Company Info & Policy
FACE MASKS – Face masks are now optional for everyone. However, we strongly recommend that if you are not vaccunated or have a compromised immune system, that you continue to wear a face mask. Please let us know if you prefer that your service provider wear a face mask. Did you just get a COVID vaccine or booster? If so, please wait at least 36 hours before getting a massage or facial. Please contact us ASAP if you need to reschedule for this reason. This policy is subject to change as we continue to follow the guiidance provided by the CDC, the Maryland Department of Health, and our own indursty.
SCREENING – Before your scheduled service, you will be asked a few COVID related questions. Please, cancel or reschedule your appointment if you have an elevated temp or any other flu-like symptoms. As always, our late cancel fee will be waived if you must cancel your appointment due not feeling well or if you have been exposed to COVID. However, you must let us know as soon as possible.
HAND WASHING – We encourage our employees and customers to frequently use hand sanitizer and to wash their hands. You can wash your hands with soap and water upon arrival and upon entering the treatment room. (All of our treatment rooms have sinks.)
ARRIVAL – You may come on in for your scheduled appointment when you get here. We are no longer doing check in via text alerts. If you have intake forms to complete or update, aromatherapy to select, or need to use the rest room, please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.
INTAKE FORMS – If this is your first time working with us or if it has been a while and you need to update your contact information and / or medical considerations, please download and complete our Intake Form to bring with you. We have two Intake Forms that you may need to download, one for MASSAGE and one for FACIALS. If you are unable to complete your form ahead of time, please arrive 15 min. early to complete it here so that your scheduled treatment can start on time.
INSURANCE COVERAGE – Please let us know before you book if you have a medical referral so we can schedule you with a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT). We do not bill any insurance but we can provide a receipt upon request. If you have a health plan with a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA), you may want to look into whether you can use it to pay for your service.
PAYMENT – We require a credit card on file (VISA, MasterCard, Discover) to hold an appointment for contact-less checkout. We will email your receipt for contact-less payment. Please confirm your payment information upon arrival. Cash and BMC Gift Certificates may also be used.
TIPS – Please let us know BEFORE you check out if you would like to add gratuity. There is a $10 minimum purchase for credit cards transactions. We believe that the best tip is for you to tell your family and friends about us — and for you to schedule appointments on a regular basis.
BOOKING OPTIONS – Our online booking links will connect you to a mobile friendly version of our booking system. A 50% deposit is required for all appointments scheduled online using VISA, MasterCard, or Discover. Only the desktop version will allow you to use a Gift Certificate as the deposit. To use the desktop version to book an appointment, click here. You must call us (301-745-6490) to book group (2+) or couples massage appointments. You can also call our office to book an appointment or get more information about our services.
GIFT CERTIFICATES – Gift Certificates are non-refundable and are active for five (5) years after date of issue. However, if you call before the expiration date and we can’t get you in, we will make an exception if you book that day (for a future date). Only active gift certificates with a bar code can be used to purchase retail.
CANCELLATION POLICY – If you do not feel well or if you have been exposed to someone with suspected COVID or other contagious illness, please cancel or reschedule your appointment. As always, there is never a cancellation fee to cancel due to inclement weather or illness. Otherwise, we require 24-HOURS NOTICE to cancel or reschedule an appointment. Failure to honor this policy may result in a LATE CANCELLATION FEE of 50% of the value of your service. Neglecting to call us (or leave a message in our voice mail) to cancel an appointment will result in a NO SHOW FEE of 100% of the value of your service.
ILLNESS PREVENTION – We know how disappointing it is to find out your appointment needs to be rescheduled or canceled due to illness. The last thing we want to do is spread our germs to you, and we certainly don’t want you to spread your germs to us. We always understand if you need to cancel due to illness — and thank you for understanding when we need to do the same.
EARLY ARRIVAL – If this is your first visit (or if it’s been a while since your last visit), please download and complete your intake form prior to arrival and bring it with you. You can download your MASSAGE INTAKE or FACIAL INTAKE form and bring it with your to your appointment.
LATE ARRIVAL – We understand that delays may occur that are beyond your control, but please call and let us know as quickly as possible. We may not be able to extend your service time if it impacts the therapist’s schedule. Depending on the circumstances, you may be charged for the full service.
ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY – We have zero tolerance for inappropriate behavior of clients or guests. This includes but is not limited to rude or hostile behavior to staff or other guests, as well as sexual, racial, or politically inappropriate comments, questions, or actions. Full payment will be required, and we will ask you to leave our premises. Local law enforcement will be notified if necessary.
WAITLIST – If you can’t find the appointment you’re looking for, we invite you to be added to our Waitlist. There may be a specific day or time, or maybe your favorite practitioner is not available. We will call you if the time opens. You are under no obligation to take the appointment if it doesn’t work for you. There may be more than one person on the list for that time, so we will start by calling the one that’s been waiting longest. If we don’t reach you directly, we will attempt to reach the next person. Whoever answers or calls back first gets the appointment.
REVIEWS – If you have a positive experience with us, please take a minute to leave a review on our web site. We also invite you to leave a review on Google. If you have any negative experience or if you have concerns about the service you received please contact the owners (Jan or Mary) directly. We want to know ASAP so that we have the opportunity to make it right. Your experience is important to us and your input helps us improve.
