We will not carry out a treatment without the patch test being carried out at our salon.
If you do not attend a patch test appointment and you have already booked your treatment that appointment will be cancelled by the salon, and payment may still be required in line with the salon’s terms and conditions.
Don’t worry if you’re feeling nervous and not sure what to expect. Our therapists are always happy to help and here to make your experience enjoyable. If you have any questions, please just ask.
During treatments, therapists are well trained in the art of draping to respect modesty at all times. Clients are requested to wear suitable attire at all times during treatments, disposable pants and boxer shorts can be provided for you on request.
We strive to provide the highest standard of treatments. Please let your therapist know if there is any way that they can improve your treatment or comfort, for example, deeper or lighter massages pressure, an extra towel, different music or lighting, so your therapist can make any necessary changes.
Please drink plenty of water as this assists all beauty and holistic treatments. Local Glastonbury water is available in the reception area.

SERVICE LEVEL COMMITMENT
We aim to ensure that you will experience an unparalleled level of service and we are so confident of this, that in the unlikely event you are unhappy about any aspect of treatment received, we will work with you to resolve the complaint to your satisfaction.
Any problems must be reported and seen at the salon by a senior member of staff within 48 hours of the initial treatment so that we can talk to you in person and to see the condition of the complaint ourselves. We will not make commitments simply over the phone, email or facebook message.
We will re-do or provide an alternative treatment (within 1 week of initial treatment) of equal value completely free of charge. The original service will not be refunded. The Violet Butterfly will not give cash, cheque or credit card refunds for any reason for any services.

Please note, that for the insurance, health and safety reasons, and for the comfort and relaxation experience of all our clients, we’d politely like to remind you that we are a child free salon and do not offer child care facilities whilst you are having a treatment, this also ensures we create a peaceful area that is restful for all, especially parents and guardians so that they get their time to relax.
We strive to create a calming, tranquil ambiance, we kindly ask you to turn your mobile off or to silent whilst in the salon, not only to ensure your own relaxation but for others also.
