Spa Etiquette

Before You Arrive

Advance Bookings

We highly recommend booking your treatment in advance to ensure your preferred time and service is available. If cancellation is necessary, a 24 hour notification is appreciated.

Time to Share

With individually inspired treatment suites, we are able to offer you and a friend or loved one the peaceful experience of being side by side to enjoy your massage and/or nail services. To assure your time together please inform our staff when booking your appointment.

Arrival Time

Please arrive 15–20 minutes before your appointment. Arriving early allows you to smoothly transition from the outside world to the calming ambiance of the Belleza relaxation area. You may also fill out paperwork and change into a robe and sandals provided prior to your treatment. Arriving late cheats you out of valuable treatment time. Please note that late arrivals will not receive an extension of scheduled treatment time in consideration of the next client.

Steam or Sauna

Belleza offers complimentary steam or sauna to any of our clients who have reserved a massage, facial, or body treatment. Please call 865.558.8424 to let a booking representative know you would like to add this service so that it may be ready upon arrival or when you finish your service.

Before Your Spa Treatment

General Preparations

Drink a lot of water to maintain hydration and receive the full benefit of your experience at Belleza. The water will flush out any toxins released by massage, body treatments, sauna or steam and essential oil treatments.

Cell Phones

We want to create and ensure a relaxing environment and experience for all of our guests. In consideration of others, please refrain from talking on your cell phone inside the spa. All cell phones must be in silent mode or turned off. All guests must keep all conversations to a whisper, as not to disrupt our other clients.

What to Wear

Clients who have reserved a massage, facial, or body treatment will have the option to receive a locker, robe and sandals when they arrive at Belleza. Lockers are provided for your convenience however, Belleza is not held responsible for any valuables brought into the spa, even those left in our lockers.

As you change into your robe, dress to your comfort level. During a massage treatment, our therapists drape you to protect your privacy, so being completely naked is appropriate. If you feel more comfortable wearing undergarments for your massage, please feel free to do so. If your treatment involves rinsing with water or certain waxing treatments, Belleza can also provide disposable underwear.

Medical Conditions and Pregnancy

When scheduling your treatment, please let us know if you have any physical ailments, medical conditions, or allergies. Our service providers should also be notified if you are pregnant, have high blood pressure, a heart condition, or any other medical condition. Our staff will personalize your treatment to meet any special needs or accommodations you may require. If you have any questions about a spa treatment and your health, please consult a doctor.
