Creating a Spa Experience for the Senses

Creating a Spa Experience for the Senses
Posted on
You may have heard that we eat with our eyes first, but the same can be said about heading to the spa. Creating a relaxing and luxurious spa space requires more than just a pedicure bowl and a few towels. Using all five senses is the key to an unforgettable experience and ensuring your clients will be ready to return to again and again.

It might sound obvious, but presentation matters when it comes to your spa space. Color choices, lighting, and layout all work together and impact the feeling your clients have when they’re with you. Does your décor add to feelings of calm, tranquility, and relaxation? Is your space cozy and warm or sleek and minimalistic? Is it obvious where your client should sit and easy to move through the area? Our pedicure bowls are made to be mobile, giving you the freedom to set up your station almost anywhere. With a range of mix-and-match accessories like treatment dishes and footrests, you’re sure to have a stylish set up that looks great every time.

Calming instrumentals? Soft nature sounds? The sound in your spa space is just as important as the look and feel. If you’re going to play music or have anything on in the background, curate a playlist to avoid any unwanted songs popping up on shuffle and make sure the volume is appropriate that you can still easily talk to your client. While some clients may enjoy making small talk or listening to music, some may want to soak up a few moments of silence—ask if they have a preference to help personalize the experience and achieve the ultimate level of relaxation.

Inhale. Exhale. What do you smell? Scent is one of the most powerful ways we can trigger memories and emotions. Beyond making your space smell nice (no one likes a stinky spa) choosing scented products thoughtfully can impact the experience your clients have. Focused on deep relaxation? Try lavender. Looking for something energizing and invigorating? Citrus. Try using a reed diffuser, room spray, or scented candles for an added scent boost during appointments.

So much of the spa experience is dependent on touch and connection. But it’s important to consider non-human touch, too. Things like linens and towels, skincare products, and even the feel of the inside of the pedicure bowl are all impactful parts of creating the best experience possible for clients. Our hand-hammered pedicure bowls have unique patterns as a result of the hammering process, while our resin bowls feature a gentle texture on the inside of the bowl—a subtle finishing touch and treat for feet.

Eating in the spa might be a no-no, but we all know hydration is a major component of skincare and overall health and wellness. Consider serving your clients a beverage—like fruit infused water or herbal tea—before you begin your treatment. Not only is it a simple gesture with some big benefits, but it also gives you a few extra minutes to finish setting up and preparing your space between appointments.
