Spot inspection in wellness centers in Baguio proposed
by PIO release

The city council approved a resolution requesting the City Health Services Office to conduct regular spot inspections of massage parlors, spas, or similar establishments offering massage or nail cleaning services in the city and to submit its report to the local legislative body within 30 days upon its approval.

The resolution authored by Councilor Elaine D. Sembrano stated that it is the responsibility of the government to protect its citizens from acts and practices that compromise their health and to ensure that the conduct of all services are in accordance to standards provided for by laws, rules, and regulations.

The resolution added proper hygiene and cleaning or sterilizing of all things used in the conduct of massage and nail cleaning services must be guaranteed to protect clients from health hazards.

It added that owners of establishments offering such services should protect their clients from illnesses.

Sembrano said the services availed of by people in massage parlors involve physical contact and the use of things or items that are directly applied, used, or in contact with the skin.

She said massage and nail cleaning are some of the health services offered as a business activity in different parts of the city and there is a need for the concerned offices of the local government to take precautionary measures to protect the public from being exposed to hazards that will compromise their health condition.

The CHSO was tasked to report its findings on the state of massage parlors, spas, and other similar establishments so that proper actions could be done.

Sembrano said it is best for the massage parlors, spas, and other similar establishments to observe the highest standards in their businesses.

She called on those availing of such services to patronize those that provide quality services.
