First, we hope you and your loved ones are healthy and finding moments of Grace and Ease in the midst of all that is going on. Everyone here is healthy and it seems the common theme has been “deep reflection” – a time to really go inwards and examine our lives on all levels. 

As I’m sure you know, the province has a phased plan to begin re-opening businesses and we’re working to establish protocols to ensure that you’re able to enjoy the relaxation and healing that HÄLSA offers in a safe way. 

Because of the close quarters massages take place in, we won’t be booking hands-on treatments until at least mid-June but we will be open by appointment only for floats and saunas starting Thursday, May 21st. We’ll be easing into our schedule and will be open Thursday – Monday to begin.

The nature of our business allows lots of physical distancing and if we all do our part, we’re confident that we can offer our environment for self care in a safe, controlled way. 

Some of the things we’re doing to ensure a safe return:

  1. First and foremost: If you’re feeling at all unwell, please do not come in! We’re waiving our cancellation fees in the event of sickness but if you come in and are obviously ill (coughing, fever, sneezing, etc…) we’ll turn you away at the door.
  2. We will be leaving more time between appointments to ensure that all rooms are thoroughly cleaned. We use a Health Canada approved, botanically derived disinfectant for all touch surfaces and stabilised ozone inside our float rooms. This means we’ll need to shorten floats to 80 minutes to accommodate.
  3. We ask you to maintain physical distance when in HÄLSA
  4. We’ll continue to keep all common areas clean and sanitized regularly.

We look forward to welcoming you back in. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns, and as always, we wish you radiant health!

Your Friends at HÄLSA
