Spa Habitat Health and Sterilization Policies for COVID-19

March 2021 Update:

In light of new updates by the State of Texas, Spa Habitat will maintain its existing mask policy until further notice. All Spa Habitat employees will wear masks when within proximity of each other or any guests, and we request that guests wear masks within public areas of the spa for the comfort and peace of mind of other spa guests. Spa Habitat guests do not need to wear masks while in treatment rooms receiving a service. However, your service provider may ask you to wear one while face up on a massage table out of courtesy and the abundance of caution, as some employees may be high risk or may live with high-risk individuals. Thank you for your cooperation.

General COVID-19 Policies and Procedures:

All Spa Habitat locations are open for all services, including massage, facials, waxing, body wraps and scrubs, and foot rituals. Below is some information regarding our policies, procedures, and extreme sanitation measures we are taking to help keep everyone safe.

Services Offered.
The State of Texas has declared it safe for spas to provide all massage and beauty services, while implementing strict health and safety precautions. During this cautious time, we will be attempting to maximize social distancing and enhanced cleanliness and sterilization protocols.

Hours of Operation.
All Spa Habitat locations are currently open for full hours of operation. Please check each location’s page on this website for the latest details on store days and hours.

General Precautions.
Guests who visit Spa Habitat will likely be coming into direct contact with only one person (your service provider), and will likely otherwise only interact with one front desk associate. This is not a high-risk environment with large crowds of unknown individuals, it is more of a one-on-one situation. We believe that the spa is a relatively safe place to be, as we are dramatically limiting any risk of wide community spread.

Mask Policy.
All service providers and spa employees will be wearing masks for your protection. To protect other guests and employees, we request that all guests wear masks at all times in all public areas of the spa, including our apothecary, relaxation rooms, foot ritual rooms, and hallways. Guests are not required to wear a mask once inside a private treatment room receiving spa services.

Sterilization.
Spa Habitat always strives to keep a clean, sterile and sanitary environment for our guests and team members. We always follow and exceed all strict sanitary policies and procedures as required by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation for massage therapy and esthetic services. All tools, utensils, magnifying lamps, hot stones, and other such supplies are all sterilized prior to each use. All linens are washed with soap, bleach, and agitation, and dried completely and thoroughly on high heat, which acts to sterilize the linens prior to each use. During this time, we are taking extra special care to sanitize door handles, pens, clip boards, restrooms, fixtures, massage tables, headrests, and all other touch points consistently throughout the day with sanitary wipes. And of course, employee hands are washed and sterilized consistently and thoroughly before every touch or interaction.

We are offering our pre-service heated herbal neck wraps as an option to guests at this time. Each heated wrap is sterilized with ultraviolet light prior to each use.

Most spa locations offer multiple waiting areas, should you be uncomfortable sitting in one of our waiting rooms due to social distancing concerns. Guests may also choose to wait outside or in their cars until their appointment time is ready. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience or changes to the typical Spa Habitat experience.

Spa Employee Health.
All Spa Habitat employees who test positive for coronavirus, or who develop symptoms of coronavirus, including fever, cough, shortness of breath, sinus issues or other related symptoms, will be required to stay at home until healthy or cleared by a doctor.

Customer Health.
For the safety of our teams and our other guests, any guests who have any symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, sinus issues or other related symptoms will not be permitted at Spa Habitat until doctor clearance is provided. We may also request to take guest’s temperatures for the safety of our team, and we reserve the right to refuse appointments to any guests with a fever, cough, or other symptoms. Additionally, we will be asking all guests to sign an assumption of risk and waiver of liability form. Thank you for your cooperation on these matters.

Studies show that spa services can help boost the immune system. We’d love for you to come visit us and let us help you relieve stress in this time of uncertainty. We promise to treat you with the utmost care.

Please contact the spa directly by phone if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
