If no one is scheduled after you, such as at the end of the day or on weekends, you may continue until you reach your goal or wish to stop. We do our best to be flexible. Often another session is scheduled immediately following yours, in most cases, we allow at least 1/2 hour leeway between sessions. If you should require a little more time, we will try to continue and ask the next scheduled appointment if they can wait. However, if this is not acceptable to them, we ask that you be considerate and stop your project and schedule another session. It is always a good idea to estimate the amount of time you will need and schedule accordingly.
