At The NOW Massage we strive to give you the best boutique massage experience possible. This FAQ is intended to provide you with answers to frequently asked questions. For more detailed information regarding our policies and procedures please review our Terms of Service.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR MY MASSAGE?
Please aim to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled massage to permit ample time for check-in. As a courtesy to other members and guests, we must start and end each massage service at the scheduled time; accordingly, we will not be able to extend the time of your service if you arrive late.
HOW DO I BOOK A MASSAGE?
You can schedule an appointment online, at www.thenowmassage.com, through The NOW Massage app, or by contacting the boutique directly by phone. We also welcome walk-ins, but due to high demand, we recommend scheduling in advance.
HOW DO I CANCEL A SERVICE THAT I’VE SCHEDULED?
A booked massage can be canceled by logging into your account on the website, through The NOW Massage app, or by calling the boutique. Please be aware of our late cancellation policy. We respectfully request at least 12 hours notice if you need to cancel or rebook your massage appointment. We charge 50% of the reservation made to the credit card on file to compensate our staff for missed wages when there is a last minute cancellation.
WHAT IF I FAIL TO SHOW FOR A SCHEDULED MASSAGE OR ARRIVE LATE?
If you miss your appointment or arrive 15 minutes past your scheduled service start time, the service is automatically canceled and the full price of the scheduled service is charged to the credit card on file. To ensure a relaxing experience, and get the full benefits of the massage, we advise guests to arrive on time (or early) for all scheduled appointments.
WHAT TYPE OF MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE?
The NOW’s Ritual Membership offers guests an opportunity to make massage a part of their monthly or bi-monthly self-care routine with packages that include: savings on a 50 or 80 minute massage, exclusive perks, roll-over credits and more.

HOW CAN I CANCEL MY MEMBERSHIP?
Ritual Members can cancel their recurring dues membership at any time by providing their boutique with 30-days written notice stating the desire to cancel. You may cancel in-person at the boutique or by sending an email to the boutique where your membership was purchased. All boutique contact information can be found under the locations page on our website.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO USE MASSAGE CREDITS?
Membership credits can accrue indefinitely until a Ritual Membership is canceled.

You will have 3 months from the date of cancellation to use any unused massage credits before they expire. No refunds are issued for unused credits.
