When a beach getaway is not an option yet all you want to do is relax and unwind, day spa is the next best option. If this is your first spa experience, a little preparation will help ensure that your visit will go as smoothly as possible. Doing so will help you avoid awkward moments of not knowing where to go, what to do next, or what to wear.
To help you plan your first spa visit, here are tips to keep in mind.
- Call the spa and ask questions
As a first-time spa visitor, I’m sure you have a lot of questions in mind. The easiest way to answer them is to call up your preferred spa and inquire. If you’re having a hard time selecting a spa, you can always call Grand Spa. They have a friendly team of staff who can answer all your questions about your first spa visit.
When you call them up to inquire or to make your booking, don’t hesitate to ask questions. Their staff members are trained to help make your visit hassle free and to make you feel relaxed. You can even list down your questions before you call so you wouldn’t miss any important details.
2. Show up earlier than your appointment
Be at the spa 15 minutes before your appointment so you have enough time to familiarize about the place. The staff can also give you a short introduction about the spa, the services they offer, and answer any additional questions you may have. Avoid being late as spas can cancel your appointment if you are late or they can also cut your treatment time short. This is especially true when the spa is fully booked and they have to accommodate another customer after you. So to make the most of your visit, be sure to show up earlier than your appointment.
- Communicate with their staff members
Remember that you are in a day spa because you want to relax and unwind. There’s no point taking a time off work and spending money just to feel uncomfortable during your spa visit. If the room is untidy, too hot, or too cold, inform the practitioner or staff member of the spa so they can do something about it. If you have a health issue or a certain trouble area, inform them so they can adjust the pressure of the treatment. This will help both you and the practitioner ensure that your visit goes as relaxing as possible.
- Dress appropriately
There’s no particular dress code for a spa visit but there sure is a right way to dress for your visit. First, you want to avoid avoid wearing any jewelry to a spa since you will be asked to remove it anyway before you begin with any treatment. Also, since you will feel relaxed after the treatment, be sure to wear comfortable clothing such as sweatpants and cotton top.
As for the towels and personal hygiene products, these are usually provided at spas so you no longer have to bring them. But if you are uncomfortable using their towels and products, you can always bring your own.
- Eat lightly before your spa visit
To avoid feeling heavy and full during your spa visit, be sure to eat lightly before your appointment. Depending on the service you will avail, you also want to stay hydrated before, during, and after the treatment.
