Licenses and Accreditation:
Before getting started in the business, it is vital for any potential business owner to understand the requirements for licensure and accreditation needed in the state. Every state will have different business guidelines, but most will require some form of licensing or accrediting.

A spa offers a wide range of services, but the particulars vary based on the type of spa. Regardless of the type of spa, most will offer some basic beauty and relaxation services like facials, waxing and massage. These services are common among many different spas.
Some spas will require health services as well. A medical spa often focuses on cosmetic and physical well-being and caters services around the aspect of health. Other spas put more focus on relaxation, such as a day spa that puts in a sauna and whirlpool for customer enjoyment.
Services often define the type of spa and the necessary experts. For example, a medical spa will require at least one physician while a day spa might need more massage experts.
