There is nothing more important about a spa experience than your own personal comfort, which is exactly why you will be offered a gender choice when it comes to your therapist at Trellis, The Spa at The Houstonian. If you have a strong preference for a male or female therapist, this may limit your options when it comes to choosing your treatment. Just make sure you have your priorities predetermined when you call to book your spa service. It may be more important for you to get your massage on a certain day than by a certain gender. We suggest you are flexible in regards to the treatment date if gender is an issue for you. That being said, if you book an appointment for your teen, the spa will automatically pair a therapist of the same gender unless you request otherwise. Bottom line is, when you are booking your appointment at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa, be sure to tell the spa attendant if you want a male or female therapist.
