What is Spa Etiquette?

As a first time spa-goer, it can be a little nerve racking; especially if you do not know what exactly to expect. Here are a few tips on the do’s and don’ts of going to the spa and a little bit about what to expect.

Probably the biggest and most important thing to remember is to turn off the cell phone. It is rude to the employees to have it ringing and beeping every five minutes, and believe it or not; it is impossible to relax while checking text messages and emails. Turn the cell phone off or even leave it at home or in the car. If you absolutely must have something to occupy your mind, try bringing a book or magazine. A silent distraction is much more polite than one that is vibrating and beeping the whole time.

This next one is so obvious, but it is surprising how many people don’t do it: arrive on time for your spa appointment in Spring or Houston. In fact, be a little early. If you are rushing to get to your spa appointment, it is not likely that you will actually be relaxed, and isn’t that what a spa trip is all about? Try to arrive 15 or 20 minutes early in case you have to fill out paperwork or simply to get your mind intoa relaxed state. Rushing from the car to an appointment is going to be frustrating to the spa specialists and will make it impossible for you, as a client, to relax.

Spa Therapies to Match Your Individual Preferences

It’s important to talk openly with your massage therapist and our day spa staff. If you are uncomfortable with a male massage therapist, let the management know that you would prefer a female. This is not being rude, it is your right. The spa wants you to be relaxed, not nervous and uncomfortable during your whole treatment. Make sure to speak up about what you want during your massage as well. More or less pressure, lower, higher, louder or quieter music. The massage therapists want you to have a perfect, relaxing experience, so make sure to speak up!

Tipping is the last thing you will need to do before leaving the spa . Tipping 15-20% is common, but if you received superb spa treatment, tip extra. Even if the spa or resort included a service fee, it is still best to leave a tip, as not all of this fee goes to the employees.

All in all, just relax and enjoy the pampering treatment only a day spa can provide! After all, this is your precious time for enjoying a stress-free experience where you can escape and enjoy being taken care of!
