When you plan a vacation, you’re expecting serene days with no stress from work and an escape from routine life. And what can be a better way to unwind all the exhaustion than having a spa day on your vacation?
The lasting calmness of a massage melts away all the stress, and facial treatment is all it takes to revitalize you for the days ahead.
We think it’s time to plan your spa vacation and make the most out of it. However, you can do a few things before you visit the spa to get the most out of the spa experience.
Here are four tips to enhance your spa day experience:
Pre-Plan And Pre-Book
The best way to treat yourself is to have everything booked ahead of time. You are in the mood for some TLC on this vacation, and dealing with last-minute reservations and bookings can spoil that mood fast.
It can cause confusion and frustration; also, there’s a possibility you might end up doing something you didn’t want to.
So make sure you have the hotel, spa services, tours, and treatments booked before you ever get on the plane. Make sure that your chosen facility caters to COVID protocols because your safety is paramount.
Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For What You Want
Most people compromise on their comfort because they couldn’t communicate the things that were bothering them. Maybe the room is too cold, the lights are too bright, the pressure isn’t enough or too much, but the masseuse wouldn’t know until you speak up.
So, make sure that you communicate anything they can do to make you feel better, do not hold back because communication is the key element of massage therapy.
Try Something You Haven’t Done Before
If you regularly get spa services in your locale, try a little something different while on vacation. Indulge in exotic facials, hydrotherapy, seaweed treatments, ayurvedic massages, and enzyme baths, etc. While you’re on vacation, turn on your exploration mode.
Make Sure You’re Always Well Hydrated
If you’ve been a regular spa-goer, you know how important it is to be hydrated. If you don’t drink enough water, you might start feeling dizzy and sick. This will surely ruin your spa experience.
Especially if you’re opting for a massage or going to a sauna or steam room, you need to intake a good amount of water. Moreover, drinking water before and after your skincare treatment can maximize the treatment results and boost its effectiveness.
Savor the true joy of a spa vacation by truly relaxing and leaving all your worries back home. This is your me-time, so make it memorable and do all that you can for your mind, body, and soul to return home rejuvenated.
