We encourage you to arrive a minimum of 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to check in and to experience our pre-treatment skin health rituals in our innovative and signature Grown Alchemist Clean Room.
Should you be running late for your scheduled treatment, we kindly ask you to phone the Retail Lab on (03) 9113 9558.

Depending on the time available and our other bookings, we may propose a modified treatment solution for you or offer an alternative booking time.
We recommend you arrive for your appointment in comfortable clothes. For most treatments, our Therapist will leave the room while you remove your outer layers of clothing (leaving your underwear on of course) before making yourself comfortable in our luxurious treatment bed. Each treatment room features a floor-to-ceiling mirrored closet for you to store your personal belongings during your treatment.
A minimum 50% booking fee is required at the time of making your booking.

Should you feel a product is not appropriate, we will do our best to use an alternative product or provide a modified treatment protocol.
There are certain therapies such as Vitamin Therapy, Light Therapy and Nutrient Enhancers that are not recommended during pregnancy and cannot be adapted. We will recommend alternative treatment suggestions to help you achieve your desired skin goals.
