Spa Etiquette : Think Ahead!

WHY YOU SHOULD SCHEDULE APPOINTMENTS AHEAD OF TIME/PRE-BOOKING:

1. Get What You Want

Scheduling in advance ensures you get the day/time that works best for you.

When you don’t pre-book, sometimes it can be hard to get the day and time you want. It’s a real drag to want a massage and have to rearrange other stuff or rush around just to make it happen. Plan ahead and you can always adjust if need be!

 

2. Prioritize Your Self-Care

Scheduling in advance gives priority to your self-care. Many of our clients have found that when they pre-book their next appointment(s), all the other pieces of their life settles around their self-care, instead of competing with their self-care.

 When we hold time for something, we tend to follow through. And when we don’t hold time for something, it tends to get lost in the shuffle. By prioritizing your self-care, you’re investing in your own well-being.

 

So why do we always ask if you want to rebook your next appointment when checking out? Because most of our clients have standing appointments every 4 to 6 weeks.  If you don’t think ahead at least 4 weeks, you will have a difficult time getting the day and time you prefer.  So book ahead and save yourself some frustration when calling to make your next appointment!

Spa Etiquette : Modesty Draping

Many clients, even those that have been getting massages for years, are unsure about how much they should disrobe for their massage. As with so many things, the answers vary.

 

The most important thing is for you to be comfortable and able to relax on your spa day. It’s also important to remember that no matter you how much you disrobe during a professional massage, you’ll always be draped with a sheet or towel so only the area being worked on is uncovered. You can also request that certain areas are avoided during massage.

 

Our therapists use a technique called modesty draping; this uses an additional sheet during the massage to protect your modesty. Modesty draping is used so that the client won’t be “exposed” during the a deep massage or a relaxing Swedish massage.

 

So relax, we’ll always have you covered!

 

Extra Tips:Thigh_Massage

Ladies – it’s best if you remove your bra. Occasionally massage oils and lotions can stain delicate fabric. It’s also more difficult to work the length of your neck muscles with bra straps in the way (many neck muscles attach to your shoulder blade or vertebrate in the mid-back).

 

Guys – if you want to leave your underwear on during a mens spa service, it’s better if you don’t wear the long boxer briefs that fit snugly around your upper leg. Those make it tough to fully work on your quadriceps, hamstrings, and other leg muscles. Briefs or traditional boxers are a better choice.

 

And remember, when in doubt – ASK!
