Cancellation and Late Arrival Policy

Time is very valuable and if an appointment is started late due to the client's tardy arrival, the session will end at the normally scheduled completion-time. The missed treatment time will be lost and the full session rate will still being charged. If the session is cancelled or rescheduled within 24 hours of the appointment start time, a $25 late cancellation charge will be assessed. This fee will be waived if the appointment can be filled by another client, and we will do everything in our power to fill that appointment, however, this not at all guaranteed. A full session rate will be automatically charged for a no call/no show, or cancellation at the time of the appointment. In return, we promise to honor your appointments and be on-time for you as well.

Information

All new clients will be asked to fill out a confidential intake form prior to the first session. Please download and print this form from the homepage and fill it out prior to your session. You may bring the completed form with you, or you may also fax it to our office directly at 480.967.7348. If you are unable to print the form, please arrive 5-10 minutes early to fill it out in office and have your doctor’s name and phone number available. Some medical conditions may be contraindicated to massage, therefore all current and recent medical conditions, surgeries, and medications must be disclosed to ensure safety of your treatment and health. All information disclosed on the intake form is confidential and will only be shared to a third party upon request and with your prior approval. With some medical conditions, your doctor may be contacted for approval before treatment and a written release may be necessary. If you have a list of current medications, we ask that you bring a copy of that to your appointment as well, or fax it to our office the day before. If you have MRI or surgical reports that pertain to your visit, please bring or fax a copy of that as well. We prefer to have as much information on your current condition as possible. While massage and bodywork is an important part of health and well-being, please note that it is not a substitute for proper medical care.

Medication

If you are currently on prescription pain relievers or muscle relaxants, please let your therapist know prior to your session as special care must be given during your treatment to ensure you receive the best possible results. The use of recreational drugs and alcohol are not permitted 8 hours before a treatment. The use of these substances is contraindicated with massage therapy, which when taken before a massage may result in severe adverse effects on the body. Also let your therapist know prior to your session if you have taken any over-the-counter pain relievers (Advil, Tylenol, Aleve).

Hydration

Proper hydration through drinking plenty of water is essential, both before and after your session. Please drink a glass or bottle before arriving for your treatment. You will be advised to drink the minimum amount of water for your body in the 24 hours following your session. To calculate, divide your body weight in pounds by two and that will give you the minimum amount of water in ounces that you should be drinking per day.

Professionalism

Neuromuscular Therapy and Therapeutic Massage Therapy are professional, therapeutic types of bodywork. Draping must remain secure at all times by law. Sexual innuendos and intentional contact with the therapist are inexcusable and will result in immediate termination of the session with full payment due.

Hygiene

All clients must shower within 8 hours of the session and practice proper hygiene. Athletes and yogis must be freshly showered prior to receiving treatment.
