There is nothing more disappointing than building up the anticipation of your spa trip in your head only to have it not really live up to your expectations. If your friends rave about their spa experiences but you have been a little lacklustre, then don’t despair. If you are a spa novice then the experience itself can be a little overwhelming if you are not sure what to expect, and what facilities and treatments the spa you have chosen offers. 

We have put together a few suggestions to help you get the most out of your spa trip. 

Check out your options

Before you book your spa experience it can be a good idea to take a look at what is available, you want your Lake District Spa experience to be something to remember. Ask your friends for recommendations. You may also want to check out some websites to see what sort of treatments are available – this is particularly important if you are looking for a specific treatment as every spa is different. If you are not sure of anything then give sites a quick call, they will be happy to help. 

What type of treatments are on offer?

Amongst the standard treatments that you will find at any good spa are things like rejuvenating rituals, a range of facials designed to address a number of issues and massages to help you relax and unwind whilst softening the skin. Each spa will have a slightly different programme of these types of treatments and will be able to tailor a package to suit the needs of each individual client should they prefer. 

Elemis treatments are also another incredibly popular treatment that you will find in many of the best spas. These include things like facial peels, detox wraps and anti-aging treatments to name just a few. There are even special treatment packages that have been carefully put together for a relaxing spa experience during pregnancy. 

Rasul treatments which involve mineral rich clay in combination with heat and steam are a wonderful way to relax and are a great spa experience and a great choice if you want to share the spa experience with a friend. 

Other things to consider on your spa trip

If you really want to make the most of your spa experience, then don’t forget to check out what extras are available at your chosen location. These are the things that you may not need to book in advance like your treatments. 

Many spas have saunas that can be used by their guests and can be a very popular choice, particularly when enjoyed as part of a bigger spa experience with one of more bookable treatments. You may also want to see if they have a swimming pool – swimming offers gentle, beneficial exercise without the strains that you could potentially subject the body to in a gym or other exercise environment. When this is combined with other spa treatments it can offer a great sense of wellbeing and relaxation for both the body and mind and is a great way to set yourself up for the day to day stresses you might encounter in day to day life. 

Many of the spa day packages that you can book will also include a lunch and drinks option. If you are hoping to enjoy the facilities of a sauna and book your treatments separately then don’t forget to allow yourself some time to enjoy a special lunch at your spa facility. This really is a great way to indulge all of your senses in a fantastic spa day experience.
