2016 Facelift and Menu Of Services Revamp

Its been over five years since we moved into our new Colby facility. There has been a lot of growth and development during that time and it has been quite a while since we have made any large changes to the way we do things. However, its time to comb through our offerings and streamline things so that we can continue offering the best service we can. We are sprucing up the place a bit with some new decorations to keep our facility looking great. And, most importantly, we have some fairly significant sprucing ups planned for our Menu Of Service offerings across the whole facility.

Why change things? Well first of all, the space has seen tons of use. Everyone likes the renewed energy of a remodeled and it’s time to reinvigorate our facility. Now that the salon remodel is done, it is brighter than ever before, which helps our stylists see more acurate colors and nuances in the cuts that they give.  It gives a ‘new car’ feel to the whole place, and that renewal is good for all of us. But, the biggest reason for the planned changes is that we have learned from our experience. We have learned what was too complex, what wasn’t well received, and what worked really well. Our menu of services remodel will streamline and focus what worked for everyone to have a better experience.

So, in a nutshell, expect big changes that focus on:

  1. Enhancing the quality of your experience.
  2. Enhancing the clarity of our communication with you.
  3. Improving the way we apply our core philosophies of wellness throughout our interaction with you.

The goal is nothing less than providing you with better results! After all, that is our mission, to get you back into a state of connection with your heart where you can live confidently, courageously, compassionately, and joyfully. We mean it, and that is why we are mustering the effort to cleanse and renew our space; for greater quality of service to our community.

Here are the major adjustments we are making and the rough timeline:

Feb 1st – Launched the new Yoga and Fitness Class policies and payment options to accomodate more flexibility for students. Now there are no more restrictions to starting and taking classes any time you are ready. Check out the full list of policy and price changes already implemented here. These changes should remove many of the barriers to starting and taking class whenever you are inspired to do so!

Feb 12th –  The launch of a new price level, Experienced Level, and the Promotion of Crystal Chenier as our first Experienced Level Provider. This new level lies in between Advanced and Senior. This fine tuning of our level system will keep promotions consistent allowing our staff to receive regular raises and allowing Back To Bliss to keep the best talent in the area. We made the choice to add a level and increase our complexity here because we place such strong requirements on our providers to get their promotion to Senior Level. These requirements all involve our practitioners being able to mentor, educate, and exude the wisdom that only can come from 7-10 years of practice in our craft. Thus, simply accelerating the pace of level advancement doesn’t really work for us, and we needed to add one final level to fine tune and complete our level system.

This change affects three other providers in our facility. Jessica Hopperdietzel will be moved to Experienced Level, her prices remain unchanged. Carrie Schug and Monica Groth are both Senior Level Providers and the addition of a new lower level means that the prices of the senior level have risen. The price increase on Senior Level Services, affecting Carrie and Monica, goes into affect on March 1st.

Late Feb. – Your Online Booking Experience is being simplified. Updates to our software now allow us to remove the complexity of listing every level for every service as an option for you to choose. Now all services will automatically have the appropriate price for the level of provider you choose applied automatically. We are also busy preparing materials that explain how to use our online booking service.

Early March – Menu Of Services Adjustments Will Begin – We will begin changing service names, adding additional services and restructuring the Menu Of Services. This process should be gentle and will be processed throughout the month, however there will certainly be a learning curve while we all get used to new names and options. Several services will be discontinued at this time.

Adjusting the prices of our spa services so that they are less complicated. We already have many prices because of our price levels. Now all of our spa services will follow either a basic pricing or a specialty pricing track. Specialty services will be those services that individual therapists have specialized training in beyond that expected by Back To Bliss and beyond what is typically offered in schools. This means that some services will have their price dropped and some raised to conform to one of the two pricing tracks.

The Restructuring of our Signature Elemental Massage will allow us to have consistency in our “signature” services across all departments. Basically we have created a Basic Massage to complement our Signature Massage. The signature massage will be the same as we have always provided, but will be placed onto our speciality pricing track (which is an increase) while our basic massage will be available without any ayurvedic aromatherapy oils at the lower pricing track.

Renaming and changing our Salon services so that we can more clearly communicate. It is a struggle to appropriately communicate our needs in terms of time required, amount of color needed, and other nuance in just a few short service offerings. We keep working on making the process clear so that as many questions about price and length of service time are answered as early as possible. The addition of online booking makes the need for clarity in our service descriptions and names even greater. The salon services are being extensively adjusted to improve the quality of communication so that we get you booked for the appropriate length of time.

Removal of many programs and services from the menu. We pride ourselves on accomodating your preferences, however it is just as important to be clear and simple. We have tried many things over the years to help make wellness available. Many services such as our body ease series have been removed from our menu completely due to lack of customer interest. Programs such as our Corporate Wellness Programs, Senior Citizen Tuesday Discount Day, and others have been removed for the same reason. Other discounts and services have been tweaked or adjusted to make them work better such as our pregnancy massage discount, which is having its discount amount moved over to a package option so it can conform to our new policy of offering only two pricing tracks.

Late March – Remodeling the front desk area. Moving the reception desk will increase the ease and effecieny of flow. As we have grown, we are witnessing the change in noise levels and the way that our front desk traffic flows. This simple adjustment should make a noticable difference in the quality of your experience.

April 1st – Launch of new Cash Discount Program aimed at keeping business local and helping our community stay strong. Basically, our business has seen a dramatic increase in credit card payments over the last couple years. This cost, along with other several other general cost of doing business increases, has become significant enough that we are implementing a gentle price increase across the entire facility. However, we are launching our cash discount program, where all cash transactions will receive a 1% discount at the register to coincide with the price increase.

April – Adjustments and updates to all of our intake forms. We want to make sure we are serving your needs. As both a spa, salon, and a therapy center, the intake process can sometimes ask too many questions or too few. Basically we want to streamline this entire process so that we give you better service. Two of the main adjustments will be the addition of a more complete health history intake for our therapy focused clients and a system that will help you choose to provide more frequent feedback. We want to make sure you can adjust your preferences based on changes to your mood, health, or provider. Opening a formal way to communicate is important to us so that you can always continue to get the best service.

These adjustments are substantial, but we know that by June, your experience (and results) at Back To bliss will be much better. Thanks for working with us as we make these changes. We know they will pave the way so that we can continue to serve you and our community now and long into the future.

Be Well,

Josiah Groth ~owner

Happy Holidays!

  • Christmas Eve: Reception is open until 3pm
  • Christmas Day: Closed all locations
  • New Years Eve: 10-7pm
  • New Years Day: Closed all locations

Healthy Holidays December Class Schedule

Each December we put together a special class schedule designed to help us maintain our balance amidst the travel, emotion, and food. This year we have a special treat with the addition of a new 200 Hr. Certified Yoga Teacher, Melissa Lange, as well as Wellness Programs being taught by our Certified Acupuncturist, Jocelyn Mitchel.  Click here to read their bio’s.

In a Nutshell

  • Our Healthy Holiday Class Special runs from December 7th to New Years Eve.
  • All Group Classes, Programs, and Workshops that are offered at both locations are included in one special price.
  • Pre-registration will guarantee your spot in class, but all classes are drop-in ready. So, come to as many classes as you can at your convenience.
  • Bring friends when they are in town. All classes can also be purchased for our regular drop in rates.
  • Class times are varied; in part to allow for options on a hectic month, but also to get feedback for Melissa to set up our long term yoga schedule.
  • This is a great sampler. Test some new yoga styles, meet and learn from Jocelyn, enjoy some fun and stay connected to health this holiday month.
  • Your Healthy Holidays Unlimited Class Pass is non-transferable and will expire on Jan. 1st regardless of attendance.

All For One Low Price

Unlimited December Class and Program Pass – $39 includes

  • 25 yoga Classes
  • 8 Zumba Classes
  • 4 Wellness Discussions with our Acupuncturist
  • 1 Workshop on how to consciously create traditions and spaces filled with your intention.

Registration is Easy:

As part of our new system we will be urging everyone to register and purchase classes online. You can still easily pay and register at the front desk, but our online system gives you greater control over your account and makes it easy to register or cancel yourself from a class. With just a little bit of time you can have a Booker App on your phone (Apps for both Android and Apple are available) and have links to your account on your computer.  From there you can see our schedule and the passes you have purchased very easily.

Continued Evolution Of Classes

We have been working hard to implement some big changes to the way that we schedule and organize our classes. Most of those changes are made possible by our booking system, but we have revamped everything so that beginning in February we will have greater flexibility in the way we schedule, the ways you can purchase passes, and where and when you can sign up for classes.

This month we are unveiling two of these changes to our classes. First, there is a new way to purchase classes called the Unlimited Pass. Beginning this February we will have options for our regular class participants to purchase 7 Day and 30 Day Unlimited Passes. These Unlimited Passes can be purchased at any time and will begin and end from the date of the first use. This option will make it affordable for you to really commit to a fitness program and makes since for anyone taking more than three classes a week. Our Healthy Holidays special will be sold as our very first Unlimited Pass.

The second change we are implementing is in the length of our yoga classes. We will be changing all yoga class times to 75 minutes. This will part of a general movement to separate the 60 min. fitness classes and the yoga classes in structure. In the past, we merged the times of regular fitness classes and our yoga classes to match the capacity of our booking system. Now that we have both a more capable booking system and an additional certified yoga teacher, we will get back to offering the deeper components of relaxation, breath work and meditation that set yoga apart.

Acupuncture Now Available

Acupuncture Services Begin This October

We are pleased to announce that Acupuncture services will begin at Back To Bliss’ Colby location this October. It has been a goal of Back To Bliss’ to bring acupuncture to our area for some time now so that we can have local access to this amazingly beneficial therapy. Our mission is to make real wellness locally accessible and affordable to maintain, and we feel that adding acupuncture to our service menu does both of these things for our rural area. We are delighted to have connected with a skilled acupuncturist who shares our philosophies on customer service and quality care. Our acupuncturist, Jocelyn, will be available from Tuesday – Friday, 10 am – 7 pm.

Check our acupuncture service page for details on pricing. We offer package discounts when purchasing six acupuncture treatments and you can use sale gift certificates for her services as normal.

A Message From Jocelyn

Hello, I’m Jocelyn and it is my passion to support you in living the fullest life possible. It is my pleasure to offer services that help you care for your body and mind so you can be the best version of yourself!

I’ve been interested in holistic healthcare since I was about twelve years old and I had my first experience with chiropractic—which is what I was intent on studying until I found out about acupuncture.  My first experience with acupuncture helped me find relief from aches and pains related to a motor vehicle accident.  When I found out that there was a local school, Midwest College of Oriental Medicine (MCOM), I just had to learn more about acupuncture and all the modalities of Oriental Medicine.  After jm headshotcompleting my bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, I went on to complete a second bachelor’s degree in nutrition and a master’s degree in Oriental Medicine from MCOM.

My focus is on you, my patient.  It is my goal to educate, guide, and facilitate treatment to relieve your symptoms, help you to regain your vitality, and prevent sickness and disease before it begins. I can best be described as a general practitioner or family practitioner.  While many find joy in specialization, I love the challenge of diagnosing and treating a wide variety of health concerns.  I love it when I see families pursuing a healthy lifestyle together.  There is strength in unity and just like healthy individuals bring that influence to their families, healthy families have the power to change a whole community.

My treatment style is eclectic because my desire is to find the most effective treatment plan for each person; therefore I will draw from as many tools as I have in my toolbox to reach the goal defined in our treatment plan.  I offer nutritional recommendations, Chinese herbal supplements, vitamin and mineral supplements, acupuncture, and manual therapies.  I welcome you to the healing path and look forward to meeting you soon!

What Does An Acupuncture Therapy Plan Look Like?

Depending on your goals, the depth of the issues you want to resolve, and the intensity of your wellness plan you will find that no two therapy plans are identical.  However, when beginning your work with our acupuncturist, everyone will need to schedule a 120 minute initial visit and a 75 minute follow up visit. In these two first sessions the two of you will put together a detailed evaluation, history and plan with plenty of one-on-one time for questions, education, and treatment. Depending on your needs, there may lots of homework in terms of lifestyle practices and/or several vitamins and herbs to familiarize yourself with taking.

After your initial visits, clients can expect a treatment plan that is more frequent at the beginning. As your body ‘holds the effects’ of the treatments for longer and longer timeframes, the treatments will be spaced further and further apart. In this way your acupuncture plan works with your own healing force to first impact a therapeutic change and then gradually allow your body to maintain a healthy condition on its own. Jocelyn will commonly recommend coming for acupuncture treatments twice a week for 3-5 weeks to gain a healing momentum. That frequency is stepped-down as fast as you are able to remain symptom free without treatment. Once your goals are met, she then recommends staying on a seasonal maintenance plan to maintain a good welleness relationship and keep ahead of any issues before they become more deeply problematic. This maintenance plan is generally three or four visits a year.

How To Make An Appointment

Acupuncture with Jocelyn fits right into Back To Bliss’ regular service offerings. Simply call the front desk, book online, or stop in to set up your initial visit and get started today. All subsequent appointments will be set up based on the plan created on your initial visit.

Class Policy Updates

We are in the process of enhancing our classes and adjusting the way we schedule and administer them. We have been changing the way we work classes often because we just haven’t found the right mix of software, options, and administrative policy. We apologize for all of the adjustments over the last couple of years, but we think we have finally found the right way to make it all fit together. We have finally settled into a new set of policies that give you all the flexibility you want. Our software can handle all the complexities that our options require, and we have our policies and pricing aligned to support what we want to do.

For our October classes you will notice only a single change to our offerings.  We will now be moving class series to 8 week sessions. This doesn’t mean that you have to sign up for all 8 classes, however.  We will still be offering all classes at 4 week series for $25 and 8 week series for $49. You can sign up for all of our yoga series at any time.

We will be continuing to add options to our class policies through the Vata Balancing Trimester (Oct.-Jan.)  We will have all of our new policies rolling for a fully flushed out, robust and enhanced yoga and fitness class experience for our Kapha Balancing Trimester which begins in February.

In the meantime, we are actively looking for teachers of all fitness and yoga persuasions to get on board with classes at our McMillan and Colby locations for the fall and winter.

Frequently Asked Question:

Several people have called in telling us they can’t find a class on our booking system.  One of the most common mistakes people are making is that they need to know that the classes they are looking for are filtered by location. After you log into your online account on booker you will be able to see a location selector drop down menu that is located in the upper right hand of the screen. Currently we only have classes available at our Colby location and at our McMillan locations. For those looking for classes in or around Marshfield and Stratford, you will find options at the McMillan location.

Be Well,

Josiah

Product Of The Month – Epsom Salt

Epsom Salts

These amazing salts are a great health product that works through the skin to support and balance many of our bodily systems. Even though we work with them and recommend them all the time for our massage clients, when we pull out the list of benefits we are still amazed by their potency and the sheer range of benefits they bring. When you combine their effectiveness with the delivery method – a long relaxing soak in a deliciously hot bath, how could you not want to indulge? As our Product Of The Month for October, we will be offering a 10% discount for any epsom salt purchase. This offer is good while supplies last.

epsom-salt

Benefits Of Epsom Salts

  • Epsom salts are a great way to deepen the effects of your massage
  • They help to balance over 600 enzymes in the body
  • They soothe the skin and fascial tissues for both beauty and health
  • They help the body purge lactic acid and other waste products stagnating in the tissues
  • They help cut down the time it takes to heal, getting you back out into the action faster
  • They help to sooth and balance the digestive system
  • They aid in the formation of proteins for joints and brain tissue.
  • And they help to reduce muscle tenderness after workouts.

Supporting Your Massage With Epsom Salt Baths

During injury, which includes micro strain and tears during exercise, our body will produce lactic acid along with many other hormones, byproducts, and supporting agents. While lactic acid is a natural byproduct of our bodies natural healing system, it has several drawbacks when not metabolized and removed from the muscles soon after. One of the larger negative reactions that lactic acid produces is the creation of adhesions. These sticky muscle and connective tissue knots, need to be softened and removed for health.  If they are not, then over time, the body will stiffen and have a greater potential for pain as the restrictions and adhesions continue to pile up.  Massage is very good at creating fluid flow to purge the waste products like lactic acid from the muscle tissues. The targeted pressure and kneading action of a massage is superior for removing all muscle tension, including any adhesions lactic acid build up may have caused.  Along with regular stretching, gentle movement exercises, and an active lifestyle, massage is an essential and powerful tool to keeping pain and stiffness away. However, Epsom Salt Baths following a massage can increase the amount of fluid flow to your muscles and ease any soreness caused by the massage itself. Adding a bath ritual to your home routine after a massage enhances the experience in several helpful ways.

How To Use Epsom Salt

At Back to bliss we offer a pre-mixed package of Epsom Salt.  We have mixed our quality mineral salts with baking soda and some have received our Signature Scent – Vata Season Essential Oil Blend.  This helps to more quickly pull lactic acid  from the tissues.  The body is able to purge it thought the skin instead of metabolizing it through the liver, which is a much slower process. Typically Epsom Salts are used as a bath additive, but they can also be used in a foot soak. A recommended amount is 1 cup of Epsom Salt per 100 pounds of body weight.  You can add the salts into the bath as you are filling it so they are well mixed in solution, but you can add them at any time without reducing their effectiveness.

We have prepared 2 cup and 4 cup bags of Epsom Salts; available in our Eco Boutique. During the month of October we will be offering a 10% discount for any epsom salt purchase.

Seasonal Balancing With Our Signature Scents

Our Signature Scents are one of our newest ways to keep things fresh and increase the health impact of our services and products. Our trimester based schedule flows with the movement of the seasons and our class offerings and signature scents will be tailor made to offer the support and balance needed by each season’s stresses.

Beginning this October we enter our Vata Balancing Trimester. It focuses on establishing routine, navigating the energetic flow as we lose the heat of summer and flow into the cold of fall, and calming the agitations brought on by the activity packed summer. Look for more blog posts about both our Trimester Schedule and the philosophies of health that it follows as well as about the powerful benefits that our Vata Season 2015 Signature Scent brings.

What’s In Our Signature Scent?

This season’s Signature Scent is a mixture of Orange, Ginger, Cypress, and Ylang Ylang essential oils. Our Signature Scent will be mixed into our Epsom Salts as well as added to our choice of massage oils when you receive a Signature Elemental Massage at Back To Bliss. Emily is busily adding more products to our list of offerings that will only be available until supplies run out this Vata Trimester.

The mixture of essential oils in our Signature Scent blend create a delicious spicy citrus tone with floral hints that will satisfy as the temperatures continue to drop outside. As we lose the heat of summer, the warmth of the ginger and the hints of citrus and floral ylang-ylang will gently calm our nerves with memories of summer without intensity and agitation. Overall, the scent will help to calm the nervous system and soothe the mind.

Kinesio Tape Training

On Wednesday July 29th, 2015, Carrie, Crystal, and Emily will be going to a training on Kinesio Taping.

Kinesio Taping is the application of special tape that will help to heal injuries by increasing circulation and lymphatic flow as well as support the muscle while the injury is acute. If you commonly sprain or strain muscles, this will help cut down recovery time and help you get back to your workout/ training quickly. The benefits to athletes are tremendous and include faster healing, and the added benefit of supporting injuries – sometimes providing enough support so that you can continue to train while healing. Another great benefit of Kinesio Taping is that it is something that you can do at home to help reduce the costs of therapy.  By buying your own tape and having our therapists show you how to apply it at home you can take your health into your own hands.

Combining Kenesio Taping with massage will increase the therapeutic effectiveness of our services.  We will be running a post training special during august to help our therapists practice, so look for it this August.

Student Massages Are Back!
