Cancellation Policy

When appointments are booked, our practitioners reserves the whole hour especially for you, therefore the following cancellation policy is in place.
 
We require 48 hour’s notice to reschedule or cancel a session without occurring any extra fees. This policy is in place to allow us to offer the allocated time to another client who may be on a cancellation or waiting list for an appointment. A $50 fee will be charged for non-attendance with less than 48 hour’s notice. The full fee will be charged in instances in which less that 24 hours cancellation notice is provided.
 
We understand that sometimes you may be unable to keep an appointment because of sudden illness or an unexpected personal emergency. If this happens to you, please contact us as soon as possible so we can ensure a cancellation fee is not unfairly applied.
 
A late cancelled appointment is a loss to three people
• The client who is delaying their therapy progress
• Another client who has been sitting on the waiting list to see the practitioner urgently
• The practitioner who spent the morning preparing for the session
