I hope everyone got to get out and enjoy all the local events that have been going on from the Du Quion State Fair, Blues Festival, the Apple Festival, and all the local Football. games. I feel like fall is Southern Illinois time to shine, particularly Murphysboro and its surrounding communities. And the fall fun doesn't stop there.., do you have your tickets to the Big Muddy Brew Festival; if not, click here to get in on some Craft Beer fun! I seriously have been slowly but surely convincing poor Chantelle to move from her quaint little wooded home in Carbondale to the down town Murphy, now... just to work on her fella :)
New Products & Upcoming Promotions
As you might have heard last August I took a trip to the beloved Face & Body Skin Expo to learn all the latest and greatest things that the skin care profession has to offer. This go around I found a few gems to implement into the Oasis Facial treatment rooms. More than likely you have experienced the awesomeness of the Gel Eye pads and neck treatments as well as the powerful firming and toning Peptides from the Victoria Deanne skin care line.
I was looking for a product that was water soluble meaning I could use it in the Toning & Tightening Microcurrent Facial Treatment that Lifts and Tones Skin and Facial Muscles. These products are light and absorb into the skin effortlessly. They have been seriously improving the results of this already amazing service. My favorite of the bunch so far is the Pepti- Eye product, it is an effective Eye Serum, not a cream. It is very light, has potent ingredients yet is still gentle. It also serves as a great lip plumper, In addition to using this in the Toning & Tightening Facials, I personally have been pairing it with the Osmosis Refresh Eye Cream at night and using the Pepti -Eye serum alone during the day and have been seeing wonderfully lifted more open eyes as well has softened lines. It has a great price point of $38, if you text us to pre-order this little gem, by 9/30 you will get 10% Off. Call or text at 618-207-4404 between now and 9/30 to reserve your Pepti-Eye serum with 10% Off.
I have another little treat that came out of the August visit to the Face & Body Expo, be on the look out for October newsletter that will include a fall protocol for correcting skin discoloration, pigmentation and melasma. That's right, I have a plan to help all my sun worshiping queens and my melasma surving sisters. Please stay tuned...

Growth and Change
We are constantly striving to be better servants to our crafts and to our clients. I always encourage Team Oasis to put thier needs first because that will ensure they are happy and healthy when they come into the office to serve you. Christine recently told me that she will be departing to allow better flexibility to help with her momma and focus on growing her pain management massage business. She is a talent and I am honored to have worked with her; at the end of October, she will be leaving us.
We are currently looking for a Licensed Massage Therapist and Licensed Esthetician (or Cosmetologist with Skin Care experience). This is not something we take lightly, at Oasis we are a well oiled machine and we have to have the right butts in the right seats for this all to move along with ease. We have always been blessed with an Amazing staff and I plan to continue that level of excellence. Although it might take a while for us to fill Christine's shoes and to find and train a Skin Therapist, I am willing to be patient to find the right fit for us and you. If you know of someone that is an amazing Licensed Massage Therapist that enjoys being creative with services and protocols and likes to leave work at work, please have them call or text us at 618-207-4404 for an interview.
That's it for this month my beautiful friends! Have a great month and brings on the sweaters and boots weather!!
As promised, we have nailed down an evening Yoga class time.
Kennedy is available to teach on Thursdays at 5:30pm. But before we put it in stone we wanted to ask your opinion.
Please complete the quick survey below :)
If we get great feed back on this time, we plan to start evening classes on Thursday October 3rd at 5:30pm
Hope your back to school season is going off without a hitch! There is nothing I love more than a freshly sharpened pencil. When I was little my momma didn't take me to the doll aisle as a reward she took me to the office supply aisle. Maybe it is my accounting background or just my type-A personality, but I am pretty sure I love school supply shopping way more the average bear. Seriously, Staples is like one of my favorite places...anyway. The summer at Oasis was full of joy, vacation and lessons learned. The joy of doing something I love and offering it to people in my community has yet to be matched. And the lesson that not everything works out... it sucks..., but I am really learning to go with my gut on the things that matter most and it has yet to fail me, so I guess that muscle is getting stronger ?!?. I hope you were able to check out my personal Instagram page to catch a rare glimpse of #vacationdavid dancing; if you need a good laugh please watch the video of him dancing with Abby (AKA #nugget) in Atlanta. It is like watching a live version of "How You think You look Vs. What you Actually Look Like".
I want to give a huge shout out to Ms. Martha Peebles and Ms. Joan Sherwood for being our Summer Yoga Instructors. They were absolutely amazing and we would love to have them back to teach anytime!! We have so much coming up in the next few months....not to mention Apple Festival is upon us. It is so weird how much I love the chaos in Murphysoboro that comes with this time of the year. Who is ready to put out some chairs? >>This Girl<<!
Here at the Oasis... Chantelle is kicking butt as Office Manager, Alex survived yet another Crimson Express Band Camp, and we are thrilled to welcome Ms. Kennedy back into the fold! Now that Kennedy is done saving the world one Touch of Nature hike at a time she will be back teaching in our little Zen Zone. Come join our Small Group Yoga sessions where you are encouraged to ask questions and learn in an accepting, calm and hands-one environment.
