Should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, we ask that you provide 48 hours notice to avoid incurring the full therapy fee or the voiding of gift certificates. Cancellations in less than 48 hours will require a charge of 100 percent of the treatment price.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time in order to change and become oriented with our facilities. Please note that late arrivals will result in reduced treatment time.
