Connect as a Couple with a Spa Day
You do everything together — sleep, exercise, eat and watch television. But, enjoying hours of relaxation is one luxury you have not shared. Spend the day at a palace of rest and relaxation, the spa.
Pick a good time
Leave no excuses to interrupt an incredible day at the spa. Pick a good day and time outside the realm of any professional or social obligations. In addition to a good time for you and mate, see what times host lower rates and prices.
Like making sure you brush your teeth before visiting the dentist, ensure you are bathed and groomed before the spa. You don’t want to embarrass yourself or the massage therapist and spa workers who will be handling your body, feet and scalp.
Eat light foods
You don’t want to dine on a six-course dinner and then head to the day spa where you’ll be resting on your stomach, subjected to heat and having professionals handle your abdomen area. Eat something light, so there’s no reason for you to get an upset stomach or feel bloated and uncomfortable.
Take off your pants
There’s a time and place for sexuality, but day spa therapists are professional when it comes to massage, and they prefer clients take clothes off for easy access to muscles and body parts. If you’re a little shy, then you’re not indulging in the full experience.
Get it hard or soft
Be vocal with your massage therapist regarding how you like your massage, and let them know if it’s your first time. If you desire a harder massage, let it be known. Alternatively, if your muscles are sensitive, alert your therapist about preferences.
Know the menu
Know what’s in store before stepping through the doors. If you’re new to modern methods of massage and body therapy, you’re in for a treat. Learn about all the things therapists do to make you feel great. Visit the spa’s website for detailed information about treatments and methods.
The Keturah Award Winning Day Spa offers a suite of treatments along with vouchers, packages, products and corporate bookings.
The spa is not the place to spare money. Aside from the price next to treatment listings, the value includes how you feel afterward. You can’t put a price on your health, so you shouldn’t cut corners when shelling out the cash for the spa.
Talk about it
Talk about the experience with your mate. Discuss what you liked, what areas were stimulated and what sensations (hot or cold) were particularly enjoyable. Aside from the immediate spa experience, mates who talk about what they like and dislike are better lovers.
Do it together
Some treatments are performed in isolation while others in areas where your mate is present and can get involved. Speak with chosen spa representatives about services and what treatments you and your mate can do together.
A day at the spa is sure to please you and your mate, but there are some things to consider before, during and afterward. Preparation is key to optimizing your spa experience.
