If you are about to visit a spa for the first time, you may be a little apprehensive because they don’t know what to expect nor are they familiar with spa etiquette in Chicago. The key to a grand and glorious experience is to relax. Many people are concerned about the lack of clothing during a massage. Don’t worry. Stringent protocols are observed. When you are being massaged, only that part of your body being worked on is exposed. Everything else is covered by a sheet or towel. Don’t be ashamed that you don’t know what to do; you will have someone with you that does. Your task is simple: relax and enjoy the experience.
Choosing the Spa
For many people, when choosing a spa, they focus on convenience. Having a spa in your area is wonderful, but there is far more to the experience than “what’s close by.” You want to be surrounded by friendly, nurturing people from the staff member that greets you to the therapists, nail artists, and make-up artists.
When you first arrive, you want to walk into a quiet, relaxing, beautifully designed and decorated environment. Pleasant music, subdued lighting, and absolute cleanliness are a given.
First Time Visitor
When you call the spa in Chicago for an appointment, if you have never had the experience before, tell the concierge. This person will be happy to answer any questions that you may have, tell you what treatments are available, tell you what they are like, and, perhaps make a suggestion. The most common and popular spa treatments include massage, facials, manicures, and pedicures.
A massage is an ideal treatment and having one will help you relax and rid your body of tension. Of course, you can spend as much time as you wish. You can combine services, too, so perhaps consider a massage, facial, manicure, and pedicure.
