Would your business benefit from a CRM?

All right, your client just bought!

But are you just going to forget about him?

After your client has bought, comes a next step to the sale, the “post-sale”, which is handled by a customer service. With a proper process you can determine if your client has been satisfied with the purchase, and remind him or her of new product or service.

With a CRM, this process becomes very easy and precise, by helping us anticipate problems, as well as personalizing much better the customer support for your client.

Chelation therapy removes heavy metals from your body

Chelation therapy is an IV infusion therapy that helps rid your body of toxins. During therapy, I infuse a chemical called EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), which binds with toxic metals in your blood (mercury, copper, arsenic, aluminum) and removes them from your body.

Heavy metal poisoning occurs when the body’s soft tissues absorb toxic amounts of metal. Heavy metal poisoning is a common health problem due to industrial, agricultural, and sewage waste. It may also occur due to food consumption or certain medications.

Full body deep tissue massage – 90-minutes session

A deep tissue massage is a type of massage that aims to invigorate and heal a person’s muscles and connective tissue.

Deep tissue massage works on specific areas of muscle tension in the body. Stress, bad postures, or intensive physical activity can cause contracted muscles, and the best way to treat this is a good massage.

The main benefit of a deep tissue massage is that it can help relieve pain caused by stressed and strained muscles—the massage focus on targeting specific muscles and connective tissue.
