More bang for the buck.

How do you give your clients more bang for their buck? Aromatherapy, heat, discounts off products, samples, hot towels? Furthermore, what do you consider to be more than just your touch?

Living healthier this year, my commitment.

I am striving to be more healthy this year. I did ok last year, but it wasn't sticking because I got just plain lazy. My books are fuller this year already, so I need to take better care of myself. I plan to get more exercise, eat more modestly, keep up Isagenix program, and get more massages! Here's to me!
