Spa Habitat Health and Sterilization Policies for COVID-19

We are happy to report that all Spa Habitat locations are now open again for all services, including massage, facials, waxing, body wraps and scrubs, and foot rituals! Below is some information on our current service offerings and the extreme sanitation measures we are taking to 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. As we ramp our business back up, we will have a limited number of service providers available for each day and each shift, in order to maximize social distancing. All services will be by appointment only. No walk-ins allowed.

Hours of Operation.
Please check each location’s page on this website for the latest details on store days and hours.

General Precautions.
During this phase, 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.

All service providers and spa employees will be wearing masks for your protection. For our team’s protection during this phase, and per the guidelines from the State of Texas, we request that all guests wear masks at all times inside the spa, except when receiving facial or face waxing services, or when face-down on a massage table. Thank you for your courtesy in helping to protect our employees.

We are asking all guests over the age of 65, or anyone with a compromised immune system, to please stay at home at this time. Just to be extra safe and cautious. 

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.

As an extra precaution, we will not be offering our pre-service heated herbal neck wraps at this time. Beverage services may be limited as well. Waiting rooms will be available for guests only if 6 feet of separation is possible. Otherwise, guests may be asked to wait outside or in their cars until their appointment time is ready. We apologize for any inconvenience or changes to the typical Spa Habitat experience.

Spa Employee Health.
All Spa Habitat employees who develop symptoms of coronavirus or other colds or flus, including fever, cough, shortness of breath, sinus issues or other related symptoms, or who have come into contact with anyone showing these symptoms, will be required to stay at home until healthy or cleared by a doctor. We will be taking the temperature of all spa employees, and anyone with a fever of over 99.9 will not be allowed to enter the facility.

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, or who have come into contact with anyone showing these symptoms, will not be permitted at Spa Habitat until symptoms are completely gone and 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.

Cancellation Policy.
During this time, Spa Habitat is allowing cancellations of spa appointments without any penalty, due to illness or concern about illness.

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