Hi Everyone, 

I came home this evening after a very long day in my treatment room and it just struct me how much I miss being on the receiving end of a treatment.  I thought about my days at Esty school and how wonderful it was to receive bi-weekly treatments.  I could surely use one right now.  Oh sure, I can give myself a treatment, but it's not the same feeling.   I could go to a salon/spa to get a facial or any other treatment but I find it a bit hard to swallow some of the prices that's out there.  Being in the business myself and knowing what materials, labor and overhead costs are it's hard to justify the "break the bank" prices of spas/salons in my area.  The services that look intriguing to me are just that "break the bank" style.

I wish there was such a thing as an Esty Club where licensed Estys can experience the latest in services, at a lower rate, and where we can feel secure in the fact that we will receive value and an excellent experience. 

Anyone else feel like this?.....or maybe I've just had a long day.

What a bout the "bartering"? Don't anyone believes in this anymore? Specially when we are refering to colleages, and that we really know the cost per service on "materials" and it's a surely friend to be and also an Esti, just like you and me ... The sharing it's so much needed now a days ... It brings people together (closer) ... It makes us understand each other better ... Sharing ...

I totally empathize.. I wish I could get a massage whenever I wanted!! But for the facial part.. how would you like to be able to give yourself and anti-aging facial 2-3 times a week ..AND make money doing it??? It's called a Galvanic Spa Facial..  a portable,  hand held device nor bigger than an electric razor!

  It delivers key ingredients into the skin.. including an anti-aging enzyme called- ageloc!

I completely agree with you. I feel as if there were such a thing as an 'Esty Club', we would always be learningas well as taking care of ourselves, (treating ourselves). Obviously, there are CEU's and classes to always attend, but to simply enjoy a treatment at a low cost, and experience different modalities without an instructor in the room, would be 'therapeutic'. :)

Now I wished I lived in Cali.  That's a very nice thing for you to offer Estys.  Something to think about.....

I hear ya Virginia!! I actually give local Esty's a professional discount and they only pay $50 for a treatment with me (any treatment they want). It's fun to work on other Estys and getting to know them.
