Cancellation Policy and Fees

All services require a $20 non refundable deposit to guarantee a reservation so please have your credit card and/or gift certificate ready when booking.

Your therapy times are reserved exclusively for you. We value your business and ask that you respect our scheduling policies. Should you need to cancel or reschedule, please notify us at least 48 hours in advance or you could be charged for the appointment.

Clients who miss their appointments without giving any prior notification will be charged in full for the scheduled service. We recognize the time of our clients and staff is valuable and have implemented this policy for this reason. When you miss an appointment with us, our therapists not only lose your business, but also the potential business of other clients who could have scheduled an appointment for the same time. Additionally, many times our staff will be functioning in an “on-call” status and may have traveled to the office specifically for your service. For these reasons, we are obligated to compensate our staff for their time.

Arriving late

If you are late to your session you are welcome to receive whatever time is left in your appointment. Due to our tightly booked schedule we are generally unable to extend your session beyond your original appointment time. Regardless of the length of the service actually given, you will be responsible for payment of the full service you scheduled.
