Policies & Procedures
In order to serve you best I have put in place a few standard policies and procedures.
Payment for services are due at the end of every massage/bodywork session.
Gratuities are accepted, but not required. Cash, checks, or credit/debit cards are acceptable forms of payment. Any returned checks will require a $25 fee and will result in cash/card payment for future sessions. Please make checks payable to Kristen W. Taylor or Breath of Life Massage and Bodywork.
Cancellations & No Shows
Situations may arise in which you need to cancel an appointment. If this occurs please
provide a notice of at least 24 hours before your appointment time. This allows time to fill in the appointment. If a 24 hour notice is not given and you fail to arrive to your scheduled appointment, 50% of the scheduled service fee will be required.
The time scheduled for a session is the time given for a session. If you arrive late to
your appointment, the ending time will remain the same and a full service fee will be charged.
Payment for gift certificates will be required upon their request. They are non-refundable and never expire (unless given as a donation) and may be transferred to someone else upon the recipients request, prior to their use. If you are using a gift certificate for payment, you may not use any rewards or promotion for this service. When used, gift certificates will be treated as cash payment.
Event packages are paid for at the beginning of the event (if paid for by the event coordinator.) Event cancellations require a one week notice. If a one week notice is not given, a 50% service fee for service(s) requested is required.
Any sexual suggestions, remarks, or advances made by a client will result in
immediate termination of the session. The client will be liable for full payment of the
scheduled appointment, indefinitely refused for future sessions and reported to the
proper authorities. This matter is not taken lightly!
Existing & New Medical Conditions
It is the responsibility of the client to keep the massage practitioner informed of any
medical treatment currently being taken, changes in health conditions, and to provide
written permission from the physician, chiropractor, physical therapist, etc., that the
massage may be continued, if circumstance deems this necessary.
