I want to create a signature treatment for my spa. Where do I start?

New Signature Treatment-961
 
When it comes to creating a new treatment there is much to consider – from the products you’ll be using and your in-house retail strategy to administration by staff and more. Before you start designing your ritual, first think about why it needs to be created.

New treatments are often created to signal seasonal change or celebrate an important date, such as the spa’s birthday. However, a gap in the market can also be a catalyst to introducing something new into your premises. For example, I noticed there wasn’t much out there to allow young girls to enjoy a spa day, so at The Headland we introduced the Little Miss Headland treatments.

Once comfortable with the treatment and happy with the results it will bring, share this information with your senior therapist who can help to train the rest of the team. It’s also important to create a guide for the front-of-house staff so they are able to communicate the treatment effectively to clients.

Once all these parts of the process are in place, you can start to promote the treatment using external media, as well as sharing the news with your regular guests.
