Our new community policies to promote safety for all.
During these past months of uncertainty and change, we have been looking forward to the day when we can welcome guests back to Wat Massage. We are excited to announce that we are reopening our spa on Monday, 6/22/2020.
As we navigate life with additional requirements and modify existing measures due to the coronavirus, please help us to support all of our clients and our team by cooperating with some new requirements:
We follow massage and bodywork guidelines for practice recommended by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB) along with infection control recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Phase 2 re-open guidelines from DC Health.
On your next appointment you will see the following safety protocols incorporated for everyone's safety.
After booking your appointment you will receive an email with forms that must be completed online prior to your appointment. Once completed, these forms will be part of your profile.
1 - Health Intake Form
2 - Policies & Procedures
3 - COVID-19 Precautionary Form
We recommend you arrive five (5) minutes prior your appointment with a protection mask. The mask must be worn during your entire visit, if you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you.
If you are not feeling well, or have symptoms, please cancel and re-schedule your appointment for a later time. Cancellation penalty will be waived.
At the entrance desk, we will ask you to use hand sanitizer provided to you. You will also be asked if developed new symptoms since booking your appointment and if you have completed the required forms.
We will be taking your body temperature. Normal temperature ranges from 97-99 degrees. If your body temperature is higher than 100 degrees, we will confirm it by trying three times. If it's consistent, you will be asked to re-schedule your appointment to another day.
Your massage therapist will then be ready to escort you to the restroom to wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds. Once that is done, you will be escorted to the therapy room to begin your session.
Massage Therapist will be assigned to one room.
Additional in-between clients time has increased to give them enough time to make sure the therapy room is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
The therapy room will be deep cleaned and sanitized prior to each client. Table blankets will only be provided if requested by client.
All dirty laundry will be removed after each client.
Massage Therapist will wash hands thoroughly prior to starting the session. Disposable gloves are optional to wear.
Each room will have hand sanitizer available to use as needed.
Each room will have an air purifier.
You have the commitment from everyone that we will follow all recommended safety protocols:
A mask will be worn during the entire shifts.
Our body temperature will be checked twice a day.
Our team members will be wearing a mask the entire time.
Washing hands for a minimum of 20 seconds at the start and end of a treatment/service
