Going to the spa for the first time can be a daunting experience. It's supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable, but when going into that change room on your own and having to prepare for your first massage can be stressful and confusing. Dave and I have enjoyed many spa experiences from luxury retreats to the downright quirky during our 18 years of travelling. We have learned through trial and error what to do when entering every type of spa from a cheap hole-in-the-wall to a 5-star service establishment. What we have noticed is that spa etiquette is pretty similar on every continent and at every price range.

The Asian table shower is offered at many Asian spas and is a simple way to cleanse the body before a massage. It is similar to and often called a Vichy shower, in which water is splashed over the body before a treatment to cleanse skin and open pores. In most cases, all clothing must be removed before entering the shower room, which may have one or several flat tables. After bathing thoroughly, you will be directed to the shower table and told whether to lay first on your back or on your stomach. You can find this treatment mostly at Korean, Thai and Japanese spas. But this type of Asian table shower is also offered at some Western and European spas.
