Terms and Conditions
Payments can be made by cheque, cash or online. At the moment I don’t have the facility to accept card payments in person. Payment in full must be made either before, or immediately after your Shiatsu session or Qigong class.
If you need to cancel a Shiatsu appointment with me, please let me know as far as possible in advance. Cancellation on the day of your appointment may incur a charge of £10.
All data I take from you in writing or verbally is kept strictly private. I never pass on your details to anyone else – I hate spam and unsolicited contacts as much as you probably do. When you give me your email address, I will check with you before putting you on my contact list to send you any information. Anything I send will be to do with Shiatsu or Qigong – either information on special offers I run from time to time for Shiatsu or information on Qigong classes. You will have the option not to opt into this at any time, of course.
I am committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Your personal information is not shared with or sold to third parties. You can be assured that any information provided to me by you will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
While I have no plans to change this policy, you should check this page from time to time to ensure that you feel comfortable with my policy, listed below. If you have any questions about it, please do not hesitate to contact me.
