Nectar Essences and Mana Artisan Botanics hosted an event for spa directors, managers, and lead therapists at Makana Esthetics Academy on Oahu, Hawaii. The Elevate Healing Event was a fun day of education, treatments, and networking. The two companies showcased their products, as well as performed treatments and classes about vibrational healing, gemstone therapy, and CBD – the hottest trends in the spa industry.
“The goal of the event was to spend more time with buyers and introduce them to our products. Both Nectar Essences and Mana Artisan Botanics were developed in a therapeutic environment to support holistic well-being. In order to effectively share our philosophies, we decided to host our own event – allowing us to share various tools and techniques aligned with energy medicine, aromatherapy, flower essences, gem elixirs, and the use of CBD in the spa environment. We wanted to create the space and place for spa directors and their teams to learn about and take time to experience our products,” says Jenny Pao, founder of Nectar Essences.
Nectar Essences’ morning session focused on a series of experiences using aromatherapy activated with flower essences and gem elixirs, combined with breath work, visualization and sound healing. The hands-on demonstration of the Quantum GEMFLEUR technique was the hit of the session, as it taught a game-changing healing technique that is easily added into any spa treatment. Calm+ remedy combined with gemstone charged massage oil were applied to activation points on the hands and feet. Attendees witnessed the volunteers relaxing within one minute of holding the activation points. Spa directors were excited to take this energy healing techniques back to their therapists. Select buyers also experienced 30-minute treatments with Nectar Essences healing remedies.
The Mana Artisan Botanics team led an afternoon session educating guests on how to choose effective and sustainable, CBD-rich hemp products. Attendees learned about the company’s topicals and ingestibles, as well as CEO Steve Sakala’s regenerative agriculture farm in Kona, Hawaii. The team also shared helpful information, such as the difference between full-spectrum hemp and isolates and the right questions to ask to ensure purity and potency. Attendees received chair massages with the company’s hemp massage oil and hemp balm.
“Spa directors are overwhelmed with all of the CBD products that are coming on the market and they want to know what they can trust,” says Steve Sakala, CEO of Mana Artisan Botanics. “My hope is that educating the Hawaii spa industry will encourage them to demand organic, sustainably-grown cannabis products. To further this goal, we joined the Hawaii Spa Association to continue as a resource for the islands as they implement CBD programs. We are grateful that the HI-Spa board members participated in the event!”
