All of this happens in as little as 45 minutes while sit and relax to soothing music and sip a refreshing glass of lemon water.

To make this experience even more special you at the Ultimate Facial Mask, also slathered in a yummy herbal solution made just for the skin on your face, to make it look younger and more hydrated.  Now you have added a straw to your delicious lemon water so you don’t get your mask wet.

PERFECT for Holistic Health Practitioners


“Hottest, most profitable, massage therapy add-on on the market…”
-As seen on CNN

Do you work with people who are losing weight?  How about people who want to detoxify (mind/body/spirit)?  Do you work with people who have inflammation and chronic pain?  Please keep reading…

I have always believed in a whole body approach to health and wellness.  I was a psychologist for 26 years and always felt it was important to address peoples issues holistically.  I am a trained sound healer, visionary artist, intuitive and hands on healer. I have studied nutrition on a personal level for 25 years. I was excited when I discovered a supplement line that I could take in complete confidence but also share with others.  One of the products, The Ultimate Body Applicator has turned the industry upside down, because of what it does for the body and because it has no competition in the market place.

Are you a massage therapist, chiropractor, hydro-colon therapist, hands on healer, or anything of that nature? Would you like to add a second income stream to your business that would enhance the work you are doing already?

Would you like to offer your clients solutions that they can work with to improve their health and wellness?

Would you like to leverage your time so you can do everything that you want to do in the world?

Would you like to work smarter not harder?

I love to collaborate with like minded people in mutual support so…

Read on.

I have discovered a product with a system that not only enhances what you are doing with clients but adds a new stream of income for you.

The product is called the Ultimate Body Applicator which was created by Luis Mijares.  Luis’s passion for research and development in the skin care, nutritional, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries began when he was a child, learning natural herbal remedies from his grandmother in Mexico. His has abundant credentials, including his experience as the CEO of a top pharmaceutical company, as an international renown  herbalist and university educator of phytotherapy (the uses of plants for medicinal purposes), along with his keen personal interest in natural solutions has lead to the creation of this product.

Luis developed a synergistic, botanically based cream which when applied to the body not only tightens, tones and firms but also sends healing nutrients deep into the layers of the skin.  These herbs go into the skin and begin a process which can enhance any kind of healing work the practitioner is doing.  This herbal solution can reduce pain and inflammation, minimize the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite and it is doing so much more.

If you work with clients to detoxify their body, clients with pain and inflammation, clients who are trying to lose weight and clients who want to improve their health, and if you understand energy, vibration and the healing power of herbs the Ultimate Body Applicator is the perfect companion for your work.

What is the “Ultimate Applicator”!?

The Ultimate Applicator is a site-specific non-woven cloth body wrap composed of all-natural water and oil soluble herbal ingredients, with no synthetic, artificial or animal by-products. The Applicators have been in scientific formulation for over 25 years, and were previously only offered in very high-end spas and cruise lines. The Applicators contain a powerful herbal serum that penetrates deep into the sub dermal layers of the skin.  As you can see by the list of ingredients below, some of the herbs in the solution are known to  stimulate cellular lipolytic activity and increase lymphatic drainage, others tighten, tone and firm the skin and hydrate as well as reduce inflammation.  The synergy created by combining the herbs in specific timing and specific amounts makes the formula even more powerful.

How is it applied?

It’s TOO SIMPLE! Just put it on anywhere you are looking to tone and tighten your skin, and then remove after 45 minutes! The wrap employs an easy, one-step, 45 minute application directly to the surface of the skin!  It takes about 2 minutes to apply and is mess free.  Here are the simple steps:


How would I make money with It Works!?

1. Sell the Applicators at retail! Upon registering with It Works!, the wraps are available to you at a wholesale cost of about $15.00 each. At a typical retail price of $25-$40 to your customer, that’s a markup of 200-400% of pure PROFIT for YOU! Simply suggest to those you come in contact with that you have a new herbal body wrap that will help them tone tighten and firm their waistline in just 45 minutes! And let the wraps speak for themselves. The wraps are no mess, easy to apply and extremely lightweight! You can sell your wraps on the internet, at your home spa parties, or in your own store front. The
choice is yours, and the opportunities are endless.

2.Use the Applicator as an adjunct service to enhance the work that you are doing for the client.  It takes two minutes to apply at the beginning of the session, with no mess, no need for water or added equipment.  The wrap does it’s work while you are doing your service and removed at the end of your session, thus enhancing the work you just completed.  Practitioners typically add $30-$50 for this add on.

3. Earn a residual income by creating loyal customers! As your customers, friends, and family begin to fall in love with the Applicators, you will start to refer them to visit your It Works! website, where they will purchase the wraps at a reduced price, and you will receive 15% of their total purchases! You will receive this 15% for the lifetime of their purchases! When you reach 60 active customers, you will receive an add-on bonus of $600, automatically! You do nothing! The applicators are shipped to their homes, and you receive a check every month!

4. Refer other practitioners, who you feel would benefit if they added this service to there practice, to become distributors on your team.  Within your very first month as a product distributor, you will have realized the great income potential this service provides. And, if you are in the position where you know a few others who might also want to earn some great income from home, you will very likely have the potential to retire much earlier than you may have planned! When you sign up a new distributor, you earn 10-15% of that new distributor’s sales for as long as they continue to sell! And when your new distributor signs another distributor to sell the Applicators, you get 10-15% of their sales as well! You can see the potential for HUGE amounts of residual income.

AESCULUS HIPPOCASTANUM (Horse Chestnut): Provides astringent and anti-inflammatory benefits for products treating reddened, irritated or sensitive skin. In Germany, extract from its seed has been approved to treat poor circulation to the legs, leg cramps, swelling and non-specific leg heaviness. Traditionally used for its ability to reduce varicose veins and to treat hemorrhoids.

CAMELLIA SINENSIS (Green Tea) Extract: Green tea is known to contain two active groups of chemicals known as xanthenes and polyphenols or catechins. The xanthenes include components such as caffeine, theobromine and theophylline. These active agents have been demonstrated to suppress inflammation and irritation, and more recently, they have been shown to reduce cellulite. Polyphenols (also know as catechins) exhibit powerful anti-oxidant properties, which play an important role in the prevention of cell damage. Consequently, green tea extract is considered to play a vital role in protecting the cell from free radical damage initiated by environmental factors such as exposure to UV light. Powerful antioxidant components help prevent or delay skin aging.

CENTELLA ASIATICA (Hydrocotyl): Applied to the skin, it acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. Studies at the Department of Dermatology in Strasbourg indicate it is a strong anti-inflammatory agent, effective in the treatment of wounds, ulcers and lymphatic edema. Particularly suited to the fragile skin around the eyes. Hydrocotyl extract assists in reducing inflammation and sensitivity of the skin. Tightens the skin and increases the elasticity. Hydrocotyl extract is used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine to combat excessively dry skin.

EQUISETUM ARVENSE (Horsetail) Extract: This herb has a long history as an effective treatment for damaged and tired skin. Used for its astringent, tightening, and firming properties on the skin. It helps heal wounds. It also helps to improve the elasticity of the skin. The herb helps eliminate excess oil from skin and hair. Coadjutant in treatment of wrinkled skins.

EUCALYPTUS GLOBUS (Eucalyptus) LEAF OIL: Disinfectant, stimulating, clears skin blemishes by reducing excessive oiliness. Promotes the regeneration of skin tissue. Valued for its awakening revitalizing fragrance. Eucalyptus oil has blood stimulation properties (A vaso-dilator that improves blood circulation), beneficial for the treatment of hair loss. It has antiseptic, cooling and stimulating properties. Eucalyptus oil has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties on the skin. It can also be a skin irritant, particularly on abraded skin.

FUCUS VESICULOSUS (Seaweed) Extract: Derived from the dried Thallus (bulbous root) of Fucus Vesiculosus, a type of seaweed. It is rich in the same vital nutrients, trace elements and amino acids present in human blood plasma, allowing it to penetrate the skin more thoroughly than most other ingredients. It speeds up the elimination of toxins from cells and is a natural cellular renewal ingredient. It also helps to nourish and remineralize the skin. High in silicon, which is believed to keep the skin from wrinkling and sagging, it is used for its anti-inflammatory and revitalizing properties.

HEDERA HELIX (Ivy) Extract: Extracted from the evergreen climbing plant. Ivy is well known for its toning, tightening and skin refining properties. Ivy Extract has slimming and anti-cellulite properties, as it prevents water accumulation in skin tissues. It is antibacterial and soothing in cases of sunburn. Ivy Extract is currently being studied for its vasoconstrictive properties, due to its Vitamin P. Lowers tissue sensitivity, activates circulation, and helps reduce local inflammation. Ivy has a long history in folk medicine for use in cases of skin eruptions and skin ulcerations. It is also widely used to dress wounds and treat pus-exuding sores. Coadjutant in treatment of wrinkles.

MENTHOL: A natural cooling agent, derived from mint oils. Anti-inflammatory and anti-itching to the skin. Imparts a cool, fresh and clean feeling to the skin. Has a soothing property if used in concentrations of 1% or less.

METHYLSILANOL MANNURONATE: This is an organic derivative of seaweed that binds moisture in the epidermis, thus firming and strengthening the skin.

It is used when a positive effect on the sustaining skin tissue is desired, for reduction and prevention of the effects of coetaneous aging, for destroying free radicals, and for moisturizing. In vitro studies have shown that Methylsilanol Mannuronate normalizes cellular metabolism, is a tissue regenerator and aids in the reduction of cellulite.

PANTHENOL: Also known as Vitamin B%, acts as a penetrating moisturizer. It imparts a nonirritant; nonsensitizing, moisturizing, and conditioning feel and promotes normal keratinization and wound healing. Panthenol protects the skin against sunburn, provides relief from existing sunburn, and enhances the natural tanning process.

PAULLINIA CUPANA (Guarana Seed) Extract: High in tannins and caffeine (higher in caffeine than any other plant source), it is used in cosmetic preparations as an astringent and to stimulate circulation.

ROSMARINUS OFFICINALIS (Rosemary) Oil: Valued for its reviving, blood vessel widening, and invigorating properties, used as a tissue toner and firmer. Its astringent and antiseptic nature stimulates metabolic processes in the skin’s dermal layer.

Leissa of Leissa’s Hair Studio and Day Spa is into Image Crafting!

I discovered Leissa’s Hair Studio and Day Spa on my first trip to Menomonie, Wisconsin a few weeks ago. Menomonie is a quaint college town only about an hour from the Twin Cities. When I walked into the Hair Studio I felt welcomed right away by the atmosphere, the little boutique and the staff who were working there. It is a Day Spa that invites you in from the street. I don’t always feel that when I am walking by a spa/salon. Leissa Berenschot, the owner, wasn’t there that day so I didn’t get to meet her until later. I fell in love with the wild animal motifs painted on the bathroom walls.

I left with a brochure of all of the services from the salon which are extensive and worth the drive.

From the Hair Studio website:

Everyone is talking about Leissa’s Hair Studio and Day Spa…

A Beautiful Experience
Upon arriving at Leissa’s, you will step into a café and margarita bistro. As you stroll into the reception area, you will be surrounded by an array of unique hand painted art from local artists. Your experience begins! From the time that you check in until the time you depart you will have had an experience like no other.

While in our studio, enjoy shopping in our unique boutique. Here you will find tantalizing fragrances, stylish shoes and apparel, knockout hand bags, and trendy jewelry. It’s a great place to just be a girl!’

I wanted to interview Leissa, not just because of the beautiful place she has created but because she has overcome a lot of obstacles to make it happen.

I took a drive back to the Hair Studio on a sunny day in June to meet with Leissa and talk with her. When I arrived, Leissa wasn’t there yet, and her daughter made me feel comfortable by making me a cup of cappuccino. I sat in the bistro and sipped my cappuccino while I waited.

When Leissa arrived she had her Pomeranian puppy in a carrying pouch on her belly and a pan of brownies she had made for our meeting in her hand. Like I said it is a welcoming place!

We had talked over the phone a week earlier and both felt an immediate connection. I had recalled reading somewhere either in the brochure I picked up or on the website about Leissa’s spiritual philosophy but when I went to look for it to refresh my memory I couldn’t find it. Leissa said it was never there, but we agreed that I must have picked it up somehow in a different way.

We talked about spirituality because it was a place we connected right away. Leissa told me that her first spiritual experience happened when she was only three years old. She had fallen into an open hole filled with water. She said she started seeing all different colors, which I have read is common to people who are drowning. Than she felt what she described as a presence and she was lifted out of the hole to safe ground.

She feel there has been a presence with her ever since. Liessa has had numerous experiences where she feels there is something spiritual happening. One thing that happens all of the time is feathers show up in unexpected places. She often finds them around the Hair Studio, especially if she has asked for guidance on something. She feels, and I concur that it is an angelic presence. For example, she recently lost one of her dogs and a few days later her husband was mowing the lawn and found an eagle feather on the dogs grave. I know how hard eagle feathers are to find because I have always hope to find one, so this seem like more than a coincidence.

I am always curious about how someone gets on the path to being an entrepreneur. Leissa told me it was always in her family. Her father owned a drive in restaurant and all the children worked there. He had a strong work ethic and she picked it up and it is with her today, even though she is sick much of the time. She is also very creative which is apparent throughout the Studio. Her mother, who Leissa describes as very beautiful, was a top Mary Kay consultant. She was also involved in the fashion industry and that had an influence on her as well.

When Leissa was a young girl she was teased because of a scar on her lip. She feels this is one of the things that pushed her in the direction of beauty because she understood on a deep level the importance of feeling good about yourself, and what it feels like when you don’t. She loved to experiment with different clothing styles and make-up and people started coming to her for advice. Leissa left home at 16 with a baby and put herself through beauty school with a $100 from her boyfriend. That was almost 27 years ago.

Leissa’s journey has not always been easy and she has over come a lot of obstacles to keep this dream alive. Fifteen years ago she was diagnosed with Chronic fatigue Immune dysfunction, which is not like Chronic fatigue. It attacks the immune system so she suffers from pain in her joints, muscles and nerve endings and is allergic to most everything. She loves what she does but her health keeps her from being able to go to the studio much of the time and she feels guilt because she feels she should be there. She is often unable to get out of bed for weeks at a time because of the fatigue. At one point she found she was no longer able to stand and cut and style hair. Not wanting to give up on her passion she went to massage school so she could incorporate that into the business and do that instead. This is the kind of tenacity Leissa has and passion for what she does. With all she has been through with this illness, she still has a positive attitude and told me,” Mishaps turn into Miracles all of the time!”

The Hair Studio and Day Spa has all the services you would expect such as hair care, massage, facials, make-up, manicures and pedicures, with an added twist. Leissa describes what they do at the Studio and Day Spa as Image Crafting. She defines this as helping a person define the look they want to have for personal development and joyful living. There is a skill to this because you have to be part therapist, part diplomat and have an eye for what would look good on someone. She said they listen to where a person is in their life and help them come up with a look that will serve them best. The diplomat comes in when you have to tell someone who they don’t really look good in the hairstyle they have had all of their lives or that the way they are applying make-up doesn’t look good on them. You have to create a connection that allows for honest feedback that doesn’t offend. Leissa does that with her positive attitude, her honesty and her understanding of current styles. Leissa feels it is important for a person to come into their studio and have a total experience. They want to help clients move forward with their goals by leaving there with the confidence that they can do what ever they dream they can do.

Leissa says the salon has gone through many transformations to get the point it is right now. It started in a space in back of another shop and now it fills the whole space. There are different cozy areas including a boutique, bistro, salon, nail and foot area, and spa area, each with their own personality but also part of the whole ambiance of the Studio.

Speaking of the spiritual, it is clear to me that the warm, welcoming, nurturing environment that has been created at Leissa’s Hair Studio and Day Spa was a highly intuitive, creative process, with help from the angels. I could feel a spiritual presence there. There are 13 people on staff and Leissa said they are always hugging each other, which I saw while I was there. Every where you look is another example of comfort and coziness, as you can see in the photos.

Leissa is very generous, she made me brownies even though she didn’t even know me. She is involved in fundraisers for various charities, through fashion shows and also has gone to high schools to talk to pregnant teens about what their future might be like. She is generous in the Spa as well. She talked about a women coming in three weeks ago that was almost homeless. She gave her a free cut and color and picked out some outfits from the boutique and gave them to her. You wouldn’t think that would be the best way to support someone who is homeless but to help someone feel better about themselves is more helpful than you would think.

Here is an example of Leissa’s intuitive and generous spirit. While we were sitting there chatting, a mom came in with a couple of young children and a daughter who looked like she was in her early twenties. They were raving about the salon and how beautiful it was. Mom said that her daughter was a hair stylist in Dubuque Iowa and they had looked in Leissa’s windows over the weekend and she wanted to come in and look at it. Leissa said ” we have an opening, you should come and work for us’ as she got up to go to where the girl was standing. The younger woman said ” I wasn’t planning on looking for a job” and Leissa said ” things happen for a reason. Before they were done the young woman was thinking about talking with her boyfriend about moving and Leissa was giving her private contact information. Mind you I knew that she wasn’t feeling great and it would have been just as easy to do nothing. She told me she felt a connection right away with the young woman and would love to have her work in the Studio.

Leissa’s Hair Studio and Day Spa is not just another salon, it is a destination. A walk through doors that lead to an experience that is nurturing and nourishing to the soul. You will leave feeling like a king or a queen, with a new spring in your step, because of the royal treatment you have received. Don’t be surprised if you find a feather on your path after your visit.
