Cancellation Policy

Please be mindful that your appointment slot is assigned to you and may not be filled by other clients due to short notice. If you need to cancel or reschedule a session, we ask that you inform us at least 24 hours before your appointment. If you miss a session without cancelling, or cancel on the day of your appointment, you will be required to pay for the session in full (unless both parties agree that you were unable to attend due to circumstances beyond your control).

It is important to note that insurance companies do not provide reimbursements for cancelled sessions. In addition, you are responsible for coming to your session
ontime. If you are late, your appointment will still need to end at the scheduled time.
