Our Policies

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel your appointment we require 24 hours notice to allow other clients the opportunity of booking the slot. If you cancel within 24 hours of the appointment time then a 100% fee or the equal cost of the appointment booked must be paid.

If you have an appointment booked with us and experience any Covid like symptoms (including but not limited to fever, fatigue, new dry cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, or loss of smell or taste) please contact us immediately. We will rearrange your appt free of charge to a minimum of 14 days time.

This is also the case if a member of your household begins to show symptoms. This is to help us remain Covid secure and keep you and our community safe.

If the reason for a late cancellation or no show is not due to the above our normal cancellation policy stands.

If the clinic or therapist needs to cancel the appointment there will be no fee.

Terms and Conditions for appointments

I understand that the massage therapy I receive is provided for the basic purpose of relaxation, therapeutic purposes, and the relief of muscular tension. If I experience any pain or discomfort during this session, I will immediately inform the practitioner so that the pressure and/or strokes may be adjusted to my level of comfort. I further understand that massage therapy should not be construed as a substitute for medical examination, diagnosis, or treatment and that I should see a physician, chiropractor, or other qualified medical specialists for any mental or physical ailment of which I am aware.

I understand that massage therapists are not qualified to perform spinal or skeletal adjustments, diagnose, prescribe, or treat any physical or mental illness and that nothing said in the course of my session given should be construed as such. Because massage therapy should not be performed under certain medical conditions, I affirm that I have stated all my known medical conditions and answered all questions honestly. I agree to keep the practitioner updated as to any changes in my medical profile and understand that there shall be no liability on the practitioner’s part should I fail to do so.

By agreeing to these terms & conditions, “I hereby waive and release my massage therapist at IH Soft Tissue Therapy and all its staff employees affiliates and/or independent contractors from any and all liability past, present, and future and any incident(s) relating to massage therapy”. I also understand that any illicit or sexually suggestive remarks or advances made by me will result in immediate termination of my session, and I will be liable for payment of the scheduled appointment.
