We all need a little pampering. Here are a few things to look for when choosing a spa.
Get recommendations. People you know can give you tips on where the best spas are-and which ones to avoid.
Check the costs. The cost for spa treatments varies widely depending on the spa. A simple manicure or facial can cost under £50 at one place, or hundreds at another.
Health or beauty? While the menu of treatments offered at health and beauty spas often overlaps, the focus at each is different. If you have a specific ailment, a health spa may be what you’re looking for. If you just want to relax, you may want to choose a beauty spa.
Ask about ingredients. If you have any allergies that might be a cause for concern, ask about the ingredients in the spa’s products-or tell them about your allergies beforehand.
Do they have a qualified staff? The staff at your spa should be fully licensed according to the laws in your state to practice. Check with the spa to see the resumes and qualifications of its staff.
It’s all about ambience. Take note of the decoration when you walk into a spa. It should make you feel like you’re in for something special the moment you walk through the door.
Look into treatments. Some spas have different treatments and specialties than others. Check out the menu of services or talk to the spa staff about the treatments offered, and make sure this spa has what you’re looking for.
It shouldn’t be hard to choose a spa. Ask for recommendations, do some research into the spas in your area, and don’t be afraid to ask questions before deciding.
