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!

Massage
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.

Facial
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.

Pedicure
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!

Our Favorite Gifts for Under the Tree

December 12, 2012 Leave a comment

This holiday season give the gift of health to your family and friends. Whether they’re fitness junkies or just beginning an exercise routine, we’ve got the top gifts straight from our Cooper experts that you can stash under the tree or hide in their stockings.

Salad Dressing Cruet
“My stocking stuffer for all this year is a salad dressing cruet that you fill with your own recipe and it only distributes two  Tablespoons at a time! Try ”
Meridan Zerner, MS, RD, CSSD, LD, Registered Dietitian at Cooper Clinic
.
A Heart Rate Monitor
“I like Polar because it’s simple! They have basic variations that just show your heart rate, and then fancier models that store additional personal information, like age and height, and provide calorie consumption. Garmin also makes a very nice and more expensive watch/heart rate monitor that tracks distance, pacing and more. If you’re buying for a runner, this is a great gift.”
Mary Edwards, MS, Director of Personal Training at Cooper Fitness Center

My Zeo

“This is a sleep manager that connects to your iPhone and analyzes your sleep patterns, helping you to optimize your sleep.  Most people could use higher quality sleep!”
Riva Rahl, MD, Preventive Medicine Physician at Cooper Clinic

A Resting Metabolic Rate Test

“Since I love to eat, and my eating always threatens to overtake my exercising, I personally would love a resting metabolic rate (RMR) test to figure out the amount of calories I use while I’m awake but not moving/exercising.”
Jill Turner, Vice President of Operations at Cooper Concepts
*Resting Metabolic Rate tests are available at Cooper Clinic. Click here for details.

New Workout Clothes
“It’s great to give someone new workout clothes. In my opinion, you can never have too many and it’s always a little bit of encouragement to wear a new item, getting out the door and exercising! Just think wicking and comfortable – Target has some really nice ladies workout clothes, and I haven’t gone wrong with giving gifts to guys from the new Nike store lately.”
Sarah Carroll, Director of Cooper Spa

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.

Clarisonic
 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.


Robe 

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

Introducing Lavender Dreams

Cooper Spa staff are proud to launch our newest product selection focused on using lavender to calm the mind and relax the body. Personally, I am fond of lavender oil’s property to be able to reduce anxiety and stress. The Body Polish and Bath Salt are the perfect accompaniment to our hour and a half of pure bliss, the Harmonic Lavender Sugar Scrub ($150), a service meant to reveal your most beautiful skin; and I must mention the almost fifty minute hydrating full body massage to complete the service!

Lavender Dreams Body Polish ($28, 8oz) is the take-home body polish which will complete about a dozen full-body scrubs in the privacy of your own bath or shower. This product is sugar-based with a variety of health-improving oils, making it readily dissolvable and suitable for all scrub users, even those with sensitive skin. We do want to point out that it is important to hydrate following a polish of any sort; make sure to test any of our Beautiful Fit body lotions as an excellent addition to this at home care for your body.

Lavender Dreams Bath Salts ($20, 16oz) will aide in the relaxation process at home as well as gently exfoliating impurities from the skin and to soothe tense muscles. Lavender bath products are our most highly-requested product and we have happily answered those requests. Our product is made of Salts from the Dead Sea which are known to aide in relieving arthritis, stimulate blood circulation and reduce inflammation among other benefits. A soak of about 10-30 minutes will have you dreaming peacefully at night and feeling afresh the next day.

All Cooper Spa products contain no artificial color or fragrance, are free from parabens and phthalates and are not tested on animals. You can purchase items in our Boutique or by phone and we’ll wrap your gift up beautifully and ship it directly to you.

Spring Sandal Time

Lucid, Ebb & Flow, Deep, Undercurrent, Ripple Effect, Hidden Reef… Get beach ready for spring break with these new colors from SpaRitual, available now at Cooper Spa. The current collection is brought to us with inspiration from water, an invaluable resource and one we’re ready to dive into with rising temperatures.

Sandal season is just around the corner so get your feet out of the winter blues and into some cute flip flops! Michelle, Sherry, Marcia, Ginger and Sara, our highly skilled technicians, are ready to take on the toughest of calluses. We all have hard, rough patches of skin formed by consistent friction on our feet and hands. Our pedicures include a brief, painless file to slough away the dead skin to reveal the natural beauty of the foot; many would say this is the part where they feel their feet are being tickled. I couldn’t imagine getting into my spring wedges and my toes peeking out without one of Cooper Spa’s pedicures. Plus, add some fun color to top it off! It’s a treat that I enjoy but also keeps my feet looking well groomed.

Stop in to see us or call 972.392.7729 to schedule your appointment. And don’t forget to check out our seasonal special, a Sugar and Spice Pedicure using FarmHouseFresh products. This one will leave your mouth watering; fortunately, we have a delicious Izze beverage just for you to enjoy!
