Testimonials

Lisa Parlberg – 5 stars – 4/21/2018
Very knowledgeable and friendly owner.  We drove 110 miles to visit this place and it was worth every mile. My girlfriend and I got a little stressed the last 12 miles because we were running late ….the minute we stepped in the door our stress was immediately lifted. I hope my friends and family in the area will give themselves a gift and go visit the Urban Oasis Spa off Davison.

Jenn Bayer – 5 stars – 7/21/2018
Loved the salt room yoga. Why do more places not have this?! Such a great idea! The class was not too difficult and very relaxing. Really good teacher! Thank you for a great experience.

Beth Ann Wills-  5 stars – 5/8/2018
Because I am recovering from surgery having trouble sleeping and spent one hour last night in the cave and slept through the night. I breathe better and relax and realize it will be alright! Thank you for bringing this to town, Mr. Salty and Carol!

Ellen Morrison reviewed Urban Oasis Salt Spa — 5 stars – 6/14/2018
After a tough couple weeks, I was desperate for some self-care. I was able to schedule an appointment for the next day- and when I got there, I was able to add some much needed time to my massage. The massage itself was great. It was exactly what I needed! I will definitely visit Urban Oasis every time I’m in Traverse!

Janice Grzywacz reviewed Urban Oasis Salt Spa — 5 stars – 2/6/2018
It was the most relaxing hour ever and it went by so fast. Loved the heated neck pad and they even offered a lovely soft blanket if you wanted to cover up; Very nice. Will be back next time I’m in TC. Told some friends about it today and they are super excited to know you are so close.

Kir H., Naples, FL – 5 Stars – 8/12/2018
I travel a lot for work, so I am always trying new massage places-some great and some I wish I could get my money back from! This one was a pleasant surprise! Urban Oasis Salt Spa is accommodating, professional, friendly and knowledgeable! Denise was my massage therapist and she was a pro at customizing my session to fit my pain/relaxation needs! I prefer a medium-deep massage and she confirmed with me throughout my session that the pressure was right and that I felt relaxed! I will definitely be back to Urban Oasis Salt Spa!

I also met the owner on my way out! Friendly guy and passionate about his business! I can’t wait to go back and try the salt room!

Shelby C., Ann Arbor, MI – 5 Stars – 8/14/2018
Yes please!  You don’t think you want the salt room during your massage but you do!  It was great!  The atmosphere was relaxing and the staff friendly and knowledgeable.  The prices are intimidating but worth the experience.  I got a massage and detox of my hands.  Conveniently located next to a great hand salon.

Marcia S., Milford, MI – 5 Stars – 8/31/2018
Super nice place to relax! Denise is a wonderful and skilled massage therapist and the staff was very courteous!

Etiquette And Policies

Scheduling

Services are scheduled by appointment only. To accommodate today’s busy lifestyle we do often have same day appointments available. However, to ensure that we are able to accommodate your preferred appointment times, we ask that you schedule with as much advance notice as possible. All appointments are reserved with a credit card at the time of scheduling.

Cancellation Policy

24 hours’ notice is required to cancel or reschedule an appointment. Failure to cancel appointments at least 24 hours in advance or failure to show up for your appointment will result in a charge of 50% of the scheduled appointment fee which will be processed on the credit card retained on file to reserve appointment.

Payment

Full payment is due at time of service. We accept cash, checks & credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express)

Your First Visit

Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your first scheduled appointment. This allows you time to fill out our brief health intake form & enjoy our space for the first time without feeling rushed.

Arriving Late

If you are late to your session you are welcome to join in the next session. Once a session begins the door is shut for the duration of the salt treatment. Due to our tightly booked schedule we are generally unable to extend your session beyond your original appointment time. Regardless of the length of the service actually given, you will be responsible for payment of the full service you scheduled.

Gift Cards

Gift cards may be purchased for any value amount and are redeemable for massage services only- no cash value. Urban Oasis Salt Spa is not responsible for lost, stolen, unauthorized, card use or damaged cards. Cards may be replaced if a valid card number can be provided. Replacement cards will be the value if the card at the time we receive your report of loss, card damage, theft or unauthorized use.

Therapists

If you prefer either a male or female therapist you can request this at the time of booking your appointment. If you have enjoyed the services of a particular therapist on a prior visit, feel free to request that person.

Gratuities

Gratuities are not included in the price of our services and are always appreciated. All gratuities are at the client’s discretion, but are customarily 15-20% of the regular cost of service.

Health Considerations

Please inform us at time of scheduling of any health conditions, allergies, special needs or concerns you have. Your safety is important to us & some services may not be appropriate for certain conditions.

Sick Policy

In an effort to maintain a healthy environment, we ask that if you are sick (which includes a fever, the flu, etc.) or have onset of symptoms of an illness that you reschedule your appointment. If you arrive for your appointment with symptoms of an illness, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment. This is for your wellbeing as well as the health of our employees, therapists and clients. Getting a massage while you are sick is not advised. While in the early and acute stages of a sickness, a massage can accelerate the onset of the infection and intensify its severity (via additional circulation of blood and lymph). If you get a massage after the infection has peaked, you may experience a relapse of symptoms and feel sick again. Please wait until you have been well for at least a week before getting your massage. If you do need to cancel your appointment, please call us as soon as possible and we will be happy to reschedule your appointment for a time when you are feeling better.

Communicate Your Preferences

Be sure to speak up. All aspects of your massage session can be modified to your preference: pressure (too light or too deep), lighting in the room, style of music, temperature, and whether or not you choose to have a conversation or enjoy the treatment in silence.

Cell phone Usage

In our effort to maintain a relaxing & tranquil atmosphere for clients, we ask that all cell phones and pagers be silenced or turned off upon entering our center. Cell phone use is not permitted beyond the reception area.

Insurance Billing

We do not offer direct insurance billing but can provide a coded receipt for your session that you may be able to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. A prescription from your doctor or chiropractor is typically required. You must contact your health insurance provider to verify that massage therapy is a covered plan benefit and for instruction on how to submit your claim. You are responsible for payment at the time of service.

Fragrance-Free Policy

Recognizing that some of our staff, therapists and clients have sensitives and/or allergic reactions to various synthetic fragrances, we have a Fragrance-Free Policy. In an effort to create the healthiest environment possible for everyone, we request that you refrain from wearing perfume, scented lotions, body sprays or other similar products while at our center (more specifically: any product that emits a distinctly noticeable scent).
