Securing an Appointment
All appointments must be secured with a major credit card to reserve an appointment for services. This requirement also applies to appointments that will be paid with vouchers, gift certificates and any other form of prepayment. The credit card security is to insure therapist's ability to recover liquidated damages in the event of client's late cancellation or no show.
As soon as the “Client” sets an appointment with the “Practitioner”, Practitioner will not book other sessions during this time. In the event that the Client cancels the appointment, less than 24 hours before the scheduled appointment time, or fails to attend the appointment on the scheduled date and time, for any reason, the Practitioner shall suffer financial loss. As such, Client agrees that, in the event of cancellation by Client, less than 24 hours before the scheduled appointment time, a $20 cancellation fee shall be paid to the Practitioner as liquidated damages and not as a penalty. If Client cancels appointment less than 2 hours prior to appointment time, the Cancellation Fee shall be no less than 50% and up to 100% of scheduled services rate.
In the unlikely event that the Practitioner is unable to perform the service due to an injury, illness, act of God, act of terrorism, or other cause beyond the control of the Practitioner, the Practitioner will make every effort to secure a replacement. If the situation should occur and a suitable replacement is not found, responsibility and liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the event and the $20 cancellation fee will not be charged.
Further, in the event credit card or debit card cannot be successfully processed for the Cancellation Fee, the Fee will be attached to the Client's house account. The Cancellation Fee will be collected at the next service appointment.
