How to prepare yourself for your first spa visit?

If you are looking at the perfect way to relax, consider a day-long spa day. Here are some tips on how to make the most out of your first spa visit.

Schedule treatments in advance – Book your appointment in advance and consider multiple treatments that will complement each other. Look at treatments that include a facial, massage and pedicure, which will help you take advantage of package discounts while enjoying multiple treatments in one visit.

Dress and pack appropriately – Garden Retreat Spa recommends not wearing jewelry to the spa as most often the therapist will ask you to take it off. It is best to bring your own personal hygiene products especially if you have sensitive skin. Remember to pack a bathing suit and comfortable clothing to relax after your visit.

Food and water – Consume a light meal before your spa day as a full stomach can make some people queasy during or after a massage. Ensure that you are hydrated before and after a massage as some spa treatments, like Korean massage NYC, use saunas and heat therapy that can cause excess sweating.

Tour and extras – Make sure you arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment to give you time to relax and take a tour of the facilities on offer. Arriving early will also mean that you can speak to your therapist and clarify any questions about your treatment before your session.
