The services a day spa provides are called spa treatments and they can range from massage, facials, manicures and pedicures to full body treatments. A day spa differs from destination and resort spas because, as the name implies, the spa treatments are offered during the day- not over night or weekends.
When it comes to a day spa, Brisbane is filled with facilities of every size, type and quality. You’ll find some hair salons advertising themselves as day spas when all they have is one additional room for massage that is not unsusceptible to the noise from the salon. And if you’re looking for spray tanning, Brisbane will provide you with more options than you can want, consider- or benefit from. Therefore it’s just as important to know how to select a good day spa as it is to select the spa treatments that are the perfect fit for your requirements. So before you go in for spa treatments, it’s a good idea to take a tour of your selected day spa. A good day spa should have:
• A quiet and peaceful environment
• Robes, towels and slippers for your perusal
• The standard full selection of spa treatments (massage, body treatments and facials)
• Professional masseurs/masseuses and aestheticians and quality products
• Immaculately clean facility
• Saunas, Jacuzzis, steam rooms and secure lockers (if a large day spa)
As for the indulgent treatments offered in a spa or beauty salon Brisbane can boast of, there is a full menu. You can find spas offering the most popular treatments as well as the somewhat obscure ones and the latest services. Because of the mass popularity of spray tanning, Brisbane has thousands of people supporting almost-natural looking tans. We would recommend starting with the treatments that have lasting benefits to the skin and mind- in addition to the purely cosmetic ones like spray tanning. Most day spas offer the following spa treatments:
During a relaxation massage, a therapist uses gentle physical strokes to release tension from the muscles and increase circulation. Massage therapy has been around for hundreds of years and its lasting relaxation effects make it a popular choice among spa goers even today. You would probably be naked during the massage but sheets are used to cover body parts not being worked on by the massage therapist.
A facial is used to cleanse, exfoliate and freshen up the skin to increase its softness, moisture and healthy appearance. A number of products are used to cleanse and moisturize the skin. You can also choose to get blackheads removed. Facials are always preceded with an analysis of your skin and ended with specific product recommendations for your skin type.
Body treatments like spa body wrap are basically facials- except for the entire body. The cleansing, exfoliating and nourishing are applied to the whole body. After all- it’s not just the skin on your face that needs to be looked after and properly hydrated. There are a variety of different body treatments you can choose from.
In addition to massage therapy, facials and body treatments, day spas can also offer manicures and pedicures, spray tanning, body wraps and Botox treatments etc. Choose a day spa that provides the highest quality in the treatment(s) you want.
