These policies are in place to encourage common courtesy. Life can be complicated; in the event of unavoidable life events, or illness, I reserve the right to waive any fees.
Please be considerate of my time and the time of others who may be waiting for an appointment.
I require a minimum of 12 hour notice if you must cancel your appointment. This allows an opportunity for another client to schedule their appointment for that time. There is no fee for this type of cancellation.
Cancellations with less than 12 hours notice are subject to a $30 fee.
If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, you will be charged a minimum of 50% of the regular fee for the visit.
Repeated cancellations may require prepayment for future visits and/or may be dismissed from the practice.
If you have signs and/or symptoms of a potentially contagious illness/infection, fever, or undiagnosed rash, please reschedule your appointment. This is to avoid potentially sharing your illness with your therapist and other clients.
If I am feeling ill and/or contagious, even though I may wish to work, I will notify you as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment to avoid sharing my illness.
Please plan accordingly to arrive on time for your scheduled appointment to ensure the full amount of time is available for massage.
NOTE: Gift Certificates/Coupons may be voided by failing to keep your appointment (no show) or cancelling without sufficient notice (late cancellation)
Please park in the driveway behind my blue Honda CRV. If that spot is not available, you may park in the Bright Smiles Dental Office parking lot across the street.
If you must make/take a call while waiting for your appointment, please do so on the outdoor patio if possible.
Please turn off or silence your electronic devices while you are in session. If you must have your phone on for any reason, please let me know in advance.
Here in the Northeast, the winters can be unpredictable and with the threat of severe weather, there may be school closings or delays. Some of us have long and/or steep driveways.
If you are unable to keep your appointment due to ice/snow, please let me know as soon as possible. Late/cancellation fees will not apply in this instance.
If, for some reason, I am unable to make it in, I will notify you as well.
Payment in full is expected at your visit. Cash is welcome, checks (with drivers license) are encouraged, and all credit cards are accepted. There is a $35 fee for returned checks.
A gratuity is not expected, however, if you feel you received exceptional care, it will be graciously accepted.
As always, I am grateful for your business.
Massage Therapy is for the basic purpose of relaxation and relief of muscular tension and not a substitute for medical diagnosis and treatment.
Only ethical Massages services are offered here. Any suggestive statements or actions will result in immediate termination of session wherein the client pays the full cost of the session. Law enforcement will be notified if deemed appropriate.
