Most people know generally remove your clothes for massage and body treatments, but you are draped with sheets or large towels. Relax—no one is judging your body. Take slow, deep breaths before your treatment begins. Envision every muscle in your body relaxing, and simply be open to the experience.
Communicate with your therapist. If you have any feedback on the temperature or amount of pressure, let them know. You can talk or not, as you prefer—the therapist will usually follow your lead. When the treatment is over, take the time to slowly reintegrate, rather than rushing off. A tip of 15% to 20% is appropriate.
When you get back home, continue the good feeling by taking care of yourself. Most spas sell the products they use but don’t feel pressured to buy, although it’s a good idea to get into a proper skin care routine at home.
