Spas in Los Angeles are everywhere and not knowing what to look for in a spa is like not knowing which mechanic to go; if you go to the wrong one it will be an expereince you will want to forget. Luckily there is some good information out there on places you should go to get your spa treatments, massages, and all the other great amenities spa services have to offer.
I want to share with you a great article on how to find the right spa that fits for you. Now these guidelines go well with any kind of spa you are looking for and the advice is great. Check it out.
When you’re feeling rather so-so, a bit shaggy around the ends, and need just an afternoon away from work and the kids to relax, nothing beats a luxury spa appointment. A massage to ease the ache in your tired muscles feels great, and when you spring for a manicure or pedicure, or opt for a facial treatment to rejuvenate your skin, you’re likely to feel ten years younger.
Depending on where you live, there are likely many spas and salons within a short driving distance ready to pamper you. How can you tell which one is right for you, and provides the quality service you deserve? Prices may vary according to a la carte services, and it’s always helpful to ask these questions before you make an appointment.
1) What would your friends recommend? Ask around. Surely you’ll know somebody who’s had a spa day, and can advise you on where to go for your styling and grooming. Spa services aren’t always about beauty, either, but promoting healthier skin and a positive attitude, so if you know a friend whose gone in recently for such an adjustment, get the details.
2) Are the massage therapists certified? Yes, you have to go to school to become certified in massage therapy. A good MT must know exactly where to knead and which oils and lotions to use for total relaxation. Most massage therapists will have their certification visible, but if you’re curious be sure to ask.
3) Is there special pricing for packages? With all the services one might offer, you could find yourself getting nickel and dimed if you select several options and find there’s no discount. Peruse websites and brochures of local salons and compare pricing. It’s a good idea, too, to check if you’re going to an actual spa as opposed to a nail salon or tanning salon that offers extra services.
4) What about hypoallergenic or “green” products? If you are concerned about allergic reaction, or prefer to use organic and eco-friendly products, ask the salon if they provide such alternative options. It may surprise you to know how many spas are going green.
Once you’re certain of which spa you want to utilize, arrange your appointment and prepare to be pampered!
