The purpose of these policies are for the mutual respect of each other’s time and health.
- Only professional therapeutic massage is provided. I am Board Certified with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB). Read “Why Board Certified Practitioners?” Here are some excerpts:
- “Board Certified Therapists Meet Rigorous Qualifications – When you choose a Board Certified practitioner, you can be confident you’ve selected a dedicated professional. To become Board Certified, a practitioner must demonstrate mastery of core skills and knowledge related to their profession, pass an NCBTMB exam, uphold the organization’s Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, and take part in continued education to ensure they remain at the top of their profession.”
- “In the event that the client initiates sexual behavior, clarify the purpose of the therapeutic session, and, if such conduct does not cease, terminate or refuse the session”
New Client Booking Policy
- Payment with your credit card or paypal is required to book the appointment if you are a first time client.
- Cash, Check, Paypal or Credit cards are accepted
Late Policy Charge
Call or text me at 916-800-4292 as soon as possible. If there has not been any phone call of the delay for 10 minutes after a scheduled appointment time, the appointment will be considered a no show and a $35 payment is due. The spa industry typically charges 100%. The therapist will stop waiting.
One of the primary reasons for massage is relaxation. Plan to allow enough time so you aren’t flustered at the beginning of your massage.
Cancellation / No Show Policy Charge
- $35 payment is due for missed appointments or cancellations with less than 4 hours notice.
- Call to reschedule your appointment if feeling unwell. When you are sick you may want to feel better with a massage but receiving a massage can make symptoms worse. The massage session will need to be rescheduled for contagious illness such as diarrhea, vomiting, fever, chicken pox, measles, meningitis, conjunctivitis, impetigo, influenza, scabies or the common cold.
