payment POLICIES:

Payment is due in full at the end of each appointment.  Credit cards, checks, and cash are accepted.  There is a 3 % fee for credit card transactions.



We understand unforeseen things in life happen.  In order to be effective and fair to all clients, the following policies are honored:  Please give 24 hours notice if you are unable to make your appointment.  This allows others to be able to schedule an appointment instead.  

Not showing up for an appointment, or cancelling at the last minute, may result in all, or part, of the session being charged.



As a courtesy to the therapist and other clients, please arrive 5-10 minutes before the start of your appointment.  

If you arrive late, your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, your therapist will then determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the price of the “full” session. Out of respect and consideration to your therapist and other customers, please plan accordingly and be on time. 


confidentiality, ethics:

All bodywork is strictly confidential, creating a safe space for the client.  

Massage therapy at Shanti Studio is non-sexual, by law, and by practice.  Those disrespecting this will immediately be asked to leave, and be charged for the full session.



It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor's care or uncertain whether you are well enough to receive massage or bodywork, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
