Your safety is my number one priority. To help put your mind at ease, services are spaced out to allow for proper disinfecting using a hospital grade disinfectant. The space contains an air purifier, and the four windows can open and will be opened frequently to allow for fresh air to circulate.
During your treatment I'm always in a face mask and/ or face shield, and gloves when appropriate. All linens and top blankets are replaced after each treatment. Clients are all asked to wash hands upon entering. Our industry is built on sanitation and safety so it's nothing new to us!
I WILL NOT BE SHARING MY OWN OR ASKING FOR YOUR PERSONAL HEALTH INFORMATION.
Depending on State mandates/regulations/recommendations clients may be required to wear a mask. It would only apply to treatments that do not require access to your face. But I will always be in a mask during all treatments, regardless.
Please keep in mind that for small businesses in the service industry, Cancellation Policies are put in place to protect the business. Businesses do not profit from a cancellation fee.
It is meant as a deterrent. It is meant as a gentle reminder to respect our time and the health of the business. Cancelation policies are not meant to punish or bully clients.
Emergencies happen and I will work with you if that's the case.
If you do not feel well please reschedule. If you are SICK there will be no cost or fee to you. But your appointments will be rescheduled
10 DAYS OUT
If I or my family are not well, I will not be in and I will extend a discount on your next service. Upon MY return to the spa I will provide MY PCR test results.
***IF YOU TELL ME YOU'RE NOT SICK, BUT YOU LOOK AND OR SOUND SICK I WILL CANCEL YOUR SERVICE AND YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CANCELLATION FEE***
At the time of your online booking, you are prompted and required by the the system to make a 50% DEPOSIT in order to hold the appointment.
The deposit will go towards your total payment of services. It'll be held as a no show fee if you do not arrive or cancel with less than 24 hours notice.
Cancellation fees are only charged for appointments that are cancelled less than 24hours from start of appointment or if client does not arrive for services/NO SHOWS .
If the client arrives so late that the service cannot even start, it is then a same day cancellation and the fee will be charged.
The SAME DAY CANCELLATION/NO SHOW FEE will be waived if I can fill your time slot or if I can get you in on the SAME DAY-later time slot
Arriving late to a service affects my ability to service other clients scheduled after you. I cannot guarantee a full treatment if you arrive 15 minutes late or more
When scheduling your appointments please allow some extra time to make up for traffic, road construction, weather, kids, bad drivers, ducks crossing and everything else that makes people late!
Enter through the red door with the OFFICE sign. I am on the second floor. Upon arrival please use the restroom to the left of my space to wash hands.
IF MY DOOR IS CLOSED WITH A DO NOT DISTURB SIGN that means I'm finishing up with a client. Please wait for me in your vehicle and I will message you when the room is ready for you.
There is plenty of visitor parking near the entrance as well as the rear of the building. Please park in the VISITOR spots. Do not park in the RESERVED spots.
You CAN park in MY SPACE #202 if it's available
