Redesign for Spa

I am scheduled to redecorate a Spa for a client this weekend. I am excited about the opportunity and I have many ideas about how to rearrange the furniture but I am curious if there are any guidelines for places like these. Since it isn't a room in a home are there different things to consider? There isn't exactly a focal point such as a fireplace or TV.
The spa owner has a couple of different areas ie: haircutting chair, skin & massage chair (which is located behind a folding screen, reception desk and waiting area.
I just wanted to know if you have any tips regarding a place like this as I might have more in the future if this one is successful.
Thank you,

It's totally impossible to advise you with no knowledge whatsoever of the space or what's in it. Then you have to choose a focal point, or focus on the way to best make clients at the spa feel the most comfortable. Many businesses like this have a lot of literature scattered about. Try to declutter the space and make it as peaceful a setting as you can. Create vignettes with the furniture if you can, rather than the "chairs pushed up against the wall in a row" sort of thing that one normally sees. Look for ways to make the waiting area pleasant as it's gets boring quickly in there.
