Special Considerations before Visiting a Spa

December 21, 2021

Are there any special considerations I should be aware of before visiting a spa?

Visiting a spa is an excellent way to relax and unwind. It can be just the thing you need to restore your sense of well-being. Before setting off for a day or night at the spa, there are several considerations to keep in mind. Remember, visit a spa often for ultimate relaxation.

Consider the time:

Decide whether you’d prefer a day or night spa experience.

Day spas tend to have shorter hours than their nighttime counterparts and provide fewer services due to their size constraints.

Nighttime spas often offer more amenities such as pools and hot tubs but may require reservations far in advance. For couples, night spa visits are the most popular and romantic.

What packages or therapy sessions you are looking for?

Have a look at what types of treatments are offered at the spa so that you can decide what will best suit your needs during your visit.

Most spas offer massages and facials, but some also specialize in other types of treatments such as aromatherapy, hydrotherapy, body scrubs, mud baths, or wraps. It could enhance your relaxation experience even further.

We recommend booking any desired treatments or packages ahead of time, as peak times can be busy with limited availability on a walk-in basis only.

What to consider when it comes to your budget?

If the budget limits your opportunity, it’s always nice to take advantage of the packages that many spas offer.

Packages combine multiple treatments into one cost-saving bundle while allowing customers more time for relaxation.

Packages provide you with time between massages or treatments since they don’t have to wait in line continuously throughout their stay at the facility.

These bundles typically include access discounts on beverages, food items, retail products, etc.

Packages are more cost-saving than booking individual treatments, which is why it is so popular.

Another big thing to consider is your health

When you visit a spa, tell the therapist if you have any chronic illness like high blood pressure or if you are pregnant.

There are certain treatments and massages that have to be adjusted, to ensure that it does not affect your health or the well-being of your unborn child.

Your health is important to Bakwena Spa and you have to be truthful about your health issues. The therapists need to know upfront if there is something that they will have to do differently.

Or advise you which treatments or massages will be better.

Last thing to consider when choosing a spa

A spa should be neat, welcoming, and smell nice. It is the first thing you experience when you step into a spa.

Also, look for last minute deals as most spas do have this available from time-to-time.
