Treatments and Therapies
We carefully select our third-party service partners; however, our service partners are independently operated and not employees of Platinum Healing. Therefore, Platinum Healing is not responsible or liable for actions taken by these service partners or any injury that may result from the provision of these services.
Treatment and Therapy Descriptions
Therapy descriptions on our website and treatment menu are subject to change at any time without notice. Therapies will also vary dependant on the therapist’s style of working and school of training. Your therapist may also suggest an alternative tool or therapy more appropriate for you at any time during your session or retreat. We cannot guarantee that a therapy will be identical or even similar to that which you have experienced with other therapist on the retreat, or even outside of the retreat. This is particularly important if you yourself are a trained therapist. Please go into your session with an open mind without expectation to really gain full benefits.
Treatment Inclusions on Retreat Packages
If for any reason we are unable to offer you treatments that are advertised and included in certain packages, we will offer you either an alternative OR a full refund for the cost of the treatment. In many packages you have a choice of either Reflexology OR Acupuncture. If you do not inform us prior to the retreat which option you prefer, we will automatically book you for a Reflexology treatment. Once booked this cannot be changed.
Treatment Booking Locations, Dates and Times
Please inform us within 30 days of retreat start if you have a preference on days your treatments will take place during the retreat. Where possible we will aim to honour such request (subject to availability of therapists). If you do not request certain days within 30 days of retreat start then your treatments will be scheduled for you. We cannot accept any requests within 30 days prior to retreat start, as we schedule all therapists in advance who block out their diary for your treatments. Treatments may also be conducted in guest bedrooms, treatment rooms, yoga studio or other spaces depending on availability. No changes to treatments whatsoever can be made within 30 days of retreat start.
Consuming Anything Outside of Our Program
The less your body has to process during a detox the better. Eating and consuming anything outside of our program such as protein shakes will slow the detox process down. It is strictly prohibited to consume anything outside of our program in front of other retreat guests in any public areas. We also request that you refrain from mentioning that you are using anything outside of the program or discussing this in front of the group or with anyone individually. This can be extremely disruptive to the rest of the group and the group leaders. The program is tried tested and it really works. We recommend really sticking to the program we offer and please kindly respect the other guests as they are coming to us to fully dive into a complete fasting program.
Pre-Existing Medical Conditions
You must make Platinum Healing Ltd aware at the time of booking of any pre-existing medical conditions, as it may not be possible for you to undertake all of the treatments included in your chosen package due to contra-indications.
If you do have pre-existing medical conditions, once Platinum Healing Ltd has received your booking form and if the various therapists feel it necessary we will then discuss with you an alternative option.
Failure to notify Platinum Healing Ltd in advance i.e. on your Booking Form, may result in you not being able to attend or continue with the retreat or undertake any treatments that may have possible contra-indications.

Activities and Entertainment
If you are someone that requires constant activities or distractions this is a perfect time for you to slow down and break out of this habit. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide constant entertainment and activities during the retreat. To do this would also go against what we are trying to promote. Being present and in the moment, giving space to allow emotions to surface, to look within and to slow down. Please respect and understand that this is a healing retreat and is NOT a boot camp, spa or a hotel.
All animals including cats and dogs are prohibited on a Platinum Healing Retreat. Anyone found with an animal on site at the retreat will be asked to leave the premises immediately and no refund or alternative date will be given.

Changes to Terms
Terms and conditions may be changed by Platinum Healing Limited at any time.
Changes to Retreat or Treatments
All information on our website and any written or verbal form of correspondence is correct at the time of publication.
Platinum Healing Ltd reserves the right to change the retreat schedule and any of the inclusive components of any retreat package at any given time without prior notice.
Should it be necessary to make any changes to your package before or during your retreat stay owing to staff illness, absence, mechanical faults, weather conditions, what insurance companies call ‘acts of god’ or any other unforeseen circumstances we reserve the right to do so and will always endeavour to provide an equivalent alternative. This includes any treatments and therapies, sessions, consultations, fitness or yoga sessions.
If we are unable to provide an alternative class or session that was included in the standard package for any reason, you may be offered a complimentary treatment or a small discount off your final invoice total at the discretion of the Manager. For workshops and treatments that are NOT part of the standard retreat package and have been part of a special offer or as part of a promotion, we will NOT be able to offer any refund to the value of such inclusion but will endeavour to provide an alternative.
Changes to Prices
Retreat prices advertised on our website may change at any time at our discretion. We may also reduce prices to fill last minute places. The price is as advertised at the time of booking and some people may pay less for last minute places. No refunds are given for any difference in price to other guests who booked a retreat at the full price. We aim to fill all retreats to avoid us having to cancel them due to not reaching capacity.
In the very unlikely event of our booking team double booking your space on a retreat date, Platinum Healing cannot offer you alternative accommodation offsite. A full refund or date change will be offered to you. Platinum Healing will only be responsible for the full retreat price paid and any pre booked treatments.
Withdrawal of Facilities or Services
Facilities and accommodations may be altered or services withdrawn for reasons outside of Platinum Healing’s Control.

Rates, accommodations, property descriptions, amenities, and rental conditions are subject to change without notice and are at the sole and absolute discretion of Platinum Healing.

CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
We highly recommend travel insurance for all retreat guests. This should be purchased independently as it is not included in the retreat program cost.
If for whatever reason you need to cancel the retreat after you have booked, the following refund policy will apply:
Our retreats are extremely exclusive with limited capacity. Once you book onto the retreat, we guarantee your place and may have to turn other people away. Therefore, all retreat bookings made within 3 months of the retreat start date are final and there will be no refunds given for any cancellation. Cancellations are NOT accepted within 90 days of retreat start.
A full refund of the monies paid minus a £200 administration charge will be given for all cancellations up to 90 days prior to the start date of the booked retreat, ONLY if we are able to fill your original space.
If any refund is given all bank changes incurred will be covered by the client/guest. For international bank transfer refunds there is also an additional administration fee of £25.
No refund will be provided on retreat package or treatments pre booked if you choose to leave the retreat early or for failure to arrive at the retreat for any reason.
If paying via instalments, the above will apply based on the total retreat price not just on any instalments paid.
If for whatever reason you need to change the date of your retreat after you have booked, the following policy will apply:
You are welcome to change your retreat date ONLY if we can fill your original space. An administration fee will apply on each date change per booking of £200 but we must be given at least one months’ notice to do this.
PLEASE NOTE: Date changes are not accepted within one month of retreat start date.
There are no limits to the number of date changes, but the administration fee of £200 will apply to each date change. In the unlikely event that we are unable to re fill your place we regret that we will not be able to offer you a date change or any refunds.
Please note that we are not liable for any accident or injury occurred during the duration of your stay, and in booking with us you are acknowledging this fact. It is essential that you take out travel insurance as soon as you book your retreat, which will cover you for any emergencies, delays and cancellations to your booking.
If you are asked to leave the retreat for breaching any of our Terms & Conditions, or if you are in breach of our retreat Ground Rules, no part of the retreat fee or for treatments booked will be refunded.
We cannot refund in the event of a natural disaster, adverse weather conditions or any other situation out of our control for you not being able to participate in the retreat.
We will make every effort to provide the retreat agreed. However, we reserve the right to alter or cancel the venue or date of a retreat, for any cause beyond our reasonable control. In the very unlikely event that we should need to cancel or change a retreat for unforeseen circumstances, or if minimum numbers have not been reached, you may either transfer your booking to the next available date, or we will reimburse all money received from you. Once this is booked, the normal terms and conditions will apply. This does NOT include refunds on flights, insurance, transfers or any other related costs incurred. Our liability will be limited to the refund of your retreat deposit only and we will not be liable for any other direct or indirect loss, cost or expense, of any nature, however caused.
Platinum Healing shall not be liable for damages for any closure hereunder if such delay or default is caused by conditions beyond its control or the control of any retreat management company, but not limited to, weather conditions, acts of God, force majeure, strikes, civil commotions, embargoes, and wars or other hostilities, whether actual, threatened or reported, and/or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of Platinum Healing or any of the Retreat Management Companies
Cancelling or Changing Treatments
Once treatments have been pre booked and confirmed they can be changed or cancelled where possible but only by giving us at least 30 days notice prior to retreat start. Additional treatments can be booked during a retreat subject to availability. Additional treatments once booked during a retreat cannot be changed or cancelled.
No shows will be charged the full treatment price. Late arrivals to treatment will also forfeit the time lost. No extra time will be added to accommodate late arrival.
Cancellations by Platinum Healing
Should a circumstance arise and Platinum Healing has to cancel your retreat for any reason, you will be informed as soon as is reasonably possible. In these circumstances, Platinum Healing will, if we are able to do so, offer you an alternative retreat of equivalent or similar standard and price at no extra cost or a less expensive retreat. In which case, Platinum Healing will refund the difference in price.
If you do not wish to take the alternative we offer you, you can choose another retreat package of higher value and pay the difference. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can receive a full refund of any money you have paid to Platinum Healing.

If additional information is required by the guest relating to the complaint, they are to provide this to Platinum Healing for further analysis.
