Policies and Procedures
- Greensboro Massage and Bodywork has no cancellation fees. We understand life happens and plans may need to change. Please let us know by text or phone within 24 hrs of your appointment or as soon as possible. This allows us to adjust our day accordingly.
- When you make an appointment, we make a commitment to be there for you. We take all appointments seriously and do not cancel lightly. In the event that emergency or illness necessitates your appointment be cancelled, we will inform you by phone as early as possible.
- Please arrive a few minutes early for your appointment. We recommend arriving 10 minutes early for your first appointment. This will allow you to find our office, fill out paperwork, use the restroom, have a thorough intake with your massage therapist and still start your appointment on time, without feeling rushed.
- If circumstances demand, we may be able to accommodate up to 15 minutes of tardiness and allow you to receive your full massage time. If your massage starts more than 15 minutes past your scheduled appointment time, your session will be cut short. You will be charged the full cost of your service.
- If you are 15 minutes late and we have not heard from you, you have missed your appointment and will not receive your massage as scheduled. However, you can reschedule at your convenience.
- We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule a massage service in the event that inclement weather would jeopardize the safety of our therapists. In such a circumstance we would notify you by phone as early as possible.
Massage oil and essential oil:
- We generally use fractionated coconut oil for our massage services, but have other oils or massage lotions available by request. Fractionated coconut oil is clear and odorless and not necessary to wash off after your session.
- We use pure, therapy grade essential oils. We have a selection of essential oils available on request for use during your appointment at no additional cost. Our most popular options are lavender, eucalyputs, and citrus.
- We will only use our in-house products for your services.
