If you are thinking of starting a spa of your own, the one thing you can be sure of is that it is a profitable business venture. More and more people these days have incorporated regular visits to the spa in their busy lifestyles. It is thought of as a way of pampering themselves, having some time off from the stress of daily routine, beautifying their face and body in a matter of hours, and visiting a place that is beautiful and where they are treated like royalty. While starting a spa can look easy, it is really quite tough. The first thing you need to do is find a property that is located in a posh area of the city. It is very rare for upper class women to travel outside their comfort zone just for a few hours of beauty rituals. So, find a spacious property and employ a good interior designer to help you transform the place to exude elegance and style without overdoing it or going beyond your set budget.
The next step is the toughest part. There are quite a few spas in every city nowadays. These may vary greatly in terms of the treatments, services and therapies they offer. Hence, you will need to decide what type of outlet you wish to set-up. A majority of spas offer some or the other type of massages such as Ayurvedic, Thai, Swedish, Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue, etc. Some also offer beauty treatments such as facials, manicure & pedicure, treatments to remove dark circles from under the eyes, laser treatments for hair removal, etc. There are some specialty spas started by doctors that even have medical procedures such as botox, lipolysis, mesotherapy, skin lightening and the like are done at their facilities, but these are rare and typically known as medical spas.
To make an informed decision about what type of spa you wish to own, you can research the topic online. Look for differences and services offered by day spas, destination spas, resort or hotel spas, medical spas, mineral spring spas, and club spas. Doing this will give you a clear idea about the issue at hand. Once you make your selection, you can then study that type of facility on the Internet. Also, make sure that the type of spa you desire is possible at the property you have purchased or gotten on lease. You may also want to visit the existing spas in your city that offer the services you are planning to. This will give you an idea about your competition, the type of clientele you could expect, the range of pricing you must consider the kind of man power you might require, and the equipment you will need to invest in.
While owning a spa can be quite fulfilling and a good step to make a name for yourself in the beauty industry, you should be ready for the substantial investment such a business needs. If you are not wealthy enough to do it with your savings, it may be best to start looking for banks that might be approached for a loan. But before you do that, make a proper business proposal with realistic financials to give you a loan figure. It is a common mistake to apply for a loan amount, only to realize later that the money is not nearly enough. Another option is to consider partnership or taking up a franchise instead. There are many established chains of spas in our country that are looking for businesswomen. Approaching a well-known spa chain company could be a good idea. The main advantage of doing this is that the investment capital for you may decrease in percentage.
