Massage Event Policies & Procedures
Kneaded Touch clearly understands that unforeseen events happen occasionally. Those last minute meetings, traffic considerations and project deadlines are just a few reasons one might consider canceling an onsite massage event. Kneaded Touch is dedicated to providing our customers with a professional onsite massage event. In order to do so the following policies and procedures are strictly adhered to in order to consistently provide our unique and outstanding massage experience we are known for.
Please encourage each participant to arrive for their Kneaded Touch massage event appointment 5 minutes prior to the scheduled starting time. This allows you the time for a relaxed and unhurried experience.
If late arrival is inevitable, your service(s) will be shortened in order to keep on schedule. No full or partial refunds will be given.
Late Arrival Policy
We regret that late arrivals will not receive extension of scheduled onsite massage appointments. In special cases, and when our schedule will allow, we may be able to accommodate a partial or full appointment. This will be at our discretion and only with proper, advanced notification of your late arrival. The original reservation fee will be charged.
Corporate clients must provide at least 72 hours notice if you need to reschedule, cancel, or modify your appointment in any way. If your appointment is on a Monday, notice must be given 72 hours before your appointment that Wednesday; weekends don't count toward the 72 hour notice policy.
If you fail to cancel or modify your appointment prior to 72 hours before your onsite massage appointment, but you give more than 24 hours notice, a 50% fee will be charged to your credit card. Full refunds will not be given.
Cancellations or appointment modifications with less than 24 hours notice will be charged the full fee for services. No refunds will be provided for deposits or cancellations received less than 24 hours before a scheduled appointment.
Additionally, events with 4 or more shifts will be charged a 15% non-refundable fee for any cancellation or reduction in hours, no matter how much notice is given. An event is defined as anything a company books with us, even if it is multiple locations or dates. All therapists scheduled do not need to be working at the same location or the same shift for this 15% fee policy to apply.
