Cancellation Policy
We reserve time especially for you. Unless you are completely sure that the appointment time and date work for you and yours, we can not book the appointment, Cancellations and no shows affect us significantly. Therefore, we require 24 hours notice for all individual cancellations, 48 hours for 2 or more services booked and 48 hours on all Couples sessions , (With the exception of the "Creme De La Creme" session, which is 72 hours) in order to avoid being charged the full price of the sessions. Rescheduling will not waive the fee. All "no shows" will be charged at full value. If possible, late arrivals will receive an extension of their scheduled appointment however, when this is not possible, full payment is still expected. Please assure your fully allotted time by arriving at the office 15 minutes early. Emergencys do happen and often we will take that into account. However, proof will be required. In addition, any cancellations due to sickness will require a physician's note. The physician can not be yourself or family member.  Thank you for co-operation and understanding. 

Couples Massage Deposits and Multiple Session Deposits Are Non-refundable 



When coming in for pain or discomfort, gratuities are not accepted. Tipping a healthcare professional is not appropriate, and we appreciate your honoring our policy. When coming in for relaxation or preventative maintenance and in addition you happen to have pain or discomfort, then a gratuity is welcome. So, "because" or "for" pain.... no tip, with pain... tipping is appreciated! Please note that most gift certificates do not include a gratuity. Should you wish to leave a gratuity, 15-20 percent is customary, but you may of course leave more or less, depending on the quality of the service. You may leave it at the reception desk when you pay your bill or give it directly to the therapist. Be assured your therapist will receive 100% of the gratuity.

Spa Parties and Events

Long Island Spa Parties: $200.00 deposit is required to reserve the date and time. The length of time for each session must be decided and the approximate amount of guests must be given at this time. Each guest must leave a deposit of 50% within 1 week of the official booking. Cancellations more than 2 weeks prior to party date will be given a complete refund except for a $100.00 set-up fee. Cancellations less than 2 weeks prior to party will be charged 50% of full service up until 2 days prior to date in which there will be no refund.


Final Payment: All final payments must be made at least 2 weeks prior to your party date. Refunds will not be given for any cancellations 2 days prior or less to the party, unless medical documentation from a licensed physician, unrelated to any of the guests, is received.


Please be aware that there are contraindications for Massage Therapy sessions and for additional services. Forms which includes a Medical History are required. We ask that these be returned at least 2 weeks prior to your party so that we may properly accommodate all of your guests. We cannot be responsible for any cancellation of services due to a lack of a proper medical history prior to the sessions.


A party room premium of $100.00 will be applicable on all Spa Parties. Most guests choose to share in the cost of this fee and often share in the cost of the guest of honor, as well. Host/Hostess gratuity is not included in the package but can be added onto your bill.


Focused and Medical Massage requires communication during treatment, therefor we can't accommodate these type of requests for Spa Parties.


Gratuity Policy - For our guests' convenience, we automatically add 30 cents per minute of your massage or facial session gratuity to your credit card when services are charged, so you will not have to be concerned with it on the day of your SPA Party . Guests will have the discretion to adjust these gratuities based upon the level of service received. This includes the option to adjust gratuities (up or down) for any reason. In order to do so, the guest will need to call the Director or Event Coordinator within 24 hours after the party. Just to be clear...if you purchase a package for $100 which includes a 60 minute massage, you will be charged 30 cents for the 60 minute session, not for the length of the party or a percentage of your package.


Our Event Coordinator will provide all necessary service arrangements throughout the planning process. Please contact us to come in for a tour, make reservations, or for additional information. You may call us at 631.462.HAND (4263) or email Marla at marla@longislandmassagespaparties.com


Spafinder, SpaWish, Spa Week, Spa Emergency & other Gift Certificates can not be used for Mobile Services or Parties. Focused and Medical Massage requires communication during treatment, therefore we can't accommodate these type of requests for Spa Parties.

Mobile Service Policies


Hands On Gift Certificates

Gift Certificates bought at discounted rates can be used for the service originally purchased or redeemed for a different service, however any discounts or coupons used lose their value. GC's sold for "dollars worth of services" may only be used for regular priced sessions. We are not responsible for lost or stolen certificates.Gift certificates must be used to purchase goods and cannot be used toward additional gift certificates. Gift certificates cannot be returned for refund. If an order exceeds the amount of the recipient's gift certificate, the difference must be paid with a credit card or other accepted payment method.We will honor some expired gc's, however they will be honored at current, regular prices only and the difference in money will be expected to be paid by the receiver of the gift certificate. Please note we do have black out days that certain gift certificates can not be used, such as Valentine's Day and Valentine's Week. February 14th - February 25, 2018 are Black Out Dates! Only Valentine's Couple's Packages can be booked in the Couple's Suites. Foot soaks are not available during this week, Mid-week specials do not apply, etc. Specific therapists are not guaranteed but we try our best to accommodate your needs.

Annual June One Day Sale and Pre-Black Friday, Black Friday and Cyber Monday Special Priced Relaxation Massage Gift Certificates

These certificates are for relaxation massage sessions. Should you wish to upgrade to a medical massage session, then there will be an additional charge of $5.00 per half hour as of January 2017. 

Please, keep in mind that these 2 sales are not advertised to the public. They are our way of saying “Thank you for your patronage.”  We want to continue offering you these great rates, but we ask that you help keep our costs down by following the rules we have laid out. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

One Day Sale Certificates are CASH ONLY. We have significantly reduced these prices, therefore, if you must pay by credit card, there will be a $5.00 Service Fee for each Certificate. Pre-Black Friday, Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be paid for by credit card, but again, not paying processing fees helps keep our costs down which can be passed down to you!


The maximum amount of gift certificates per customer are 4 for yourself and 2 for others. One Day Sale Gift Certificates are NOT TRACKABLE. If lost or stolen, gift certificates are unable to be redeemed.


Expiration Dates

 When used after the expiration date, certificates revert back to the original purchse price and may be used towards any regular priced session.

An individual can use up to six certificates at these special rates.  If you have more than six, you can use the certificate at the price that was paid for it, and receive an additional $10 discount towards the REGULAR price of a massage or facial..

Spafinder, Spawish, Spa Emergency Certificates, Etc.

Gift Certificates or Gift Cards from outside vendors can only be used on regular priced relaxation services. Should you wish to upgrade to a medical massage there will be an additional $5.00 fee per half hour payable by credit, debit, cash or check only.

Your Personal Information

We never use or share personally identifiable information. We will never sell, lease, or rent any personally identifiable information about you or your business to any third party. Only with your written consent, we will release any medical records that are requested.


No-Fault Insurance

Our 24 hour cancellation and rescheduling policy also applies to our patients that use no-fault insurance for payment. Due to the fact that insurance does not cover cancelled, rescheduled or missed appointments, we do require that the client, not the insurance company, pay for any missed appointments, late arrivals or cancelled appointments. No-fault patients must be seen by a variety of our therapists and weekend appointments may be limited.  No-fault clients many not see the same therapist more than 1x per week, as well as not being able to see the same therapist twice in a row. Each therapist brings a different expertise to the table. We have found that this is what works best.

In addition, clients must understand and agree that they will inform Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy, P.C., immediately should they decide to seek the services of a Physical Therapist, Chiropractor or another Massage Therapist. Due to some insurance companies' regulations, services for Massage Therapy may not be covered once you seek care from a Physical Therapist, Chiropractor or a different Massage Therapist, even for a different diagnosis and services. You will be responsible for any fees not covered by your insurance company.

Very often an Independent Medical Exam (IME) will be ordered from the insurance company. More often then not, benefits will be denied immediately following the IME. You must notify us of your IME and you will be responsible for any payments not made by your insurance company. Very often patients decide to put their therapy on hold once they have the IME and begin again once it has been approved by the insurance company.
