       New Client Information

  • Please save time by downloading, printing, and filling out the New Client Form and bring it in with you on your first visit.  If you are unable to print out the form, please call to let us know in advance (so we know to expect you) and plan to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time in order to fill it out in our office.  If you do not arrive early, the time taken to fill out your form is included within your scheduled appointment time, and will therefore result in a shortened appointment.  Completion of the New Client Form is required for all clients, and we will not perform services without a full health intake. 

  • We endeavor to provide a caring and relaxing environment for your massage experience. We ask that clients' voices be kept at a quiet level.  Please silence your phone upon arrival by turning it off or on do not disturb mode. If you need to be available take a call during your session, please let your therapist know, and put your phone on vibrate. 

  • Out of respect for your therapist and others who may be following you, please refrain from wearing perfume or smoking before your appointment.  We ask that you be clean and free from strong odors such as perfume, smoke, or body odor.  Clients with strong scents may be refused service and will be responsible for payment in full for the appointment.

       Appointments / Cancellation / Rescheduling Policy

  • Appointments are an agreement to reserve a portion of available office time.  Please arrive a few minutes early.  We cannot guarantee full service time for late arrivals, and you will be responsible for the full amount of your session. Upon arrival, if you request a shortened service, you are responsible for the full amount of the scheduled service. Your session time includes consultation, assessment, treatment, dressing time, and check in/check out.

  • All appointments require payment in full at time of scheduling and are non refundable.  If multiple sessions (not part of a program) are scheduled, we only require that clients pay up front for one appointment at time.  When you come for an appointment, your next one is paid for on that day.

  • There are no refunds given for canceled or missed appointments.

  • Programs: The full amount of the program must be paid in full at time of scheduling.  Clients who have pre-paid for programs will have the full amount of the missed appointment deducted. 

  • Appointments may be rescheduled once with a minimum of 48 hours’ notice or by noon on Thursday for Monday appointments. If a client needs to reschedule more than once, a fee of 50% the value of the appointment will be charged for the rescheduling. Rescheduling must be within six weeks of the original appointment, otherwise it is considered a cancellation, and the full fee for the new appointment must be prepaid. Rescheduling for 1/2 day (3-4 hours service) require a minimum of 5 business days’ notice, and full day services (any time over 4 hours) require 10 business days’ notice for rescheduling.
