Our brand new treatment space, which is located behind the cottage, has been designed with the intention to be fully wheelchair accessible. This includes the extra-wide pathways to the treatment space, the main doors to the building, and all internal doors. The facility, when fully completed, will also include a fully wheelchair accessible toilet.
Low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) stains and varnishes have been used throughout the interior of the treatment space. Where a low-VOC construction material could not be reasonably used, the material has been allowed to out-gas for an extended period, in order to help reduce exposure to chemically-sensitive clients.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide Chaperones at this time. However, you are always welcome to bring a family member or a friend along with you. Due to Insurance Liability reasons, we ask that you do not bring children into the treatment space. Hot surfaces, sharp objects, and potentially toxic items are present. So, for everyone's safety and peace of mind we ask that any children remain in your vehicle during your treatment. Infants in a car seat are, of course, exempt from this requirement.
