In addition, four sessions are available in Spanish.
Thanks to Healthy Hairdresser guru Mary Beth Janssen for letting us know about these. A longtime proponent of meditation, Janssen says that salon professionals can benefit greatly from meditating.
“Meditation is about connecting to your source,” she explains. “Heart-centered, spiritual, holistic salon owners are the epitome of this and can instill it into their staff. At the salon, you’re living 100 percent, vividly in the moment. If you’re stressed out and living on the edge, you must connect with yourself before you can change other people. The stress-buster is a toolbox of nutrition, meditation and physical activity, and the power of intention is where it begins.”
