First time at the Spa…what to expect?
Tips on how to make the most of your first visit to the Spa…
Before you arrive
Ensure you confirm your Spa Treatments to avoid disappointment, there is nothing worse than a back massage in mind and on the day being told there is no availability.
If you have any queries or concerns contact the Spa directly, there will always be someone on hand to answer any questions you may have.
What to take with you?
You actually need very little to do absolutely nothing!
Make sure you wear comfortable loose fitted clothes and remember your swimwear. If you think you may be inclined to take advantage of the gyms, classes, tennis or squash courts then pop your sportswear in your bag too. Here at Ardencote Spa we provide all Spa Day and Spa Break guests with complimentary slippers and hire of bathrobe, towel and locker.
While you are at the Spa
When you arrive a member of the reception team will be there to greet you, talk to you through your day, confirm your treatment times and provide you with a full showround of the facilities we offer. Here at Ardencote we advise that you shower before entering the wet areas and spend a maximum of 30 minutes at a time in the heated facilities which include Outdoor Hot Tub, Sauna, Jacuzzi and Steam Room.
It is advisable not to eat a large meal before a massage and be sure to drink PLENTY of water to enhance the benefits of your Spa experience and to ensure you stay well hydrated.
10 minutes before your scheduled treatment time make your way to the Spa Reception, you will then be transported to tranquillity via the spiralled staircase. This allows you extra time to complete the consultation card and ensure you enter your treatment feeling worry free and relaxed…not rushed!
Communicate with your therapist…remember this is YOUR treatment and it is vital you discuss your concerns/problem areas and desired results with your therapist so that she can ensure your treatment is personalised to you.
RELAX – No one is judging you! Ardencote Spa provides a number of areas such as the tranquillity room and relaxation lounge where you can leave day to day stresses at the door.
When your treatment is finished take your time, don’t rush!
After you leave the Spa
Continue your relaxed approach for the rest of the day and continue to drink plenty of water, and maybe that sparkling beverage you have been waiting for!
Above all RELAX and ENJOY your day!
