In the event that a customer/visitor/client causes a breakage or damage to an article, item, fixture or fitting, no party is to profit from the incident.
However, the cost of the article, item, fixture or fitting is to be covered by the liable party.
It shall be the decision/discretion of Management to enforce this clause or ‘turn a blind eye.’
One example, (though not at all exhaustive) whereby a cost will be passed on to the customer/visitor/client is in the event of hair dye being transferred to spa towels and gowns.
A laundry fee or replacement towel fee will be due.
Only, during health and safety talks/tours all customers/visitors/clients are made aware that they must request a replacement towel, (a disposable towel is in fact given in its place), should the customer/visitor/client suspect that their hair dye is one that transfers to fabric.
In addition, all breakages and or damages must be reported to staff immediately, by way of health and safety management.
Sheldon Spa does not have the facilities to accommodate children under the age of 16 years old as of December 2017.
Sheldon Spa is a day spa, not an alternative medical centre, advisor or practice.
There are no ‘in-house’ Doctors/GP’s/Nurses or Medical Practitioners present.
Therefore, all visitors who may suspect that their health/fitness ability/ailments/allergies could be a contraindication are expected to have sought advice and/or written permission from the appropriate health advisor to partake in facility use and treatment experience.
In addition, where applicable evidence of such must be produced at the time of arrival for admission to the spa/treatment rooms.
For example, a pregnant woman may not partake in treatments of any description during the first trimester of her pregnancy. Nor may she use a hot tub or sauna.
As a result, Sheldon Spa reserves the right to refuse entry to its spa altogether as well as the right to make changes to pre-booked treatments by its visitors if it should deem it crucial/beneficial to sustaining/maintaining one’s health and well-being.
However, should a visitor choose not to accept/proceed with the safe/suggested treatment alternative, no charge/fee will be upheld.
