Because we care about your well-being we would like to let you know that receiving a massage or facial can over stimulate your immune system if you are already sick, which can make you feel worse. As such, we ask that you reschedule your appointment if you have a cold, fever or flu. In return, your therapist will not work on you if they are sick.
