Policies and Procedures
Please arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment to get cozy and settled. The time we set aside for your appointment is completely yours. Out of the highest respect to you and my other clients, sessions end on the scheduled time and full cost of the session applied.
No-Show and Rescheduling Policy
You may cancel your appointment without penalty up to 24 hours before the starting time of the massage. If you cancel your appointment up to 12 hours before the massage, you will be charged half the rate, and if the appointment is cancelled less than 12 hours before the massage, you will be responsible for the entire massage fee. No-shows are responsible for the entire fee before they will be treated again.
If we reschedule your Appointment
If we cancel your appointment for any reason within 24 hours of the scheduled time, you will receive a discounted rate of 10% at your next appointment (this excludes already discounted services) or 15 minutes of additional time to your appointment. We hope we never have to cancel, but emergencies and illness do happen from time to time and we thank you for your understanding.
Times when Massage is not Beneficial
If a clients shows signs and/or symptoms that contraindicate massage (fever, undiagnosed rash, contagious infection), the session will be re-scheduled. This is to protect the health of both the client and the therapist.)
Health Intake Form(s)
To ensure safe, customized sessions, the client must fill out a health intake form before treatment. It is the client’s responsibility to relay all health information so the therapist can modify the treatment plan where necessary.
We are not Doctor’s but occasionally miracle workers
Massage, bodywork, and spiritual healings serve as therapeutic tools to enhance well-being. They are not substitutes for medical treatments. Massage and Spiritual therapists are not qualified to diagnose conditions, prescribe treatment or perform spinal/skeletal manipulations. Any information imparted by the therapist in the course of treatment should not be construed at such.
Payments –All services must be paid for no later than 15 minutes after the service was completed by means of cash, check, visa, mastercard, or viable gift certificate/online voucher. We do not accept IOU’s, monies of other nations, or counterfeit, blessings, or poems. Once a transaction has been made, there are no partial or full refunds. The same rule applies for gratuities. There is a $25 bounced check fee. If you do not pay any outstanding balances with us within 3 months, we still require your payment, but we will be unable to provide future service to that party.
‘Do-over’ Services –If you were unhappy with your service, we request that you tell as as soon as possible. We love our clients, and we do our best to serve them with integrity and compassion. If you received a service but were unhappy, you have 24 hours to notify us by email or phone call. The next service will be given to you at a discount of 15%, or you will receive an extra 15 minutes of time at your next session. There are no 2nd ‘do-over’ discount services. If we still did not meet your satisfaction, then it will, unfortunately, be time to respectfully part ways.
Conduct –We have a zero tolerance for bad conduct, inappropriateness, sexual comments/behavior, and bad business practices from clients and other business representatives. If we end a session due to any of the previously mentioned, you are still responsible for the entire session fee and you sacrifice any credit that you had accrued with the Urban Kneads Club if this applies to you.
Draping –We follow strict industry protocol and state law, in which we drape the client with a full sized sheet over the body. Individual body parts will be exposed only in a secure manner for the respect, modesty, and privacy of our clients and staff. We will never, even upon request use ‘just a towel’ or perform bodywork in any other fashion unless you choose to remain fully clothed.
Sexual Harassment -Zero tolerance. If any sexual comments, requests, or physical actions occur during any portion of the session or visit to our office, the session will end immediately and you will still be responsible for paying for the entire session. You will not be served again. If you perform any other offense of sexual harassment or abuse, the authorities will be called immediately.
Online Vouchers –We follow the policies indicated on your contract of purchase with your online voucher. Please read them carefully, as we cannot break the rules as part of our contract with them. We will not honor them past their expiration date. If you could not get an appointment prior to that date because of scheduling conflicts, we will handle the predicament on a case by case basis.
