SPA 101: Learn the Different Types of Spa Treatments


Try to remember your first spa visit. If it was anything like mine, it was more awkward than relaxing. After getting over my fit of the giggles because shiatsu sounded a lot like something else (very mature, I know), I realized I had no idea what the heck any of the other massage options were.

I ended up getting the shiatsu anyway, snickering half the time because I didn’t anticipate all the poking my extremely ticklish body would have to endure. Note: I was the only one laughing.

One word to sum up my experience: Awkwaaaaard.

Worry not though, fellow spa first-timers! We’ve got you covered!

For the spa n00bs out there, we’ve put together a nifty little infographic that should spare you from #ThatAwkwardMoment when you have the Ventosa treatment done the night before you plan on wearing that new backless dress.

You'll find EJ rummaging through refrigerators for unlabeled leftovers, earning him the nickname, "The Finisher." He's got a knack for magic tricks too, his best one being the ability to make food on his plate (or anyone else's for that matter) disappear in the blink of an eye. Too damn cheap to be picky, he once ate several slices of pizza doused in Robitussin... just because he can.
