Here’s the digs on what you need to know about being a part of the Manuka Movement!


What are your hours of operation?

Monday: CLOSED
Tuesday: 3–8pm
Wednesday: CLOSED
Thursday: 11am–1pm & 4–8pm
Friday: 12–5pm
Saturday/Sunday: By special request AM ONLY


What time do I arrive at my appointment?

Because I work from a studio in my home, I book enough time for my clients to arrive, have their service and book their next one before the next client arrives. Most of the time I am booked back to back so I ask that you arrive AT your appointment time. If you arrive early, please be patient and I will be with you shortly. If you are running late, please call me at 613.355.9372.
** If you arrive late I will customize your service to suit the time remaining.


What if I need to change or cancel my appointment?

I am happy to find a new appointment time for you if the one we have scheduled no longer suits you.  I ask for 24 hours cancellation notice at minimum.  If by chance you miss your appointment or cancel within less than 24 hours, a cancellation fee of 50% of your service will be applied to your next appointment.


How can i pay for my services?

I accept CASH, DEBIT (please read below for details on using debit), VISA & M/C.

I use the SQUARE payment system by Apple. I do accept DEBIT, BUT you do require TAP on your card to use this feature. If you do not have TAP, please plan to use another form of payment.


Can I bring my child?

YES!  Manuka Studio is a child friendly studio and I would love to meet your children 🙂 Please let me know if you will be bringing your children so I can add a little bit of extra time to your service…children are unpredictable…and I love baby cuddles!


What do I need to bring to my appointment?

JUST YOU! Can’t wait to see you 🙂


Where are you located?

I’m located in the west end of Ottawa. I’m close to the Queensway and super easy to find. Once you have your appointment scheduled I will share my exact location!
