Appointments can be booked online or by phone. Same day appointments can be made but a credit card number must be provided and our cancellation policy will be in effect immediately. We do advise you to book as far in advance as possible to receive your preferred choice of times and treatments. As an added convenience we have both male and female therapists. Unless you state a personal preference, we will schedule your appointment depending on availability.
We ask that you please place cell phones and other mobile devices on silent mode because the environment at Zen Forest is one of quiet and relaxation. You are also required to complete a health history profile/release form. This is in accordance with the CMTO (College of Massage Therapy of Ontario) and CTCMPAO (College of Chinese medicine practitioners and acupuncturists of Ontario) This form will also allow our Registered Massage Therapist/Acupuncturist to be aware of any medical needs or conditions so that the appropriate consideration and modifications can be made during treatments.
If you do happen to arrive late for your appointment, we will try our best to accommodate your full booking. However, if that's not available, you will be billed for the full cost of the original booking.
