As you can imagine, our Spa Coordinators spend many hours each day fielding your questions. We love questions! They help us understand what you see, and what you don’t when you’re looking to book an appointment with us at Healing Waters Spa. We decided to take a deeper dive into your Frequently Asked Questions and publish a blog series. (You inspire us!) We hope this series will offer new clients an opportunity to learn more about #HWSYEG and introduce our existing clients to more comprehensive view of our space!
FAQ No. 1“Do you have inclusive sizing?” “I’m a size 22. Do you have a robe that will fit me, or do I need to bring my own?” “I’m plus sized, what do I need to bring with me?”
We acknowledge that fat-phobia exists in our culture, the fallacy that is “one-size fits all”, and that the reality that many spa services often require our clients to undress and vulnerably share parts of their body with a practitioner, who is likely a stranger. Comfort is a core pillar of our mission at Healing Waters Spa and because of this, we have taken a close look at where comfort, in a tangible sense, is sought in our space.Robe Sizes: We offer robes that range in sizes, up to 3XL. We are currently advocating for inclusive sizing to be made available through our Spa Partners at Phytoderm. Wraps & Linens: We use wide linens to dress our tables and have expandable demi-robes for our Facial treatments. Heading into the steam room or receiving a Glow Scrub, Mud Wrap, or Hammam treatment? Our wraps and linens for these services are intentionally wide and can swaddle every inch of our clients, we promise. Spa Sandals: We offer sandals upon entry to all our clients. Sandals are available in women’s sizes 7-10 and men’s 9-11. Chairs: Our pedicure chairs were chosen specifically to accommodate a variety of body types. We test drove these babies! Our deep-seated wing backs are sturdy, real chairs that offer real comfort. Our Manicure chair is a vintage beauty that has a comfortable “armed while being armless” look! Our reception and waiting area chairs are armless. Tables: All three of our treatments rooms have electric tables that are 30″ wide and have a lifting capacity of 432 lbs.
