Great Holistic Treatments

The word holistic is defined as emphasizing the importance of the whole and the interdependence of its parts. When applying the term holistic to skin care, it defines skin that is healthy, glowing … beautiful. Holistic approaches to skin care consider the health of the whole person, internally and externally – meaning nutrition, lifestyle and emotional factors.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there is an increasing interest in skin treatments that promote relaxation and well-being. As a result the employment of aestheticians that can provide these types of treatments are predicted to grow by an impressive 38 percent over the 2008 to 2018 period. So, it should not come as a shock that including holistic treatments on spa treatment menus has become customary, whether as a full-service menu item or as an add-on treatment.

In an effort to provide our readers with the means to improve themselves and their business we have included several different holistic treatments below with the hope that it will inspire new thoughts and ideas on how to update or revitalize your service menu.
