With all the emphasis centred on natural remedies, organic cosmetics and botanical skincare products these days, it is no wonder that enthusiasm and investments in spa treatments are on a constant rise.
From overworked entrepreneurs to soccer moms and particularly baby boomers everyone is willing to try something that leaves them looking youthful and feeling healthier. That makes this the ideal time to engage in one of the finest personal-care industries around to get into— the day spa.
Day spas deliver beauty and wellbeing services that do not demand the same dedication as the pricey luxury salons and destination spas. As per the statistics shared by the International Spa Association (ISPA), at the very beginning of the 21st century, almost 156 million spa visits were recorded in the U.S. alone ( in the year 2001), out of which more than 65 percent were made into day spas. Also, during the same time, U.S. spa sector sales escalated to almost USD 11 billion, compared to USD 5 billion two years prior.
Nonetheless, this investment has been made for less than 10,000 spa sites nationally, 75% of which were the most popular ones on the list— that implies the ground is pretty much wide open for the new players to jump in and cash the opportunity head-on.
Here are some of the prerequisites that you must keep in your Spas and Massage rooms to attract more clientele and make your business boom.
A warm and welcoming ambience
Your massage room should be warmly decorated with a few Himalayan salt candle holders to make space appear more comfortable and soothing to every visitor/customer that drops in. Also, refrain from using bold hues and bright painting patterns. A better approach is to coat your day spa in lighter and relaxing colour tones such as beige, ivory, baby pink, oceanic blue and more.
Adding live shrubs and flowering plants in the room is a decent option to bring natural aroma in your spa space. Only ensure that their size isn’t too big to accommodate.
You may also add a potpourri of dried lavender petals with the choicest of oils to give your massage room a profound calming and stimulating scent.
Lighting basics: Himalayan salt candle holder
The lighting arrangements in the spa space should be rich and more vivid, keeping up with the colours of your wall so that ample illumination is there in the room without being too intense, of course.
It is better to utilize the options such as Himalayan salt candle holder or lamps to prevent too much brightness in a room.
The movable articles in the room should be chosen strictly by the intended dimensions so that they are well-matched and do not make the space look constrained in any way.
Select the pieces of furniture and decor that can provide ample space to keep and display your massage supplies creatively. By picking up extraordinarily large furniture, you might end up creating chaos. Instead, choose to go with lightweight and compact options that can induce a character into your spa space without eating into it.
Massage tables and chairs
Massage tables and chairs must be included in a day spa so that different types of massage therapies can be conducted as per yours or your customer’s preference. Organize the equipment and supplies alongside the Himalayan salt candle holder and fragrance humidifiers to make the space look cozy and uncluttered even in the presence of machines.
Shelves are the spaces where all tools and supplies required during massage therapy are kept— this particular section should be easily accessible by the therapist during the spa treatment. Ensure to place face cleansers, massage oils, moisturizers, tissues, and towels, disposable and other necessary articles at arm’s length distance.
Apart from this, have the cushions or pillows on the massage table and stock the towels, tissues and sheets of various sizes to be used during the massage session at your day spa.
A massage room, carrying a vibrant vibe and a trail of soothing fragrances are sure to impart a calming effect to your visiting customers instantly. Don’t skip to place a few enchanting sweet tealight candles to relax your clients but don’t kill.
Many people could be allergic to scented candles, so make sure you know your customers well before lighting up the room with these. Instead, go for the all-natural options like Himalayan salt candle holders encasing unscented tealight candles— the pink salt extracted from the caves of Pakistan have inherent properties that release negative ions when placed in the vicinity of burning light. These ions tend to clean the air around and give respite to the people with allergies— so they also get to enjoy their spa session in the relaxing ambience of the soothing flames around.
