Sanctuary Spa Re-Opening Sanitation and Hygiene Standards

Sabrina Spa Notes

Sanctuary Spa is now offering facials, waxing, massage, nano brow, nano lip and yoni steam services in addition to selling retail products online for curbside pickup or shipping. We are not offering hydrotherapy services at this time.

Sanctuary Spa consistently maintains a high standard of cleanliness and sanitation. Given the current COV-ID 19 pandemic, we have reevaluated every aspect of sanitation to ensure the safety of our team and guests.

Below covers our requirements and guidance for effectively sanitizing and disinfecting our spa and interactions between employees and guests to reduce the spread of communicable diseases, as much as possible. All employees coming back to work have signed off on the below commitments.

Materials and Safety Precautions

All of these items are available at the spa:

  • Face Masks
    • Employees will wear cloth masks with filters
    • All guests will wear their own masks in the common areas of the spa. We will provide disposable masks if they don’t have their own.
  • Face Shields
    • Technicians will wear, as appropriate, during services
  • Disposable Gloves
  • Citrus II Hospital Grade Disinfectant
  • Opti-Cide3 Disinfectant
  • Barbacide
  • Meyer’s All-Purpose Cleaners
  • Method All-Purpose Cleaner
  • Bleach
  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • No-Touch Waste Bins
  • Hand Sanitizer (available throughout the spa)

Prior to Reopening

We have systematically and thoroughly deep cleaned every inch of the spa using soap and hospital grade disinfectants. We have laundered all linens. We have fully stocked the spa with the above items.

We have trained and educated all of our employees on new sanitation standards, guest interactions, and safety materials.

After Reopening

We have implemented the following measures to ensure we continue to uphold our high level of sanitation while also incorporating extra measures as per guidance from local, state and national regulatory and medical bodies.

Although we have a warm culture and are used to greetings and farewells filled with hugs, handshakes and touch, we will require non-contact methods going forward.

We appreciate our guests’ cooperation as we make the following adjustments:

  • There will be at least 30 minutes between each service, giving the technician more than enough time to thoroughly disinfect each room.
  • Start and end times for services will be staggered to limit the number of guests in the lobby at any particular time.
  • Guest intake forms will be available online and sent to you on your appointment day, thereby eliminating the need for paper forms.
  • Guests will let guest care or technician pick out products for purchase. We have also removed testers at this time.
  • Extra people will not be able to come in with a guest.


  • Will need to stay home if sick.
  • Will come to work wearing their own mask, when they get to the spa, they will:
    • Immediately sanitize their hands

  • Will self-report and stay home from work 14 days after the last day they were in close contact with someone with Coronavirus
