This is to ensure fairness to those on the wait list.
Lateness Policy: Due to COVID-19, please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for your appointment. This is because strict cleaning and room airing occurs between each client. If you are running late - please do not risk your safety to inform me. That said, unfortunately, any lateness will mean your treatment time is reduced to ensure it does not impact the next client and COVID cleaning.
Sickness Policy: If you are feeling at all unwell, particularly with fever, sore throat and/or cough – please contact me as early as possible to reschedule your appointment. Sharing is not caring in this instance and massage is not recommended for certain illnesses – these included. If in doubt – feel free to contact me to check! Due to COVID-19, your symptoms will be checked the day prior to your appointment and also upon your arrival, prior to entering the clinic. You will also be asked to use hand sanitiser upon entry and may have your temperature taken. This is for everyone’s safety and in-line with Trayah’s COVID Safety Plan.
