2- General characteristics of the Services

This Contract constitutes a contract for the provision of services relating to traditional Chinese medicine, energetic osteopathy and wellness massage, covered by the Consumer Code. The Client is informed and accepts that the services provided are not intended to establish any diagnosis or treatment of illness.

These services may take the form of a health check-up, advice, information, energy treatment, support programmes, massages, workshops, editorial support (e.g. recipes), all of which are non-medical in nature. The services provided by the service provider do not in any way replace a diagnosis, a medical treatment or a regular or ongoing medical follow-up. They do not in any way exempt the consultation of a doctor, the latter being the only one entitled to establish a medical diagnosis as well as an adapted medical treatment. The service provider is not a doctor and only the client's doctor can decide to stop or modify a medical treatment. All services of an erotic or sexual nature are also excluded.

3- Conditions for the performance of the services

The service provider will carry out the services, in agreement with the client and, depending on the case, either :

  • on its professional premises,

  • remotely by an electronic means of communication such as videoconferencing, telephone, e-learning platform, provided that the client has Internet access and/or a telephone line,

  • at the client's home. In this case, the client undertakes to provide the service provider with a space (minimum 8 m2) where the hygiene, calm and safety conditions are compatible with the performance of the services. During the sessions, the service provider provides the client with all the necessary professional equipment (massage table, protective linen, towels, massage oils, music, etc.). The duration of the services indicated on the website does not take into account the time required to install the equipment, to dress and undress, which is why it is recommended to allow 20 to 30 minutes in addition to the time indicated.

The date(s) for the performance of the services will be agreed between the service provider and the client. The client undertakes to cooperate actively with the service provider and to provide him/her with the information necessary for the proper performance of the services, in particular any useful information on his/her personal situation (illness, pregnancy, particular fragility, disability, medical history and current medical treatment). For its part, the service provider undertakes to take all the care and diligence necessary for the proper performance of the services and to keep the client informed of any difficulties that may arise during the performance of the services.

Subject to the application of the provisions relating to the right of withdrawal for contracts concluded at a distance and off-premises, any cancellation of services by the client after signing the contract will only be taken into account if it has been made by telephone or email at the latest 48 hours before the planned date, except in cases of force majeure. In the event of cancellation after this period, the client is informed that the sums paid in advance will not be reimbursed and that he/she remains liable for the service initially planned according to the prices in force displayed on the provider's reservation website or, failing that, in its premises. The service provider also reserves the right to cancel, suspend or interrupt the services if, after signing the contract, he finds that the said services are clearly incompatible and/or unsuitable for the client's personal situation (illness, pregnancy, particular fragility, disability, age, etc.). In this case, the service provider undertakes to reimburse the client for the amounts paid in proportion to the services already provided.

The prices applicable to the client on the day of the conclusion of the contract are those in force and displayed on the service provider's reservation website or, failing that, in its premises. The prices are in principle expressed exclusive of taxes and costs (for example, travel costs for services provided at home). When taxes and/or costs apply, the service provider shall inform the client of them and they shall then be invoiced in addition. In the absence of information on taxes and/or costs, the prices indicated are deemed to be inclusive of all taxes and costs.

8- Liability

Special provisions applicable to contracts concluded at a distance: in accordance with the legal provisions in force, the service provider shall be automatically liable to the client for the proper performance of the obligations resulting from the contract concluded at a distance.

Subject to the application of the aforementioned imperative provisions concerning contracts concluded at a distance, the service provider's liability shall only be incurred in the event of a fault proven by the client. The client is solely responsible for the choices he makes and the information he gives to the service provider. Thus, the parties agree that the service provider cannot be held liable for the unsuitability of a service to the needs and information expressed by the client. The Service Provider shall only be liable for the services expressly assigned to it under the present contract. The Service Provider shall not be liable for any damage caused by the communication network or by any failure of the Customer's Internet access. Finally, the Service Provider's liability shall be limited to direct damages attributable to the Service Provider in connection with the performance or non-performance, even partial, of its obligations under the Agreement, indirect damages being excluded.
