Spa Etiquette

Never been to a spa? Not sure of tipping procedures or what to expect? Here are some common questions and answers that might help. If you don’t see your question here, call me at 937-367-9261.

 

"What do I need to do the first time I visit?"

1.Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.

2. Many of my services require consultation.

3. I will also ask you for a basic medical history such as allergies and contact information.

 

"How early should I make my next appointment?"

Spa treatments are popular and my calendar fills up fast. If you have a specific need for a specific date, please schedule your appointment well in advance. I will always try to accommodate your last minute needs, but encourage pre-scheduling. You may also request a courtesy call should a desired day and time come available.

 

"What if I am running late?"

Please note that your late arrival will determine the length of your treatment. Your service will end on time so that the next guest is not delayed. If you are more than 15 minutes late, your appointment will be rescheduled.
 

What if I need to cancel my appointment?"

If you need to cancel your appointment, please call at least 24 hours in advance to avoid fees.

 

"How much privacy can I expect? Do I disrobe completely for my spa treatment?

Your treatments are always delivered in a private room. I want you to feel relaxed and at ease, as undergarments are required during treatments.
 

"Is there anything I should or shouldn’t do before coming to the Spa?"

Try not to eat for at least an hour before a treatment, and drink plenty of water before and afterward.
 

"Should I tell someone if I have any special physical conditions or allergies?"

Yes, please inform me if you have any special needs. I will be happy to accommodate you in any way I can so you will have a pleasant experience. If you are pregnant, have a heart condition, or have high blood pressure, services that include application of heat are not recommended. Please consult your physician first.

Please also let me know if you are wearing contact lenses when you have an appointment for a facial.
 

May I ask you to make adjustments for my comfort?

Absolutely. This is your treatment, and I want you to enjoy the experience. If you would like the music volume raised or lowered, or a change in the amount of pressure during your massage, for example, please let me know. Your comfort and care is of the greatest concern and priority.
 

"Do I have to talk or do anything in particular during a treatment?"

There’s no pressure to talk during a treatment as I prefer you take full advantage of your spa escape. I recommend consulting with me just before your treatment begins so you can close your eyes and truly gain the spa experience!
 

"How can I pay for services?" 

I accept the following forms of payment: gift cards, cash, local check (with photo ID), Visa and MasterCard credit cards, and bank debit cards.  Payment is expected at the time of service.
 

"Is it customary to tip for spa services? And if so, how much?"

Gratuities are welcomed. While tipping is certainly not required, it is appreciated and shows a direct reflection of your view of the service you received. The customary gratuity for spa services is 18% to 20% of the cost of the service.
 

"Are certain services just for men or women?"

Most spa treatments are appropriate for either sex, but certain services do appeal to men or women.
 

"At what age is it appropriate for teenage children to start having waxing and beauty treatments?"

A child is never too young to learn good grooming and healthy habits. More and more teens are enjoying spa treatments, as several services offer solutions to specific teen concerns such as acne and makeup.
 

How often should I have a facial?

I recommend regular, monthly facials for optimum skin maintenance and nourishment; twice monthly for specific treatment programs and to counteract the effects of daily stress.
 

"What are the Spa’s hours of operation?" 

I am open for appointments 5 days a week.
Closed on Sunday, Thursday. By Appt. Only: Monday-Wednesday, Friday-Saturday

Closed on Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year's Eve and New Year’s Day.
 

"Aren’t spa’s really just for ‘young and beautiful’ people?"

Everyone will find spa services to be a welcoming haven no matter what his or her age, shape or size. In fact, the average age of my guests ranges from the 30s to the 50s, and higher.
 

Aren’t the services expensive?"

That depends on your perspective. Many of my treatments are preventative or soothing in nature, and offer benefits to improve your health and well-being . The investment in your health, spirit and well-being is priceless!
