Top 5 Tips for Your First Day Spa Visit

June 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 165

Today, many people visit day spas as a way to relax from life's day-to-day stresses and strains, or to indulge in a little pampering so you can feel revived and revitalised once again. If, like some people, you are considering a visit to a day spa for the very first time, here are some helpful tips and things to consider before your special day.

Do your homework first

Do some research before you book into your chosen day spa. Check the spa company's website and look at independent websites for advice and recommendations on treatments you are considering. Also check with your doctor if there are any health issues you might have to consider, to make sure a particular treatment does not pose any threat to you health. Also make sure you advise the day spa representative or the spa treatment practitioner of any health issues or allergies you might have on arrival.

Have a realistic expectation of the treatments

Try not to be unrealistic when considering spa treatments or believe the sales hype when considering a spa and the treatments on offer. In reality, the primary function of a spa is to leave you feeling relaxed, revitalised, pampered and enjoying a feeling of calm.

Know your Spa etiquette

The biggest no-no has got to be not turning off your mobile phone, so don't be caught out as its only fair as everyone else at the day spa will want peace and tranquillity during their spa treatments. Make sure you arrive on time, 10 or 15 minutes early is better than being late, plus if you are rushing you will feel stressed on arrival. Respect the no talking rule, but where necessary you'll most likely have to discuss a treatment beforehand with a therapist.

Try some taster treatments

Many spas offer taster treatment sessions. These are a good way to discover new or alternative therapies or see if you and your body will act favourably to a particular treatment. The taster treatments are usually a shorter version of a full treatment, so you can save money with these, just in case a particular treatment isn't for you.

Invite a friend or relative and save money

To help ease yourself into to the experience of a day spa, why not take along a friend or a loved one to share the spa day experience and the cost? Some day spas now offer reduced pricing for couples and groups, so this might also quell any first time nerves and make the overall experience be even more enjoyable.
