SoleCal Barefoot Massage & Wellness takes your safety & well-being very seriously. We follow Federal, State, County, & City guidelines as well as guidelines provided by ABMP to ensure you have a safe & pleasant experience.
Regarding masks: If you want to wear a mask, your therapist will wear one too. If either you or your therapist has the sniffles, you both will wear masks.
Health & Wellness policies (listed below) will always apply, so please continue to stay home if you’re sick, not feeling well, or have anything “lingering.” If there is a local surge or if hospitals are being affected, we will mask up again until the surge decreases.
MAKING YOUR APPOINTMENT
A valid credit card is required to reserve your first appointment along with prepayment of your first session in full at the time of booking. You may call to schedule or schedule online. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted for first time appointments. Additionally, personal checks will not be accepted for recurring appointments.
Once your appointment is scheduled, you will receive an automated confirmation text and email (make sure to check your junk/spam folders!). Your confirmation & reminder emails contain all the documents needed for your appointment & must be submitted no later than 24 hours prior to your appointment. The information you share is completely confidential and allows Ashley to further ensure a safe and effective session.

Scheduling an appointment as a surprise/gift for a new client, along with same day appointments, will not be accepted.
If the phone is not answered when calling SoleCal Barefoot Massage & Wellness, leave a message and Ashley will return your call at her earliest convenience during business hours. No texting.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Make sure your personal hygiene is acceptable when receiving your massage. Dirty feet will not receive work. No heavy odors or fragrances, as Ashley is allergic.
Services will not be given to anyone who has contagious illnesses. This includes the common cold, flu, etc., or anything that is “lingering,” such as a cough. If you are ill or not feeling well, you’ll need to reschedule your appointment out of respect, safety, and consideration to Ashley and her other clients. You can do so by calling or sending an email.
If you have had any surgery or cosmetic work within the last 72 hours to 9 months, an injury in the last 24 hours, or have a medical condition please let Ashley know prior to your appointment as it may affect scheduling.
If you’ve chosen to receive any vaccine or shot for preventative healthcare measures, Ashley requests that you wait a minimum of seven (7) days after your shot to receive bodywork. If you’re still experiencing symptoms after seven (7) days, please postpone scheduling an appointment until all symptoms are no longer present.
It is necessary to arrive 10 minutes before your appointment so we can start on time. Arriving early allows you to settle in and gives enough time for a thorough consultation.
Your appointment has been scheduled specifically for you. If you’re running late, call Ashley to let her know.
If for any reason you cannot arrive on time, your appointment will proceed and end as scheduled. Depending on your tardiness, Ashley will determine if there is enough time to begin your session. Regardless of how much time you actually receive, you will be responsible for the full payment of the service.
If you’re more than 15 minutes late and have not called, Ashley will assume you are not showing. This may result in Ashley leaving the building or starting her next client early. Either way, you are responsible for the payment of your session.
Out of respect and consideration to others, please plan accordingly and be on time.
Clients who forget or consciously choose to forgo their appointment for whatever reason will be considered a “no-show.”
If you have prepaid your service, Ashley reserves the right to automatically deduct payment in full to cover your missed appointment from these funds. If you have not prepaid, your credit card on file will be charged 15 minutes after your scheduled appointment time. If your card on file is declined, you will be billed an invoice via Square for the full amount of your missed appointment. This must be paid in full prior to rescheduling.
Cancelling appointments costs the business time, money, and clients. To be effective and fair to everyone, 24 hours notice in the form of a phone call or email is required when cancelling an appointment. If you are unable to give 24 hours advance notice, you will be charged the full amount of your session. If the phone is not answered when calling to cancel, leave a message to avoid unwanted charges.
If you have a membership and cancel with less than 24 hours notice, your session will be forfeited. Ashley reserves the right to automatically deduct payment in full to cover your missed appointment from these funds. If you have not prepaid your service, your credit card on file will be charged. If your card on file is declined, you will be billed an invoice via Square for the full amount of your missed appointment. This must be paid in full prior to rescheduling.
Clients who have had two cancellations with less than 24 hour notice within a one year time period will be required to pay a non-refundable retainer for the full amount for any future appointments to remain on the schedule.
Those who chronically reschedule appointments, will no longer be able to schedule appointments in the future.
RIGHT TO REFUSE OR TERMINATE SERVICES
Ashley reserves the right to use her discretion to terminate any session at any time. Clients may be responsible for payment of the terminated session. If the session was prepaid, it will be considered used and no refunds will be given.
Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. Any inquiry, act, or comment that is made to cause Ashley to feel uncomfortable in any way will result in immediate termination of the session with full payment required. These clients will be reported to the local police department and will no longer be allowed to receive treatments at SoleCal Barefoot Massage & Wellness.
Additional reasons to terminate may include, but are not limited to the following:
- Contagious illness such as cold, flu, or anything that is “lingering”
- Being under the influence of pain killers whether OTC or prescription, alcohol, or other drugs causing the client not to be able to accurately gauge pain
- Poor hygiene
- Being late, cancelling last minute, or chronically rescheduling
Clients holding a membership with SoleCal Barefoot Massage & Wellness agree to have the amount of one (1) SoleCal service automatically debited from their desired account at the first of each month. There are no long-term contracts and no initial fees. Unused sessions do not rollover.
If the card linked to the client’s desired account is declined at the first of the month, it is the client’s responsibility to pay the invoice by 11:59pm PST that day.
Failure to comply will result in an invoice sent via Square for the full amount of the membership invoice with the addition of an Insufficient Funds fee of $30.00 to be paid prior to their upcoming appointment. Invoices that are not paid by the end of the month will result in membership termination with the outstanding balance due immediately in full.
To cancel membership, written notice must be given thirty (30) days prior to the upcoming invoice.
