Aboveboard policies, and full disclosures are inclusive of my business plan. This prevents mishaps and misunderstandings, and preserves the sanctity of each massage session. Most of what you need to know, or want to know is in this website. Please contact me personally if you have any questions, or if I can further assist you.
Late Cancellations & No Shows:
Fees apply if less than a 24 hour notice is received (48 hours if by email) UNLESS:
My Availability During Illness/Injury:
I am not able to work during times of illness or injury. This can include minor illnesses if I am significantly under the weather, and minor injuries, if they involve important areas used during the massage.
In these cases, clients will be rescheduled until I am well or healed. There is no substitute therapist offered.
Important Policy on Illness:
This illness policy is to PROTECT all concerned when it comes to contagious illness.
Checks, Cash, Credit/Debit Cards:
Returned checks will receive a $25 fee and/or charges to cover any bank fees incurred, due to the non-clearance of any check. Payment by cash or card will be required on future massages.
All major credit/debit cards are accepted for your convenience, credit card perks, & airline miles. 2.75% may be added to cover the merchant fees (3.96% if processed manually).
Small/Quiet pets in carriers can be accommodated.There is a lack of space available for larger pets, and health codes do not permit animals to be resting upon floors, or on any open space within the building.
Personal Items (Jewelry, etc.)
It is not uncommon for clients to leave personal items behind after their massage. I will immediately contact you if I notice you have left something behind. Rest assured that whatever is left and found in MY STUDIO, will be safeguarded, until is is returned to you.
Items left outside of my studio (restroom, lobby, etc.) cannot be safeguarded, and I take no responsibility for those items.
