Making the Most of Your Spa Day

spa dayA day of spa treatments at the spa should be relaxing and refreshing.  However, if you lack experience at the spa, you may be nervous or anxious about spa etiquette or how your day will go.  Not knowing what to expect can defeat the purpose of receiving a spa treatment.  Understanding a few simple points can help your experience at the spa be all it is supposed to be and more.  Knowing what to expect will relax you and help you to be able to enjoy your day more.

Scheduling an Appointment at the spa

Prior to scheduling an appointment at the spa, it is important to do some homework.  Take some time to research spas in your area and what they offer.  Research what types of treatments are available and their benefits.  Think about what treatments you might find the most beneficial and relaxing.  Generally, day spas offer treatments such as massages, nail treatments, and facials.  There are also specialty spas like medi spas that offer additional cosmetic services like Botox injections, anti-aging skin treatments, and laser procedures.  These types of spas require a doctor on staff.

Thanks to modern technology, most spas now have websites where you can do your research in a short amount of time.  Many spas have websites with plenty of information on which treatments they offer, benefits, prices, and spa etiquette, such as how much to tip and what to wear.  Taking a few minutes to review a spas website will help you make the right decisions for you and to know what to expect during your spa visit.

Ask Questions about Spa Treatments

If the spa does not have a website, or their website does not offer enough information, do not be afraid to ask questions.  Call to inquire about what is on your mind, and even consider visiting the spa prior to booking your appointment.  It is better to have your questions answered before your spa day so you can put your mind at ease, relax, and enjoy your services.

Come Early

Make sure you arrive early to your spa appointment.  Being rushed will only serve to make you more anxious and not feeling relaxed prior to and during your treatment.  There may be paperwork to fill out if you are new to the spa that will require some extra time to fill out.  Often time spas are very booked and being late to an appointment can shorten your treatment or even create a need to reschedule your treatment.

Find a Chauffer

Driving can be stressful, especially in rush hour traffic, bad roads, and construction.  Increase your relaxation by hiring a driver or finding someone to drive you to and from your spa appointment.  This will extend the benefits of your treatment beyond your appointment time and make it more worth your money.
