How to Get Started

  1. If you have insurance, please begin by verifying your coverage. This process takes just a couple minutes.  
  2. Call or text us to schedule an appointment. (203)451-9865. 
  3. Then complete your New Patient paperwork as soon as possible. You can photograph and text it to us (203)451-9865. We will confirm. 

At Your First Appointment * Covid Precautions

  • Pls text us upon your arrival and wait in your car.
  • We will meet you at the front door at your appointment time.
  • Pls bring a photo ID to your appointment. (New patient paperwork too if you haven’t already sent it to us.)
  • Masks are required. We will ask you to wash your hands upon entering. 
  • Best clothes to wear:  Clients will be discreetly draped at all times. Undergarments are worn during every treatment. We recommend loose clothing that can be rolled up above your knees and elbows. We might need access to your back, belly, or hips. Shorts, sweat pants, tank tops work well. 
  • Food/Drink: Pls avoid caffeine right before the treatment so that you can relax. It's best to eat lightly beforehand. Having some food in your belly helps provide energy for the treatment. 
  • We request: Little or no make-up and perfume/cologne, pls. Thank you. 

Lateness Policy

Your appointment time is reserved exclusively for you, whether you show up or not. It is the patient’s responsibility to show up on time. If you are running behind, pls text or call us. A “late arrival” is 15 mins after the appointment time and the patient may be charged for a missed appointment. This policy stands for new and returning patients.

Missed Appointment & 48 Hours Cancellation Notice Policies

It is the Patient’s responsibility to cancel or reschedule appointments. We ask for 48 hours notice. We automatically charge $180/hr by credit card on file for a missed appointment, even if you are an “insurance patient” and do not normally pay for treatments out-of-pocket. To avoid this missed appointment charge, we request 48 hours notification to cancel or reschedule. This gives us time to pass along the appointment opportunity to another patient who might need it. Please respect our time and communicate with us in advance. You can text, email, or call us (203)451-9865 EST
