Preparing for Pampering

November 17, 2014 Leave a comment

With all-natural ingredients like lemon, Madagascar cinnamon and coffee, enjoy this detoxifying and firming treatment leaving skin firm and bright. Espresso Limon Cellulite Reducing Cocoon available until Nov 30.

If it’s your first spa treatment or not, it’s always a good reminder to prepare your body before receiving a spa treatment. To get the most value out of your service and to help manage your stress during the busy holiday season, Cooper Spa shares pre-massage tips with you!

  1. Use the sauna or steam room prior to treatment, if current health isn’t a restriction. The time that a massage therapist will typically spend warming up your body will be better utilized to work on any particular issues you’d like addressed. The heat also increases blood flow and will aide in the recovery from a deep tissue or fitness massage.
  2. Drink plenty of water, before and after treatment. A hydrated body is a healthy body, particularly for a massage.  You can imagine how much fluid is moved around with the various massage techniques and drinking water is the best way to expel any waste that results from that movement.
  3. Speak up. This is your service and your massage therapist is there to cater to your needs. Don’t be shy if you want less pressure, or more.  And make sure your licensed massage therapist knows about any health matters–it makes  a difference in keeping you comfortable and safe.
  4. Take your time. We certainly want our guests to use our beautifully-renovated locker rooms in Cooper Fitness Center as part of the treatment process. Plan ahead and arrive 20-30 minutes early to take advantage of this unique facility offering.  If you are having 2 or more services or would like information about a guest pass to use the fitness equipment or outdoor track, please ask a teammate (employee) of Cooper Spa.
  5. Go slow after a massage. You won’t want to rush around as your body is in a more relaxed state. Feel free to have a seat with us and don’t feel like you have to leave right away. We enjoy your company.

This holiday season, enjoy seasonal services at Cooper Spa Dallas. For fall, try the Honey Graham Cracker Pedicure or the Espresso Limón Cellulite Reduce Cocoon through Nov. 30. Need a gift for the holiday season? Starting today through December 24, purchase a $300 Cooper Spa gift card and receive a $40 voucher. Look for new seasonal services on Dec. 1!

Expecting the Best at Cooper Spa

In just a few days, my due date will be here and I’m truly Expecting the Best with our second child—a girl! As the Director of Cooper Spa, Dallas, I thought it was the perfect time to experience our Expecting the Best package. I must say that if you are pregnant or know someone who is, this is a real treat. Carrying such a precious gift is truly a miracle, but it sure can tweak some muscles and cause some discomfort.

Happy Easter from the Carrolls!

With this pregnancy, I’ve had some upper back issues so the 50-Minute Pregancy Massage was just what I needed. The massage therapist worked her magic! I felt some relief immediately after the massage. Enough to know that I had waited too long for that healing touch.

Our Pregnancy and Postpartum Massage relieves stress through the use of massage, specialty contoured body pillows, soft music and aromatherapy. Improved circulation and diminished back and hip pain are benefits of this unique therapy for pregnant women. Postpartum massage can help tone and restore a new mother’s body to its prepregnancy condition and alleviate muscle strain and soreness.

Next up, my facial. The Eminence® Organic Customized Facial at Cooper Spa is one of my favorite services, regardless of being pregnant or not. The sensory experience is as enjoyable as the focused touch to my skin—lemon, strawberry, pineapple, hydrating stone crop… amazing! A little secret, I would bathe in SkinCeuticals® products if I could. And since my favorite SkinCeuticals Retinol product isn’t pregnancy-friendly, my skin has been ho-hum since day one of finding out ‘Little Miss’ was on her way. After adding in an eye brow wax, because who doesn’t want well-shaped brows in the delivery room, my skin was glowing! There is nothing like having a sense of circulation back in my face.

Finally after really having a wonderful time, I dipped my exhausted feet into that warm, soothing, cleansing pedicure bath. A little scrub here (and a very light rub there), then one of Cooper Spa’s skilled technicians added a pretty pink polish. These tired girls were suddenly feeling the love they were asking for. I suddenly wished I had been better about taking advantage of these services sooner.

But now that I have, I hope you’ll come try them soon or send your loved ones this way—we can take care of their every need! If you’re pregnant, it is always best to consult your physician prior to having spa services.

And remember Mother’s Day is May 11. Now through May 11, purchase a $250 gift card and receive a full-size gym bag complete with a 3-day Cooper Fitness Center guest pass*. As an added bonus, our Spa clients always enjoy complimentary childcare during any spa treatment.

Purchase a gift card or book an appointment today!

*Promotion available only for in-store purchases. Bag color will vary and while supplies last.

Celebrating 15 Years at Cooper Spa

Beautiful Fit Products

Introduced in 2011,Cooper Spa’s own private label, Beautiful Fit–coming soon online.

What were you doing in August 1998? I was getting ready to start another school year. And Cooper Spa was proudly opening its doors! That means this month we’re celebrating our 15th Anniversary.

I’ve been so fortunate to be a part of this team for a third of those years. Did you know that we have teammates who have been here for all 15? Since the beginning Cooper Spa has been offering spa products and services designed for and dedicated to your total well-being—physical and emotional.

We’ve grown to 28 professional and licensed therapists trained to pamper the body and mind with restorative, therapeutic and rejuvenating treatments. And over the years our product line has evolved to meet the needs of today’s customers.

  • With more customers wanting to add natural products to their beauty routine, we now offer our Beautiful Fit™ line. This 100 percent natural line of body, skin care and aromatherapy products are free of parabens, mineral oils and artificial fragrance. They are  made from natural and renewable raw materials and are 100 percent therapeutically beneficial. They form the basis of our Beautiful Fit Massage, Manicure, Pedicure and Facial. Beautiful Fit products will soon be available online so you can easily experience Beautiful Fit at home for yourself.
  • Our customers’ desire for natural products means we have natural color products too. We recently added the Jane Iredale® makeup line, made with high performance minerals, antioxidants and vitamins.
  • Just like many of you customize your workout routines we all have a need to customize our skin care. After all, no two faces are the same! Whether you need extra hydration, added firmness or a deep cleansing we have a facial for you. The same holds true for our other services. In fact we offer seven massages that can further be customized with aromatherapy enhancements for an even more personal touch.
  • As we all become more crunched for time we want to address that need too. We’ll soon be one of the first spas in Dallas to offer Vita-Gel Manicure, a gel manicure system that delivers incredibly durable chip-free manicures for over an entire week. Plus. It’s power-packed with an infusion of Vitamins A, E and Pro-Vitamin B to nourish nails

In short, we’re here for you to take away some of the stress, help you to relax and feel pampered, and show you how we care.  Throughout our anniversary month we’re offering fun online and in-spa giveaways. We are so grateful for our clients and friends who come to visit on a regular basis.  If that’s not you yet, come and let us serve you!

Cooper Spa Valentine SpecialsCandy hearts, sweet but cheesy cards, and yummy chocolate –  and spa gift certificates!  Are those some of the first things that come to your mind for Valentine’s Day?

This year, I am proud to announce that Cooper Spa Dallas is able to give ‘heart to heart’ for our Valentine’s promotion.  Cooper Spa Dallas will donate 10 percent of the proceeds on gift certificates and certain product purchases to the American Heart Association in honor of American Heart Month. This all made possible because of our clients’ generous hearts!

It makes my team and me feel good to give to such a wonderful cause! My family has a history of heart disease, so I’ll do whatever I can to help others find the tools and resources to improve heart health.

If you haven’t had the chance to meet the wonderful Cooper Spa team, book an appointment or stop by! I may be a little biased, but they are some of the most talented and knowledgeable spa therapists that I know. Combining all of their creativity, we recently launched our Valentines Service Menu. From now until March 15, you can show your body some love with an Alluring Rose and Chocolate Facial, Irresistible Body Treatment with Chocolate and Roses or Tickled Pink Pedicure. It is the perfect thing to put on a gift certificate this year.

But that’s not our only special this season! From Feb. 1-14, we are offering a gift card promotion. Purchase a $250 gift certificate and receive a $25 voucher to use on regular-priced services or Beautiful Fit product purchases. Ten percent of these proceeds will go to the American Heart Association as well.

‘Tis the season to SHOP!

I’m not sure about you, but I have been doing plenty of online shopping this year.  Between wonderfully busy days at work, fun times at home with my kiddo and all of the tedious tasks like laundry, my watch hits 10:00 p.m. way too fast!

I have run across a few family members on my list that should be on a published list of “World’s Hardest to Shop For.”  For those loved ones, I’ve stocked up on gift cards.  Who doesn’t love to be gifted with money to spend somewhere special?  Especially from Cooper Spa.

Thank goodness I can make a quick stop into the Spa and purchase the gift of relaxation and rejuvenation!  Give us a call, go online or swing by so that we can beautifully package your presents for you!  And the best news yet – this year we are giving you an extra voucher for a service or a Beautiful Fit product so that you can spoil yourself, too! We make it easy for you, so you don’t have to think about it twice.

What are you waiting for? Buy your gift card online or call Cooper Spa at 972.392.7729.

Tis the Season for Spa Specials

November 9, 2012 Leave a comment

Red and green. White lights and silver bells. The holidays! They are just around the corner, can you believe it? I absolutely cannot.  What makes it even harder are the 80 degree days we’re having in Dallas… bring on the snow!!

I don’t know about you, but to me the holidays bring a great amount of joy and stress.  The lists have been started, but they never seem to stop.  Who to shop for (even that crazy uncle), where to go (that doesn’t have lines) and what to buy (that won’t end up returned).  Once everything has been delivered and exchanged, I always can give a huge sigh of relief.  Then comes the immense joy having close friends and family enjoying time together, eating yummy food and having a relaxing time.  That’s the best.

Luckily, we are offering some fabulous seasonal services at Cooper Spa Dallas for your loved ones. Until January 15, the trained hands of our therapists will revitalize your senses and refresh your skin.

When it comes to body scrubs, our lead therapist Erika Bazan recommends that you have one done at the change of every season. It will slough away dead skin allowing your fresh self to reveal a brighter, more energetic look all over.  This season, we selected a skin-tingling Cinnamon-Vanilla scrub that will have you baking cookies the minute you are home!

For a radiant face at your holiday parties, our Winter Wonderland Facial is a must! This facial is like a walk through the berry garden. The combination of products used is directed towards the type of skin you have, but it is sure to give you that glowing skin.  Eminence makes their products so amazingly rich, healthy and delicious.

And because pedicures are also a necessity, even if you are wearing boots or a pair of cute new slipper shoes, the Sugar-Soaked Apple Cider Pedicure will have your head spinning. Our team loves creating these services our wonderful, new Farm House Fresh collection. Once you’ve had the apple cider pedicure, you’ll wish we carried it year-round.

Click here to learn more about Cooper Spa seasonal specials or call 972.392.7729 to book a service with one of our Spa Coordinators. Don’t miss out on these specials – January will be here before you know it!

A Day at the Spa for Dad

June 11, 2012 3 comments

Father’s Day is just around the corner. I find myself reminding my friends and family of this date since it really isn’t as ‘Hallmark hyped’ as Mother’s Day. So here it is – June 17 – don’t let it be forgotten.

Some dads have come to expect the sweet or humorous card, along with maybe a new tie or handy-man tool, dinner out or dinner in. If you’re guilty of the above, I’m here to help you think differently.

One quarter of our patrons at Cooper Spa Dallas are men. Does that surprise you? That number made me realize that men also enjoy a relaxing trip to the spa in order to revitalize them for everything they do. I’m guilty of overlooking the spa as a perfect getaway for men – it’s not just the golf course they love.

So get dad that facial, pedicure or massage that he wouldn’t get for himself. You can do it in a snap by calling Cooper Spa Dallas at 972.392.7729 or clicking here to buy a gift card online (you can print it yourself or email it to him). If you happen to come in our spa, we have beautiful gift boxes so you don’t have to worry about wrapping it yourself.

If you are one of our loyal Cooper Fitness Center Dallas members, Cooper Spa Dallas will be providing complimentary mini-facials for dad on June 16, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. No advance reservations are available, so make sure he swings by to sign up that morning!

We also carry some great products in our boutique that are “Just For Him.” While you’re here, swing by The Coop. You might find a few small gifts there, too.

Below are a few of my favorite choices.

Jack Black
My husband loves their beard lube, and secretly (or not so much anymore) so do I.

 I actually bought myself one, but my husband quickly fell in love with this tool so now we swap out the interchangeable heads to share.


He always buys me one. Maybe it’s a sign that he wants one, too?
