TERMS & CONDITIONS

Cancellation Policy

Our Cancellation Policy requires a 24 Hr notice prior to the time of session start time.

Due to operating during a Pandemic, we understand that exposure issues arise. 

Being exposed to somebody who recently tested positive for any of the Coronavirus strands should be handled with care, even if vaccinated. After the expected quarantine, be sure to test again for a negative result before booking a session.

If cancelation of a sessions becomes fairly frequent, Braille Bodywork will begin to require a non-refundable deposit for each session booked or termination from booking. Refunds will be available only if the cancelation does not exceed the 24 hour notice window. 

Please cancel within the massagebook website or through text message.

Cupping and Gua Sha Marks

The suction pulls toxins, pathogenic factors, blood poison, dead lymph, and cellular debris from deep within the tissues to the surface. In terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, the stagnation can be just about any type of: blood, toxins, qi, or dampness. The suction created by cupping draws stagnant toxins, heat, energy, or fluid out of where it has accumulated and brings it to the body’s surface. 

Notice: When doing cupping therapy, bruise-like discoloration may occur. This discoloration may take up to 3-weeks on the body before returning back to normal color. 

  1. Blood Stagnation –Injuries, adhesions, menstrual irregularities

  2. Stagnant Toxins –Gastrointestinal disorders, rigid muscles, breast inflammation

  3. Qi Stagnation–Muscular pain, dysmenorrhea, pinched nerves

  4. Fluid Stagnation–Lung congestion, asthma, lactation dysfunction

Once an adhesion or congestion is pulled away from its source, fresh blood, energy, and fluids rush in to expedite healing.
