A security deposit is due for all new and existing clients, excluded those with memberships, gift cards or pre-paid packages. A $25 security deposit total will depend on services selected. Failure to submit security deposit will result in the cancellation of your appointment. Full pre-payment, however, is still available. Deposits are non-refundable & will be applied toward your service balance. Remaining balance can be rendered via Cash or Card the day of your appointment.
As always thank you for your support.
Your appointment time is reserved just for you. A late cancellation or missed visit leaves a hole in the therapists' day that could have been filled by another patient. As such, we require minimum 12 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment.
Patients who provide less than 12 hours notice will be charged a $25 cancellation fee and/or forfeit their security deposit, while those who miss their appointment will be charged the full service fee. Please do not reply to an SMS reminder as the number is not monitored and will not constitute a cancellation. Please send an email or contact 240-716-1058.
If you arrive late for your appointment, we cannot provide an extension of your scheduled appointment. Depending upon how late you arrive I will determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Arriving more than 15 - 20 minutes late will most likely result in being requested to reschedule. The original scheduled service fee will be charged in full for late arrivals. Client intake forms are automatically emailed to the client via the email provided at the time of booking. This form can be completed completely online from you desktop or mobile phone. The importance of this form is to assess the client's health history for any contraindication that may alter or prevent the client from receiving a service. This is not only for the health and safety of the client but for the therapist as well. Failure to complete this form at least 6 hours prior to the scheduled appt will result in a cancellation or rescheduling. Please contact the therapist for more details.
We do not issue refunds unless the therapist is at fault for a repeat canceled service or appointment. Service credits only.
