Policies and How To

We are not just providing a high-quality technical massage, but creating an atmosphere of genuine caring and concern for your well-being. If you need any assistance or have any questions please contact us at info@originsthaispa.com, or by telephone at (703) 376 8711.

MAKE APPOINTMENTS WITH ORIGINS THAI SPA

We are service-by-appointment only at this time. We prefer that you book your appointment ahead by either calling us at (703) 376 8711 or by going online to www.OriginsThaiSpa.com. After you book online, you will receive confirmation by e-mail and/or by telephone. Be advised that a credit card is required to secure all appointments.

We suggest that you arrive about 10-15 minutes before your appointment time in order to complete the intake form, have a brief conversation with your massage therapist regarding your medical history and to discuss what you hope to accomplish with your massage treatment. It also helps to be early in order to relax and to allow you to free your mind. After all, a good massage isn’t just about physical benefits, but also about relieving the stress that can plague our bodies. Being in the proper state of mind helps to accomplish that goal.

FIRST TIME VISIT TO ORIGINS THAI SPA

For the first time you visit Origins Thai Spa, you may be required to complete an Intake Form. Please take a moment to carefully review the Intake form and to fill it out completely. In some cases, massage or bodywork can be contraindicated (inadvisable), so it is important that we know f you have a specific medical condition or specific symptoms which would affect our ability to give you a massage. In certain cases, a referral from your primary care provider may be required prior to service being provided.

DURING THE MASSAGE . . .

Sometimes – especially for those new to massage – you can feel quite vulnerable during a massage. That’s why it is important for you to communicate with your therapist throughout the massage if your therapist is applying too much pressure or if you feel uncomfortable.

AFTER THE MASSAGE . . .

After you finish the session, your therapist will discuss with you the areas where they found tension and tightness, and they will offer recommendations on what type of massage you will need moving forward. Before you leave, the therapist will offer you hot tea or water and a refreshing hot towel before proceeding to check out. We look forward to seeing you next time.

INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR

Origins Thai Spa provides the highest quality therapeutic massage. Origins has a Zero Tolerance Policy when it comes to inappropriate behavior. If any behavior is considered inappropriate, including touching, sexual innuendo and/or rude requests, the session will be terminated immediately and full payment is expected.

CANCELLATIONS / NO-SHOW POLICY

We understand that life happens, and we want to work with your busy schedule. If you are unable to keep you appointment, we ask that you cancel at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment (with no charge). Although we will make every effort to work with your schedule, we will be required to charge a fee equal to 50% of the treatment price for any no-shows or any appointments canceled less than 24 hours before the scheduled appointment

GRATUITIES

Our massage therapists aim to provide you with the highest quality massage treatments. Although gratuities are not required, they are greatly appreciated. The typical gratuity ranges from 15-20% of the price of the service and we prefer gratuities be separated with the service fees. If you would like to leave your massage therapist a gratuity, you may do so by leaving cash or a personal check. We are unable to accept tips on your credit card.

METHOD OF PAYMENT

We accept Visa, Master Card and cash
