Relax VR can be offered at a spa in a variety of ways. It can be offered as a standalone service, combined with existing treatments, or included as part of a multi-sensory spa journey.
Relax VR transports clients using virtual reality by catering to three of their five senses - sight (visual scenery), sound (music) and smell (essential oil scents). Combining Relax VR with a treatment that caters to touch, such as a foot soak or hand massage, and adding an element of taste, such as a coconut water, creates a full multi-sensory experience that is both unique and unforgettable.
Imagine vacationing on a beautiful beach and receiving a massage that deepens the relaxation you are already experiencing. A Relax VR session deeply calms and settles a client providing the perfect preparation for a massage.
Incorporating all five senses in your treatments will help you get the most out of Relax VR:
The following list suggests paired Relax VR locations with complimentary sensory enhancements and spa treatments. While you can pair any location/meditation with any treatment, some combinations complement especially well, associating the spa experiences sensorily with specific virtual locations.
For certain treatments, such as a facial or water based treatments, it may not be possible to use Relax VR during the treatment. In these cases Relax VR can be included before or after the treatments.
Virtual reality can also be combined with existing treatments without necessarily needing to add the additional senses of taste and touch, or make a themed immersive journey.
Relax VR can be worn during a variety of treatments, allowing customers to come in for a treatment they know and love, with the added excitement of a new treatment. Some examples of treatments that Relax VR combine well with are:
Because not many people have tried virtual reality, spa parties can be a great way to introduce new customers to VR, making them comfortable with the technology and allowing them to share their new experiences with others. This can generate excitement around the experience, and encourage customers to come back later on their own to do the treatment again.
For example, if there is a group of 6 that comes in and you have one Relax VR unit, you could take 2 people out of the group at a time, allowing them to alternately do Relax VR and another treatment, e.g. a salt therapy session. The sessions could be limited to 15 min each, and then each person would then do the other treatment for 15 min. After the 30 min, they would go back to join the main group, and another pair would do the Relax VR / salt therapy session.
