At CGI Holistic Fitness, we’ve found that first-time spa visitors only have a general idea of what the typical client experience is at the spas in NJ. For this reason, we’re providing this primer on how most spas operate. Hopefully this allows you to maximize the enjoyment of your upcoming appointment!
1. Arrive Early: We recommend arriving 15-30 minutes before your scheduled appointment. Getting to the spa early will provide ample time to tour the spa facilities and get to know the various features onsite. Many spas have a pool, sauna and/or steam room, and other ways to pamper yourself prior to your appointment. They’re meant to be used…so take advantage of them!
2. Speak Up: When the time comes you’re your appointment it important that you tell your massage therapist about any pre-existing conditions that could negatively impact your enjoyment of your appointment. Trained spa attendants know to gather this information prior the treatment, but it’s always a good idea to thoroughly explain your physical history.
3. Mix It Up: Most spas in NJ have a wide variety of service offerings; your first time through you might want to test out a couple of different treatments. For example, instead of signing up for a 90 minute Swedish massage, you could sign up for a 60 minute shiatsu massage and a 60 minute sport massage and then decide which one is a better fit for you in the future.
4. Shut It Down: We know this can be hard, but going to the spa is the perfect excuse for turning off your cell phone and closing your laptop. Reputable spas in NJ will remind their clients to remove these distractions – it’s the only way to make the most out of the spa experience!
