No matter whether you are going for a manicure or pedicure, a facial, a full body massage or specialized and luxurious spa packages, a good spa should always leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and well taken cared of.
Here are some tips on how to choose a spa that is right for your needs:
1. Provides the service that you need
Do look at what are the services provided by a spa before scheduling an appointment. Give them a call or drop by to see what is available, or check online if they do have their services listed on their website.
Here are some services to look for:
– Manicure and pedicure
– Facial treatments
– Hydrotherapy, steam room or sauna
– Body wraps
– Therapeutic massage
– Laser hair removal
With so many different types to choose from, pick the one that suits your needs and budget.
2. Clean and relaxing environment
A clean and organised room with relaxing music is very important in enhancing the overall experience. And it is of utmost priority that a spa is sanitary and clean for the hygiene and health of all their guests.
It’s definitely a good idea to visit a spa before your scheduled appointment. Feel free to ask them about their safety and cleanliness practices, and don’t be shy to take a tour of the facility. Look out for good sanitation practices as well as courteous and professional staff. If you see something that doesn’t meet your standards or appears to be unsanitary, find a different spa.
A good spa will provide their guests with clean towels, bathrobes and sandals, and change any sheets after every guest.
3. Certified professional and qualified therapists
Ensure that a spa is licensed and that any medical or beauty therapies are performed by professional and qualified individuals. It is key that you are being serviced by trained and qualified therapists and aestheticians to ensure that procedures are correctly performed and that they are safe and enjoyable for guests.
4. Good customer service
Give the spa a call and gauge for yourself the quality of their customer service. Their willingness to answer your questions, the information they provide, and how they make you feel over the phone, all contributes to what you can expect when you visit the spa. You would want to look for courteous and pleasant staff who are willing to explain treatments, services and give you advice on how to choose the right one for your needs. Don’t be shy to tell them if you have not been to a spa before! Staff should be able to make you feel comfortable, guide you through the procedures, and explain how they do things.
5. Proper mindset – Having realistic expectations
Keep in mind that going to a spa (depending on your service) helps to relieve stress, relaxes the body and mind, as well as improves your health. Spas can help you to look your best, but do not expect to be wrinkle free and looking 10 years younger. It is important to understand this fact to prevent any frustrations or disappointments.
We hope this helps you choose a spa that is right for your needs. So get booking and enjoy yourself! You deserve it!
