5 spa etiquette tips

To ensure everyone can enjoy their spa experience, it’s important to observe proper spa etiquette. We outline 5 spa etiquette tips for our day spa guests.

In today’s busy world, it’s hard to carve out time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. That’s why we want you to feel instantly relaxed when you walk through the doors of our day spas—and completely rejuvenated when you leave.

To ensure everyone can enjoy their spa experience to the fullest, it’s essential to observe proper spa etiquette. We’ve outlined five spa etiquette tips for all of our guests to follow:

  1. Maintain a peaceful ambiance. Most people visit the spa to get away from it all and bask in the tranquility. Use your indoor voice and keep conversations quiet in common areas like seating areas, locker rooms and hallways.
  2. Ditch the devices. We’re often connected to our phones, so why not take the opportunity to engage in a little screen-free time during your visit? Keeping your cell phone locked away in one of our lockers will also minimize disruptions (no one wants to hear your favourite song or TV show blaring while they’re trying to relax!).
  3. Be considerate of others. Start by showing up on time (aka 10-15 minutes early) for your appointment! Maintain good hygiene by showering prior to your treatment, don’t wear your outdoor shoes into the spa, pick up after yourself and….
  4. Don’t wear strong scents. We highlighted this tip in our recent blog post on preparing for a day at the spa, but it’s worth mentioning again. Some folks are sensitive to smells, and since there are many shared spaces in our spas, go easy on scented products prior to your appointment. Plus, if you’re wearing strong perfume, you won’t be able to fully benefits from the scents featured in your treatment(s)!
  5. Consider tipping your esthetician or RMT. If you’ve enjoyed your spa experience, show your appreciation with a gratuity. Of course, this is at your discretion, but our team members truly appreciate it!

By following these simple tips, you can help keep the atmosphere at our spas serene and peaceful, allowing everyone to make the most of their time and enjoy a blissful visit.
