Our employees will do you the same courtesy and will not work with potentially contagious illnesses.
As of 2/25/22 the CDC changed masking guidelines for COVID-19 to recommend that mask wearing is optional in areas of low to medium community spread as defined by hospitalization rates. We have use the CDC to help inform our mask policies from the beginning of the pandemic. As Polk County is considered to be an area of low transmission per the new metrics, we are making masks OPTIONAL for guests.
Our employees may continue to mask due to their personal preferences. We are ALWAYS happy to mask upon request. Some reasons we might mask or guests might request a masked provider:
We have always been proud to appropriately sanitize spa tools, linens, and surfaces. This is what you can ALWAYS expect at East Village Spa:
We cannot see guests who are sick with any potentially contagious illness, with a rash or skin condition (including poison ivy or skin infection,) a fever for any reason, or with concerns that warrant medical attention should reschedule. This is for the provider safety, but also for YOUR safety! Some illnesses or skin conditions can be made worse with spa services. If you aren't sure if you are safe to receive a service, please call us to ask.
Some skincare services have specific contraindications that are noted in service descriptions, for example, use of some products, certain medications, current pregnancy, or sun exposure. Please read descriptions.
Our services providers are trained, educated, and licensed. We ask guests to complete initial health history forms before facials, massage therapy, and waxing. We also ask guests to update this information periodically. These forms help us to customize your service to best address your needs, but also look for contraindications including medications or products that could cause interactions or require a service modification.
Please contact us in advance if you are not sure if a health or skin issue you have may require you to postpone your visit with us. We appreciate treatment forms done electronically in advance of your visit, as this will allow your provider to identify any potential concerns and suggest an alternative treatment for you.
