Erik of Norway Massage Therapy

Erik of Norway Salon & Spa would like to introduce to you our two amazing massage therapists:

Judy has been in the business seven years, having attended the Lakeside School of Massage Therapy. She chose the profession to help others experience relaxation and pain relief through the healing power of touch. Judy finds it very fulfilling to know that she can make a positive difference for each person that she works with. She believes that everyone can benefit from massage because it is intended to enhance relaxation, reduce stress hormones (such as cortisol) and increase endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers). Massage also reduces muscle tension, improves circulation and provides a positive experience overall. Judy describes her specialty as ‘Swedish Massage techniques incorporated with a variety of integrative modalities such as trigger point, myofascial release, aromatherapy and hydrotherapy.’ Her interests outside of work include her family of course, as well as crafts and outdoor activities.

  Reviews of Judy from recent guests of Erik of Norway: 
“Judy is the best masseuse in Milwaukee metro area”
“Judy is outstanding”
“Judy is an excellent massage therapist. She is very sensitive to the client’s preferences and requests.”
“Judy is an excellent massage therapist. She tailors each session to the client’s needs.”
“I had the best massage from Judy in your spa. She does a fantastic job. Best massage I have ever had”

           Jeremy is the newest edition to the EON spa team family. He graduated from The Institute of Beauty and Wellness in the Third Ward. He chose massage therapy after experiencing physical therapy and was interested in becoming more educated on the human body. He has recently celebrated his one year anniversary with us. His goal is to assist as many people as he can in developing a pain free lifestyle. Jeremy informs us that replacing a workout with a massage increases the effectiveness or your other weekly workouts by increasing your energy and mobility. His technique focuses on deep tissue massage and he aims to assist athletes in returning to their sports. He is an athlete himself and outside interests include volleyball, swimming, and motorcycles. Recent guests in the salon have told us that “the massage with Jeremy was excellent” and “Jeremy was very informative and made me feel really comfortable.”

 

Take time to relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. Erik of Norway massages are tailored to meet your individual needs- whether you are looking for a deep tissue pressure or a light relaxing touch.

Glo Therapeutics Cytoluxe

Glo Therapeutics Cytoluxe

cytobefore&after

Last year at Erik of Norway, we celebrated the release of Glo’s Cyto-luxe line with a raffle in which the winner received the Cyto-luxe line to find out for themselves how great it is. Cindy was the lucky recipient and she graciously allowed us to take before and after photos. She gave us great feedback and says that the most noticeable difference is that the hyper pigmentation she previously had is so much better now, and overall her skin is brighter, as you can see from the before and after pictures! Cindy’s favorite product is the Cyto-luxe Eye Cream, which she believes has helped her fine lines. She is also a fan of the Cyto-luxe Face Cream for improving her overall complexion. Cindy uses other products in the Glo Therapeutics line including the Ultra Vitamin C 15%  and Advanced B5 Hydration (which helps stabilize hydration levels and gives softer, smoother skin).
Our esthetician Nicole has been performing facials on Cindy for the past 6 years. Nicole has watched her skin improve over time and says “It was fun to watch Cindy go through her Cyto-luxe routine and see the changes and discover her favorite Glo products. Cindy did not have a ton of concerns regarding her fine lines and signs of aging, but prevention is key. She has definitely experienced softening of her skin around the eyes and mouth and her skin tone is now even. She has been using our Glo line for the past year and half and has been very good with her at home care, so it was easy for her to pick up the Cyto-luxe line and follow the routine. Throughout this extremely dry Wisconsin winter Cindy’s skin has stayed hydrated, which is a first. I am so happy that she loves the products and is enjoying the benefits from using the Glo skincare line.”

The list of Glo products that Cindy has experienced  include the following:

  • Cyto-luxe Mask– An intense, rejuvenating facial mask that utilizes plant stem cells to help skin regain elasticity and plumpness. Refreshed skin looks lifted and lustrous.
  • Cyto-luxe Serum– Smooths the appearance of wrinkles by promoting collagen, supporting the skin and softening expression lines
  • Cyto-luxe Face Cream– Improves aged skin with the ultimate combination of advanced ingredients. increases production of collagen and hyaluronic acid to counteract the effects of time
  • Cyto-luxe Face Essence– conditions and nourishes the skin. powerful yet lightweight, the luxurious treatment promotes detoxification and helps the skin build a defense system against environmental toxins.
  • Cyto-luxe Eye Cream– Restructures aging skin by increasing collagen and elastin. This all-in-one eye cream targets expression lines and reduces cutaneous dryness.
  • Ultra Vitamin C 15%– Dramatically transforms skin with cutting edge blend of peptides and antioxidants that provides complete protection by repairing and strengthening skin cells and their functions- ( amazing for fine lines and hyper pigmentation)

Thank you!!

Thank you to everyone that participated in our first annual “Cut It Out” event on November 13th! The money we raised will benefit the Azana Victims Fund. We met our goal and were so excited to be able to help such an amazing cause. Thank you to everyone that stopped in to purchase a purple bracelet, gift cards and/or products last week, it means so much!

Did someone say “vacation”?!

Many of our guests will be traveling in the coming weeks. Did you know that we carry many of your favorite products in the perfect travel size? (These do meet airline requirements!)

This includes Aveda as well as Kerastase. Stop into Erik of Norway see our full selection. There are a few products in travel sizes that are Holiday exclusives, and we get limited quantities so get ’em while they’re here! These small sizes make fabulous stocking stuffers.

In Memoriam: Azana Salon Victims

On October 21st we were greatly saddened to learn that a former Erik of Norway colleague was murdered along with two of her co-workers at Azana Salon, in addition to four others that were  injured. Zina Haughton is best described by EON employees as a fabulous stylist, caring friend, and wonderful mother. To show our support to Zina’s family and the Azana Salon Victims, we are partnering with ‘Cut It Out- Salons Against Domestic Abuse’, along with 80 other local salons, to help raise money for the Azana Victims Fund. On Tuesday, November 13th we will donate 10% of all retail sales, 10% of all gift card purchases, and a portion of services to the Azana Victims Fund. Please participate in this event at Erik of Norway Salon in Mequon and together we can make a difference! We also have purple ‘Domestic Violence Awareness’ bracelets to show your support- available while supplies last. Thank you to all those that have already purchased one, your donation is much appreciated!

If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, we urge you to seek help immediately!

Halloween!

“Halloween is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.” For a more detailed history of Halloween, visit http://www.History.com/topics/halloween

Do you need a last minute Halloween costume? Here are a few fast and easy ideas to get you started!

Where’s Waldo! A red and white shirt with jeans is a must! Don’t forget to wear your camera around your neck, and make it a point to get in the background when others are taking pictures at the Halloween party!

How cute is this little guy from the movie “Up”? A cardigan, bowtie, glasses and a few balloons are all you need! This costume could work for a guy too!

A zombie is a simply scary costume! Take any old outfit, get it nice and shredded and dirty and then use some makeup to make yourself a member of the undead!

Remember those hilarious school pictures back in the day? Relive those days with this creative costume. She used poster board and printed the background on computer sheets of paper! Clever!

To be “Little Red Riding Hood” all you need is a red hood and picnic basket! Cute and easy.

Did you ever wish you could be on The Price Is Right? This costume does not require too many supplies and is sure to make people smile.

Medusa has snakes in her hair and pretty makeup. Put on a flowy white dress and you have yourself a great costume.

Chances are, you already have everything in your closet to dress up as a hippie! If not, hit up a thrift store for the goods.

This costume will take a bit more time than slipping on something bought at a store, but it is way more creative!

Cute couple idea: dress as burglars!
