FAQs: What do I need to know before scheduling and going to my appointment?

1) Should I eat something before my appointment? Yes, a light meal will keep you from passing out, but you don’t want to be too full. Avoid rich foods and high caloric meals.
2) Can I have a few drinks before my spa service? Definitely don’t get your booze on before the spa, one drink is ok, but not more than that. For one thing, you’ll get too dehydrated, and you probably won’t fully appreciate the experience since alcohol drains energy. Stick with water, but not so much that you keep running to the bathroom.
3) Do I need to buy the products my technician recommends? No, but the technician has analyzed your skin and is a professional, knows what products are best for you or not. Spas use professional products that are tailored to the specific needs of the individual clients. You are going to use products anyway, so why not use the best products recommended by someone that is in the know about it? Experimenting on your own at times can by pricier and dangerous.
4) How much should I tip? Tipping is at your discretion, it is not mandatory but it is always appreciated especially if you have received exceptional service. An appropriate tip is 20 percent of the full service price, even if you bought the treatment at a discount.
5) Do I need to shower before my service? Yes. No offense, but yes, as a common courtesy. Just a quick rinse so you don’t smell. Pay special attention to your feet. Just don’t overly cleanse, the therapist wants to see your real skin so will know what to work with.
6) Can I use the bathroom during treatment? Yes, but it’s inconvenient for both you and the therapist to stop. Imagine if you are doing a body wrap and have to get out of the cocoon and than get back into a new one. Make sure you take care of business beforehand.
7) Should I take everything off? Yes, as long as you’re comfortable doing that. Some people do leave undergarments on, but it could get greasy from the oils, and it all depends on the service you are getting. If you prefer to focus more on the back muscles, or if you are doing a back scrub or back mud mask not only undergarments get in the way but don't allow the therapist to fully work the area depriving you of the full benefits of the treatment. You’ll also need to take off any and all jewelry, tie you hair so the therapist doesn't have to struggle trying to not get oil on it or pulling it.
8) Do I keep my eyes open? Please don’t. You could get products in your eyes. Plus, keeping them closed relaxes the muscles in your head.
9) Is there anything I should tell my therapist before the service starts? For your safety, let your technicians know about any injuries or medical issues, especially circulatory problems like a blood clot and if pregnant. Also notify them if you have any type of implants, suffer from seizures, allergies to products/ingredients.
10) Should I shave before coming to my appointment? This depends on the type of spa treatment you’ll be receiving. If you are receiving a massage there is no harm in having smooth legs for your spa day. However, if you are receiving a body scrub, it is best not to shave right before your appointment as your skin could become irritated. For guys getting a facial, shave the night before, so your skin is less sensitive.A: If you are a first time customer, please arrive a little before your scheduled service to fill out necessary paperwork for waxing, massage or facial services, if you are a repeat client you will update the form prior to receiving your service. Persons age 17 and under who receive closed door spa treatments must have a parent or an adult in the room for the duration of the service or a signed consent of approval.

FAQs: When shouldn't I receive a massage?

A: Remember that massage is contraindicated if you are running a fever, currently fighting or recovering from an infection, virus, illness, or in your first trimester of pregnancy. Be sure to mention if you are suffering from any injuries, skin conditions, allergies or untreated high blood pressure before scheduling. If you are currently under medical care, please consult with your doctor before receiving therapeutic services. Severe conditions may require a written release.

 

FAQs: What should I know before a body treatment or a scrub?

A: If you are receiving a body wrap or body scrub, do not shave or wax at least 8 hours prior to treatment. For body treatments you will be asked to undress to your comfort level . Your therapist will keep your body draped with sheets during the treatment and only expose the areas being worked on. With treatments such as body wraps, you will be draped with hand towels. If you wish swimsuits may be worn, or undergarments may be kept on, for your convenience disposable ones will be provided.

SPA ETIQUETTE RESERVATIONS: To ensure that you obtain your desired appointments and availability, we recommend scheduling as far in advance as possible.

Cellulite Boot Camp Treatment Program
Cellulite is bulging fat cells and other coexisting factors that result in the appearance of bumpy looking fat on the body. It is not an actual disease, but a condition. Sometimes the fat cells expand so much that they cause the collagen fibers around them to bend causing puckering of the skin above. It is located in the layer of fat closest to the skin, and does not respond well to diet or exercise. As you age, your skin thins and the presence of cellulite is more visible. The fat cells squeeze on the connective tissues and there is little room for the lymphatic drainage system to relieve this build-up of fluids, fats, and toxins. If your cellulite is loose, in large areas, and a bit wobbly, it is called soft cellulite, being the most common type, and luckily it is easier to get rid of. It makes you look like you have poor muscle tone even though you have been working out ferociously. Hard cellulite is more common in muscular, solidly built women. It has a stronger attachment to the muscles. It too can be treated, however it may take more treatments. Cellulite can be unsightly and embarrassing. This treatment uses a non-surgical non-invasive cosmetic technique that provides an array of aesthetic benefits. Utilizes a technology called microcurrent, whereby a low level of electricity is gently delivered to the treated area in order to trigger favorable chemical reactions at the skin's cellular level, much like the body's own natural electrical current. Microcurrent stimulates and strengthen the muscle tissue under the skin, helping your skin regain that plump and youthful look again. After series of treatments, a maintenance follow-up program is recommended to sustain the benefits you enjoy and achieve. The techniques include kneading, cupping, lymph drainage and vigorous massage strokes and manipulation to move toxins away from the tissues.IMPORTANT NOTE:If you are pregnant, have a history of heart problems, epilepsy, thrombosis, high blood pressure, asthma, diabetes, multiple sclerosis,implanted electrical devices,a pacemaker, or metal implants you should not receive Microcurrent treatments.
