STEVENSVILLE, Md. — At Swan Cove Spa and Salon, they have been through it all: shut downs, open up a little, lose employees, gain some back.
Susan Morris is an aesthetician. She came here in April, right after the pandemic started.
"It's an interesting time to join the field."
Well, there's no time like the present. Before the pandemic, they had about 35 workers here, now they are trying to get back to that amount. With new cleaning protocols for many businesses making it a cumbersome transition, at spa's and salon's, it wasn't as tough a transition as other businesses.
"We have always maintained the highest levels and integrity for sanitation. So it was and easier progression probably for this industry because it always at the forefront," she explained.
The holidays are a stressful time, but we've been dealing with stress since March. A little time at the spa might be just the trick to get us back to normal.
"Maybe some mental wellness, a moment to step back from all the stress and especially the pressures on time that we all have this time of year," Morris said. "So I think everybody owes it to themselves to come in a steal a little moment for themselves."
They have spent nearly $15,000 on upgrades to keep the spa sanitary, all for the peace of mind for the costumers.
"We need to make all our clients feel comfortable," she said. "Just make them know we are doing everything we can to insure their safety as well as or employees."
Here at Swan Cove they want to remind you, you may not need a manicure or a treatment now, but pay it forward. Buy a gift card and use it later for yourself or give it to somebody for the holidays.
