SPA FAQS

 

At Rapunzel’s, we pride ourselves on being non-pretentious. Your comfort is our priority! We recommend wearing comfortable clothes or just wearing what you feel the most relaxed in. You will be asked to remove all jewelry; therefore we strongly recommend leaving all jewelry at home.

No worries. Our expert staff will walk you through the treatment, explaining what you’ll be experiencing at the beginning of each treatment.

We have both male and female therapists, so just let us know which you prefer when you book your appointment. If no preference is made we will book you with the therapist that is available at your requested time.

This is completely your choice. Most people choose to undress completely, and some choose to leave on their underwear. Prior to your massage or facial, your therapist will exit the room for you to get completely comfortable. During a massage treatment, we use a draping technique in which the therapist will use the sheet to cover the entire body except for the body part being worked on. During your facial, you’ll be wearing a wrap under the sheet that allows your neck, arms and decollete to be exposed for treatments. Guests under the age of 17 must have a parent or guardian in the room during treatments or outside the door with the door open.

Swedish massage is the most popular massage in the United States. The benefits of Swedish massage include increased blood circulation, mental and physical relation, decrease stress and muscle tension and improve range of motion. Deep tissue focuses on the deepest layers to help relieve aches and pains stored in the tissue, tendons and fascia.

Since massage therapy is releasing lactic acid and other toxins – which crystallized in the muscle – it can sometimes leave you sore. It’s important to communicate with your therapist regarding your expectations, as well as your current state of health. Your therapist then can tailor the massage to meet your personal needs and desires, and make adjustments to the intensity or technique as the session proceeds.

Absolutely! This is a perfect time to receive a massage to decrease the inflammation caused by the workout.

No. With acute injuries we ask you wait at least 48 hours due to the possible swelling. It’s always a good ideas to consult your physician.

Usually you will leave with glowing skin, but everyone’s skin is different. Our facials do come with extractions, so some redness may occur right after the facial.

It can take several hours to let your nails dry. It is best to wait a minimum of two hours after a pedicure before putting closed-toe shoes on to save the integrity of the nail treatment.

For optimal results for waxing, hair should be between 1/4″ to 1/2″ in length.  If hair is longer, please trim to 1/4″ prior to your appointment.  After hair removal, we recommend avoiding sun exposure, pools, salt water, and Jacuzzi’s for 24 hours to lessen the chances of bacterial infection.
