A trip to Washington Green Spa will certainly leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Our peaceful environment will soothe frayed nerves while invigorating your senses.
Sounds great, right?!
But, what if you’ve never had a massage or facial before? We are guessing you might have some questions about what your spa trip might look like.
This is totally normal. Doing something new is always a bit nerve-wracking.
We want to make your experience as pleasurable as possible - even before you walk through our doors. So let’s take a look at what you can expect from a trip to Washington Green Spa.
As you enter, you will be greeted by a friendly, smiling face at our front desk. One of our lovely receptionists will help you get checked in and ready for your service.
We ask that all clients fill out a short intake form. The information we gather from these forms will guide the massage therapist or esthetician in helping you to reach your goals. It also allows us to be sensitive to any allergies or areas of the body that need special attention during your appointment.
When you schedule an appointment, a confirmation email will be sent to your inbox. In this email you will find a link to fill out the intake information online. This helps us in our mission to be a ‘Green Spa’.

But, if you are unable to fill this out online, the receptionist will have the paperwork ready for you when you arrive. Arriving at the spa about 10 minutes early is plenty of time to fill this form out.
Once your intake form is complete, the receptionist will let the massage therapist or esthetician know you have arrived. While you are waiting, here are a few things you might want to do:
When the massage therapist or esthetician is ready, they will introduce themselves to you in the waiting area before guiding you back to their room.
Your Customized Service
Each of our services is tailored to fit your needs. The massage therapist or esthetician will ask a few questions to get an idea of what you are wanting to work on during your service.
Let the massage therapist know if you have any particular area you’d like them to target.
Some common areas clients ask us to focus on include:
Your goal might also to be to experience total body relaxation. If so, you can simply ask to have a full-body massage. This will work best with 60 minute (or longer) appointments.
The massage therapist will leave you in the room to undress to your level of comfort. You will also want to remove any larger piece of jewelry that might be in the way.
Get cozy under the blankets. The massage therapist will knock before entering again.
It’s time to relax and enjoy your massage. Throughout the massage, be sure to let the therapist know if their pressure is too much or not enough, or if you are experiencing any unpleasant sensations in a particular area.
No two facials are alike. Everyone’s skin is different. That is why our estheticians take a client-centered approach to each and every appointment.
That being said, here are some common skin complaints that our clients express:
Let the esthetician know what skin problems you are experiencing. Often clients have a combination of skin concerns, which is why each person will receive a completely unique treatment of cleansers, masques, toners, serums, peels, and more.
Once the esthetician leaves the room, you can undress to your level of comfort. Ideally, you will want to remove any articles of clothing above the waist to prevent oils or products to stain your clothing. You will be given wrap to wear under your arms like you would a towel when you get out of the shower.
Once you are cozy laying face-up under the covers, you are all set to begin soaking up all the relaxing goodness of your first facial!
Ending Your Visit
As your service comes to a close, the massage therapist or esthetician will leave you to redress. You will find a couple of hand towels in your room to be used to wipe off any oils you don’t want to get on your clothes. Take your time as you get up and prepare for the rest of your day.
Once you are dressed, grab your belongings and you can head to the front desk.
The massage therapist or esthetician will meet you at there with a boxed water or hot tea. They may have recommendations on how soon you should return in order to reach your goals or products that would be beneficial for at-home use. If relaxation is your goal, we suggest clients schedule an appointment every 3-4 weeks.
If you have questions about any of our services or specials, the receptionist would be happy to answer those questions. Feel free to browse around our collection of chemical-free makeup and plant-based body care products. (Get a sneak peak at the products we have to offer at our online marketplace!)
When you are all ready to leave you can pay for your service at the front desk with the receptionist. This is a great time to schedule your next appointment to keep yourself on track in reaching your goals. Feel free to bring a calendar or planner with you, and the receptionist will help you schedule your next appointment.
