Just For You Day Spa your Trusted Saskatoon Spa answer some great questions - Part 3

posted by Trusted Saskatoon    |   May 26, 2015 09:52

Owner, Jessica Tetu of Just For You Day Spa & Gift Studio, along with her team of dedicated professionals, provide a tranquil Saskatoon spa experience with over 2700 square feet of stunning spa space.

This award winning Saskatoon Spa with its laid back, warm, elegant environment offers a breadth of a truly exceptional spa experience for woman and men. Just For You Day Spa & Gift Studio offers outstanding skin and body therapies, in depth consultations and the tools & knowledge to become your own “spa therapist” at home.

Here Jess answers some great questions - Part 3:

Q: Kim Korktie Hartsook: Is it important to use skin care products from the same line or can you mix and match from different product lines?

 

A: The important thing is that you are indeed following a home care regimen for your skin! The strength and active ingredients in professional products can differ, therefore I would not suggest combining products without consulting a professional first. Some ingredients may counteract each other and hinder the purpose of the product. Some could even cause adverse reactions. Your skin care professional will generally suggest using a home care regimen from one particular line to ensure the best results are achieved.

 

 

Q: Marjorie Smith: If my babysitter cancels, is it taboo to bring my baby along while I get spa services?

 

A: Although some spas may be set up to allow proper space for mom and baby, I do not suggest it. Spa time is generally a very precious time for mothers (or fathers) to enjoy some time away from their little people. To maintain the tranquil, calming experience a spa is designed to offer all of its guests, many spas have restrictions for babies or small children. Having children in the spa could also be a safety concern. Most spas house hot wax, sterilizing and disinfecting chemicals, sharp medical instruments, and even unsupervised pool areas. To experience the best spa visit you can, I definitely suggest finding a helpful sitter and enjoying your relaxation time in peace and quiet! After all…don’t busy moms deserve a little me time too?

 

 

Q: Sonja Jan: Am I supposed to be naked for a massage and will the massage therapist be there when I undress?

 

A: Every massage therapist may differ from spa to spa, however, the comfort of their client should always be of the utmost importance. I suggest requesting a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) to ensure your service provider is qualified and professional. 
Generally, your therapist will step out of the room for your privacy while you undress and make yourself comfortable on the treatment table. You may choose to undress fully or keep undergarments on if this makes you more comfortable. Your therapist should always knock upon re-entering the room to perform your massage and will continue to keep you draped appropriately through your treatment to avoid any discomfort. Following your treatment, your therapist will leave the room for you to re-dress and enter only when you have completed.

Reed Security a Trusted Saskatoon Alarm and Security Expert CONSUMER WARNING: Just Say NO To AGGRESSIVE Door to Door Salespeople

posted by Trusted Saskatoon    |   May 21, 2015 20:47

Reed Security believes when you become a client you will be entering into a relationship – one they want to grow and become long term...they work hard to meet all your Saskatoon Alarm & security needs from day one!

REED SECURITY are Trusted and they are recipients of 2 x 2012 SABEX AWARDS - these Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce awards recognize excellence in business.

Here they share CONSUMER WARNING: Just Say NO To AGGRESSIVE Door to Door Salespeople:


 

Consumer tips:

1. Security Systems are Never FREE and are not worth $1500.

2. ALWAYS get 3 quotes.

3. DO NOT install the system within a few hours of signing up. Give yourself some time to do some research.

 

Consumer Warning:

It's that time of year when you will be getting pressured by door to door salespeople. They would like to sign you up to "limited time offer" that expires "right away". And before you know you know it you're on the hook for thousands of dollars. (This happens several thousand times each year).

For more information do a Google Search and type "Alarm Door to Door". Thousands of people have been duped.

The Pressure:

  • Sales person won't leave even when you tell them to "Leave"
  • Sales person won't leave when you tell them "No Thanks"
  • Sales person won't leave when you say "I Already Have Your Products or Service"
  • Sales person name drops the name of your neighbor and makes it sound like "they signed up" or "they bought one" or "they referred me to you"
  • Sales person comes to the house more than once

 

The Solutions:

1. Put Up Your Hand and "Say NO". Immediately close the door and the sales person will eventually leave.

2. Tell them "You are Trespassing" and that you will call the BBB Better Business Bureau, Consumer Protection Branch and the Police if they do not leave.

    BBB 1-888-352-7601
    Consumer Protection 1-877-880-5550 
    Saskatoon Police (306) 975-8300 

    RCMP (Saskatoon) (306) 975-5173
    or call your Local Detachment

3. Always Get 3 Quotes for whatever you consider purchasing. This gives you the time to gather information and to check if the "deal" being presented to you is the best option.

4. Never Accept Quick Delivery of a product or service. This gives you a cooling off period and more time to gather facts.

5. If you did proceed with the offer You Have 10 Days to Change Your Mind and CANCEL (and get a full refund). It's the Law in Saskatchewan.

6. Don't Forget - You may already be in a contract for the products or services being offered to you.

posted by Trusted Saskatoon    |   May 21, 2015 09:25

What you may not know is there is help and the answer is Oxford Learning Center.

Based on decades of research into how children learn, they designed a radically new approach to teaching and this is how Oxford Learning came to be the powerhouse of better learning that it is today. The Oxford Learning Saskatoon tutoring team will give your child the tools for a life time of learning; You really couldn’t give your child a better gift.

Oxford Learning Center are your Trusted Saskatoon tutors and educators

Here they share a tip on Bad Grades:

Why is my child getting bad grades and what can I do about it?

Bad grades in school can be caused by any number of problem areas (and sometimes more than one). Being able to pinpoint the issue(s) is the first step to fixing it. Here’s the 8 trouble spots we notice that negatively impact learning; the good news is, we can help with every single one of them!

Eight Trouble Spots That Lead to Bad Grades

(and info to help)

 

1. Literacy Issues
You can’t understand test questions, homework assignments, classroom discussions, or essay-writing if your reading and writing skills aren’t up to par. Grade 3 is a pivotal year, when students should be moving from learning to read, to reading to learn. But many students reading abilities lag far behind, impacting every subject (even math).

2. Organization Issues
A messy room isn’t just an issue when company is coming over. Disorganization is one of the biggest problems for students and families, and it can show itself in many ways and contribute to many problems. Homework/supplies forgotten, test/project due dates unknown, too many activities and not enough time, binders/backpacks/lockers/bedrooms that could classify as disaster areas… all are indicative of organization issues that will cause students to struggle.

3. Communication Issues
Students not asking teachers for help, parents not speaking to teachers regularly, parents and kids not discussing school every night at home. Communication is key to success, and everyone needs to do their part.

4. Attention/Focus Issues
Daydreaming in class. Constant multitasking. Endless procrastination. It’s not so much what’s being learned that’s the problem, it’s all the things around you that are distracting you from learning! Our fast-paced, tech-driven world, with its endless supply of information at our fingertips, might actually be causing a lot of harm, as well as good.

5. Health Issues
Brains don’t work effectively if the bodies they live in aren’t healthy. Students may not have any serious health issues affecting their learning, but things like skipping breakfast, not getting outside/exercising regularly, and staying up late can drag grades down more than you might think.

Fit Bodies, Fit Brains

 

6. Social/Confidence Issues
It’s hard to learn much of anything in school if you’re not comfortable being there in the first place. Students with social/confidence problems may be overly shy or introverted, feel awkward or uncomfortable, or even be bullied at school. This makes the classroom a place they want to escape, not one they want to learn in.

Raise Your Hand (grades 1-6)
Raise Your Hand (grades 7-12)
Shyness

7. Motivation Issues
School is simply not interesting. Students may be bored with school because it’s too hard, too easy, because what they want to learn is not taught in classrooms, or they’re not really interested in learning much of anything.

8. Exam/Performance Issues
You know all the information, you’ve studied hard, but on exam day, you freeze. Some students just don’t do well on tests, and though other work may be handed in and completed well, poor performance on exam days can make grades drop drastically. Studying can then become a nightmare with anticipation of test day, and the entirety of exam time can become majorly stress-inducing for students.
