You might be wondering if it’s safe to get a massage right now. The short answer is: YES. Life can be a bit stressful these days, but fortunately, you can melt the stress away by booking a relaxing massage at Spa Solai. At Spa Solai here in Tucson, we’ve been working with an infectious disease expert to ensure the well-being of our staff, clients, and community. Here’s a look at what you can expect and how we’re working to keep everyone safe.
Massage Therapy During COVID
A lot of people are feeling stressed out these days, which is why it’s more important than ever to find ways to relieve that stress. A professional massage can help you relax and take a break from your everyday life. Plus, massage therapy is shown to reduce cortisol levels, and serve as an effective antidote to anxiety and stress. This makes it the ideal wellness treatment during this time.
Did you know that massage therapy can also improve your physical well-being? It can be a lifeline for patients who struggle with chronic pain and other symptoms caused by arthritis, fibromyalgia, and similar conditions. With massage therapy, individuals can gain better mobility, range of motion of joints, and flexibility. What’s more, massage therapy has been clinically shown to improve the activity of lymphocytes, which is essential for a healthy immune system response.
Spa Solai is reducing the number of guests at our locations to help maintain a safer and more comfortable environment. If you arrive early for your appointment, simply call us from your car to let us know you’re here. We also request that you only book a massage if you are feeling well, have not tested positive, and have not knowingly been exposed to an infected person recently. If you do develop symptoms or become exposed, please call to cancel and reschedule your appointment. We’re waiving all cancellation fees until further notice, so don’t worry if you need to cancel and reschedule for another time. We are happy to accommodate our clients so everyone can enjoy a relaxing massage when the time is right.
To protect our clients and staff, Spa Solai requires everyone to wear a mask inside our locations whenever possible.
We recognize that social distancing isn’t always possible inside a massage spa. In order to create some social distancing, we are now staggering our appointments so that no more than 3 to 4 people are in the lobby where we have spaced out the chairs. In addition, we have installed plexiglass barriers at the front desks to help clients and staff practice social distancing within our lobby. We encourage everyone to maintain a six-foot distance within the lobby area.
Hand hygiene is critical during the pandemic, and so we have re-trained all staff members on best hand hygiene practices. These practices were informed by our infectious disease consultant, so you can feel confident that your massage experience is as safe as possible. In addition, if you would like your massage therapist to wear disposable gloves, please don’t hesitate to ask! You are always in good hands here at Spa Solai.
Spa Solai has always been a leader in promoting public health. Our massage therapists and staff members are required to stay home if they are not feeling well, so we can maintain a safe and healthy environment at all times. In addition, each staff member receives a temperature check at the start of each shift. If your massage therapist does need to go home, we’ll be happy to connect you with another qualified massage therapist or to reschedule your appointment if you prefer.
It has always been our practice to thoroughly clean client surfaces after each appointment. We’ve stepped up our disinfecting procedures even more to ensure the well-being of our clientele. Spa Solai is using a medical-grade disinfectant to thoroughly sanitize all client surfaces both before and after each appointment. We’re continuing our practice of thoroughly laundering and disinfecting all linens. We pride ourselves on maintaining a clean, healthy, and comfortable environment.
In addition to these disinfecting procedures, Spa Solai has invested in ultraviolet (UV) light technology to better protect everyone. The UV light is used after each appointment to thoroughly sanitize all soft and hard surfaces. It’s the same technology used to disinfect operating rooms in hospitals, so you can feel comfortable any time you visit our spa for a rejuvenating massage treatment.
We understand these can be trying times, and we want you to know how much we appreciate your patience and understanding. Spa Solai is humbled to have such a loyal clientele in the Tucson community. If there is anything else, we can do to help you be more comfortable or feel safer while you’re with us, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Our goal is to help you relax and feel fantastic during your appointment, and long after you leave.
