Which therapist to prefer, whether male or female?

Worried about which therapist to use, confused whether to opt for a male or female one, the simplest thing that can be done is to contact the hotel. If you are comfortable using a female therapist, state your request in advance. Do not be shy. If you are a female and you prefer a female therapist, just say so. That goes for men too. Some men prefer female therapist, others prefer males, vice versa. For most spa goers, it does not matter, but it is entirely up to the individual.

What should I wear to the Spa?

Going for a spa holiday, confused about what to wear is a simple problem. It is best to wear light, casual clothing when visiting a day spa. Jewellery should be left at home, as it may interfere with treatment and most spas will not be responsible for lost or stolen jewellery.
