Old Man Winter will soon be knocking on the door. While a cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows is inviting, the winter months wreak havoc on skin, face, and hair. So, it is imperative for you as a salon owner to be fully prepared for the winter season and to ensure that special winter spa treatments are made available in your spa menu.

Whether your clients are pro-winter or anti-winter, a special winter spa menu has something for everyone, especially for warmth lovers! Include some of these luxe pampering treatments and your clients will end up feeling relaxed, revived, and replenished with these services.

1. Hot Chocolate Massage

Who says no to chocolate? There is something wonderfully enticing about chocolate that draws everyone to it. Which is why hot chocolate oil massage is a perfect spa option for winters. It is a luxurious indulgence for the senses. With this massage your clients will experience total pleasure as their body is immersed in one of nature’s most sumptuous treats. Carried out using traditional Mexican herbal compresses along with chocolate, this spa treatment will leave your client feeling rejuvenated. It works well to relieve muscular cramps and improve body’s blood circulation, thereby giving your client a glowing skin. The best part is it is a mood lifter!

2. Abhyanga Therapy

This is a spa ritual, which is so luxuriously relaxing, so blissfully comforting that it will rev up your client’s body and mind, gearing them up for peak performance. It not only rejuvenates the skin, but also relaxes the mind and heals the body from within. This Ayurvedic massage is traditionally performed by professionals who select suitable oils meant to address the client’s ailments if any. It is one of the most effective and relaxing spa treatments, which you must include in your menu for this winter season.

3. The LED facial

Treat your clients with this ‘happy lamp’! We’re talking LED light therapy, of course, which does as much to rejuvenate the skin as it does the mood. The infrared light works to stimulate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production – resulting in a smoother, tighter, plumper visage.


4. The Infrared Sauna

You will find clients who would rather sweat it out in a sauna than a hot yoga class. And if that’s the case, having an infrared sauna in your spa is a win-win for you and for them! Its benefits range from detoxification to weight loss and skin purification, by way of soothing various conditions such as eczema. Infrared saunas help the body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. This one’s a deeply relaxing, and an ultimate way to warm up on a winter’s day.

5. The Cryotherapy

While it may be more invigorating than relaxing, the beauty benefits of Cryotherapy are plentiful. Cryotherapy, more generally known as cold therapy, is a method of medical therapy involving extremely cold temperatures. The science behind it is simple – cold reduces inflammation and helps with circulation. Extreme cold tightens, tones, and smoothes skin. It stimulates the circulation and provides a boost of oxygen, which encourages collagen and elastin synthesis, and revives the complexion. Skin is retextured, with the appearance of pores diminishing, and feels firmer. This results of this treatment have everything amazing written all over it and it should absolutely be incorporated in your spa menu!

6. Almond and Hot Milk Pedicure

Lactic acid in milk works to remove the roughness from the feet. It also targets nerve ends and a soothing massage alongside helps relieve the tension from the tips. The treatment is completed with a deep almond oil foot massage. Almond oil is one of the best natural moisturizers that transform rough, dry and tired feet into something that is truly nourished and beautiful.

7. Hammam Spa

The hammam, also known as the Turkish hamam or Turkish bath, is the Middle Eastern variant of a steam bath, which can be categorized as a wet relative of the sauna. It is aimed at cleansing and relaxing – which many modern-day hammams still utilize. The steps of this treatment involve relaxing a hot steam room followed by full body scrubbing and soaking and a vigorous hot massage. This treatment is not only relaxing but will warm up your client to the bones.
