Gifting yourself or a loved one a spa treatment is wonderful. It’s the one place that you get pampered to your heart’s content. Think of a spa as a sanctuary of sorts. That’s the place where one can get manicures, pedicures, massages, facials and a whole lot more. It’s designed to give your body the royal treatment it deserves. It’s an escape from life’s stresses and tensions and your chance to let loose.
Regular spa treatments are a must. As much as you like to treat yourself to new gadgets, clothes, cosmetics and other material desires, your body deserves just as much. At the end of the day, you look good and feel good. It boosts overall confidence and self-esteem. It comes at a cost, but a little pampering is all your money’s worth. Regardless, you can always design your day at the spa according to your budget and needs. You may just want to use the spa for the steam, jacuzzi and other amenities and get a manicure and pedicure after. Otherwise, you may just be looking to get a full body massage. Either way, whatever you choose will be great for mind, body and soul.
A few things must be kept in mind before booking your spa appointment. Make sure to read reviews of places online and ask friends and family for recommendations. Once you’re settled n a spa, you can book your appointment. You may need to do a bit of homework for your spa day. You can either tell the concierge who booked your appointment on what you’d like to get done so she blocks the appropriate time slots for you. She or he will make sure the right therapist takes care of your needs. If you’ve been recommended a particular therapist, then you should tell the concierge beforehand.
You need to go to the spa stripped bare of all your stresses, tensions and worries. That’s the key to making the most out of your day. Wear loose clothing since you may need to undress a bit depending on what you’re getting done. You could perhaps take your own robe if you wish- make sure you ask the spa beforehand. Most spas will offer robes for you to wear during your time there. This will make you even more relaxed and free.
Prior to the start of your session, have a discussion with your therapist about your health history, any allergies and such so she or he is well aware and uses the right oils and lotions on you. Also discuss what spa treatments will be most beneficial for you unless you’ve already decided beforehand. You can always adjust the treatments based on what you and your therapist decide. She or he can advise based on your body, age, and health what works best for you. Rookie spa goers should try the Swedish massage if offered by the spa. It’s a delight.
Once you’ve gotten your massage, facial, manicure, pedicures and other treatments done, take the time to relax. The spa day is your day and your body’s been through quite a bit of pampering so it needs time to cool down too. You can relax in the jacuzzi if you wish but do ask the therapist prior to that. Perhaps, best to enjoy the amenities prior to treatments to relax your mind and body for the treatments.
The day spa is an excellent luxury for you and your body. Make sure to go regularly to get the most benefits out of it as the results will show over time!
