5 Tips to Prep for a Relaxing Spa Day


Booking a spa day is the ultimate luxury. Whether you are celebrating a special birthday or anniversary, preparing yourself for a big event like a wedding, or simply seeking some well-deserved R&R, a spa day is sure to provide you with the downtime you need to feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Here are 5 tips to help you prepare for the perfect spa day.

  1. Company

If you are thinking of going on a spa day with a friend or family member, think carefully about whether they will help to create the experience you’re after. If you’re seeking an opportunity to chat and catch up, then by all means invite your “loud” friend, but if it’s peace and quiet you’re after, you may want to reconsider!

  1. Price

The cost of spa days can vary significantly from place to place. Whilst in some circumstances a high price point will truly give you value for money, with specialist treatments and luxury facilities, others may not be worth the mark up. This is why it’s so important to research before you buy to ensure you are getting the most for your money. Be sure to read the small print to decipher exactly what your package includes – often it is better to spend more on a shorter amount of time than be fooled by cheap extended spa stays that may only offer limited or below par treatments. If you’re buying the spa day as a gift, it is well worth looking into spa day vouchers as there are always plenty of great deals on offer. By opting for a facility that also has a pool, jacuzzi and sauna, you can get more out of your experience besides from the treatments and you’ll be able to relax yourself before going for that massage.

  1. Treatments

If you are embarking on a spa day for a specific reason, such as to address your backache or brighten your complexion, be sure to research in to the treatments on offer before booking your venue. Ensure that they have specialist masseuses and beauty therapists who will be able to deal with your condition to a high standard. If you are really serious about sorting a medical condition, then you may wish to opt for a dedicated medical spa which offers health check ups and physicians, but be aware that this may not be the relaxing experience you had in mind!

  1. The Lead Up

Leading up to your spa day, it is well worth investing some time and effort into preparing yourself. You may wish to take a day off work in order to get into the relaxing spirit or you may want to spend the week detoxing from alcohol and eating healthily in order to gain an overall feeling of wellness. Get plenty of sleep beforehand so you don’t end up zonking out during your treatment and missing your massage!

  1. Packing

It is important to pack carefully for a spa trip to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed. Be sure to take swimwear with you and comfortable shoes and clothing like leggings.

A spa day is a great way to kick back and relax. By choosing your venue and treatments carefully and making use of deals and vouchers, you can be sure to get the most out of your downtime.
