Cancellation Policy

Your appointments are very important to me and I understand that sometimes schedule adjustments are necessary; therefore, I respectfully request at least 24 hours notice for cancellations. Please understand that when you forget or cancel your appointment without giving enough notice, I miss the opportunity to fill that appointment time, and clients on my waiting list miss the opportunity to receive treatments.

All cancellations must be received at least 24 hours before your treatment in order to avoid being charged for your appointment . Clients who do not cancel with 24 hours notice will be charged for the cancelled session. I understand that emergencies happen. I provide every client with one free short-notice cancellation. You will not be charged for your first cancellation with less than 24 hours notice. Subsequent short- notice cancellations will be charged for the full session.

The free short-notice cancellation only applies if I am notified prior to the treatment start time. No shows are not eligible for the free cancellation.

If you need to cancel a session, please call: 07870 235 819
