General Liability Release
I Therefore Release the Company and the Individual massage therapist from ALL liability concerning these injuries that may occur during the massage session.
Inappropriate Behavior Policy
Massage Therapy is for relaxation and therapeutic purposes ONLY. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SEXUAL COMPONENT TO MASSAGE WHATSOEVER. Any insinuation, joke, gesture, conversation, or request otherwise will result in immediate termination of your session and a refusal of ANY and ALL services in the future. You will be charged the full service fee regardless of the length of your session. Depending on the behavior exhibited we may also file a report with the local authorities if necessary. Treat your therapist with respect and dignity and you will be treated the same in return.
Effective June 1st, 2023: Due to the increased number of no-show appointments and late cancellations, we require pre-payment for your soonest upcoming appointment. If pre-payment is not made, we can't hold that appointment slot for you.
We respectfully ask that you provide us with a minimum of 48 hours' notice of any schedule changes or cancellation requests.
Please understand that when you cancel or miss your appointment without providing more than a 48 hours notice, we are often unable to fill that appointment time. This means our other clients who are serious about receiving massage treatments miss the chance to receive the services they need.
For this reason, if you cancel an appointment made online, over the phone, or through text message within the 48 hours before your appointment you will be charged 100% of the service amount, and you will not receive a refund.
If you cancel or reschedule within more than 48 hours OR in the event of an emergency or sickness outside of your control, your pre-payment will be held as an account credit.
No-Show or No Call
Not showing up for an appointment without proper notification will result in an AUTOMATIC 100% of service fee.
We reserve the right to require a credit card number or pre-payment to be given to book appointments so that appropriate fees may be charged if a late cancellation or no-show does occur. We reserve the right to charge your card placed on file to uphold this policy.
We understand that emergencies can arise and illness does occur at inopportune times. IF you have a FEVER, a known infection, or have experienced vomiting or diarrhea within 24 hours prior to your appointment time, we REQUEST THAT YOU CANCEL your session. Inclement weather may also result in the need for cancellations. We will do our best to give advanced notice if we are closing or need to cancel due to bad weather and we ask you to do the same. Please DO NOT risk your own safety trying to make it to your appointment. Late cancellations due to emergency, illness, or inclement weather will generally not result in any missed session charges but this is determined on a case-by-case basis.
Our services are NON-TRANSFERABLE and NON-REFUNDABLE.
This means you CANNOT book under your name and then give that appointment time and payment to another person. If you would like to get someone a massage, you would need to either book under their name or purchase a gift certificate.
Please see our Cancellation Policy for further details.
All PROMOS are NON-TRANSFERABLE and will be held to their expiration date.
Birthday Promos are NON-TRANSFERABLE and expire 30 days from the client's birthday.
We request that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to allow time to fill out any required paperwork as well as answer any intake questions your therapist may have. We understand that issues can arise that may cause you to be late for your appointment. However, we ask that you call to inform us if this ever occurs so we can do our best to accommodate you. Appointment times are reserved for each client. So oftentimes we cannot exceed that reserved time without making the next client late. For this reason, arriving after your appointment time may result in a loss of time from your massage so that your session ends at the scheduled time. 100% of service fees will be charged even when sessions are shortened due to late arrival. In return, we will do our best to be on time, and if we are unable to do so we will add time to your session to make up for OUR late arrival or adjust the service charge accordingly.
BY SIGNING BELOW, [in your intake forms] you agree that you have read the above statements, procedures, liabilities, and policies. You also agree to abide by the above policies.
We are so grateful for your business and the opportunity to serve you as a client. We want you to know about the following changes and special events! We look forward to chatting with you about these exciting opportunities at your next appointment.
One of our goals is to be an industry leader and create income security for our massage therapists. We want them to be successful and for you to receive the quality care you deserve and have come to expect. Another goal that is personal to Jessica, the owner, is that she wants to step into community-focused actions, including starting Pocatello’s first Alternative Preventative Health Care Fair, offering continuing education to massage therapists, and looking into building a massage therapy school here.
The demand on her time has increased making it difficult to pursue these other dreams and goals. To help achieve these we have made a few changes to online bookings, cancellation policy, and prices.
We will have you update intake forms and consent to our policies ONCE PER YEAR. If you have any changes in health or medications since your last appointment, please let your massage therapist know.
ALL soonest upcoming appointments now require pre-payment. If you are to cancel with more than 48 hours, the pre-payment will be held as an account credit for your next massage.
All massages booked are held to the 48-hour cancellation, reschedule, no-show policy. Which is that you are required to give more than 48-hour notice to cancel or reschedule, if less notice is given then 100% of the service fee will be collected, (unless due to something completely out of your control like emergencies or sickness). Please see our “POLICIES” web page for further explanation.
Lastly, please remember if you schedule with Jessica, her prices are different from the other therapist's in our office.

Illnesses and Massage Therapy:
How do you sanitize?
We have always cleaned the room and sanitized in between appointments, and will continue to do so. By cleaning any and all tools used during the appointment with hot water, soap and rubbing alcohol, changing sheets, airing out room between appointments with open door, and sanitizing surface areas with Lysol.
Do you treat clients who are sick?
NO- if you are ever sick in ANY way, DO NOT come in. We have always required this of clients and our Massage Therapists to reduce the spread of ANY sickness.
What are your COVID Prescreen procedures?
During the worst of the pandemic, we required clients to prescreen before every appointment which included stating if they have any symptoms or been around people with possible symptoms etc. Now it is assumed that when you confirm your appointment that you are not sick and will not be a risk to our massage therapist and other clients.
Do you require masks to be worn?
Our clients' health is of the utmost priority. We follow CDC guidelines- those who have been vaccinated do not have to wear a mask. We expect clients to use their best judgement for their health. For clients who decide to wear a mask, they are informed of the dangers of wearing a mask while face down. This is to say that when you lay on your stomach it applies pressure to the lungs and reduces the amount of oxygen intake, coupled with the pressure added during a massage and the reduction of oxygen that masks create which can lead clients to pass out. The real danger is in that the massage therapist will not fully be able to tell the difference if you are asleep or passed out.
Does massage help overcome sickness?
NO, there are several contraindications of receiving massages while sick. Massage activates increased blood flow and helps to drain lymph. Because of this it can make you even more sick. By draining the lymph into a faster blood flow, the virus can travel faster than if you let your body do the work at rest. Thus, you can feel more sick.
BUT massage is beneficial after you have healed from the sickness and are no longer contagious. Because massage helps the lymphatic system drain any lingering by-products in the lymph, this can give you similar symptoms you had when sick.
What if it I think it is just allergies?
We trust clients to know and be honest if they are actually having seasonal allergies verses being sick and will work on them.
Can essential oils benefit sickness?
Essential oils do not claim to cure all or be completely fool proof. Everyone reacts differently to their use. If requested, the use of essential oils can be applied during your massage.
What are the risks?
Just like any other sickness, we can not guarantee that you will not come into contact with these viruses/diseases/etc. That is a risk you accept every time you exit your home. We will do our best to keep things clean and sanitized as always. You accept this risk when you schedule and keep your massage appointments.
What do I expect from my clients?
We ask each of you to be respectful of those around you. If you think you are coming down with something, please STAY HOME. If you think you will be putting others at risk please stay home.
If you have more questions please feel free to contact us.
