You can pay for your treatment in a number of ways. The price of your treatment is to be paid to me in full at the end of the treatment by card, cheque or cash, unless otherwise agreed in advance between us.
When you book with me, you will receive a confirmation email with the time, length and price of your treatment.
PLEASE NOTE - all first time clients and home massage need to be paid for in advance.
If you arrive late to an appointment, your session will be shortened and you will be responsible to pay for the full amount. If more than 15 minutes late, you will be charged as a "no-show."
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment please give a minimum of 24 hrs before your appointment time. Any appointment cancelled or postponed by you within 24 hrs of your appointment time will be charged 50% of the service. Clients that miss their appointment ("no-show") will be charged 100% of the service.
All appointments require a credit card to hold the appointment.
As a Massage Therapist, I have the right to refuse service to clients. This includes, but is not limited to, clients that are intoxicated, violent, ill, displaying inappropriate behavior, using sexual innuendos and hate speech, exhibiting harassments, and those requesting services outside my scope of practice.
I provide therapeutic massage only. Jacaranda Massage Therapy is not a "massage parlor." Under no circumstances is sexual behavior or requests tolerated. Furthermore, human trafficking has no place here. Inappropriate and suspicious activity will be reported.
Children receiving treatment will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult during the treatment. Both the child and the adult will be required to give consent to be massaged. Adult clients who either lack the capacity to give informed consent, or who need support to make decisions, will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult during the treatment.
There will be times when receiving a treatment is not in your best interest and when I may refuse to massage you. These may include:
If you have any doubts about whether you should attend your appointment, please call or message me as soon as possible for advice. It may be that I can treat you, but avoiding particular areas of your body. Or it may be appropriate for you to stay at home, rest and reschedule your appointment for a later date.
