Spark of Life Massage Therapy

Policies and Procedures

Cancellation or No Show Policy:

  • Please provide 24 hour advanced notice if you need to cancel your appointment. This allows enough time to fill the appointment slot. If you are unable to give 24 hours notice, you will be charged a $30 cancellation fee. This amount must be paid prior to the next scheduled appointment. If a client fails to cancel within 24 hours multiple times (3 or more), they will be asked to pre-pay for future services.
  • In the event a client forgets or consciously chooses to forgo their appointment for whatever reason, they will be considered a “no-show” and charged the above cancellation fee.


Late Arrival:

  • In the event of a late arrival, the session may be shortened or canceled in order to accommodate other appointments. Depending how late the arrival is the therapist will determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of actual duration of the treatment, the client will be financially responsible for the original appointment reservation.


Informed Consent:

  • Prior to each massage session, the treatment plan will be discussed with the client. During your first visit with us you will receive a copy of the massage therapy policies and asked to sign the consent stating that you have read the information, understand it, and agree to comply with the professional massage therapy policies and procedures.


Scope of Practice:

  • Being affiliated and licensed through the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals Association I am held to the highest standards of Practice in Massage Therapy.
  • It is not within the scope of massage therapy to diagnose medical conditions, but to make assessments on where the focus of the treatment would best help the client.


Client Needs and Boundaries:

  • The client at any time can request adjustments to pressure, temperature, music volume, and/or focus in an area more or less.
  • To make the therapy most effective the client must be comfortable in the massage environment and may choose to leave on as much clothing as preferred, refuse any massage methods, or stop the massage at anytime.
  • The client will always be draped modestly. Only the area being massaged will be undraped.
  • Occasionally, an emotional release during a massage session will occur. If this happens it is ok to express those feelings or request privacy, end or pause the session. The client is in control.


Existing and New Medical Conditions:

  • It is the responsibility of the client to keep the therapist informed and up to date on any medical condition, treatment or changes in one's health.
