Massage Etiquette

Paperwork & Arrival - It is suggested that clients complete all paperwork online when registering. If paperwork cannot be completed online prior to the appointment, plan on arriving 15 minutes early. The length of a massage may be shortened in the event of a late arrival as not to inconvenience other clients.

Showering - Since the SRWC is a fitness facility, it is understandable that clients may be working out prior to an appointment. However, please be considerate of the massage therapist and shower prior to the massage.

Cancellations - Advance cancellations (more than 24hrs notice) can be made in the Acuity app or by contacting Beach Balance. Late cancellations (less than 24hrs notice) must be made with Beach Balance via phone. A $25 charge will be applied for any no shows or late cancellations. This amount will be deducted from the initial massage payment and the remaining balance (excluding service fees) will be refunded. Refunds will be processed within 3-5 business days of the originally scheduled massage.

Inappropriate Language and Actions - Beach Balance massage therapists are certified by the State of California. All massages are therapeutically oriented and non-sexual. Any remarks or gestures made by a client and interpreted by the therapist as harassment or sexual in nature will result in the immediate termination of the session without refund.

Injuries or Other Medical Conditions - Massage therapy is not a substitute for medical examination, diagnosis, or the treatment of injuries or other medical conditions and may be contraindicated for some individuals. Massage therapists are not qualified to perform spinal or skeletal adjustments or diagnose, prescribe, or treat any physical or mental illness. Massage therapists have the right to terminate a session and request a physician’s clearance from a primary care physician for any contraindications written in the client intake form and/or communicated by a client or observed by the massage therapist during sessions.

Tipping - Though tipping is appreciated among massage therapists, it is not expected among any customer. Any tips should be provided directly to a massage therapist as Beach Balance staff personnel are not permitted to handle gratuities.
