Scheduling as a Guest, Therapeutic Massage services are intended for in-office sessions, providing therapeutic care.

Visit www.empyrealbackbar.com for more details.
Requestors must be at least 18 years old to schedule and book a massage session. If it is determined and confirmed, after scheduling and payment has been remitted to EBB, that a Service appointment has been made by a Requestor under the age of 18, Empyreal Back Bar reserves the right to cancel the appointment.
Individuals under the age of 18 years old receiving treatment must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (please note that the Service is not for persons under the age of 13 years old). The parent or guardian must give permission for the agreed session to be performed. The parent or guardian is expected to remain present throughout the treatment. The Requestor who has booked the session must articulate this notice to participants prior to the session.
