THE NEW BODHI EXPERIENCE
Spa Policies & Guidelines
Due to the ever increasing risk of both Influenza and COVID -19, and the infection control associated with both. We have put into place a 'New Preventative Sick Policy' at Bodhi Tree Spa. It is important that you understand, these new policies were put into place to protect the health and wellness of both guests, as well as our staff and future visitors.
If you are visiting, please let us know if you have travelled outside of Canada within the past 4 weeks. You may be required to divulge information if you have travelled to specific counties of concern via alberta.ca
(Grand Princess Cruise Ship / Iran / Italy / China)
To ensure the highest standard of care, and to ease your concerns. We have always practised the highest cleaning & disinfecting protocols. However, please be reassured we have also heightened precautionary measures. This includes:
~ Increased frequency in disinfecting areas of personal contact.
~ Re-usable personal cups/mugs will no longer be allowed in the spa. As much as we strive to stand by our environmental commitments, we ask that all guests use a fresh glass for each beverage when enjoying any of our complimentary beverages in the lounge.
~ Testers of any product will no longer be available for use at the spa. This is to prevent the cross contamination between use of products.
~ New 'Preventative Sick Policy' (please see details below) to prevent any guests, and or staff with illness to risk infecting others.
~ Please be reassured that Bodhi Tree Spa has always practised the highest standard of cleaning & disinfecting protocols. We use medical grade disinfectants, sterilizers, and follow all protocols required by Health Canada. All linens are washed after every use, and never reused before they are thoroughly cleaned.
PREVENTATIVE SICK POLICY/TRAVEL POLICY:
~If you are sick or show signs of any illness, we kindly ask that you stay at home. We reserve the right to respectfully refuse any service to those that arrive showing even the mildest of symptoms.
We have also placed a 'Sick Policy' within our employees to respect those same preventative measures towards our guests. We kindly ask that you please be understanding, especially in this time of uprising concerns that we are taking zero risks. Although we will do everything we can to get another therapist to cover, should an employee fall ill, we may not always be able to fulfill your appointments.
*We reserve the right to respectfully refuse any service to those that arrive showing any symptoms, or have travelled outside of Canada to countries of concern within the past 14 days (Grand Princess Cruise Ship / Iran / Italy / China). You may be required to divulge information if you have travelled outside of Canada.

~ Bodhi Tree Spa has also restricted travel within our employees at this time, and have asked everyone to postpone any travel outside or within Canada until further notice. We will continue to monitor the severity of this outbreak and adjust our policies as needed. Thank you for your patience, and continuing to put your trust in us to provide you with the best possible care.
-The Team at Bodhi Tree Spa
Please arrive a minimum of 10 minutes prior to your scheduled treatment time to ensure your full experience of the treatment booked. Unfortunately no matter how late you arrive, your treatment will conclude at the scheduled time, and full charges will apply. This is necessary to ensure that the next guests appointment is not affected. If arriving late, your treatment will be customized to accommodate the remaining time.
Our spa amenities include a steam room and coed spa lounge serving organic Aveda comfort tea. Our steam room is complimentary to those guests having a minimum 1 hr. Massage Facial or Body Treatment. We recommend arriving a minimum of 30-40 minutes prior to the start of your treatment to enjoy the full benefits of a steam. Our facilities are co-ed so please remember your bathing suit.
Please be mindful of noise upon arriving at the spa. Our environment is of a tranquil setting, and guests will be enjoying treatments in nearby rooms. Please keep your voices to a minimum when talking in our common spa space, and turn off all electronic devices to avoid disturbing other guests.
