Launch of Men’s SkinCare Line

On Tuesday, September 16th at SkinCatering Spa in Tower Square, We had our ‘Scotch on the Rocks‘ themed party  to launch our Men’s line of skincare. This party is the sequel to our “Cater To Your Entrepreneurial Spirit” party we held earlier this year to help raise funds to build our line of products. 
We honored the intention we set in February and it feels wonderful to show successful results just 7 months after the crowd-funding event!
  • Catering by Backstreet Bistro (opening soon in Market Square, downtown Springfield).

Springfield Does It Again!

Springfield, Massachusetts has a nickname called “The City Of Firsts” because of its numerous innovations (read more about them here.)

SkinCatering is proud to add to this list by offering what may be the first 4 Handed Couples Massage on the East Coast, if not the entire USA (though more research is needed to discover the truth of that last part.)

Four Handed Hawaiian Wave Massage

This ultimate, luxurious treatment feels like a celebration of your senses. Two therapists massage you at the same time, using techniques that simulate waves flowing across the body, helping you completely get out of your head, forget all your worries, and seriously relax!

Now imagine both of you receiving this amazing massage at the same time!

To give you and idea of what this massage looks like, here is an image of the 4 handed massage at the Matahari Beach Resort in Indonesia. 1 Room, 2 people, 4 massage therapists!

Social Spa trends

“It used to be that people went to spas to get away from it all and from each other. In recent years however spas have evolved to also cater to more social clients and serve as more common venues for bachelorette parties, book clubs and other get -togethers.”

–  American Spa March 2014

Looks like Skin Catering is spot on with its trends.

Giving the Gift of Wellness

Recently I read a blog post on the Huffington Post by Christella Morris about giving experiences as presents, instead of things.

Many retailers, and small business like my own, rely on gift giving during the holiday season to pay their employees (and their bills) during the slower months.  But I get what Christella is saying, and luckily I am in the spa industry where our services ARE magical experiences you can give.

When purchasing a gift certificate, you can choose a specific service experience, or you can simply do a dollar amount so your loved one can choose what they need to make them feel better.

This season, consider our new 6 week wellness program as a gift! 

The gift of better health is a win-win because in the end, everyone is happy.

Have a magical day, every day,

not just this holiday season!

The Team That Plays Together, Stays Together

Our team is fairly new.

Not to massage, not to the industry, just to each other.

Since we don’t get to spend a lot of time together in the same room, it’s fun to hang out and enjoy life outside the quiet massage room.

In September, some of us went to a cooking class (complete with wine) at 4 Brothers Gourmet Deli & Market in South Hadley!

Cheers to (part of) our team!
Amy, Leanne, Kim, and Ariel are pictured above.

Thanks to the chef brought in by the owner of 4 Brothers, Michelle, we learned to make crepes and homemade pasta, with sauce!

It’s important for our crew to live, laugh, and love while we play, so we can continue to bring you our best when we are at work!

Speaking of 4 Brothers Gourmet Deli, we are happy to say, we will be there one Thursday evening a month at one of their 2 monthly wine-tasting events, doing free chair massages (and offering a coupon for future services!)

The next three dates we will be there are:

  • October 10th, 5-7pm
  • November 7th
  • December 5th

Livin’ In The Hall of Fame

On September 26th, 2013 the leading ladies of Western Massachusetts banded together for our Winners Photo-shoot that will be featured in the October issue of the Western Massachusetts Women’s Magazine.

You remember my Karen’s Angels video compadres right? Karen Boyd of Mix 931, and Meghan Rothschild & Emily Gaylord of Chikmedia.

Well Karen, myself, and Emily all won for our categories (we’re putting all our efforts into votes for Meghan next year!) so we Harlem-Globe-Trotted down to the Basketball Hall of Fame, in Springfield MA and got our professional pics taken.

After our group photo we had to wait for individual head shots to be done … What’s that saying about idle hands?

With so many props around us, it was difficult to behave…

Gasp!

After our individual photos were done, we found our way over to The Colony Club in downtown Springfield, MA where we were treated to champagne, shrimp cocktail, and a gourmet cheese platter, to celebrate our success!

And of course, no evening celebration would be complete without a belly dancing lesson from Emily!

Thank you again, everyone who voted for us!  We appreciate it!

The awards dinner is on October 10, 2013. We’ll be sure to bring our cameras since we’ll be all dolled up.
