Q - What is your cancellation policy?
A - Amid the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, we have modified our cancellation policy to offer greater flexibility to all our clients. We hope this will alleviate any stress and hesitation you have about an upcoming appointment. If you need to reschedule for whatever reason, and especially if you are not feeling well, we understand and request for you to contact us as soon as possible to reschedule. To further support you, there will be no penalties for cancellations.
We understand that sometimes circumstances beyond our control can arise & an appointment may have to be cancelled or rescheduled. If you must cancel or reschedule your appointment, we request that you contact us 24 hours in advance. We do consider both our clients & treatment providers time to be valuable, therefore, failure to do so (no-show's) may result in your being charged the full service fee.
Groups & Spa Day Packages are subject to a 1-week cancellation policy.
Q - What if I am late for my appointment?
A - Arriving late may limit the time available for your treatment. The full value of your treatment will be charged. However, your treatment may end on-time, as to not delay the next client.
