OUR POLICIES, TERMS & CONDITIONS
You can make an appointment with Olive Sanctuary in a number of ways:
Online at our website: olivesanctuary.co.uk/book-online
By telephone on 01825 508150
By email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you've made your booking, you will receive an email confirming all the important details, along with a second email reminder 24 hours prior to your appointment or an SMS message if you have opted in.
If this is your first appointment with us, depending on the individual therapist, you will also receive a New Client Consultation Form via email the day before your appointment or your therapist will ask you to complete a consultation form when you arrive. Please complete this because we will not be able to treat you until you have.
Treatment Cancellations and Late Arrival
Please cancel as soon as possible if a foreseeable event is likely to prevent you from attending, for example, illness or adverse weather conditions.
We require a minimum of 24 hours’ notice to cancel an appointment unless your appointment is with Frankie who requires 72 hours notice. Afrodite cancellation terms can be seen HERE .
If you don’t let us know within this time, you will incur the charge for the full appointment. This is because we are unlikely to fill your appointment slot and still need to cover our costs.
However, if you need to cancel at short notice because of Covid-19 related symptoms, a long-term medical condition which varies from day to day, or because you are more than 37 weeks pregnant and are showing signs of labour, then the additional charge will not be applied.
Please respect our agreed appointment time. We appreciate that sometimes, things happen, and you may arrive a little later or need to leave a bit earlier than planned. However, to ensure our stringent hygiene standards are maintained between appointments, we will be unable to make up the missed time by overrunning or by adding time to subsequent appointments.
Please be aware that self employed therapists using The Olive Sanctuary may have different cancellation or late arrival policies.
Reflexology School Bookings
All courses are held face to face.
If you change your mind about a booking, you can request a refund within 14 days of booking the course. After 14 days we are not able to offer a refund due to the small numbers we teach.
Alternatively, you can swap your chosen date if there is more than 2 weeks’ notice given before the course date, but a £20 admin fee will apply.
Occasionally course dates may be cancelled. If this happens, we aim to give you at least 4 weeks’ notice whenever possible.
Events & Workshops Bookings
There are no refunds available for workshops, events, and retreat tickets. This is because we have secured accommodation and services in advance to ensure the best experience for you.
