As a Hawaiian Experience Spa Massage Therapist your main role is to provide an exceptional relaxation or therapeutic spa experience to every guest every time. Since we offer our guests a large selection of services ranging from therapeutic to relaxation to spa treatment experiences, you will have lots of variety throughout the day. Full time therapists have opportunities to learn spa operations to prepare you for any career path in the spa industry.
Responsibilities and Duties for Massage Therapists
- Provide exceptional massages and spa treatments – you must be a committed healer.
- Greeting guests in the spa lounge and escorting them to the treatment room. All guests are already wearing robes, so they do not need to change in the room, saving you time.
- Reviewing guests’ medical forms and asking follow-up questions so you are prepared to provide the best experience for that guest.
- Writing complete treatment notes.
- Getting guests to realize the benefit of regular massage therapy.
- Setting up your treatment room neatly.
- Cleaning your treatment room after each visit.
- While we have dedicated spa managers and spa administrators who handle appointment making, guest services, cleaning, etc. all ‘ohana help out in these areas as needed if they are in the spa. Full time therapists typically remain in the spa during their shifts providing opportunities to learn all aspects of spa operations over time. Therapists highly interested in operations can receive accelerated training in these areas. These skills can prepare you for limitless opportunities in the spa industry. Part time therapists typically come and go between services, so they don’t learn the operations end except by special request.

COVID-19 and Safety
Long before the current situation, Hawaiian Experience Spa’s number one concern has been the health and safety of our ‘ohana. Providing a positive work experience is one of our three key tenants and is shown in our Spirit of Aloha Commitment above. Some of standard our safety practices include:
- The use of organic oils, lotions and other products to reduce your exposure to toxins.
- Obtaining full name, address and other contact information for all guests before allowing them to get services.
- Immediately and permanently banning from all of our spas any guest who acts inappropriate with a therapist. We have zero tolerance for this issue.
- Always having a trained staff at the spa in addition to the therapists.
- Making all therapists regular employees so you receive various protections under the law including workers compensation insurance for injuries, unemployment insurance, liability insurance and other protections not afforded to independent contractors.
- Providing regular inspections of, and maintenance of, all tables and spa equipment.
- Full disinfecting and cleaning protocols for all spa surfaces, equipment, sheets, etc.
- Offering of health insurance, disability insurance and other benefits.
During this pandemic we have, of course, enhanced some of our safety measures by increasing cleaning frequency, staggering appointments, maintain common area social distancing, giving therapists the option to wear masks, etc. While we cannot change the nature of the close physical contact inherent with our profession, and cannot eliminate all risks, we believe our ongoing safety protocols make for a safe and healthy work environment.
