Ideas for In-Home Spa Services

I'm planning to open an in-home spa offering aesthetic services. What is your favorite service to receive? What themes do you think are most suitable for a spa (Nature, Elegance, etc.)? What music do you prefer to have playing in the background (Classical, Relaxation, etc.)? Would you like a TV available to watch during your service?


Should there be beverages available? If so what should there be? What are your favorite product scents (lavender, lemon, mocha, etc.)? I would like your tips, ideas and opinions about spas and their services. I would like to have a wider range of ideas of what it is people are looking for. Thanks.

I love-love-love plantlife with flowers to add color with trickling water over rocks and aquarium fish and the sound of birds singing. The fragrance of a fresh spring rain or cascading waterfall with sweet smelling flowers would be nice. Perhaps lemonade, ice tea or water could be offered. With all this around me, I wouldn't need a tv, radio or other entertainment to distract my attention away from a really relaxing atmosphere created. I would like to feel like I've been to someplace special and would want to return again and again.


This is my taste preference and I'm an older woman.

If your area is really large and roomy enough, perhaps you could add a few other themes for individual preferences such as: hard rock cafe with soft jazzy or reggae music, bright colors, and figurines in action poses. Soft drinks to please the young at heart.

For the person desiring elegance, then dimmed lights, fragrant candles, wine coolers, flavored coffee and teas, flowing silk or satin drapery offering a look of seclusion. Perhaps classical music, rose bouquet(s), trees and ornate stand to hold a lovely dish of mints.

Wow. You've got a great idea - so many of us just want a little pampering!


I'm 47 now, and my idea of the ideal service is a simple neck rub. I have constant neck pain and would melt away in bliss if someone were to wrap my neck in a hot towel for a few minutes, then give me a nice, gentle neck rub. Close second, if practical, would be a shiatzu massage. I tried an electric shiatzu massage chair in our local Rite-aid one afternoon, and almost didn't want to get up, lol!

Beverages don't have to be fancy, necessarily. My idea of a relaxing beverage is a cup of hot chamomile tea, although others might like other flavors. Any soft, non-intrusive music would work, although the trickling water or aquarium noises can also be relaxing. As for TV, I wouldn't want it. If you're going somewhere to absolutely relax, the jarring intrusiveness of today's TV commercials just wouldn't gel. Hope these ideas help, best to you in your new venture!
