Terms & Conditions

NEW CLIENTS:

If you haven't done so before, you will need to complete a comprehensive initial consultation form (for new clients).  This is done (and held) on the Ovatu booking system (through Idunn's Garden Therapies) and may then be accessed at any time by the individual.

This can be followed by a (FREE) telephone consultation to discuss. You will be asked if you have any particular concerns or requirements. This is to help ascertain the most appropriate treatment plan for you and also to help you be clear about the treatment taking place.

This can take a little time, but is necessary for building up a picture of your treatment needs and whether or not any treatment will be suitable. As such it is important that you are honest about any conditions that you may have, plus your current lifestyle.

This needs to be completed at least the day before to allow appropriate time for a treatment plan and any aromatherapy blends to be formulated (where applicable).

In addition, a Privacy Notice plus Covid-19 declaration will need to be completed at least the day before treatment. Again, these will be sent separately.

⦁ Please review any paperwork that your have filled in before to ensure it is correct.
⦁ Please keep any meals light
⦁ Avoid drinking alcohol or taking any recreational drugs
⦁ Ensure you drink plenty of water and bring a bottle with you in case you are thirsty (hopefully we'll be able to offer you a drink again soon, but under current Covid guidelines you will need to bring your own).
⦁ Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.
