First Time Spa Guide

Everything you need to know for your first spa experience

Our first time advice

Going on a spa break is often seen as a luxury, and of course it can be just that. However, it can also be an essential part of wellbeing. It can be a time for indulgence, for peace and quiet, to address a skincare issue you have been putting off for a long time, a semi-regular way of resetting in a busy working world, and it can also be a really restorative time of healing. The impact that a massage can have on a body that has been through the rigours of surgery, cancer treatment or simply the stresses and strains of everyday life - looking after kids, sitting at a desk and worrying about the world around us - can be phenomenally healing. For those who have never been on a spa day or break before, it can be intimidating, exciting, or you might not really be sure what all the fuss is about. For many first time spa goers, there are a lot of questions, from what to wear to what you actually do all day, so here’s our guide to help you feel confident, relaxed and get the most out of your first spa break.
