No Scents Is Good Sense!

Some of our clients and therapists are hypersensitive to perfumed products. Such products can trigger a dangerous asthma attack and/or other symptoms such as headaches, nausea and sinus irritation in these people.

Please do not wear or apply any scented products while in our clinic.

Thank you for your co-operation.
