14 Tips to Prepare and Enjoy Your New Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash Extensions 12" 
When I was a child, I had full, long and beautiful lashes. People commented about them all the time and my mother even told her friends how they were one of my finer features.

However, as I have aged my lashes (like everything else), have gotten thinner and shorter. Out of frustration, about a year ago I called Maria Suciu at Callatis Spa to extend my lashes and I have received endless compliments ever since! 

But you do need to prepare for the procedure which takes between 1.5 to 2 hours. Now, that may seem like a long time, but if you take care of your lashes, you only need to come back every 4-6 weeks. 

Below are the 14 tips:

Different Colors Available at Callatis Spa

  1. Remove all your eye makeup and creams. 
  2. Take out your contacts -- bring your glasses to your appointment. 
  3. Don't drink a lot of liquids before your appointment because your eyelids are going to be closed for whole time. However, Maria recommends you drink a lot of water the day before to make certain your skin is hydrated. 
  4. Always, always have your lashes put on by a licensed esthetician.  
  5. Select what color lashes you want to put on. Check out the photo above for some options. 

Eyelash Extensions -- Beautiful! 

  1. Try and relax and listen to the music played at Callatis Spa
  2. Bring your own iPod full of relaxing music to listen to. 
  3. Once the procedure is over, it is normal for your eyes to water slightly due to the glue. Maria will provide you with a fan that will help dissipate the fumes. 
  1. Keep your lashes bone dry for the first 24 hours. 
  2. Wear only oil-free makeup and use only oil-free makeup remover. 
  3. No need to use mascara! Your lashes already look beautiful!
  4. Use a lash brush. You will need to buy one and comb your lashes when you get out of the shower and before you put on your makeup. 
  5. I use eyeliner to make my eyes pop; but only use water-based or cake eyeliner and wash your brushes out daily. 
  6. Never use an eyelash curler as that will weaken the glue and your lashes will come off. 
I can now say, I have beautiful and sexy lashes thanks to Maria! Give the gift of Callatis Spa to someone special in your life or come in and experience the wonder of lash extensions for yourself! Call Callatis Spa at 330.208.2445 to schedule your appointment. They are open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 am to 6 pm.

What the heck is an Esthetician?

An esthetician is a person who specializes in the beautification of the skin. They perform cosmetic skin treatments such as facials, light chemical peels, body treatments, and waxing.

Estheticians work at salons, day spas, and medi-spas. They are trained in the cosmetic treatment of the skin. Most estheticians offer a variety of specialty spa treatments.

All estheticians must be licensed in the state that they are working in, complete 260 to 600 hours of training,  and pass both a written and a hands-on exam.

A good esthetician, such as Maria Suciu, strives to stay abreast of the latest developments in skin care.

Callatis Spa offers all of these services and products that can keep you feeling well in between visits! Give us a call at 330-208-2445 to schedule an appointment. We are open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 am to 6 pm.

What is Reiki? How Can You Benefit from it?

Reiki (pronounced ray kee) was developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Here is the definition:

Rei- Means the universal energy outside all living things, the highest spiritual consciousness
-ki   Means life force energy that is inside all living things and their surroundings. 
Maria Suciu at Callatis Spa is both a Reiki practitioner and Master in Reiki. In a session, she would lay her hands on you and transfer the universal energy (Rei) to your own life force energy (ki) -- thus bringing you into a state of equilibrium. The practitioner does this via qi (pronounced CHe) which is the balance of negative and positive forms in the body and believed to be essential for good health. If your life force energy is low, you are most likely to be experiencing stress or depression, if it is high you are happy and healthy. Maria taps into your life force energy to improve your quality of life.

Reiki is great for stress reduction and relaxation. It leaves most individuals feeling at peace and with serenity.

The treatment is meant to give you a wonderful feeling because it treats the whole person -- body, mind, and emotions.

Here is one way to sum up the Reiki philosophy:

The secret art of inviting happiness
The miraculous medicine of all diseases
Just for today, do not anger
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude
Devote yourself to your work. 
Be kind to people.
Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer.  
--- Usui Mikao, Founder of Reiki

If you would like to schedule a 30- or 60-minute Reiki session, please call Callatis Spa at 330-208-2445. We are a full-service day spa open Tuesday through Saturday 10 am to 6 PM. We are conveniently located in Cuyahoga Falls, just minutes from State Route 8.

Is Your Skin Taking a Beating this Winter? A Hydrating Organic Facial is the Cure!

Right now, our skin is taking a real beating. With the gray skies of northeast Ohio, the fact that we are spending most of our time inside, and to top it all off, there is little or no humidity in the air -- it isn't any wonder that our face looks ashen, wrinkled, and dry.

We drink plenty of water and try to moisturize. This works for a little while, but what we really need is some extra TLC to treat our winterized skin.

Callatis Spa is just the place to go! With Valentine's Day around the corner it is the perfect place to go to look extra special for the man in your life. Make sure to ask your special someone to purchase a Callatis Spa gift certificate for you!

Here are the benefits of a great hydrating organic facial:

  1. Maximizes the skins hydration levels
  2. Combats signs of aging
  3. Gives skin a healthy glow
  4. Leaves skin revitalized and refreshed
  5. Deeply relaxing
  6. Great for all skin types, especially dry and sensitive skin
If you want to breath new life into your dry, mature, and stressed skin with a deeply nourishing and hydrating facial, call Callatis Spa at 330-208-2445 to schedule an appointment. We are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm. Call today, don't delay!

4 Hints to Make Your New Year's Resolutions Stick

Happy New Year, Everyone!

As we start the new year, most everyone has great hope that this will be their best year ever. You will lose those 15 pounds that you have put on over the years. You will exercise more. You will come home from work earlier so you can spend more quality time with your family.

And the list goes on and on....

But what about a resolution that puts yourself first? One that you can stick to all year long?

Most resolutions are vague and lose momentum about the end of February. You don't see the weight peeling off your body, you have missed several days at the gym, or you were just slammed with a big project at work that is cutting into your family time. It is now that you feel like a "resolution" failure. But, it doesn't have to be that way.

The key is finding time for yourself and creating a balanced life. Balance can be created by giving yourself time to re-energize yourself. And one the best places to do so is at a spa.

Here are 4 great tips to keep your resolution going all year long:

Tip #1: Write down clear, measurable goals. 

Here is an example of an unclear goal:
"I am going to take better care of myself." 
A clear goal has 5 elements, that are indicated in the following acronym -- SMART which stands for:

Specific: I will take natural supplements plus walk 15 minutes every day and go for an hour long meditative massage every two weeks.

Measurable: You will know whether or not you achieved these results, because you have set specific goals.

Attainable: This is where you ask yourself if you have the time and desire to make these goals happen.

Realistic: Are these goals realistic given all the demands in your life? If the answer is yes, keep the goal. If it is no, you will need to revise it.

Timely: Can you achieve these goals in 2013? If the answer is no, revise the goals.

Tip #2: Visualize what your life looks like when you achieve your goals. 

See yourself calmer, balanced and healthy. See your skin as clear and flawless. See your tension displaced with happy and calm thoughts.

Tip #3: Get to the source if you find you are having a hard time meeting your resolutions. 

This is a time to ask for help. Perhaps you need to ask your partner to watch the children when you go for your massage. Or ask your co-workers to walk with you during the lunch break. Or have your children pitch in with household chores. Whatever the situation, finding out why you can't make your resolutions happen is the key to overcoming those obstacles.

Tip #4: Reward yourself with every accomplishment. 

If you have been sticking with your plan for 30, 60, or 90 days, give yourself a reward for the effort. Perhaps you get a facial with your next massage appointment. Or you buy an iPod so you have music while you are walking. Whatever it is, make certain the reward is comparable to accomplishment.

Their services include facials, microdermabrasion, massages, ear candling, waxing, eyelash extensions and Reiki. Please like their Facebook page for more information about their services!
