In The Clinic

Please wear a mask and remove your shoes when you arrive. A clean space is a happy place! Please turn your cell phone off or silence your ringer. This is for your benefit: let’s maximize your Mello time.

Cancellation Policy

If you need to reschedule, cancel, or shorten the length of time for your appointment a minimum of 24 hours cancellation notice is required to avoid being charged the full rate for the amount of time scheduled. Unfortunately sometimes things happen that are out of our control, so there is no charge for late cancellations in cases of illness, emergencies or inclement weather. Unfortunately a scheduling conflict is not considered a true emergency.

Late Arrivals

If you happen to arrive late for your appointment, please take a deep breath! We are always happy to see you and add some Mello into your day. It is, however, important to understand that the treatment will end at the scheduled time and the full rate applies for the time that was reserved for you. This allows adequate time for sanitization in between appointments and respects the next patients’ time as well. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Some insurance companies may require a medical referral (doctor’s note) for massage therapy; other companies may not allow direct billing; and sometimes a payment deductible is required.
