Thank you for visiting our website and checking out the safety measures we are implementing during this time, while we are re-opening our spa to allow our customers to take advantage of the many health benefits of our services, while also making sure we are providing an environment that is as safe and healthy as possible.

We ask everyone to please be as responsible and considerate of others as possible and to take all necessary precautions, and comply with city and state recommendations on personal protective equipment (face mask), keeping distance from others wherever possible and using increased personal hygiene measures (washing hands, using hand sanitizers) as much as possible.

Even if you are "not worried", please consider that others may be, and our respect and care makes this time easier for everyone. If you feel sick or unwell or have been in contact with anyone who tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 2 weeks, please do not visit our spa. We will be there for you again, when you are well and not in quarantine.
Thank You for your understanding and cooperation!

Here are the measures we are specifically taking—in addition to state/city required guidelines—to keep you safe and make our spa experience as enjoyable to everyone as possible:

General Measures

  • All employees will wear face masks as they interact with our customers
  • Customers are required by city ordinance to wear face masks in public areas.
    We trust our customers to comply with this recommendation.
    Masks can be taken off in treatment rooms that are private (ionic foot bath, sauna) once you are by yourself, as well as in the salt cave once the session has begun.
  • Hard surfaces, chairs, door knobs, etc. will be cleaned and disinfected regularly and between client sessions
  • Massages have additional rules imposed by the state and city. We will comply with all of them. Please ask your therapist, if you have any questions.
  • Scheduling: we will make every effort to schedule services in a way that minimizes the likelihood for groups of people in close proximity
  • We will limit the total number of people in our building at all times

Salt Cave

  • Chairs in the Salt Cave are spaced out to allow for about 6' of distance between participants
  • Maximum number of participants in the cave is limited
  • We will allow members of different groups in the salt cave but will seat them at different ends of the room
  • Unfortunately, we cannot provide blankets for all participants. If you want to bring your own blanket, you can. 
  • Chairs will be sanitized between sessions.
  • Salt cave sessions may need to be slightly shorter than usual (45 minutes instead of 50 minutes) to allow for additional cleaning between sessions. We will try to be as efficient as possible
  • If you have a larger group coming to the cave together, we highly recommend booking a private session, ensuring that only your group is in the cave together. In that case we can accommodate slightly larger groups. Please call.

Ionic Foot Bath

  • For right now all foot bath sessions are private, so we can accommodate up to 3 people, but they need to be all from the same group.
    Chairs are spaced far enough to comply with social distancing rules, but we are trying to be extra careful, at least at the moment.
    So: If you are booking for multiple people, please make sure you book the entire group as one booking, or call us. Our online booking system will consider all seats to be taken as soon as one booking is made.

Infrared Sauna

  • Sauna sessions always have been limited to one group, so they will continue to be so.
  • Sauna temperature will stay at 140 degrees or higher to maximize the anti-bacterial and potentially anti-viral effects of the heat
  • Surfaces will be disinfected between sessions
  • We will try to be as efficient as possible with our additional cleaning, but please be understanding if timing may sometimes slip a bit and your session may start a couple minutes late--we will do our best!

Massage

  • Massages have additional rules imposed by the state and city. We will comply with all of them. Please ask your therapist, if you have any questions.
  • One rule may make it impossible for us to use the heated blanket underneath the regular sheets during massages. Instead we will have a space heater in the room to keep you cozy and comfortable. We are also looking for additional options and guidance from the county to resolve this. Thank you for your understanding.

Other Services

  • Group events, and some healing services (Chakra Clearing, Sound Healing) may not be available yet for some time
  • We respect every practitioner's and workshop leader's own timing and preferences
  • Some events may start to be available sometime in June. Our newsletter will keep you updated. Things may change!

What You can do to Help

  • Please arrive early to all your treatments; 15 minutes early is highly recommended
    There are additional forms to fill out for every visit. Yes, it may be that you will have to wait a bit, but it may be impossible for us to accommodate late-comers at all at this time. We hope you understand.
  • Please do NOT come if you are sick, coughing or have been in contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19; We hope this is self-explanatory and thank you for your cooperation.
  • Please be respectful and kind; many people have different views, fears, opinions and concerns during this time. We feel lucky that we have the beautiful services of our spa available and want to share them with everyone who wants them, irrespective of their opinions, fears and concerns about the current crisis.
  • Please also take responsibility for your own well-being. If you feel that this is not the time for you to go out and use our services (or anyone else's) please stay home. We fully respect your own judgement and we will be there for you, when you are ready. Our purpose is to serve your well-being and we love and respect you for who you are!

Love,
Your 5 Star Salt Caves Team
