Getting a spa treatment is one of the most relaxing ways to de-stress, unwind or just indulge yourself and your body. But do you know the proper etiquette when in the spa?
Rule 1: Keep your phone silent
No one wants to be that girl whose phone goes off during a relaxing and soothing massage. It’s supposed to be your unwinding time, so keep your phones quiet (or off, if you’re one of the brave ones) and enjoy it!
Rule 2: Communicate
Before you lay face down and semi-naked on that massage table, it’s important to let the spa service know your preferences. This will help guide your esthetician, and you’re more likely to have a satisfying experience and go home happy.
Rule 3: Tip smartly
The spa may have its own policies on tipping, but a standard tip is about 15% of the cost of your services. Ensure you are not coerced into giving more than you should or want to.
Rule 4: Don’t come in ill
You’re more likely to spread the germs or bug around, as you will be in close proximity with the estheticians and fellow spa-goers. You might want that mud bath badly, but be considerate!
