Code of Conduct
At Oona, our team members have diverse backgrounds, life experiences, hobbies and abilities. Our community is committed to working together against racism, sexism, homo/transphobia or any other forms of oppression. Our Community Code of Conduct has been developed to ensure that our staff can provide care without bias. This Code of Conduct applies to all patients, partners, staff, extended staff and any stakeholder working with us at Oona. We reserve the right to terminate care and contracts at our discretion based on the guidelines, below.
We are inclusive
We are accommodating
We have the privilege of serving a wonderful client population composed entirely of individuals who are either on the journey of trying to conceive, currently pregnant, or caring for their little ones at home. We deeply understand the unique challenges that arise during these significant life stages, and we kindly request your understanding as we navigate these experiences together. As a small business, we strive to accommodate the specific needs of our valued patients.
We acknowledge that unexpected circumstances can arise, causing (for example) last-minute disruptions to your childcare arrangements or hindering your ability to honor your appointment with us. We empathize with these situations, as we have also encountered similar challenges in our lives. However, it’s important to bear in mind that as a privately owned business, our practitioners are only compensated when clients attend their appointments. When there is a late cancellation or a no-show, the practitioner does not receive payment for their dedicated time and effort. In the case of a massage, a failure to attend could result in a 25% reduction in that practitioner’s income for the day. We kindly ask for your consideration of this financial aspect.
Rest assured, we are committed to being as accommodating as possible, fully understanding the difficulties you face. It is essential to recognize that, like any professional, our practitioners have their own financial obligations, such as mortgages, rent, childcare expenses, and grocery bills. By honoring your commitment to attend your appointment, you directly contribute to supporting their livelihood.
We are acutely aware of the specific challenges that come with being pregnant or having a new family. We consistently go above and beyond to cater to the needs of our clients. However, we kindly request that you also recognize the valuable work our practitioners provide and their rightful compensation for the time they have reserved for you.
Thank you for your understanding, and we appreciate your ongoing support in creating a nurturing environment for both our clients and our dedicated practitioners.
