Start the New Year off Right!

You know the saying, Girlfriend, "A New Year, A New You," but the New Year doesn't have to be about changing who you are.  The New Year can be about bettering yourself & just taking care of YOU!  It is so important to take care of yourself so that you can be a better person for the other people in your life.  How can you take care of everyone else if you don't take some time for yourself?

In the New Year, we are vowing to take better care of ourselves & stay on track with our relaxation regiment!  Our Groove Club is a great way to stay on track with what your body needs; it allows you to come in once (or more!) a month for spa services.  With our monthly Groove Club membership, you can treat yourself to discounted mass"ahh"ges, facials & mani/pedis!  You can also discount all other services by 10%!

Spa services are a great way to take care of yourself & your body, and to give you some time to relax & rejuvenate.  Girlfriend, you will need all the relaxation you can get at the start of this busy year!  Who knows what the New Year will bring?

Massage the Pain Away, Girlfriend!

Girlfriends, did you know that fibromyalgia is a chronic and painful condition that can have an impact on every aspect of your life?  You may not even realize that you currently suffer from fibromyalgia.  Sufferers usually ache all over and have bouts of sleeplessness.  They may experience severe fatigue that will increase throughout the day.  Some sufferers also express that they feel anxious and depressed about feeling the way they feel.

Girlfriend, if you're affected with this condition, pain and fatigue probably top your list of complaints and we understand why!  These factors alone can make you feel anxious and depressed thereby heightening your sensitivity to pain.  Combine that with the other symptoms you may be experiencing such as headaches, lack of focus and insomnia and its no surprise that your situation seems unbearable!  We want to help you help yourself!  Lightening your load ANYWHERE will help to fill up physical and emotional resources that you need to heal.  Mass"ahh"ge is an important tool for this.

Pain Relief -- A lack of sleep, stress and long periods of sitting or standing can aggravate a vicious pain cycle.  Since mass"ahh"ge stimulates the release of endorphins, your body's natural pain killers, you can experience a welcome & well-deserved break from pain.  Mass"ahh"ge also increases circulation, which cleanses tissues of fluid build up and by-products of inflammation as increased oxygen and nutrients flow to contracted muscles which can in turn allow you to relax, ease your headache and reduce the severity of flare ups.

Stress Relief -- Mass"ahh"ge calms the nervous system, relaxing muscle tension and easing anxiety.  Stress levels go down, freeing energy for functions such as digestion (vital nutrients) and repair of damaged tissue.  Knowing that you can alleviate symptoms can give you some control over your situation, which in turn, reduces stress.

Better Sleep -- Many people have reported a deeper and more sensitive sleep after a mass"ahh"ge session.  Improving sleep is vital for you since poor sleep contributes to fatigue and muscle tenderness.  When you are feeling more relaxed, your pain sensitivity eases, leaving you with increased energy.

Emotional Support -- Your mass"ahh"ge therapist understands that you may be feeling alone.  He or she should listen to you and take your symptoms seriously.  Massage offers the most basic of emotional support -- a healing, caring touch.

Mass"ahh"ge should be a break from pain and everyday anxiety.  You should be aware that any treatment--even mass"ahh"ge--is going to greatly improve your quality of life!  You deserve a break sometimes, Girlfriend!

Your mass"ahh"ge therapist can cater to your needs!  Building a relationship with your mass"ahh"ge therapist will allow them to get to know YOU & your body!  Go!Spa mass"ahh"ge Pro Robin Arnold says that her favorite type of mass"ahh"ge is one that is customized the the customers needs!  So speak up, Girlfriend, and let your massage therapist know what they can do to help YOU!

It's a New Year Girlfriend, so you have to vow to take care of yourself & your body!  You can give yourself a much needed & deserved break with a relaxing massage.  We know you're on the Go -- Go!Spa has 20 minute, 40 minute or hour long mass"ahh"ges!  Click here to book an appointment with one of our massage Pros!

OPI Obsessed: OPI Axxium Mani

Hey Go!Spa Girlfriends,
Have you heard of the OPI Axxium Mani?

If you haven’t noticed, we are obsessed with anything & everything OPI.  From old favorites like Dutch Tulip and I’m Not Really a Waitress to the new Burlesque Collection, OPI always gives us new and exciting colors.   And right now, we are LOVING the OPI Axxium Mani for girls that want no chip nails.  If you haven’t heard of it, Axxium is a gel laquer that guarantees no chip for at least 14 days, but many Axxium lovers say their mani's can last up to 3 weeks!  Typical polishes last about 5 days so Axxium gives you the freedom to be pretty rough on them with the confidence that they will last!  Having trouble growing your nails?  Axxium also helps your nails grow due to the protective coat.  It comes in a variety of OPI shades, including some of our favorites like BubblebathBogata Blackberry, and Lincoln Park After Dark. Just a tip: lighter shades like Bubblebath appear to last even longer.
The OPI Axxium Mani is beloved by new mothers who are notorious for not being able to keep nail polish on due to excessive hand washing and wet wipe usage.  So just try and get your Axxium polish off with a wet wipe Girlfriend, its not gonna happen! And teachers and working professionals that are on key boards all day long swear by the long lasting effects of OPI Axxium.  So give us a call and see if Axxium is right for you!

OPI Obsessed

The transition from Summer to Fall is one of our favorites because of the changes outside and the changes we get to make to our wardrobe.  Don't ever forget that your nails are an accessory, too!  The polish colors for Fall are to-die-for so we just wanted to help you prepare your nails for Fall! OPI's Holiday/Winter line is inspired by the film starring Cher and Christna Aguilera, the Burlesque Collection. These polishes are SO much fun for the Holidays.  'Extra-va-vaganza' to spice up a little black dress, 'Teas-y Does It' for the office!  These polishes are the perfect accessory for all of your Holiday events.

And don't forget about the OPI Swiss Collection ($8.50 each @ Go!Spa) for some fabulous Fall nail colors.  We're still obsessed!  Joey loves 'Ski Teal You Drop' and Katie is wearing 'Glitzerland'!  Looking for something super dark?  We love 'William Tell' - so fun!

Pick a color from the Burlesque or Swiss Collections for your next mani/pedi!

The Power of Mass"ahh"ge!

Fall is the perfect time to make a commitment to start taking care of YOU.  One of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy is to get regular massages.  Massages  are no longer considered just a luxury or special occasion gift.  Massages are really a necessity.  Many people today use their Health Savings Accounts to pay for  massages as a medical necessity.  People who get regular massages do so because they can attest to the following benefits. 
  • relaxation of mind & body
  • decreased perception of stress in your body
  • enhancement of overall health
  • reduces pain, stiffness and soreness
  • improves circulation, flexibility and mobility.  
  • lowers blood pressure
And if that's not enough for you, regular massages can also help to improve sleep and management of illnesses such as diabetes, arthritis and depression.  Massage is also very important in the recovery from accidents or injuries, allowing your body to refresh and strengthen itself.

Robin Arnold, one of Go!Spa's Mass"ahh"ge Pro's loves to customize massages based on the needs of her customers.  "Being able to customize allows me to give the customer exactly what they need to feel refreshed and renewed.  I like to work on YOUR problem spots, customizing the massage to fit YOUR needs based on the time allowed.  A good massage therapist should be able to do this for you." 

If you have never had a massage, we seriously encourage you to come experience our Spoiled Rotten Massage.  Know a massage lover?  The Holidays are almost here -- a Groove Club membership is a perfect & affordable gift for the person that can never get enough massages.  Just $45 a month for a great Mass"ahh"age, or upgrade to a Go!Spa Spoiled Rotten Mass"ahh"ge for just $15 extra.

Did you know we have Couples Mass"ahh"ges, too?  You and your significant other can relax in one of our cabanas while being Spoiled Rotten together!  "Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!!" - Mae West

Love the Skin You're In

Girlfriends, don’t we all know that the blazing summer sun can be hard on our skin? And even in September & October we need to be careful! After 3 months of heat, the dramatic temperature change from Summer to Fall can dry out your skin not only on the outside, but the inside as well. It’s never too late, but the earlier you start really taking care of your skin, the better!  As I always say…It’s the only skin you will ever have so take care of it! So if you think those expensive products are all you need, think again!  Here are three easy things you need to commit to before you buy that expensive wrinkle cream:
  • Stay hydrated – Something that people don’t necessarily realize is the importance of drinking water for your SKIN. Not only does it improve your metabolism, water keeps your skin hydrated. Dehydrated skin not only can begin to look older, wrinkled and less vibrant, but most importantly it causes a loss of elasticity. If you are thirsty, then you are dehydrated! I find that when I’m chronically thirsty, my skin looks thirsty, too. To fix this, not only do I try to drink more water, but I have also found a product that is a "drink for my skin" as well, called Hydrating B5 Gel by SkinCeuticals. It's light, a little bit goes a long way, and my skin feels hydrated immediately!
  • Exfoliate – While chemical peels are definitely your best option for the smoothest, most flawless looking skin, there are ways to effectively exfoliate at home as well. While not as aggressive, it’s the next best thing. I’ve found that my favorite facial exfoliators are the Spa Cell and the little rubber ovals you can get on the inexpensive cleansers in the mass market. While I don’t necessarily love the mass market cleanser, I absolute adore the little rubber exfoliator! I love these two items because used with my favorite cleanser, they allow my skin to feel and look much smoother.
  • Sunscreen – It’s true! Don’t leave home without it. Did you know up to 90% of visible changes commonly attributed to aging are caused by sun exposure? Look for a light, fluid SPF with a transparent finish, high UVA, and paraben-free. Just because you are wearing sunscreen to protect your skin doesn’t mean you have to feel like you’re wearing that heavy, white sunscreen that we are so used too! 
Go!Spa Girl hopes these tips will help to refresh and rejuvenate your skin.  If you need another opinion or more info, call and book with one of our Skin Pros today!
