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.
Message therapy is for relaxation and therapeutic purposes only. There is absolutely no sexual component to massage whatsoever. Any insinuation, joke, gesture, conversation, or request otherwise will result in the immediate termination of your session and a refusal of any services in the future.

We prefer not to discuss topics of a political or religious nature.
The client is responsible for informing the massage therapist of any medical treatment currently being taken and providing written permission from the physician, chiropractor, physical therapist, etc., that the massage may be continued.
The client must also inform the massage therapist of any changes in health conditions.
For clients undergoing chemo and radiation therapies – Please note that we require a doctor’s note that states the doctor is aware of and agrees to the desired treatment.
Before each massage session, the treatment plan will be discussed with you.
At your first visit with us, you will be asked to sign the treatment consent form stating that you have read the information, understand it, and agree to comply with the professional massage therapy or acupuncture policies and procedures.

Before and after each massage, the massage therapist’s hands and forearms will be washed with hot soapy water and a disinfecting solution.

The client will come to the massage therapy appointment clean. The client will inform the massage therapist of any breaks in the skin, and these areas will be avoided.
Should the massage therapist or the client contract a contagious disease that could be spread during the massage session, such as a cold, flu, or other droplet or airborne infection, each will inform the other. The decision to reschedule will be handled on a case-by case manner.
