More Information

Our cancellation policy is in place as part of CFIH’s commitment to delivering timely, high-quality treatment.  

A cancelled appointment is a loss to three people:

  • The client who is delaying their therapy progress,
  • Another client who is on the waiting list to see the practitioner urgently,
  • The practitioner who spent time preparing for the session.

Cancellations occurring two business days before the day of the appointment will incur a $50.00 fee. Cancellations occurring on the business day before the appointment, or on the day of the appointment, will incur a cancellation fee of the full amount.

We understand a sudden illness and unexpected personal emergencies can occur. If this happens to you, please contact us as soon as possible so we consider your circumstances. For sudden illness, please provide a medica certificate within 2 business days of the cancellation in order for us to waive the cancellation fee.

We thank you for your understanding of our cancellation policy.
