Massage Studio Soundproofing

massage studio

A massage studio in Los Angeles reached out to us about a problem they were having with their privacy curtains. While the curtains kept clients from seeing each other, it didn’t stop them from hearing each other. Whether it was a couple trying to talk to one another or a client talking to their masseuse, the conversations weren’t private. After hearing about their problem, we decided to get involved and help them fix this by soundproofing the massage studio.

Soundproof Curtains Used for Massage Studio

When we consulted for the client, we took measurements and analyzed the location’s acoustics inside. We addressed any noise problems and ran through various solutions. While they had no reverberation issues in the space, there was a considerable lack of speech privacy between adjacent massage spaces. The client could not hold a quiet conversation without being disrupted by another client next door. This meant that they needed a sound-blocking layer between the spaces.

Keeping the Original Spa Design

Instead of our client having to seek out a contractor that would have given them something costly and lengthy, we came in and offered them a better solution; customized soundproof curtains for a fraction of the price, and installed in less than a day.

We went out to LA with their custom curtains already made. All that was needed to do once we arrived, was install the product and tailor it to their specific needs. We were able to use the existing track hardware, and clip the curtain grommets in to the carriers.

When their massage rooms were just divided by regular curtains, it took away from the privacy and tranquil service that they offered but couldn’t give fully to their customer. We helped them achieve the best quality service they could offer.


Other Fixes for Spa Sounds

If this massage studio wanted to implement more soundproofing methods they could use sound masking machines along with the curtains. We sell white noise machines on our sister company’s website Soundproof Direct, but they could use other types of noise machines. In order to provide even more sound privacy for their clients, they could place a spa sounds machine in each massage area.

We mentioned earlier that sound reverberation wasn’t an issue for this particular space. If you have a space where that is a problem, we suggest installing sound absorbing panels on the ceilings or walls.

They were able to give their customers the relaxing treatments they desired, and we were able to help  them without changing anything in their infrastructure.
