If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least two full business days in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. This is due to a number of factors, most notably being that the custom nature of our services and the unlikelihood of being able to reschedule that custom service in the same time slot. SCS intentionally accepts a limited number of clients so that you can be confident in accessibility and scheduling.
