Close your eyes.
Imagine a person in perfect health.
What features did you give them? Maybe you gave them a perfect smile, small waist line, or six pack abs. These are all common features used to determine how healthy a person is at first glance. But what about the other signs like glowing skin or being bright eyed and bushy tailed?
Being healthy is not just about your weight or good blood work results. It’s also about managing stress.
Skinny people take care of their body inside and out! And one of the best places to pamper your outer body is the spa. This past Sunday I had the pleasure of going to DuBunne Spa Club and massage center (Shout out to my daddy for the awesome birthday gift!) for a lemon drop sugar scrub, rub and wrap. This was 80 minutes of bliss!
Following my treatment, I took advantage of the spa’s amenities including the quiet room (decked out with a 40” flat panel TV playing a DVD of waves hitting the shore), mimosas, and the steam room. When I was finally ready to leave DuBunne I felt completely relaxed and ready for the upcoming work week.
Although it was my first spa experience I am totally hooked and plan to return as soon as possible, in fact I am redoing my budget to include the membership dues (only $19/month)! If you’re in the Torrance, CA area and looking for some rest and relaxation, I recommend Alex at DuBunne for a great massage.
Here are some tips on spa etiquette to help you make the most of your visit.
- TURN OFF YOUR PHONE & leave it in your locker!
- Massage is usually done nude, but you are covered with a sheet at all times in American spas. Only the part being massaged is exposed.
- Arrive at least 20 minutes before your spa appointment so you have time to check in, change into robe and slippers, and relax.
- You can talk during the treatment or stay quiet, as you choose. The therapist will follow your lead.
- Don’t forget to tip 10%-20%.
