Cancellation & Missed Appointments

The American Acupuncture Institute requires 24 hours’ notice for all rescheduled appointments and cancellations; due to the nature of our business 24 hours’ notice to not accrue a forfeiture fee. While I understand that situations come up and emergencies happen, we do not double-book the schedule and late cancellations and missed appointments greatly impact our business.


Fees for missed appointments:
You may cancel or change your appointment up to 24 hours in advance of your treatment via our online booking feature or via phone. For changes or cancellations less than 24 hours in advance, you will be charged a forfeiture fee of $30 for any acupuncture appointment. If you fail to show up for your appointment you will be charged $30. Thank you for understanding.
