A day spa is an organization that offers a wide variety of different services to enhance beauty, health, and relaxation. Contrary to a regular beauty salon, a day spa does not have manicures, pedicures, and facial treatments; instead, all services are offered at the spa itself. A day spa is completely different from a regular beauty salon in the way that it has facilities like a steam room, sauna, pool, or whirlpool which guests can use as well as their treatment. Day spas often have other activities like yoga or energy tonics, which is perfect for those who are tired and stressed out after a long, hard day at work or school.
Since there are no nails, waxing, hair styling, or other services offered at a day spa, there must be a reception desk and a spacious waiting area. Typically, most reception desks will be equipped with a sink, a countertop, and a customer table, but some do offer other amenities such as ovens and pizza ovens. Most reception desks are equipped with a standard chair or folding chair so that customers can sit while receiving a massage. Showers can be either self-tied or with a shower curtain. Massage chairs may not be included as part of the reception desk services.
Massages are offered in most spas but are more common in spa franchises than in individual spas. There is no regulation on what massage is allowed to occur in each state, so some spas will offer regular Swedish massages, full-body massages, hot stone massages, and even therapeutic reflexology. It is up to the client to determine which of these treatments is right for them. If you are looking for a full body massage, you will need to travel to several different spas for them to all to provide the service. For example, if you wanted a Swedish massage, you would have to travel to a sanitized facility, find the massage therapist, and have the therapist give you one.
Day spas typically offer different types of massages as well, including sports massage, prenatal day massages, relaxations, and holistic massages. Sports massage is often done by a licensed masseuse who is familiar with the techniques of different sports. Prenatal and relaxations are often given at day spas as well as at hospitals.
Most day spas also offer facials, however, not all spas will provide this service. Many will simply use a mixture of oil, foam, and other products to apply to your face and body for a relaxing facial. Other facials involve using special equipment to “pop” spots, which removes the top layer of skin to reveal younger, healthier skin. A variety of other treatments can be used to revitalize your skin and provide you with a rejuvenating experience. These treatments include wrinkle treatments, collagen treatments, skin brighteners, and exfoliation kits, as well as anti-aging and beautification creams. There are even a select number of spa specialties such as plastic surgery, rhinoplasty, body contouring, among others.
Day spas are similar to other salons, but they tend to offer more pampering and less expensive services. While most day spas do manicures, pedicures, and facial treatments, some specialize in certain treatments. For example, many will only do body wraps if you want to have one, whereas a facial spa will do body wraps, scrubs, and other types of facial treatments. If you do not know what type of facial or body wrap you want, it is important to ask before you go into the day spa. You do not want to be charged for a service you did not want.
