Spa Etiquette – 5 Most Common Questions

If you’re visiting a spa for the first time, there’s no doubt that you might have a few questions about how one must carry themselves, in particular, when it comes to undressing in front of strangers.

With that said, here are 5 common questions that are asked before visiting a spa:

#1: What should I do if it hurts?

With the massage therapist there to serve you, all you have to do is tell him or her that the pressure being applied is a bit too much – or even too less.

#2: Will men get aroused?

The massage therapist applies a special type of therapeutic massage, which is non-sexual in nature, which will feel soothing and relaxing but won’t arouse anyone.

#3: How much should I tip?

Usually a tip of 15 % to 20 % is recommended if the spa offers you excellent service. Just remember that if you are using a spa gift certificate, ensure that you ask if it includes tips. If not, then you’ll have to pay in cash.

#4: Will I have to take all my clothes off for a massage?

While this is the most popular question, the thing is that most types of massages don’t require one to take off their clothes. However, with the Swedish massage, you might have to take them off, and for which, appropriate cover will be provided.

#5: How long can I lie on the table after the massage?

Since the massage therapist will need to use the room for the next customer, the maximum time allotted to the previous one is five minutes, and after which they can move to a meditation room or a lounge if they wish to.
