Face coverings are required in public areas per Sedona Mayoral Proclamation
We are also making changes to our physical space and services procedures to ensure the safety of our community. Health and safety have always been the top priority to NAMTI Spa and will continue to be so. Your support is how we’ve kept our doors open for 20 years in Sedona, providing a sanctuary for wellness, beauty, & relaxation. We would like to share our reopening protocols that will maintain a safe, sanitary environment for everyone.
Key points to be mindful of:
- If you are at a higher risk of severe illness, you should avoid visiting salons and spas at this time. Our spa is very large and we have upwards of 100 appts per day so while we do adhere to sanitation standards we do have much higher numbers of clients visiting per day than other Sedona spas.
- In preparation of your appointment, please take a moment to check in with how well you feel. If have had a temperature within 72 hours, have a cough or respiratory symptoms, or are under quarantine due to exposure or travel, please reschedule or cancel by phone 928-282-7737 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Face coverings are required in all public areas within Sedona city limits. Please read above proclamation for details. So we do require masks in the lobby, hallways, bathrooms and in the Nail Salon. Therapy rooms are private areas, masks by client discretion. It is recommended by the AZ state boards to wear masks and gloves when possible.
- We are adjusting our schedule and our lobbies / lounges so that we stay within guidelines of social distancing (6ft or more).
- Please do not bring anyone with you to your appointment. We are limiting the number of people in the building, which could possibly mean you stay in your car until your therapist calls you in.
- We will greet you with a smile, but sadly, no hugs or handshakes. We will miss this personal interaction, although air-hugs and Namaste are definitely welcomed.
- Our entire staff has been required to complete new courses in hygiene and sanitation and again, we are adhering to all state issued sanitation standards.
- We will have our staff members retrieve any products from the shelves for your purchase and bag them for you. Due to sanitation we will not be able to issue refunds on products at this time.
- Hand sanitizer will be provided for staff and clients in every room, at our front desk and at Sanitation Stations throughout the spa. Our staff has spray sanitizer to consistently sanitize common areas.
- Please bring your own water or drinks to your session to avoid unnecessary touch. Our front desk will have cups for water and are happy to get you some if need be but prefer to minimize contact.
If you have questions, please feel free to ask. We are all navigating this together. We extend our gratitude to you for being so understanding and being a kind supporter of small business and a loyal client to NAMTI Spa.
We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Jeff McGrath & staff

Governor ends stay-at-home order, sets new order and guidance
Post Date: 05/12/2020 6:22 p.m.
SEDONA, Ariz. – Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced the current stay-at-home order will expire on May 15, 2020 and a new Executive Order will begin on May 16, 2020, and gave new guidance for pools, spas, gyms and major league sports in this announcement:
Governor Doug Ducey today announced that the Stay At Home order in Arizona will be ending on May 15 and replaced by new guidance for the next stage of economic recovery. The new guidance aligns with gating criteria issued by the White House and Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and aims to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 resurgence, protect vulnerable populations, and guide the reopening of businesses with enhanced physical distancing and safety measures in place.
Arizona’s new Executive Order, which takes effect on Saturday, May 16, builds on Arizona’s comprehensive efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect public health, including: ramping up testing availability and frequency; implementing tracking of key health metrics such as reported symptomatic cases and emergency room usage; standing up surge hospital capacity to be used as needed; expanding statewide contact tracing; bolstering supply chains for personal protective equipment for frontline medical workers and emergency responders; implementing enhanced safety protocols to protect those living and working in high-risk facilities such as nursing homes; and providing public health guidance for businesses and individuals to ensure continued physical distancing.
“Since the start of this pandemic, Arizona has taken a calm and steady approach to protecting health and slowing the spread of COVID-19,” said Governor Ducey. “Today, our hospitals have capacity to provide care to those who need it; our businesses are implementing and adapting to new physical distancing measures; and data shows Arizona is headed in the right direction. It is time to move forward with the next steps of Arizona’s economic recovery — while continuing to make health and safety our number one priority. I’m grateful to all Arizonans for their partnership and cooperation during these trying times. By continuing to follow the data and recommendations of public health officials, we can continue to move forward safely and responsibly together.”
Governor Ducey also announced today an accelerated plan to test all staff and residents of long-term care facilities as well as individuals within Arizona’s prisons. As part of this plan, the Arizona Department of Health Services will partner with private-sector labs to expand testing to 147 long-term care facilities and provide antibody tests for correctional officers. Additionally, major league sports can resume limited reopening, without fans, this Saturday, May 16.
The Arizona Department of Health Services also released additional guidance for businesses and customers as more industries resume partial operations. This guidance includes:
- Pools, with physical distancing and enhanced sanitation – can reopen Wednesday, May 13 (guidance)
- Gyms & Fitness Providers, with physical distancing and enhanced sanitation – can reopen Wednesday, May 13 (guidance)
- Spas, with physical distancing and enhanced sanitation – can reopen Wednesday, May 13 ()
While never formally closed, many places of worship opted to temporarily change or suspend services in order to follow physical distancing guidelines. As they resume operations, the Arizona Department of Health Services released guidance for enhanced physical distancing and safety precautions.
