The power of touchless

Spa and wellness innovator, Sammy Gharieni, reveals how his on-trend products are perfect for delivering high-value touchless treatments


Even before the pandemic, one of the biggest challenges facing wellness operators was finding therapists with the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure consistent quality of treatments.

Now, with new touchless technology from Gharieni, it’s possible to offer a high standard of treatments at all times, with the added benefit of these being COVID-19 compliant.

While therapists must be fully available for clients during normal treatments, touchless technology reduces service time, so several clients can be served by one therapist at once, according to CEO and founder of Gharieni Group, Sammy Gharieni, who believes touchless has huge potential to drive the success of spa and wellness businesses.

“Specialised touchless treatments allow spas to offer exceptional experiences while still delivering on strict hygiene regulations,” he says, “Touchless maximises the experience for the guest and the profit for the spa.

Developing a hybrid model
“Another great opportunity is combining touchless applications with traditional treatments, such as facials, pedicures and manicures,” he explains. “This allows operators to develop their own protocols, add more interesting treatments to the menu and differentiate themselves from other operators. It also increases earnings per hour.

“If we understand a spa visit as a holistic wellness experience,” says Gharieni, “there are not many differences in service between a hands-on treatment and a touchless treatment – guests can still be pampered and enjoy their spa time, it’s just the treatment that’s different.

“The quality of the treatment is not worse – to the contrary, all our touchless technologies are made of the highest quality materials and deliver consistently high-quality treatments,” he says.

Smart add-ons
“Our philosophy has always been to integrate technologies that relieve therapists and turn simple treatments into an experience, through smart add-ons,” he says. “Many of our innovations can be used on a touchless basis or in conjunction with an intervention from a therapist, or both.

“For example, you can combine a manicure or pedicure with lying on the Spa.Wave System, or if the MLX i³Dome is used as a pure Infrared treatment without the PLT device on the head section, it can be combined with a facial.

“The PLT device can be used as a stand-alone (even without the iDome) on any spa table and can be combined with treatments for the legs or upper body.

“The possibilities are endless,” says Gharieni, “and give each spa the scope to develop their own signature treatments to make their spa menu more interesting and raise their earnings per hour.”

Next generation products
Sammy Gharieni
The Gharieni product line contains a number of key pieces of equipment which can be used individually, or in combination, to add touchless treatments to your spa menu. See below for details:
The Gharieni Spa.Wave

The Gharieni Spa.Wave is a computer-controlled acoustic and vibrational therapy that trains the brain to relax and benefit from deep relaxation techniques.

Using specific vibrations and binaural audio frequencies, the Spa.Wave System makes it possible for even the busiest minds to achieve deep levels of relaxation in a 30 or 60 minute therapy session while lying on a heated water cushion.

During the treatment, built-in transducers act on the body through gentle vibrations, while binaural sound compositions slow the brain waves via stereo headphones.

After a treatment the client feels relaxed and the body clock is adjusted.

Triple Detox Therapy MLX i³Dome

The award-winning, Triple Detox Therapy MLX i³Dome combines Far Infrared Technology (FIR), with plasma and light, to offer three ultra-effective detox treatment methods in one.

Once the client is safely seated, the dome is closed and the PLT device is positioned over the head. From that point, the MLX i³Dome operates completely independently.

While Gharieni FIR-technology stimulates and warms the body with long-wave infrared rays through the MLX iDome, the additional Plasma- and Light-Therapy device (PLT) at the head section provides visible skin rejuvenation and detoxification after only one session.

ROI: 2x60m (€50) + 1x30m (€30) a day

Payback time: 8.2 months

The MLX Quartz

The MLX Quartz treatment bed can also be offered as a touchless treatment.

In addition to the optional scent diffuser, which activates the olfactory senses, the dynamic flow system offered as an option on the MLX Quartz is a real alternative to full-touch treatments.

The system simulates a massage with wave-like movements in the back area. The client is cocooned in warm quartz and cosy linen and enjoys the gentle massage without the touch of a therapist.

Gharieni CELLISS

CELLISS is a unique slimming machine based on the patented Total Slimming System (TSS), a non-invasive aspiration/percussion process that simultaneously treats thighs and hips, as well as buttocks or abdominals, depending on the prone position.

After the client is lying comfortably on the Gharieni CELLISS, individual programmes can be started at the touch of a button, with each one customised to the client’s needs – once the treatment is underway, it does not require any further intervention from therapists.

The Gharieni CELLISS helps to reduce the orange-peel effect, while slimming and shaping thighs, redesigning the silhouette and smoothing the skin’s texture.

ROI: 6 x CELLISS treatments per day @ €50 = monthly revenue of €9,000

Payback time: 4.9 months
