Spa etiquettes

For new spa goers, spa etiquette is a source of concern, but once you are familiar with a few basics it is easy.

No mobiles

At the spa you need to switch off your mobile phone. Many spas don’t allow mobile phone. Actually, you may feel the urge to check emails, text, answer calls, which cannot make you, feel relaxed. The whole aim of spa day is to relax mind and body. It can even disturb other people enjoying massage on the table next to you. It is fine if you check emails or text, while enjoying a pedicure, but conversation is a big NO.

Never be late

Basically, in day spa facility without amenities like robes, locker room, sauna, and steam arrive 15 minutes early. Only few minutes are needed to fill the form, the first time. There is no need to arrive very early if you just need to enter the treatment room and wear a robe. Never rush for a massage, give yourself sufficient time to reach there. Get there a little early and feel relaxed rather than getting delayed and miss a section of your treatment.

If you make an appointment at large, upscale resort or destination spa then arrive half an hour early. You too can get relaxed in amenities available like hot tub or steam room. You can get relaxed prior massage session. You can even use the shower in the locker room to freshen prior treatment.

Speak your desires.

While making appointment, you can ask for female or male masseuse. During massage don’t hesitate to ask for more or less pressure, quiet music, and turn off table warmer, etc. Remember, your personal comfort is crucial.

Tips

It depends on spa. Many add to service fee. In general, you can give 15% to 20% for their good services.

Cancellation
