I think spas know they’re scary.
So they try to hide it. Like when you go to the dentist and they play classical music to lull you while they prep the drill from hell.
The dentist tries to make you feel warm and fuzzy by hanging pictures of cute and cuddly baby animals on the ceiling.
Meanwhile, they berate your delicate teeth with gritty polish and squirt your sensitive gums with icy water.
Spas are better at hiding the scary stuff. The rooms are dim and they have fountains tinkling everywhere and fluty music floating around. The aroma of lavender and roses wafts about.
All of this makes you forget they’re going to see that you don’t workout, your body is imperfect, and you forgot to shave your legs.
