What’s better than unwinding during a day at the spa? Knowing how to maximize your experience. We consider our spas sanctuaries, and taking advantage of the amenities and services will ensure that your next visit to Burke Williams is the best yet. Check out our insider tips below to make your day at the spa more than relaxing – make it transformational.

Discover Something New

Many people have an idea of what service they want before scheduling an appointment, whether it’s a relaxing deep tissue massage or replenishing Spa Style Facial. Whatever your favorite treatment, take a moment to peruse all of the options on the Burke Williams service menu – you may discover a new favorite. From Ayurvedic and Wetroom Treatments to nail care and waxing services, Burke Williams offers something for everyone. Explore all of your options before making an appointment.

#Insider Tip: The Custom Body Polish is a great option for skincare enthusiasts looking for full body exfoliation and shine while still enjoying the benefits of a mini facial.

Make Time

Once you’ve chosen a treatment that appeals to your sense of serenity, take a moment to adjust your schedule the day of the visit. Carve out time before and after your service to take full advantage of the spa, and make your appointment a catalyst for a full day of rejuvenation. Arrive early to enjoy the whirlpool, sauna or steam room, and slip away to the quiet room for peaceful rest. Any of these amenities can be enjoyed before or after your treatment, so be sure to make time and get the most out of your spa experience.

#Insider Tip: Consider bringing a favorite book or magazine to read in the quiet room or lounge while sipping on fruit infused water.

Communicate With Your Esthetician or Massage Therapist

Communication is key when it comes to getting the most out of your treatment. Before your massage service begins let your therapist know if you’re feeling particularly stressed or sore in a certain area. They can adjust their pressure, avoid or focus on a certain region to ensure an effective and enjoyable experience. If a Spa Style Facial or Wetroom Treatment is on the books, let your esthetician know if you have any skin irritations or problem areas.

#Insider Tip: Don’t be afraid to ask for insight on stretching or how to care for your skin at home. Our skilled, knowledgeable staff is a great source of information.

Your Day at The Spa is Only The Beginning

Once you’ve received your service and taken advantage of the whirlpool, steam and quiet rooms, begin preparing for what comes after your day at the spa – a fabulous night out on the town! A day at the spa can be the perfect precursor to an unforgettable evening. We offer showers with shampoo/conditioner and fully stocked vanities with sanitized brushes, blow dryers, curling irons and flat irons. If you’re visiting our Woodland Hills or Hollywood spas, make an appointment at the Style blow dry bar to leave the spa looking like you just stepped out of a salon.

#Insider Tip If you’re bringing a change of clothes request one of our tall lockers, which offer additional horizontal space to hang your post spa outfit.

Once you’re relaxed, recharged, and ready to go, you can begin the next phase of your perfect spa day – the night to come!
