What to Look for in a Spa

Exercise, eating right, relaxation and good sleep are the keys to living at your maximum potential. Most of us already know this, but it can seem overwhelming to know where to begin. It all sounds fantastic and we want to live it. Experts say the key to making big changes is to start with something small, with one change at a time. Simply looking for a way to stay young forever, yoga classes and healthy diets are complex and easy to get off course with. A simpler plan is to consider a regular spa visit as your natural routine, and an hour a week is the perfect, simple place to start.

Read on to find out why.

Rejuvenate your beauty

The day spa concept is the natural blending of advanced skin care with the body and facial rejuvenation services in a relaxing atmosphere. Most spas offer services like massage, body treatments and facials. Massage, for example, is far more than an indulgence. It has numerous health benefits: calming the central nervous system; improving blood circulation and helping the body get rid of waste products. Regular massages can keep you feeling your best and improve the quality of your life. A comforting and safe atmosphere in which you can fully express specific needs and experience the amazing benefits of a therapeutic massage. Each session should be personalized to fit your needs and upon your request, incorporate music, aroma therapy and various massage choices such as Swedish, Deep Tissue and Tui


Because so much of “life” and exposure to the sun shows up on the face, a day of facial restoration can leave you looking and feeling beautiful again. Brow and face waxing can brighten your skin and eyes and take years off your

face. Add on a peel, shoulder massage, or hand exfoliation and you are on your way. Relax tight face and neck muscles so that you can continue on with your day feeling better than ever!

Relieve stress

We like to think of stress as what happens to others, without realizing how susceptible we may be ourselves, and how it might manifest on our face and body. Serious illness, death or divorce, are not the only challenges people face in life.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that mental disease, including stress and related disorders, will be the second-leading cause of disabilities by the year 2020 and that stress disabilities, which include impaired physical and mental functioning, lost work days and a high use of health care services, are as significant as workplace accidents and medical conditions. All spas are in the business of helping people relax; many now offer specific stress management programs.

Golden Rules

Professional technicians adhere to the culture we have created to make your spa experience a place of rejuvenation both physically and spiritually. Any spa you check out should follow these same, basic guide lines.

  1. Estheticians should ask about your home skin-care routine and offer suggestions but should not make you feel pressured to buying products. A comfortable and neutral environment is essential for you to fully take pleasure from your spa experience.
  2. Before you book a treatment, come in and take a tour to make sure you know the spa is clean, pleasant and sanitary and most of all that it gives you a feeling of comfort.
  3. Don’t be shy about asking to verify technicians’ certifications. A professional spa should have all licenses, insurances, and employ professionally certified workers.

Spas are the emerging trend and demonstrate a growing desire to rejuvenate one’s youth and sustain a healthy wellness lifestyle. As a large percentage of the population grows older, they begin to look for non-traditional ways to hold onto their youth—or at least the vitality they once had. Nevertheless, with Hollywood leading the pack with celebrities who support heath as a way of life, our youngest generation is also beginning to understand that taking care of their bodies today will slow down the aging clock of tomorrow.
