SPA is an abbreviation borrowed from Latin "Sanus per Aquam" meaning "water is a source of health". In the Roman Empire thermal sources and baths were successfully used to treat many diseases. This method of treatment was called SPA. In the modern meaning SPA is a healing complex of procedures with the use of many kinds of water both mineral and sea and sweet and also with the use of algae, salts, curative mud and herbs.
SPA procedures aim at relaxing and healing your body as the whole. Influencing through a skin layer, a SPA intensifies the process of metabolism and improves the state of your health. A SPA typically offers a wide range of hydro-massage, baths with healing water and varieties of manual massage involving professional masseurs who can relax the muscles of the body. After SPA procedures, skin tends to get very resilient and soft, improving its tone and getting full of living energy.
If you want to become a successful SPA manager or create your own SPA business you should follow this advice: if you have enough money to start your business, first of all you will need to hire a professional SPA manager. It is not an easy task because the SPA business is very vulnerable for the smallest mistakes a SPA manager can make. That is why professionalism and one's past SPA background should be on the front rank. A good SPA manager should have an experience both of a SPA customer and a performer of the SPA process. It is vital for the successful development of a SPA company.
If you want to make a SPA manager career, then you need to get familiarized with SPA manager duties. A SPA manager should be able to create his SPA team and heighten the client's interest in the salon. A SPA manager should have analytic abilities to foresee various aspects of development. The wrong priorities can break everything in the SPA business. Much attention should be paid to the creation of a good SPA team. All trainees should take special courses and pass exams on the most recent SPA technologies, SPA etiquette and methods of selling. A SPA manager should conduct team trainings, periodical auditing, monitoring and raising the level of his or her staff's skill.
The basic tendencies of the development of SPA in the world are as follows: The first one is the change of clientele of the most SPA salons. If in past the customers were represented mostly by women, now more and more men come to visit SPA salons and this tendency is growing. The age range of customers is also widening and SPA salons are attended both by people of forties and teens who consider SPA to be an interesting experience. Contemporary SPA clients try new SPA methods willingly and become more open for exotic methods borrowed from other cultures.
The proportion of hardware methods is reducing as the customers come to prefer manual techniques. Nowadays we have a great interest in Oriental massage techniques, Tai and Turkish massage in particular. In addition, SPA nutrition has come into existence quite recently, because it is impossible to improve one's health and rid disorders of the digestion system.
The analysis of the situation on the SPA market and the experience of the most successful SPA centers show that even exotic SPA techniques are getting popular and widespread under competent guidance of a qualified SPA manager.
