ILLNESS & Cancellation
If you are unwell you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment immediately.
If your children or some one close to you are Unwell (with any symptoms-This is including anything that is seemingly mild)-
And you are feeling well. Please DO NOT wait until you are unwell to cancel your appointment at the last minute.
Covid Illness or Isolating
If you have been in contact with anyone isolating, unwell- a family member or you have been in contact with friends or others that have any symptoms of a virus,cold/flu, you are a close contact, and or you have to isolate. You need to reschedule or cancel your appointment immediately. Please read full cancellation policies below.
Covid - Recovery - When to book a massage?
If you have had covid-19 and have already isolated for 7 days, and it has been at least 10 days since the first onset of symptoms and you are Completely Symptom Free for at least 48 hours (if not longer), you are feeling well again and are fully recovered.
In general it can take up to two weeks or longer to fully recover from an illness such as a flu or virus. I would highly recommend waiting at least 14 days/after two weeks of a first day positive test result until you have a massage and feel fully recovered. This also depends on any lingering symptoms after completion of illness, individual heath and how mild or severe the illness has been and whether there are lingering side effects.
If in doubt please feel free to be in contact with me if you unsure when to have a massage.
*Please do not show up to your appointment unwell or with symptoms, as you will be refused treatment and you maybe expected to pay 100% for your appointment*

Health and safety - Hygiene and sanitation
If you need to use the bathroom, please be aware this is shared with other businesses, and keep in mind safe distancing at all times, please do not stop in the entrance ways
All appointments have a larger gap in between
This is to allow for my usual time for cleaning and this is also to allow proper ventilation of the treatment room,
re heating/cooling, changing linen and re setting the room, plus with the added time for extra cleaning and sanitising surfaces using the usual Body Therapies cleaning procedures and products with 70% alcohol and vira clean that kills a broad spectrum of bugs and viruses.

Groups of two or more people and longer appointments -
Require a deposit
A 50% deposit is required for each appointment upon booking for two or more people, and with multiple or longer services for up to two hours. You can pay online or you will be sent an invoice prior to secure your booked appointment/s.
Join the Wait List
Appointments book out quickly from 4 weeks or longer and Saturday's are very popular.
Join the wait list, as appointment times can change quickly. Once your request has been submitted, if a time becomes available you will be contacted according to your request and only for the the period of time you have specified that you would like to be on the wait list for an appointment.
Being on the wait list is not seen as securing a booking. It is very highly recommended to book the first available appointment via the online booking calendar and then you can also opt to go on the wait list for an earlier time if it becomes available.
Wait List & Cancellations
Body Therapies has a wait List, however notice given to a client needs to be reasonable. Last minute appointments can not always be filled, and therefore the appointment ends up missed and this is a loss to all.
Please be mindful when booking an appointment.
If you do need to reschedule or cancel, please do so with plenty of notice if this is possible so that another person could benefit.
48 Hours Notice is required to cancel your appointment

If you have sustained any injuries, serious inflammation, infection/s, tooth ache or possible tooth infection or anything else that could potentially make you feel unwell this could be a barrier to treatment.
