Believe it or not, cold and flu season is already upon us. As a reminder, there is no penalty for short notice cancellation due to illness so long as you let me know at least 2 hrs before your scheduled appointment.
Below is an excerpt from is a great piece my friend Allissa wrote on whether you need to cancel your massage (and why). If you've ever wondered if you should come in or cancel instead, give it a read by clicking below.
When to cancel
If you have nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea in the past 24 hours, or are still feeling punky from a recent bout of such things.
If you’ve had a fever in the past 24 hours, or fever-related symptoms. This includes chills, aches, and fatigue. Even if you’re keeping the fever down with medicine, you’re still sick. The fever counts.
If you are itchy, runny, and/or sneezy, and you’re not 100% certain it’s seasonal allergies. And even then, allergies may leave you so miserable that the hour on my table would be wasted time and money for you.
If you are coughing constantly, or just a lot.
If someone in your household is ill and you are feeling at all funky, please cancel.
There is often some gray area here, especially if you are in the recovery phase of a virus or bacterial infection. If you’re unsure about your situation, please call me before your appointment and we can make a decision together
