Communicate During Your Session
Communication is key in most areas of life, and this is also true when it comes to getting the most out of your spa day massage.
Are the lights too bright? Is the room too cold? Pressure not enough? Speak up! You may feel like a bossy ingrate at first, but trust us, your masseuse will appreciate the feedback.
Also, before your massage service begins, let your therapist know if you’re feeling particularly stressed or sore in a certain spot so they can focus their attention on those trouble areas.
Skip the Pre-Spa Burger and Fries
Nothing’s worse than feeling bloated or gassy right before you’re about to get a deep tissue massage. So, avoid discomfort or (god forbid) an embarrassing bodily function mishap by eating a light meal before your spa day.
It’s also a good idea to check if your spa day includes any food, especially if you have a full day of pampering in front of you. Feeling hangry will take away from the relaxing experience, which is the whole point!
Choose Spa Day Companions Wisely
At Awe Spa®, you have your pick of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments that are perfect for two, but think long and hard before you invite just anyone along to your spa day.
While a relaxing day getting pampered may be perfect for you and your lifelong bestie, inviting a co-worker or (yikes!) your mother-in-law, may result in more stress and less relaxation.
This is your vacation and you deserve a little R&R, darn it! So, make sure whomever you bring along vibes with you and your idea of unwinding. And when in doubt, opt for a spa day for one – it’ll be better than having a Debbie downer along for the ride.
Leave Everything at the Door
One of the most important tips for making the most of your spa day is to relax! You can indulge in every spa treatment known to man but if your mind is racing throughout, there’s a good chance you won’t be able to reap the rewards.
When you step into your appointment, make a conscious decision to leave everything on your mind at the door and enter the spa with calmness and clarity. Your treatment is not the time to address your thoughts or worries, because after all, your mind needs to relax as much as your body does.
