Safe at Unwind

To our devoted community of friends, clients and staff,

Your health and wellness are our highest priority. To ensure the safety of our staff, clients and community, we have implemented the following protocols that exceed DC Health guidance for personal services establishments.

All staff must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19; those with a verified exemption must submit a bi-weekly COVID test with negative results.

Staff are required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times including N95, KN95, KF94 or ASTM Level 3 masks while performing treatments.

Clients are required to wear face coverings while in common areas of the spa. As needed, clients may remove or adjust their face coverings during treatments. Our front desk staff will be happy to provide complimentary face masks to clients that do not have one.

Touchless hand sanitizing dispensers have been placed in high-touch areas throughout the spa. 

Before the start of every shift, staff will undergo temperature and symptom screening, including the following

  • Since your last day of work, have you had any of these symptoms that are not attributable to another condition?
    • Fever
    • Chills
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing 
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Sore throat
    • Unexplained loss of taste or smell
    • Headache
    • Congestion or runny nose
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  • Have you recently been in contact with anyone who has developed these symptoms or tested positive for the coronavirus? 

Anyone who screens positive or develops symptoms will be refused entry and/or sent home for isolation and advised to seek appropriate medical care immediately. If a client feels unwell or develops any symptoms within 12 hours of an appointment, the cancellation charge will be waived, as the health and safety of our clients and staff is our priority.

Sanitizer stations with EPA-approved disinfectant and hand sanitizer are in all treatment rooms and throughout the spa. Our sanitizer stations are equipped with disinfecting and sanitizing products that are EPA-approved for use against the COVID-19 virus.

Unwind is professionally cleaned daily. Linens, wraps and towels are professionally cleaned after a single use. 

Air purifiers are in all treatment rooms and other areas in the spa. We use only medical grade H13 HEPA air purifiers that remove 99.97% of particles down to 0.1 microns. Our medical grade air purifiers clean 250 ft² in just 15 minutes.

Front desk staff regularly sanitize all high-touch areas. High-touch areas include all door knobs and handles, light switches, hand railings, bathroom and kitchen sink handles, toilet flushes, payment devices and the front desk itself.

We thoroughly sanitize treatment rooms, handles, door knobs, treatment equipment and head rests between appointments and always have fresh linens for every client.


Tea and water are always available upon request.

Contactless check-in, check-out and payments are carried out whenever possible.

 We strive to make Unwind safe for ourselves, our clients and our shared community. We know that some of these adjustments can be trying and we sincerely appreciate your adherence to our protocols. If you see something that you think is unsafe or if you feel that we can do something further, please notify the front desk or email us directly at
