Affinity Massage Therapy and Wellness Policies
Please note that we require 24 hours advance notice to reschedule or cancel appointments, otherwise we will need to charge you a missed appointment fee. The first cancellation without 24 hours notice will be charged at half the treatment fee, subsequent cancellations will be charged the full amount.
In consideration for your therapist and the person scheduled after your appointment, please be on time for your appointment, as we may not be able to extend your treatment time. We will give you as much of your treatment time as possible, but may need to end at the scheduled time, especially if there is someone scheduled right after you.
A receipt is issued after each massage therapy treatment. Receipts for gift certificates are issued in the name of the purchaser; the description of the service paid for is “Gift Certificate”. A receipt is not issued when the gift certificate is redeemed.
