Sanitation is extremely important for spas, especially regarding their facility, equipment used and the handwashing of employees. In exfoliation treatments, dead skin cells are shed and must be cleaned up. Lots of equipment used comes in contact with your skin and body, such as the hot stones used in a massage or the nails tools used for a manicure. As we are a luxury health spa, VeraVia ensures that all products, tools and equipment used are sanitized and thoroughly cleaned before and after each guest.

Our high standards of cleanliness includes hand-washing as well. Each of our wellness team members is required to wash their hands before and after each guest and use gloves when necessary. This is part of our commitment to helping each guest reach their full potential and optimal health during their stay at VeraVia.

By only allowing a maximum of ten guests at a time, our wellness retreat is able maintain this high standard of cleanliness. With smaller groups of guests, we have ample time to clean everything from the treatment rooms and equipment.

But you don’t have to take just our word for it – Listen to our past guests!

Furthermore, each guest at our health retreat enjoys a private, one bedroom at a luxury, 5-Star hotel during their stay. Providing each guest with their own room helps protect the immunity and health of each guest.


2. Look at the Treatments Offered

Once you’ve determined that a health spa iis properly maintained, you can start looking at their offered treatments to see if they have the proper luxury health spa experience you want. VeraVia’s luxury spa offers facials, massages, eye masks and more!

Fortunately, at VeraVia, you can communicate with a specialist to see which products, treatments or services they recommend for your health concerns. For example, if you have dry skin, one of our estheticians can recommend a hydrating facial to moisturize your skin.

VeraVia customizes the experience for each guest, ensuring the best care and results. There may be wellness treatments that you could benefit from that you may not have even thought of yourself! One of our doctors provides low-level laser therapy to reduce chronic pain and inflammation.  If you have a wellness goal or health challenge, we encourage you to share that with us so we can tailor your experience to be successful.
