Frequently Asked Questions

Cancellations & Rescheduling

As we are a small practice, we appreciate as much notice as possible for cancelling or rescheduling. This allows clients that may be on a waiting list to be booked into any available times. 

If you need to cancel or postpone an appointment, please provide a minimum of 48 hours notice before your scheduled appointment. Except in the event of family emergency, a cancellation fee equal to the cost of the scheduled session will be charged if less than a 48 hours notice is provided.

If you do not attend an appointment without notifying us beforehand, you will be charged the full scheduled fee.

Appointment Reminders

Appointment reminders can be provided via SMS and/or email.  We also ask that you make note of your appointment dates and times in your diary.
