For many people, the idea of a day at the spa is an appealing way to relax and unwind. In addition to the feel-good factor, getting a massage can help calm the sympathetic nervous system which raises blood pressure and puts you at risk for heart disease.
As a result, the spa industry is growing and the number of people seeking treatment is rising. But can these exotic treatments really deliver on their promises? And if they do, do any of them come with health risks that you should know about?
One of the most important things to look for when you’re deciding where to get a massage is customer service. A spa with excellent customer service will always make a client happy. For example, if you visit two different spas for a pedicure and one of them provides the same pedicure but the technician at that one is very attentive, friendly and generally kind and thoughtful towards her clients, it will create a great impression and you’re more likely to go back to that salon in the future.
Another thing to consider when choosing a spa is its warranty and customer support. If something goes wrong with your spa, it’s essential to have a quality company to support you. Ensure the spa you buy has a warranty that covers both parts and labour, and a good after sales service. Also, look for a spa that has advanced features like wireless technology and the ability to connect music and apps, turn on/off lights, adjust water temperature and jet settings, set operating and cleaning modes, and more.
