Clients should tell their provider all their known medical conditions BEFORE THEIR MASSAGE APPOINTMENT. Clients should also keep the provider updated as to any changes in their medical profile, and understand that there shall be no liability on the provider's part should they forget to do so.
THERAPEUTIC PURPOSES ONLY
The providers listed on this website perform massages for therapeutic purposes only. It is understood that any inappropriate behavior such as excessive drinking, drug use, illicit or sexually suggestive remarks, or advances made by the client will result in immediate termination of the session, and client will be liable for payment for the "full" scheduled appointment. After the dispute is evaluated by GoMassage, and GoMassage determines that the client was at fault, the provider has the right to use GoMassage to process the client's credit card.
SELF SERVICE OPTION - BOOKING THROUGH OUR DIRECTORY
GoMassage has an online directory for people seeking massage therapy by certified professionals at a massage facility or at their home, office, hotel, or special event. GoMassage is not personally affiliated the massage providers listed on this website nor are we personally familiar with each one of their services. We do not support any illegal activities or practices and each provider is responsible for his or her own licensing, certifications and insurances, for whichever areas he or she provides these services, as required by law.
GoMassage does not fully investigate the individuals who have listed themselves on this site nor does GoMassage evaluate the quality of their services.
While GoMassage monitors the reviews of the various individuals listed on this site, the listing of such individuals does not constitute an endorsement by GoMassage, of their competence, skill, honesty or character.
It is up to the client (and members of his/her household or workgroup) using this website to do a full screening of the massage provider(s) on the phone before the appointment time.
The client uses the services of any provider listed on this website at his/her own risk, and GoMassage will not be liable for any injury or loss suffered by the client due to the negligence or deliberate misconduct, illegal or otherwise (including criminal conduct) of individuals listed on this website.
By using this service, client agrees to only contact the provider about obtaining a therapeutic massage.
If a client makes an appointment request through the website, he/she understands that there may not be a suitable provider in his/her area. Client also understands that if a message is left for a provider that a provider may not return the call or email.
If Client is under the age of 18, an adult must be present somewhere in the same location at all times during the massage.
Any client feedback or reviews of therapists, etc. that are submitted to GoMassage by clients or potential clients via web forms or email may be used in publicity material such as website promotions, brochures, newsletters, or other publications.
All financial transactions regarding massage appointments booked through the directory are between the client and the provider.
CLIENT DISPUTES WITH PROVIDERS
For appointments booked directly through the online directory, any disputes between client and provider have nothing to do with GoMassage. However, client is free to post a negative review of that provider on the GoMassage website if he or she is unhappy with the service provided. Provider can also post a rebuttal to that review.
Providers on our network also reserve the right to refuse giving a massage to a client after speaking with them on the phone before the appointment (as long as they do not commit to the appointment). Providers can also refuse giving a massage after meeting the client in person before the massage is to begin.
APPOINTMENTS - REFUNDS
GoMassage does not offer any refunds if the client was unhappy with the quality of the massage, however you can request a refund from the individual provider. Refunds can often be provided for no shows, cancellations or lateness.
APPOINTMENTS - CANCELLATION
GoMassage has a 24 hour per provider cancellation policy. That means if the client books 2 providers, he/she needs to give 48 hours notice for cancellation. Failure to give this notice will result in being charged the full amount of the appointment.
If the client books the appointment from 24 hours to 1 hour before the scheduled appointment, there is no cancellation, and he/she will be charged the full amount of the appointment if the provider reports the incident to GoMassage.
For Event Appointments (Spa Parties, Corporate Massage, etc.) GoMassage requires a 48 hour notice per provider for cancellation. Failure to give this notice will result in being charged the full amount of the appointment. For events that are longer than one day, the cancellation must occur at least 24 hours before the initial date of the ongoing event.
For our self serve bookings, massage providers using GoMassage have a 12 hour cancellation policy (per massage provider). If you, as a client, do not receive this notice, you should contact email@example.com
APPOINTMENTS - RESCHEDULING
FOR SELF SERVE (Online Directory) - The rescheduling of appointments is between the provider and the client. However, if the client does not give 12 hours notice prior to rescheduling, the provider does have the right (if he, she chooses) to charge the client for the full appointment.
FOR CONCIERGE & EVENT APPTS (Booked through GoMassage staff) - For home or hotel table massages, if you give us 24 hrs per therapist notice, there are no fees. For event massages, we would need 48 hrs per therapist notice. Anything less than that, there are going to be additional fees charged which will depend on the circumstance.
APPOINTMENTS - LATENESS
CLIENTS: Clients have a 15 minute grace period for their massage. If he/she arrives at said location within 15 minutes of the appointment time, there will be no additional charges. Anything beyond 15 minutes will be taken off the time of the massage.
MASSAGE PROVIDERS: There is no lateness grace period for massage facilities. Massage facilities should work this out with the client individually. Mobile massage providers have a 30 minute grace period on their arrival time. If they are late beyond 30 minutes, then client can choose one of the following:
A. Client can refuse the massage entirely and get a full refund.
B. Client can get client 25% off the massage - getting the full duration of the original appointment.
C. Client can get an extra 30 minutes for free (on top of the full duration of the original appointment.)
The time for the lateness is usually taken off the final bill, or the therapist can add extra time at the end. This is something to be worked out on an individual basis with the GoMassage staff.
APPOINTMENTS - NO SHOWS
CLIENT NO SHOW: If the massage provider shows up at the location, and the client is not there within 15 minutes of the specified time, then the massage will not be performed, and either the massage provider (if self serve) or the GoMassage staff (if concierge) has the right to charge the client in FULL.
MASSAGE PROVIDER NO SHOW: If the massage provider(s) does not show up at all (or beyond 1 hour after the appointment time), client does not have to accept the massage, and there is no payment required. If you, as a client, experience this, you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
APPOINTMENTS - MASSAGE DURATION / RATE
Client agrees to pay the agreed upon rate of the provider at the time the appointment was booked. A 60 minute massage time includes dressing and undressing, but it does not include travel time, setting up the table, or putting away the table. The actual hands on time will be approximately 55 minutes. For mobile appointments, clients should make sure they have a room that is cleared for the massage chair/table before the provider arrives.
APPOINTMENTS - PARKING POLICY
All parking charges must be reimbursed to the provider or paid to the GoMassage staff.
