Who doesnโ€™t love spending their day at the spa getting pampered with a facial, a pedicure and a massage?

It sounds like the perfect day to me!

However, there are some little bits of etiquette that you might not know about.

By adding them to your spa day routine, youโ€™ll be everyoneโ€™s favorite client and may even get some special treatment now and then.

Experts say these are good rules of thumb anytime youโ€™re at the spa for any kind of treatment.

1. Tips Should Be at Least 20 Percent

Many spa workers survive on their tips because their hourly pay isnโ€™t that high.

When you get a spa treatment, itโ€™s customary to leave 20 percent of what the treatment cost.

So if you get a $100 massage, you should leave a $20 tip.

However, you can leave more if you were really impressed.

If there was a problem, speak with the spa manager and donโ€™t feel like you have to shell out for service that was subpar.

2. You Need to Remove Your Clothes

Not for a pedicure or manicure, of course, but if youโ€™re having a massage or facial, your clothes will get in the way.

Most massage therapists request total nudity so they can effectively work your entire body without fabric getting in the way.

For a facial, stripping to the waist makes the techโ€™s job easier.3

You will be covered with towels so donโ€™t worry that youโ€™ll be baring all during the treatment.

3. Stick to One Cocktail and a Small Meal

If youโ€™ve had too much to drink you may be more sensitive and that can get in the way of fully relaxing during a massage.

At the same time, a heavy meal will make you uncomfortable, especially while lying on your belly.

Stick to one cocktail and choose a light meal before you check in at the spa.2
