Every public place has certain manners that a polite person must adhere to and spas are no different. Going to a spa for a day can be a luxurious treat for someone. By adhering to the right manners and using a little sensitivity, it can be a great experience for everyone involved. Here are some do’s and don’ts for courtesy:
– Make appointments ahead of time: Walk-in appointments can be allowed at some places, but having knowledge of pre-scheduled clients will allow staff to be well prepared for each customer.
– Be prompt: Delay on the customer will cause each client to go down the line for short. One person being late causes a domino effect of tardiness. Punctuality shows respect to staff and all customers who follow.
– Cancel properly in advance if necessary: Sometimes the appointment has to be canceled or rescheduled but twenty-four hours should be the minimum time allowed for this. Many spas have policies that state that charges are still due to late cancellation. Check the policies in your location.
– Turn off the cell phone: The phone must be left at home or in the off position. A calm atmosphere is desired by all and a ringing telephone or a conversation overheard by the customer will be a nuisance.
– Your practitioner’s tip: A tip should be included for every technician who has provided exemplary service. Mass owners, aesthetics, and other staff members are invaluable to well-being and should be rewarded with tips.
– Bring food to the facility: Eat before or after your treatment. No one wants to smell the drifting aroma of burgers and fries while they relax in their massage.
– Forget drinking water: Drinking adequate water after massage is essential to re-hydrate and wash out toxins. Bring your own water bottle or say yes to their liquid offering.
– Speak aloud: Speaking in a booming voice should be submitted to sporting events. A calm, still voice is a way to contribute to a peaceful environment.
– Bring your kids: A day at the spa is an indulgent treat. Children are wonderful but this is not an opportunity to bring them together. They will become bored, rambunctious and annoy you and others.
– Bring your pet: We know you love your little pup on his classy carrier, but not everyone feels the same way. Many people have allergies to dogs and shouldn’t be a target for one as long as they indulge themselves. Additionally, Roverina prefers to be at home playing with her favorite rawhide bones.
– Be fussy: Be kind and the world will respond in the same way to you. If there is a problem, treat it in a sensitive and polite manner. Harassing staff will ruin everyone’s experience.
– Come to your appointment sick: If someone has an infectious disease, they should stay at home. This is better for their own immune system and won’t spread malady to other customers and technicians.
Follow some manners and use a little sensitivity. Everyone at the spa, including you, will be glad you did.
