We hope this finds you and your family in good health. Many things have changed since we made the decision to temporarily close on March 16th, but one thing has remained consistent: our commitment to the health of our staff and clients. We know that you count on us as a part of your overall wellness, and that these past months have been difficult for everyone. Now that Allegheny County has entered the green phase, we are all excited to get back to work and see all of you again.
Our top priority is to create a safe space for clients and staff alike, which is why we won’t be reopening immediately. We have been working hard to design and implement new protocols and safety measures, based on the guidelines provided by the CDC, OSHA, and The Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB). Just some of the measures include:
- Rearranging the spa for social distancing
- Staggering schedules so we can maintain a safe number of people in the spa at all times
- Installing touchless dispensers for hand sanitizer, soap, and paper towels
- Implementing new protocols for client interaction
- More rigorous disinfecting
- Gathering PPE for all of our therapists
We appreciate your support and patience as we’ve navigated these uncharted waters towards making the spa as safe as possible. By delaying our opening, we are also able to watch the number of Covid-19 cases to ensure that we are not opening too early. If all goes according to plan, and the numbers hold, we hope to reopen in early July.
As for scheduling, we will first be reaching out to all of our clients that we had to cancel in March, April and May. While we were planning to start open scheduling on June 22nd, things have been pushed back. Please continue to check back for updates. Services will be by appointment only and some will be temporarily unavailable due to safety and sanitation concerns.
In the midst of our Country struggling with illness, isolation and social injustice we crave love, compassion and community. Your friends at Centre Ave. Massage and Spa want to be there for you and look forward to being able to do so. Please take care of yourself and we will see you soon.
Below is our donation button for those of you that feel inspired to continue to support the bodyworkers that you love as we prepare to reopen. All proceeds will be distributed directly to the staff and no amount is too small.
Thank you for your love and support. Be safe and be well.

At Centre Ave. Massage & Spa, we believe that a significant change toward healing begins with a person's awareness. Massage and other holistic therapies allow the client to experience balance, harmony and relief, giving them perspective and self knowledge to make a proactive change.
Our team of professionals is highly trained to address muscular imbalances and postural problems, chronic pain, stress management, inflexibility and the enhancement of athletic performance.
Through specialized massage techniques, strengthening and stretching sessions, we help our clients achieve their healthy lifetime goals, all in a relaxing and therapeutic setting.
Centre Ave Massage & Spa is located in the Shadyside area of Pittsburgh and is a locally- and woman-owned business.
