Terms and Conditions
COVID-19 BOOKING CONDITIONS
Please don’t attend the clinic or class if you answer ‘Yes’ to ANY of the following screening questions:
1. Have you tested positive for COVID-19? (subject to being certified by a medical health professional as fully recovered)
2. Have you had contact with anyone with confirmed COVID-19, or someone who has been in direct contact with a confirmed case, in the last 14 days?
3. Have you had any of these symptoms in the last 14 days?
Fever greater than 38°C
4. Are you currently experiencing fever over 38°C, difficulty breathing or cough?
By proceeding with a booking you agree with the stated terms and have answered the screening questions honestly and to the best of your knowledge.
Once a booking has been accepted by Terrace Acupuncture, the client will have entered into an agreement to have treatment based on these Terms and Conditions. The fee will be deemed due accordingly. The term ”treatment” is used for sessions of all therapies detailed on this website.
Payment for treatment is due in full either in advance or at the end of your session. Online and contactless payment options are available via online banking, or paywave at the clinic.
If for any reason you cancel a treatment with less than 24 hours’ notice, the full treatment price remains payable for the reserved time slot. This fee is payable within 7 days or at the next session, whichever is earlier.
Should you run late for an appointment, I may not be available beyond the time slot reserved for you, and in some cases, it may not be feasible to start the session. If at all possible, please inform me of any delay. Your session may be cancelled if I have not heard from you within 15 minutes of the agreed appointment time.
While treatments offered at Terrace Acupuncture aim to address your health concerns, it cannot replace the care of a General Practitioner. We recommend that you consult a GP regarding any conditions for which you are seeking treatment(s).
During your initial consultation you should inform your practitioner of any medical conditions you have and those you have suffered in the past, and provide updates at subsequent sessions if any of the discussed aspects change. It is your responsibility to check with your medical practitioner in case you suffer from a condition and/or are in doubt whether to have treatment.
