa Services as Gifts.

  • Find out the name of the spa she likes to visit.
  • Purchase the gift certificate for a dollar amount.
  • Your attempts to piece together her day of relaxation should really be left to her decision.
  • If you’ve waited until the last minute, call the spa and ask if the spa gift certificate can be purchased online so the gift certificate comes to you instantly via email.
  • Surprising her with a trip to the spa and dinner later may complicate matters. She needs to bring make-up, toiletries, and a fresh change of clothes, to feel her best for a night on the town.
  • Pressing for a same day appointment or begging the spa to squeeze her in on the actual day of her birthday will make the event more stressful for you and her.
  • Guys, we all know you’re well-intentioned in your efforts to surprise the woman you love. When calling a spa in a panic, make it easier on yourselves and present a spa gift certificate to your lady. Trust me; she can handle everything from there.

If I Were JFK’s Massage Therapist

November 22, 2013 will mark the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination. There have been several shows discussing the Kennedy White House years on television as the anniversary nears. One piece I saw discussed how much pain he was in from day to day. From the brace he wore under his clothes to the pill popping cocktail he ingested every day, I am convinced that massaging John F. Kennedy would be a massage therapist’s dream:
