A visit to spa is time we devote only to ourselves, to relax and enhance our wellbeing. Rarely someone can say that going to spa is a daily activity. Mostly it is a special occasion – time to treat yourself. Perhaps you have noticed that in this particular environment - either visiting a sauna area or being alone with a therapist – you can't let go and relax completely. So to avoid these feelings, we turned to Tervis Spa representative Valerija Mjassojedova, to ask for advice – how to prepare so that you can be your most relaxed self during procedure?
Think about eating!
Don't eat anything heavy before going to spa procedure. Of course you also won't be able to completely relax if you will be starving. So if you want to eat something before hitting a spa, choose light and healthy snack. Also try to avoid caffeine filled drinks because they might give you such an energy boost that it might make you uneasy during procedure as well.
Make time to prepare!
Try to prepare for relaxation before lying down for procedure. Plan your time so there is no rush to get out of your clothes and slip in to spa robe and slippers. It is considered etiquette to take a warm shower before going for procedure. It is necessary for hygenic reasons, but also – it warms up muscles and prepares them for relaxation. After shower you can choose other options that spa centre offers, like sauna, bath or pool. Most spas have a relaxation corner where you can sit down and sip a cup of relaxing tea. Try to sit down, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. It will help you wind down, relax, calm your heart rate and slow down your thoughts.
