Arriving for your appointment
If you are new to the LWJ please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time. This will give you plenty of time to check-in, use the restroom, read & sign any forms requested by LWJ by Sheri. Arriving late will deprive you of precious appointment minutes as each session will be finished exactly on time as a courtesy to the next client. We fully understand that sometimes being late is outside of your control. We will always do our best to accommodate late arrivals (within 15 minutes after your appointment) by performing the most complete service possible in the time remaining. Please be aware that arriving 15 minutes after the scheduled time of your appointment will result in full charges (equivalent deductions from gift certificates) without the opportunity to reschedule. If you have a gift certificate and do not show up for your service or cancel 24 hours before your service time, your certificate is forfeited and voided.
We recommend that you plan ahead for your visit to LWJ by Sheri. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about our location, parking, and travel options.
When Sheri Marcantuono provides you with a price specific to a service, she will honor that price. If you decide to change services LWJ has the right to change the price according. You will receive an email, text or call that you are required to verify and send back to Sheri.
LWJ does not issue refunds on gift certificates purchased. We do not give cash back in lieu of your gift certificate. LWJ by Sheri reserves the right to offer you other services.
LWJ schedules by appointment only and your appointments are very important to Lotus Wood Journey. We understand that sometimes schedule adjustments are necessary. Therefore, we respectfully request at least a 24hour notice for cancellations or rescheduling of appointments. Please understand that when you forget, cancel, or change your appointment without giving enough notice, we miss the opportunity to fill that appointment time, and clients on our waitlist miss the opportunity to receive services. Therefore, we have a strictly enforced 24-hour cancellation. Our 24-hour cancellation policy gives us time to inform our waitlist clients of any availability. Any late arrival will shorten your appointment time and will not be made up by running into the next client’s scheduled appointment. Since we turn away other clients to hold your appointment time, we do realize that sometimes a sudden illness and emergencies can prevent you from giving 24 hours cancellation notice. Should you wish to cancel your appointment please email and you will receive a confirmation cancellation notification. There are NO refunds. In the event Sheri may have to cancel your event due to illness and/or emergency, please rest assured that in such events she will book you her next available time. We will notify you within 24 hours
Noise and Mobile Phones
This environment is one of tranquility and relaxation. Please respect all guests’ right to privacy and serenity. Please maintain conversations at a considerate volume in all areas and mobile phones or any other devices are to be kept silent or turned off when you are in the waiting area. If you bring someone with you please let them know you have agreed to these guidelines and rules and being with you they also have agreed.
For safety reasons and in order to maintain a peaceful, relaxing environment for all of our clients, we kindly ask that minors are not brought to your appointment.
Client questionnaire & health conditions

Failure to do will result in Sheri refusing to perform your treatment. Please advise us of any health conditions, allergies, or injuries which could affect your service when completing this form. It is your responsibility to let us know of any changes in your circumstances before your service begins. We also reserve the right to ask you to complete the Client Questionnaire every 6 months so that we can update our records.
