ULTIMATE GUIDE FOR PLANNING YOUR NEXT SPA GETAWAY + PACKING LIST 👸🏻

SPA ETIQUETTE:

FROM WHAT TO WEAR TO GOING BARE

I. WHAT TO EXPECT

  • ALWAYS BE SURE TO ARRIVE AT LEAST 15 MINUTES EARLY. TO CHECK IN AND GET SETTLED. TYPICALLY, YOUR ATTENDANT WILL GIVE YOU A BRIEF TOUR OF THE SPA AND AMENITIES AVAILABLE TO USE BEFORE OR AFTER TREATMENT.
  • TIPPING YOUR MASSEUSE – IF GRATUITY IS NOT ALREADY INCLUDED IN PRICING, SAVE YOUR TIP FOR THE END. IF YOU ARE UNSURE, 20% IS A SAFE AMOUNT.
  • WHEN GETTING A MASSAGE, ALWAYS GO NUDE
  • BE QUIET! SPAS ARE A PLACE TO RELAX AND GET AWAY FOR A LITTLE BIT, SO BE RESPECTFUL YOUR SURROUNDINGS. PHONES ARE NOT BANNED, BUT BE MINDFUL OF OTHERS AROUND YOU WHO MIGHT BE NUDE SO BE CAREFUL WITH SELFIES!
  • SPA ATTIRE IS RELAXED, BUT ALWAYS ASK DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF SPA (DAY SPA, RESORT SPA, ETC). IF IT IS NOT OBVIOUS, GENERAL HYGIENE AND PERSONAL CARE ARE IMPORTANT ESPECIALLY IF SOMEONE IS GOING TO BE GIVING YOU A MASSAGE.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG, IS TO EMPOWER AND INSPIRE INDIVIDUALS TO PURSUE THIER PASSION DAILY AND STRIVE TO BE THE BEST VERSION OF THEMSELVES. AS AN ADVOCATE FOR WOMEN, IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT BEAUTY IS NOT ONLY ABOUT VANITY AND EXTERNAL APPEARANCE, AND TO EMBRACE BEING EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL WITHIN, BEING A “TRIPLE THREAT.” ONE WHO DISPLAYS ACTS OF KINDNESS, WELL VERSED AND EDUCATED, INDEPENDENT, EXUDING CONFIDENCE AND A HIGH SENSE OF SELF, IN ADDITION TO BEING GORGEOUS ALONG WITH AMBITION AND INTEGRITY IN THEMSELVES. I HOPE TO EMPOWER OTHERS TO ACHIEVE TRUE CONFIDENCE AND SUCCESS. NOW, TYPICALLY, I WOULD NOT TAKE ON SUCH A CHALLENGE, UNLESS I WAS HUMBLED BY LIFE WITH ONLY 2 CHOICES; SINK OR SWIM. NEVERTHELESS, I AM HERE TO LET YOU KNOW, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR LIFE TO HAPPEN TO BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELVES. WORK IT BECAUSE YOU’RE WORTH IT!! “DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THE WAYS OF THIS WORLD, BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND.”
