Many people visit spas to find balance, take time for themselves and relax. A visit to the spa is not a luxury anymore. Today’s spas are sources for healthy living and overall well-being. Follow these tips to get the most out of your spa visit.
First, always arrive early to allow time for questions and concerns, and to enjoy the facility. In addition, you don’t want someone else’s tardiness to delay your treatment so be sure to offer the same courtesy.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Your spa team is available to help you relax and feel comfortable. If you don’t understand the purpose of a specific treatment, ask. Your therapist will be happy to address any questions or concerns you may have.
If you have allergies or other health issues, inform your therapist. The spa requests that you complete an intake form where you will have the opportunity to document this information.
After your treatment, discuss issues related to your treatment, products used, or future treatments. Your therapist is there to answer questions and offer recommendations to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
If you receive a massage, drink plenty of water afterwards. During a massage, toxins are released within the body. Water helps flush these toxins so you can look and feel your best. Also, take home a good exfoliator and moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.
If possible, refrain from showering for several hours after your treatment. This allows your body to properly absorb the excess treatment products, lotions and oils used at the spa.
Don’t forget to schedule your next appointment before you leave so you can visit the spa when it’s most convenient for you.
And, finally, sit back, relax, and enjoy! Your spa experience is an investment in YOU. You should always leave feeling and looking better!
