Must I shower?

Can I use the bathrooms between treatments?

Should my breath be any concern?

Must I take everything off?
Well, only if you feel comfortable doing so. However, if you intend to get the full spa session experience, then you might want to try taking everything off. You won’t regret doing so.

Do my eyes need to be open during the session?

Can I talk during my spa session?
Yes! You can definitely talk when getting your spa session. There’s no reason to keep quiet if something feels uncomfortable or hurts you.
