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.
- If you are feeling sick or have been exposed to COVID-19, cancel your session immediately or as soon as possible.

This will allow you to find our office, fill out paperwork, wash your hands, 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 10 minutes of tardiness and allow you to receive your full massage time.

- If you have missed an appointment without contacting us, we will require non-refundable prepayment for your next session.
- 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.
