Keep Austin Stylish Features New milk + honey Flagship

December 30, 2012

The fine folks at Keep Austin Stylish stopped by our new digs at the corner of Guadalupe and Cesar Chavez to check us out. Here’s just a little of what they had to say:

The new space is bigger and more open with floor to ceiling windows looking out towards the trails and the lake.  It’s a beautiful space and I had the pleasure of gettin my hair did at the new Austin salon.  I came in expecting to get just a cut, but after I told her that my hair had gotten super dry lately, my gal Amber hooked me up with a gloss treatment as well!

Call milk + honey at 512.236.1115 to get your cut and gloss treatment today.

A New, Simpler VIP Program at milk + honey

October 4, 2012

At milk + honey it is easier than ever to be a VIP (Very Important Partisan). We have made a few changes to our VIP Program. Now you will be able to exchange “milk money” for any treatment, any day of the week.
Here’s how it works, for every 50,000 points you earn, you’ll receive a milk money credit worth $40 to spend on services, products, or gift certificates. Now you can use your milk money for any service any day of the week, with no restrictions.

Earning 50,000 points is easy. You are automatically enrolled in our VIP program from the first time you make a purchase at milk + honey. You could be close to receiving your milk money and not even know it!

Spending $1 at milk + honey on services, products, series or memberships gets you 100 points. Referring a friend who has never visited milk + honey before lands you 10,000 points. Pre-book your next treatment at checkout, that’s another 2,500 points. Click here to see the complete list of ways to get your milk money even faster.

Once you earn 50,000 points we’ll send you an email alerting you that you have earned milk money. Before, if you lost your milk money certificate, you were out of luck. Not now. We’ll keep track of it for you in our system. Next time you’re in the spa or salon, just let them know you’d like to use your $40 milk money credit on the service. Done and done. That’s right, milk money may now be used on any of our Massages, Body Treatments, Facials,Nail Treatments, Hair Treatments, Gift Certificates, and products any day of the week.

There is no catch, though feel free to read complete details of our VIP program. We feel it is the best rewards program, especially considering you’re already doing something you love.

But beware Very Important Partisans! Enjoying spa and salon treatments at milk + honey may be habit forming, resulting in lower levels of stress, increased beauty, and moments of extreme contentment.

The weather is changing in Austin and so is our skin.
The practice of dry skin brushing may be old news to those who practice the daily routine, but with all the skin care products and hypes out there, we thought it important to re-introduce a process that is not only a great way to maintain healthy skin, but also helps you to maintain a healthy body. The ability of the skin to excrete toxins is of paramount importance to you. Stimulation of the skin sets in motion natural healing pathways within your body. Additionally, it encourages nerve beds within its structure that in turn increases normal healing processes throughout the body.

Feel Good Health

June 3, 2012

Matt is one of our fantastic massage therapists at milk + honey spa 2nd Street District.

When speaking with my clients concerning their goals for our session, many of them specify distinct musculoskeletal concerns they would like me to address, while others simply shrug and answer with,  “I just wanna relax and feel good.” Almost inevitably they wind up getting a little of both.

I have a definite scope of practice as a massage therapist that focuses on stress relief and relief from myofascial dysfunction.  I cannot avoid working with individual’s health and fitness goals. As such my clients consistently expose me to new practices related to those goals. I’m a curious person and I do my own research too.

Should you poke around in cyberspace for answers to your health or fitness goals, you will inevitably encounter marketing motivating you to take up behavior XYZ for the sake of health, happiness, and feeling good. I think the underlying narrative suggests that if you’re not healthy you won’t feel good, but what about the other way around? Does feeling good promote health?

The short answer, turns out, is yes.

Surely you’ve heard that laughter is the best medicine. According to helpguide.org laughter boosts immunity, lowers stress hormones, decreases pain, relaxes muscles and is even good for your heart. It’s like a whole body internal massage. Of course laughter also improves mood. Similarly, behavioral psychologists have famously experimented with and confirmed the relationship between acts such as smiling and the mental and emotional state of their subjects. Many have measured their results in the relative abundance or absence of stress-hormones and neurotransmitter levels. They advocate a certain fake it ’till you make it approach.

Laughing with friends is even better because it engenders those feelings of safety, connection, and community that allow us to step away from our stress triggers. Leisure, and respite from routine also allows us to normalize our stress levels. Sun on the skin (protected by a high SPF of course) elevates moods and increases vitamin D production. Hearing the gentler sounds of nature, breezes through the trees, and the soft lap of water on the shores lowers the heart rate and connects us with something bigger than our problems. Touch produces the feel good hormone oxytocin, so even spending time at the petting zoo can be rewarding. Hearing your favorite music produces all kinds of feel good neurotransmitters and activates ecstatic centers in the brain. In fact, preemie babies have shown to thrive when their care takers play soothing music.

So is this really news to you? In this day and age we all know that the body and mind influence one another. Though stress effects allow an organism to overcome extreme threat, the correlation between prolonged stress and illness, including myofascial dysfunction, are well documented. We all know that the effects of stress correlate positively with disease. Feeling good promotes health, and it does so primarily because it combats the effects of prolonged extreme stress.

I constantly hear people in our culture defend their behaviors of overwork. They delay their private time and feel-good time, citing obstacles and goals. People brag about how much they’ve done and how little they’ve slept, or how much time they don’t have. I do it too. It’s a feature of our culture. We feel we must continue our efforts even when our physical and emotional well being suffer. Truly, life without challenge would feel empty. But there’s another side of the story that describes an optimal balance for health, and even productivity. Salon.com has an article about this called “Bring Back the 40-Hour Work Week.” That balance requires the phenomenon of making sure you feel good.
