3. APPOINTMENTS & CANCELLATION
Please arrive 5-10 minutes early for your appointment so the clinic can run smoothly. This also allows for a few minutes of time to use the restroom, enjoy a cup of tea, and relax before your appointment begins.
Yūgen Wellness requires 24 hours notice for cancellation or rescheduling of appointments. We reserve the right to bill you the full cost of your session for any appointment that is cancelled or rescheduled without 24 hours notice.
Health and wellbeing are the responsibility of the individual. Advice and treatments provided by Yūgen Wellness are complementary and not an alternative to conventional medical opinion or treatment. Your only ‘diagnosis’ will be from a classical Chinese Medicine point of view and your treatment won’t claim to ‘cure’, but to bring about change which can help your body heal itself. During your initial consultation you should inform your practitioner of any medical conditions you have and those you have suffered with in the past, and provide updates at subsequent sessions if anything discussed prior has changed. It is your responsibility to check with your medical practitioner in case you suffer from a condition and/or are in doubt as to whether to have treatment.
