Frequently asked questions

What is your cancellation policy?


Since we understand that unexpected situations happen to us all, we allow one grace cancellation at no charge. We will have to get a credit card on file for your next appointment in case there is a second occurrence. The following charges will then be applied:

  • You cancel your appointment/s on the same day - 50% of total service fees
  • You do not call and do not show up for your appointment/s - 100% of total service fees

Some Tips to avoid charges:

  • If you are ill, it is best for everyone to be proactive and cancel your appointment the day before so no charge is applied.
  • If you have a crazy busy schedule which causes frequent cancellations, it is best to schedule an appointment closer to your choice day or even the day of; though we won't be able to guarantee an opening.

* Special exceptions may apply




Do I need to bring anything for my spa service/s (massages, facials, body treatments)?


Our Locker Rooms are equipped with:

  • Keyed lockers so you can relax during your service knowing your items are safe.

  • Luxurious robes of different sizes:

    • "One size fits all" - which is really a medium/large

    • XL/XXL

    • 3XL - Bamboo material which can be worn in the Infrared sauna in lieu of a bamboo towel to allow maximum benefits from the IR waves.

  • White cloth body wraps which fit nicely under our robes and are generally used for facial services if desired. They can be worn in the sauna and steam room also.

  • Slippers in a variety of sizes. You are always welcome to bring your own slippers/flip flops.

  • Bamboo towels which are naturally anti-microbial and antiviral. They also allow the Infrared waves pass through while in the IR sauna in order to achieve the fullest benefit.

  • Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna with Chromatherapy lights (Free with spa service): Although the IR sauna has the capability to cycle through all ranges (near, mid, far), the saunas are set on the far infrared setting - which is used for detoxification and weight loss. If you would like to take advantage of the other infrared ranges for pain relief, cell regeneration, etc., we recommend you schedule a private sauna session (additional charges will apply).

  • Shower & Steam Shower (Free with spa service): There are two showers provided to rinse off before/after your service:

    • The stand alone shower is for the modest person's ultimate privacy. It includes an over-sized area equipped with a teak bench for an additional place to change before/after your service in private.

    • The "steam shower" is located in the public "steam room". It is intended for those who want to rinse off after finishing a steam session and choose not to move to the private stand alone shower.

**Please Note: The steam shower is not a private shower and the steam is not intended to be used simultaneously with the shower. For your safety - PLEASE DO NOT USE THE STEAM AND THE SHOWER AT THE SAME TIME
