Go Lightly Eat a light meal.  You can bring a snack with you and eat a piece of fruit at the spa. This will elevate your blood sugar after your treatment.
Clean Up Have a hot or warm shower before the  Body massage.  This will help to open the muscles.
Stretch It Out Before a body, massage does some light stretching exercises.
Take It Easy After spending time at the spa avoid strenuous activities.  You may feel lightheaded.
Be Open Minded Facials and Massages are therapeutic.  If you are prepared they will be relaxing too.
