Our Policies, Guarantees and Our Commitment to you!

Cancellation policy

We understand that sometimes life gets in the way and amendments, or cancellations are necessary, but we kindly ask that you appreciate that when you cancel or reschedule an appointment without sufficient notice, valuable clinic time is lost and clients on our waiting list miss the opportunity to receive our services.

1. If you need to cancel your appointment or make amendments, please provide at least 48 hours notice prior to the appointment start time. Less than 24 hours notice will result in a charge equal to 50% of the scheduled appointments. Clients must notify the clinic of the intention to cancel or amend a booking by email or phone.

2. If you are a no-show, where you do not show up for your appointment with no notification, you will be required to pay 100% of the scheduled appointments you were booked for.

3. First appointments for new clients will require a credit card to secure the booking.

Our Time Guarantee:

To allow un-pressured, quality time for your appointment, and to ensure we are consistently on time, our policy is that we may need to reschedule clients who are more than 15 minutes late.

In return, we take responsibility for any staff member who is more than 15 minutes late and offer a complimentary detox voucher for use on your next visit.

We recommend that you arrive at least 10- 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.

Customs & Duties

For any orders shipped outside of New Zealand or Australia the customer is the importer of the product and will be responsible for all customs import duties and any associated taxes.

  1. Availability on the Online Store: If a supplement is displayed on your online store, it indicates that you have it in stock and will ship it within 48 hours.
  2. Back Orders: If a supplement is not listed on the online store, it means it is currently on back order. In this case, customers cannot purchase it until it becomes available again.
  3. Order Confirmation and Tracking: After making a purchase, a staff member will prepare your order for courier collection. They will then enter your tracking number into Mindbody, which is the system used for tracking orders.
  4. Tracking Activation: Initially, your tracking number won’t be registered with New Zealand Post until they scan it in with their driver. This process may take some time, ranging from hours to days.
  5. Delivery Date: Once New Zealand Post confirms the tracking number with their driver, they will provide you with a delivery date for your package.

It’s important to note that the exact timing may vary depending on the specific circumstances and the efficiency of the postal service.

If your order has not arrived within 5 days please contact New Zealand Post. We use New Zealand post courier system, you will always be given a tracking number with every purchase. We send the tracking number confirmation in your auto email once you have purchased your supplements from the shop.

To track your item please use this link https://www.nzpost.co.nz/tools/tracking. The tracking number will always look like this LVXXX XXX XXXNZ. If it hasn’t arrived please contact New Zealand Post on 0800 501 501 to check on your missing parcel. If New Zealand post confirms they have delivered your parcel, they take photos of all their deliveries, please contact the office, office@shelleygawith.com and we can refund your order and claim insurance from New Zealand Post. If New Zealand post confirms they delivered your item (via photos) and it was stolen from your letterbox, you will have to make a personal insurance claim as this was stolen from your address and SGFN can not claim insurance for this.

Please note, any missing order requests must be advised within 30 days from date of purchase, no further action can be made on your behalf if we are contacted after this time.

Please keep a copy of your receipt as proof of purchase. Please ensure your shipping address is correct, as we’re unable to redirect orders. Orders will be processed within 48 hours of receiving them, unless otherwise specified at time of purchase.
