How would you rate your sensitivity to pain—moderate, medium or high? This is a great question to ask your clients, especially if it is their first time experiencing a waxing treatment.

If your spa performs body treatments, following are a few good questions to have on your body consultation card.

Are you claustrophobic? Clients who are claustrophobic may not enjoy any type of body wrap. However, leaving the arms and feet exposed does help.

Do you smoke? Smokers are great candidates for herbal wraps. Knowing this information can assist you in steering them toward a detoxifying treatment.

Do you have any known herbal allergies? When it comes to allergies, disclosing the ingredients of the products you use is extremely beneficial. For example, if you are working with a depilatory wax that contains beeswax, make sure that your clients aren’t allergic to bees.
