Why not say exactly that - Please be quiet, relaxing treatment in progress?

I've worked in 2 different salons that did these signs. The first one made signs to hang on the door handles. It was like mini black-boards and they attached rafia for the handle. Then wrote 'shhhhh...I'm relaxing!' on it with chalk.

Then I was in another salon who wanted this type of thing. I told them about the shhh signs because they really looked lovely. They though it was rude to put 'shush' so printed off ones with 'Quiet Please! Please respect that people are having treatments!' which I thought seemed much ruder >< It was also just a laminated sign stuck on doors/windows and I really don't think the people passing by took any notice (they still made a lot of noise)

Try and think up a pretty way of doing your sign in my experience passers by will pay more attention I really liked the black board idea and its easy to do with the special black paint.

I work within a gym and have a Vacant/Available sign for the door. It's a bit 'officey', but it does the trick. Got it on EBay for 11.
