Frequently Asked Questions

How does payment work?
Booking online requires payment at the time of purchase, while calling to book your appointment allows you the option to pay with cash, credit, or check at the time of the time of your clinic. Receipts will be sent to the email on your account file or can be printed by one of our front desk staff. Please call (201) 773-6647 to dispute any past purchases.
How does the Waitlist work?
Going on a waitlist for a class or camp will put you in a queue until a spot becomes available. You will be charged if you are reserving a waitlist spot online; in-person or on the phone you will not need to pay until the time of your clinic if you are added into the class. If a spot does not become available in your waitlisted class, a credit will automatically be applied to your account for an equivalent class that you can book in the future.
Early cancellations can be made 24 hours before any class, except camps, and a credit will automatically be applied to your account for an equivalent class in the future. Please call (201) 773-6647 to cancel. Camps must be cancelled 30 days in advance. A late cancellation will occur if a scheduled class is missed or is cancelled within the 24 hour window.
