Spa Safety During Covid-19
Brennan Massage & Spa has been re-opened for just over 8 weeks. We have restructured our business in an effort to follow the many guidelines that have been made for our industry and to keep everyone as safe as possible. We are feeling confident in these changes as we have seen them working well over the past few months.
The first updates we made were to require mask-wearing in all services by staff and customers. Facial sessions were an exception — the customer was not required to wear a mask but the employee was masked and shielded. As of recent updates, we are no longer offering facial care because of the inability of the customer to wear a mask in a facial session.
The next guidelines we have enforced are frequent hand sanitizing (for clients and staff) and thorough room cleansing after each service. High traffic areas in the spa, such as the reception room, bathrooms, and stairway are cleaned every 2 hours.
Services that created excessive laundry like our Sunflower Honey Drenched Massage and services that required multiple customers and staff in a room together such as our Four-Handed Massage or Couples Massage have been temporarily paused. We hope that we can introduce these services again in the Spring of 2021.
The 3rd change to our business has been to our hours of operation. We have extended them slightly. This update creates more space in the business for customers and less employee interaction. With this change our customer capacity has also been reduced, again this is to enforce the need for space between customer and staff cross over.
At this time, we are seeing these regulations and updates work really well to keep customers and staff safe. We are glad to be open and able to provide stress-reducing services during this very difficult time. The appreciation our customers have shown has been worth all the hard work and adjustments that were needed for services to resume.
