Tru Massage Therapy requires payment at the time of service. We require a minimum of 3-hour cancellation/rescheduling notification to avoid our $45 no show fee. Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time of your appointment. If you are late, your massage will still end at originally planned end time to ensure that there is adequate time for the next client to prepare for service.  We only schedule 15 minutes between clients so please be on time for your scheduled appointment.   If you flat out NO show with no call Prior to appointment time, you will be charged full price of the appointment you had scheduled to credit card used to hold the appointment as that length of time was reserved specifically for you.
