10-minute consult at Alberta Gift Fair yields 21.5% increase in sales

Geraldine Barrett, owner of Sunrise Wellness Spa in Unity, Sask., along with her staff, Verlie Deuchar and Ellie Leidl, attended the Alberta Gift Fair last August and chose to sit in on my seminar on “What to Put Where and Why”. Geraldine had been unhappy with her feature wall that displayed Eminence Organic Skin Care, however she could not see any alternative.

During the session, the Sunrise team saw how implementing effective category plans enabled retailers to create effective merchandise displays. At the end of the session, Geraldine raced to sign up to my 20-minute consultation. Unfortunately, all my sessions were booked, however, I accommodated the Sunrise team with just 10 minutes to spare before I had to catch my flight.

Geraldine pulled out photos of their current displays while Ellie drew a rough floor plan. I discussed basic options for colours, a simple fixturing plan with an optimum product intensity, the concept of focal points and the strategic use of triangular shapes. More importantly, I brought up the importance all these elements combined have in enhancing perceived product values.

 

Within 5 days of the session, the ladies had all their shelves emptied. The slat wall panel was removed and all other fixtures sold. The team limited the quantity displayed on their new set-up and stored the rest. They accomplished this feat within 12 days! In all, the project cost $1588. However, they sold some old fixtures for $630 resulting in a total cost of $958!

Sunrise Wellness Spa hosted their second annual Eminence Pajama Party on September 29 and the guests were indeed impressed with the spacious shopping area. Their Eminence Regional Trainer, Christel Salamon from Churchbridge, Sask. was taken aback upon seeing the new display. Comments were most favourable with a lot of wows.

The results: Compared to last year’s same 12 day period after the Pajama Party, sales went up 21.5%

Renovations are Complete. Come and See!

When attending the Alberta Gift Fair in Edmonton we attended a seminar by Natalie Tan with the topic of what to put where and why. Natalie focused on effective planning for today’s customer. She mentioned that IKEA was her go to business to get shelving to create this new effective look. At the end of the seminar Natalie offered a Free 20 minute consultation to anyone who wanted help. Geraldine left her business card hoping that we would be chosen. After lunch the Spa name was announced over the speaker system and we made our way to the show room. Geraldine quickly opened her phone and showed pictures of the spa and the wall she was wishing to change. Before they knew it Natalie had a plan on paper with ideas of color, position of the shelves using the triangle focal point and to add plenty of lighting. Shopping began as soon as we left the Gift Show to set the plan in motion.

 

 

Geraldine decided on shelving from Home Hardware, drawers from Home Depot and additional shelves from IKEA. Shopping continued in their local Guy’s Furniture to find the right side table and lamp to compliment the waiting area. A peaceful sanctuary to serve tea in beautiful new tea service sets.

 

 

 

Sunrise Wellness Spa has a new and inviting look to Eminence collection

 

Dennis Fisher patiently took 2 days installing each shelf. 

The feature wall is very inviting to you our customer. Each Eminence Line is strategically placed so we can professionally address your skin concern.

When do you use Tea Tree Oil?

When do you use Tea Tree Oil?

Here are some great uses for tea tree oil.

Acne Treatment

Tea tree oil can be used as a preventative measure, but more impressively as a cure when it comes to those dreaded pimples. It serves as a natural alternative for over the counter products, and possesses unique disinfecting and soothing properties which won’t strip the skin of its natural oils. Dab it on – for a quick spot-reduction, pour a few drops onto a cotton bud or pad, and dab the affected area. Don’t rinse for at least a few hours, ideally leave overnight. The oil should easily penetrate into the sebaceous glands and unblock them, wiping out infection-causing bacteria and reducing redness and swelling. Slather it on – Add a few drops to a face mask, preferably clay, and slather it on. Ideally leave it for 20 minutes before rinsing. Pat face dry with a clean towel and apply a moisturizer. Make sure you’re moisturizing with a cream preferably designed for sensitive or acne-prone skin.

Laundry Hack

Keep things fresh and sanitary by adding a few drops to each laundry load. Preferably use an unscented detergent and no fabric softener. Say goodbye to that strong chemical odor of most detergents, and hello to all-natural cleanliness. Note how once you start using this method, your clothes, sheets and towels stay fresher for longer. Extra tip – Stay low-key on the detergent use and put your towels through a baking soda and white vinegar cycle once a month. The vinegar and baking soda work to remove detergent, microbe and odor build-up, improving fiber absorbency. The result is spa-quality fluffy towels that smell as fresh as a spring field! Simply add one cup of white vinegar to the load and run the wash through a hot cycle. When the cycle is done, add half a cup of baking soda and run the hot cycle again. Preferably dry in a tumble dryer to fluff up the fibers.

Congestion Relief

If you’re blocked up from a common cold, tea tree can be a great relief treatment! The antiseptic properties work to help fight the microbes while the anti-inflammatory qualities help reduce swelling of the membranes lining the respiratory passages. Vaporize it – If you have a vaporizer or oil burner, you can let it evaporate throughout the day, especially useful at night. Mix tea tree with lavender for a relaxing effect at night time. Steam it – Boil the kettle and pour yourself a hot mug of plain water. Place a few drops of tea tree essential oil into the mug and take deep, long breaths holding it up to your face. Steam works wonders to clear the sinuses, and is an effective method of reducing mucus build-up. A hot bath with tea tree oil is another way of getting that steam to relax the passages. Eucalyptus essential oil is another great alternative. Wear it – Place a few drops on your clothing, pillow case or a cloth and inhale it throughout the day. Reapply as often as required.

 

All-Natural Carpet Freshener

Most carpet cleaning products contain harmful ingredients that you wouldn’t want a baby crawling over, or a pet laying on. It’s just better for everyone if your fill your living space with natural alternatives rather than harsh chemicals. This cleaning method is not only cheaper and healthier, it actually keeps things fresher for longer without leaving that lingering synthetic fragrance we usually find after a deep cleaning. A homemade pet-safe and child-friendly cleaning agent can easily be concocted with an essential oil of your choice (or blend) and baking soda. Use this mixture to rid your living space of dust mites, creepy-crawly’s, bacteria, mold spores and odor Note – This is a very effective method of deep cleaning carpets, and needn’t be done more than once every 1 – 2 months. If you own pets, this is a great way of keeping the odor and microbes away from your upholstery, however, keep your pets out of the house or confined to one room while the powder sits. Bear in mind the powder does make your vacuum work harder, so don’t go overboard and maintain your machine as the instructions suggest.

  • ½ cup Baking Soda, 35 drops of Tea Tree essential oil
  • Add the desired amount of essential oil into a container of baking soda and shake well. Leave the mixture to sit overnight.
  • When ready to clean, pepper all carpeted areas with your mixture and let it sit for at least 15 minutes before vacuuming.

Tea Tree Oil is also a great aid in treating nail fungus. Apply a couple times a day until fungus is gone.

My Passion, My Vision, My Dream of a European Spa

I have a passion for natural wellness. I believe in living a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle.

After providing and completing 20 years of service in Massage Therapy to the community of Unity. I had the desire to add more value to my services.

I pursued Massage Therapy as a career because of all the help I received 38 years ago. I was so grateful and I wanted to help half as many people as the late Grace Thain from Mid Night Lake had helped over the span of 40 years. I believe I would and have provided a great service to Unity and District.

Once again I was faced with psoriasis and checked out all the options for treatment, there was little out there for me to choose from. Through research I found European Spas offered natural treatments for psoriasis. Twenty years ago there was no training in Saskatchewan so I ventured to acquire the training that I needed.

I went to Raleigh, South Carolina, and Minneapolis to get and understand developing a Spa. I had a number of plans and dreams were grandiose. I continued pursuing training for spa services. I then traveled to Oakland, California to learn about body wraps and different kinds of mud and how to wrap. There is an art to this

I journeyed to Las Vegas to the I SPA (International Spa Association) and there I gained many contacts and was overwhelmed with all the choices one had to make regarding products from all over the world! Here I connected with a company call Moor, which offers the most amazing mud that I still use in the Spa today.

My next journey was to Santa Fe, New Mexico where a German couple came to teach the Kniepe method of spa treatments. It was fascinating and exciting to learn all the health benefits that could be addressed through the use of Hot and Cold Water Treatments under high pressure. Learning that all showers and baths should end with ice cold water for great health benefits.

Other amazing body treatments that I learned about and continue to provide at the Spa:

  • Body Brushing using natural bristle brushes
  • Body Wraps using linen material, European mud, peat and seaweed from all over the world and from different depths of the oceans
  • Hydrotherapy using the Kniepe Method

These body treatments will help with different skin problems, calm nervous system reducing stress load on body, reduce swelling from legs, detoxify and re energize the body.

This in not magic or an overnight quick fix, it take time. To restore for body and to address any ailments the body has it take time. We suggest doing 6 consecutive treatments as well as setting up a specific home care system for 30 days. It is absolutely regenerating and reviving experience.

I continue to attend yearly Spa conferences in Vancouver or Vegas. One has to keep up with the industry. When I travel I go and experience different spa treatments to see what they are like and see if I would bring them into my spa.

Today there are many “Spas” but few that offer the treatment with water or all the mud treatments.

Call and Book your Body Wraps/ Exfoliation or Hydrotherapy Treatments.

Experience all of this right here in Unity!

My Facial

August 4, 2016

I was apprehensive before my first facial as I thought it would make my face very red.

Geraldine explained what every cream and masque contained – and about all the natural ingredients eg. citrus, kale, apricot….

All this was done on a warm bed while I was lying down comfortably.

There were cool and hot sensations. The chamomile lotion was calming.

My skin now looks smooth and is not red! I have booked another facial for September!

Bride to Be

Bride to Be

Over the years I have heard new brides share how little they remember of their wedding day.

Preparation is so intense and they want everything to be perfect. However; the bride forgets about herself….. To look after herself…. Eat Healthy. Get enough sleep. And book a few massage sessions to prepare starting 2-3 months prior to the wedding and the week of the wedding.

There are several ways the bride can do this:

These are some ideas that the bride to be has done in Sunrise Wellness Spa.

  1. 3 Generation Spa Day with the Bride to Be that included – mud wraps, full body massage and a facial. Each lady lived in different province so they spent this time reconnecting before the wedding.

2. A mature Bride to Be had her long-time friend attendees all meet at the spa to have a massage and facial. Three of her friends never knew one another so it was a time to meet and connect before rehearsal. They loved this idea and even had lunch in the Solarium.

3. Another Bride to Be organized her decorating committee at the hall and while they were decorating she came for a full body massage. This was her time to de-stress and enjoy her day as the queen.

  1. Yet another Bride to Be had to gift of a spa experience from her bridesmaids. They arranged for the Bride to Be to have a facial and a full body massage while her attendees had pedicures and facials. They enjoyed a nice lunch in the Solarium together.

Whatever helps you de-stress and relax you have to take time for it.

Your wedding is an important day in your life. Take the time to remember it.
