Oncology Esthetics
An esthetician's hands are the two most valuable tools of her trade. These skilled hands carefully stroke the face, neck, and shoulders of the client, and gently massage the head as well.

Results are the desired goal of any cosmetic product, whatever that goal may be.

Conflict Resolution In The Spa
The goal of every spa business is to have its customers leave happy. Ideally, clients should leave feeling better than they did when they arrived.

After all, mind and body wellness is deeply personal, and not all clients will relate completely with the practices of your business. Often, these complaints will arrive from a disparity in expectations, or a lack of communications during the service. Whatever the case may be, it is vital to the success and longevity of your business that you learn to maintain composure and handle complaints with compassion and resolve.
