Close your eyes. Imagine or think back to a calm and relaxing moment in time. Visualize all the sensations that make the moment special. Many times, it is the little details that build this beautiful imagery – the soft breeze of a perfect day, the delicate sound of water trickling through river rock, or the smell of freshly baked cookies and that savory first bite.
Just as memories are built through beautiful little details, so are memorable spa experiences. As wellness practitioners, it is our responsibility to create a beautiful moment in time for our client – a brief hiatus from the anxiety and stress that is so very common these days. Afterall, the roots of a spa are steeped in relaxation. To achieve this, it is important to consider both the ambiance and experience of the spa.
