Booking Procedure

We now offer real-time online booking which you can access 24 hours, 7 days a week (valid credit or debit card required to secure your booking). Alternatively, please call us on 0118 958 8190 to book your desired massage or treatment (a 50% deposit will be taken to secure your appointment). Please see above for details of our cancellation terms and conditions.

 

Arrival Times

We respectfully request that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time in order to relax and prepare your mind and body. During this time, we will ask you to complete our medical history questionnaire.

 

Late Arrivals

At the time of booking your appointment we will allocate your massage therapist/treatment specialist, whose time is exclusively dedicated to you. If, however, you are late for your appointment then we will endeavour to keep your appointment duration to its original length provided there are no other appointments following yours. If another massage/treatment is booked in then you can either opt to shorten your massage/treatment time or reschedule your appointment for another time. **The latter option carries a 50% cancellation charge**

 

Last Appointments

Monday to Friday, last appointments are at 6.30pm for 60 minute treatments and 7.00pm for 20-45 minute treatments. Saturday and Sunday, however, last appointments are at 3.00pm.

 

Payment Methods

At reception, we accept all major credit and debit cards, cash and Ayurveda Retreat Gift Certificates. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept personal cheques, and American Express is currently not accepted for online bookings or purchases.

 

Refunds

We are happy to offer you a full refund on any herbal purchases you have made, provided you return them unopened within seven days of purchase.

 

Contraindications

Out of duty of care, our therapists are unable to carry out treatments on clients that are pregnant. The only exception to this is if carrying out a Pregnancy Massage, which is specifically designed to ease some of the discomforts of pregnancy. Even in the case of this particular massage, however, the client must: a) be in the second or third trimester, b) have a low-risk pregnancy and c) have verbal permission from their GP.

 

Treatment Packages

When you purchase a Treatment Package you will receive a discounted price for 5 x treatments. Because of this discounted price, payment is to be made upfront. Unfortunately, these packages are none refundable. However, you may choose to receive any unused value of your package in the form of a gift certificate, which will remain valid for 12 months from date of issue.

 

Mobile Phones

In order to preserve the tranquillity of Ayurveda Retreat, we respectfully request that you turn your mobile phone off or onto silent, on arrival.

 

Smoking

Ayurveda Retreat is a smoke-free zone.
