Patient Consent Form and Appointment Policy

While Therapeutic Herbs, Cupping, Massage Therapy, and other treatments provided by this clinic have proven to be highly effective in correcting conditions and maintaining overall well-being, practitioners are required to advise patients that there may be some risks. Although practitioners cannot anticipate all the possible risks and complications that may arise with each individual case, you should be aware that the following side effects can occur. If there are any particular risks that apply in your case, your practitioner will discuss these with you.

What are the possible side effects of Therapeutic Herbs or Massage Therapy?

 Drowsiness can occur in a small number of patients.

 Minor bruising can occur from cuppling treatments.

 In less than 3% of patients, symptoms may become worse before they improve for 1-2 days following treatment.

This is usually a good sign. Please advise your therapist if worsening of symptoms continues for more than 2


 Fainting can occur in certain patients, but this is very rare.


Statement of Consent

I confirm that I have read and understood the above information, and I consent to having treatments and procedures from this clinic. I have read the possible risks of treatment outlined above, but do not expect the practitioner to be able to anticipate and explain all possible risks and complications of treatment. I also understand that I can refuse treatment at any time. I wish to rely on my practitioner to exercise judgment during the course of treatment which, based upon the facts then known, is in my best interests. I understand the practitioner may review my medical records and lab reports, but all my records will be kept confidential and will not be released without my written consent.

Privacy Policy

The information received and collected about our clients/patients from their visit to Joette's Herbal Apothecary & Spa of Baltimore is strictly private and confidential. It is used and viewed only by the healthcare professionals and staff employed by Joette's Herbal Apothecary & Spa of Baltimore, unless, in the best interest of the client/patient, a practitioner determines that there is a need to communicate with another person or healthcare professional outside Joette's Herbal Apothecary & Spa of Baltimore (also, Joette's Herbal Apothecary & Spa of Baltimore will not give, share, sell or transfer any personal information to a third party unless required by law). Under absolutely no circumstances would this communication happen without the signed consent of the client/patient.

Appointment Policy

Many of our clients are pleased to find out that we are usually on time. This is because your treatment has been reserved for you, whereas most medical offices overbook by appointing several patients at the same time. That kind of scheduling provides the practitioner with a steady flow of patients but does not respect the patient’s time.

Occasionally, there is a problem with patients who are not used to staying on schedule themselves. With that in mind, if you are going to be more than 15 minutes late, please call to confirm availability. A 24-hour notice for cancelled or rescheduled appointments is necessary in order to avoid a cancellation fee of $30-$60. This allows us time to schedule another patient that would also benefit from treatment. This appointment policy allows us to develop a mutual consideration and respect for our time and yours. By voluntarily signing below, I show that I have read this consent to treatment, and have been told about the risks and benefits of treatments provided by this clinic. I intend this consent form to cover the entire course of treatment for my present condition and further conditions for which I seek treatment. I have read this statement and fully understand it.
