Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions

We have tried our best to make these clear and easy to read and where possible have avoided using legal terms and jargon. Upon booking of treatment the client agrees to the following terms and conditions:

 

Consultation

An initial consultation and treatment appointment must be booked prior to any follow-up treatment booking. An individual assessment and client consultation must be completed prior to any treatment commencing.

All clients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian during the session. A client agreement and Informed written consent to be completed by the client prior to any treatment.

Treatment cannot be performed under certain medical conditions. Restoring Balance reserves the right to refuse treatment to anyone who is deemed to have a condition for which treatment is contraindicated – medical consent will be required.

 

Cancellations & Refunds

Unplanned issues come up for all of us. Restoring Balance recognises this fact, and where possible will always try to accommodate our clients, however, due to our pre-booked client schedule, and setting your appointment time, solely for your use, we respectfully request if you must cancel your scheduled appointment, notify us at least a minimum of 48 hours in advance.

Cancellation between 48-24 hours notice will result in 50% of the appointment fees being payable. Less than 24 hours notice, we reserve the right to charge the full price of your appointment.   If you have a pre-paid treatment, gift certificate or voucher and do not cancel within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment, it will be considered null and void. No exceptions.

The rights of cancellation and refund and any limitation expressed in these terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

 

Lateness & No shows

Arriving late will limit the time for your treatment. Your session will start as soon as possible and end on the scheduled time so that the next client is not delayed. You will also be expected to pay the full amount of what would have been your treatment time should you arrive late to your appointment. Where the therapist schedule still allows time for your full treatment time, we will try and honour the additional time, however, we need to respect the appointment times set by clients that follow your appointment. In the unlikely event that we are running late, you will receive your full scheduled treatment time.

Clients who are a no call/ no show for appointments will be charged full price (100%) for their session. If you have a prepaid treatment, gift certificate or voucher and are a no call/show, it will be considered null and void. No exceptions.
