Why Give a Callatis Spa Gift Certificate for the Holidays? Let Me Count the Reasons!


My mother is an avid gift certificate buyer during the holidays. She procures certificates for all 4 of her children from whatever retail operation we desire. And even though I know what I am getting for Christmas, I am always delighted to open the envelope each and every year.

She is the typical gift buyer who faces the dilemma of buying for adults of a certain age. Most likely the person has everything they desire BUT you still desire to do something for that special person in your life.

This year, I told her to to buy me a certificate from Callatis Spa. She said to me "I live in Michigan, you live in NE Ohio -- how can I get it for you?" I said, "No problem! Just call Maria and she will run your credit card information and send you the certificate!" And that is what she did!

So, if you are still on the fence about a gift certificate, here are 4 benefits they bring:


  1. Gift certificates are great for the hard-to-buy.

    If you are racking your brain to buy something for a loved one, employee, or friend -- gift certificates are a great option because they allow the recipient of your gift to choose whatever  product or service they want over the course of a year. They can use it once or multiple times depending on the denomination.
  2. Cash is crude -- especially for a holiday gift.

    No one wants to give cash for the holidays when a gift certificate is so much more personal. While cash works well for other occasions such as birthdays or graduations, it is considered a "lazy" option for holiday giving. This is the time where it is expected for you to put some thought and effort into a gift, rather than just going to the bank for a 5-minute withdrawal.
  3. You don't have to fight post-holiday crowds to return an item.

    Rather than standing in long lines at the mall or retail outlet returning an unwanted sweater or  pants that are in the wrong size, a gift certificate is the perfect choice because there are so many options at the retailer.
  4. The person can use it all year long for anything the retail establishment offers. 

    A holiday gift is here today, gone tomorrow. However, a gift certificate can be used whenever the recipient wants to use it and it can be used for multiple products or services.

    For example, perhaps you are thinking of giving a certificate for $100 to your mother-in-law. She could come into Callatis Spa for an eyebrow wax ($15) and the next week stop by for bath oils ($20) and the following week another eyebrow touch-up ($12). She still has money left to treat herself and you to a chair massage ($10 each). She has choices and she feels empowered using the certificate. 
Gift certificates are an easy and convenient way to give the gift of...choice! Come by Callatis Spa Tuesday through Saturday between 10 am and 6 PM to pick up your gift certificate for that special someone! If you are time crunched, call 330-208-2445 with your credit card and we will mail it out to you or your loved one. Don't delay -- the holidays are quickly approaching!

Drink Good Quality Water Every Day! Here are the 4 Reasons Why You Should



We all know that water is essential to good health and without the proper amount of it, you can become dehydrated and experience severe health problems.

But how much do you actually need and why would you ever invest in a filtration system for it?

According to the Institute of Medicine, the total beverage intake for men is 13 cups per day and for women it is 9 cups daily. This intake includes all beverages -- milk, soda, coffee, and of course water.

But since water comprises 60% of our body weight, it is important to provide enough pure water into your system to flush out toxins from vital organs, carry nutrients to our cells, and provide a moist environment for our ears, nose, and throat. For this reason alone, it is vital make water your number one choice of beverages.

But what are the benefits in drinking purified filtered water from your own tap? Here are the 4 benefits you will receive by doing so:

  1. Reduction in Chemical and Physical Toxins.
    When the water passes through the purified water technology, such as the PiMag system, the most harmful contaminants are filtered out of the water.
  2. Elimination of Mineral Deposits.
    Purified water can help decrease the stress load on your kidneys and enhance nutritional wellness in your body.
  3. Removal of a Bad Taste In Your Mouth. 
    City and well water have a taste that is distinctly their own. City water, while it is somewhat purified and tested, comes through your tap via old pipes that can carry traces of toxins to your front door. Well water can be full of rust and iron deposits from your local aquifer.

    By investing in a water filtration system, the materials can remove all the distasteful particles, add trace minerals, and balance the pH level in the water to make it more alkaline for a better tasting beverage.
  4. Purified Tap Water is Better for the Environment Than Bottled Water. 
    Would it surprise you to learn that 28 Billion plastic bottles are thrown away each year? And it takes 17 million barrels of to oil to manufacture all those bottles each and every year?

    The PiMag water technology provides for a counter top and under the counter system that includes multiple filters to eliminate a broad range of tap water contaminants. All of this without ever investing in disposable plastic bottles.
