Health and Wellness Policy

If you have had a recent surgery, injury, or have a medical condition please consult your doctor BEFORE you schedule an appointment. Massage should not be construed as a substitute for medical examination, diagnosis, or treatment and is intended for the basic purpose of relaxation, stress reduction and relief, or muscular tension.

Cancellation Policy

Canceling appointments costs the business time, money, and clients. Twenty-four (24) hours notice in the form of a phone call or email is required when canceling an appointment. If given less than twenty-four (24) hours, you will be charged half (1/2) of the cost of your session. If given less than two (2) hours notice, you will be charged the full amount of your session. If you have a package and cancel with less than twenty-four (24) hours notice, your package will be charged. If the phone is not answered when calling to cancel, leave a message to avoid unwanted charges.

If you need to change your original appointment to a shorter session, there will be a $10 convenience fee added to the shorter session price.

Gift certificates are non-refundable.
