Conditions

1 Validity of the GTC 

The Business Owner, Andreas Maurer, hereinafter referred to as the Business Owner, provides his services exclusively on the basis of these GTC. These apply to all business activities between the Business Owner and the contractual partners, hereinafter referred to as the Client.

 

The GTC are deemed to be accepted with any appointment booking, whether by telephone, email, online or other channels such as WhatsApp/SMS. 

 

The Business Owner is entitled to amend or supplement these GTC at any time.

 

2 Appointments 

Agreed appointments (verbally, by telephone or online and by email, or other channels such as WhatsApp/SMS) between the business owner and the client are binding. 

 

The costs for agreed but unattended appointments will be charged unless they are canceled in person or by telephone at least 24 hours in advance. Cancellations via electronic media are only considered accepted once they have been confirmed by the business owner. 

 

The treatment time includes the dressing and undressing of the client, the treatment and a short medical history interview. For the first treatment, the anamnesis interview takes a longer period of time. If the client is late, the treatment will be shortened by the corresponding amount of time. The therapy must be paid for in full. There is no entitlement to compensation. 

 

3. terms of payment 

The prices in CHF on the website apply. Prices are subject to change at any time. 

 

The bank transfer is made within 30 days of receipt of the invoice.

 

Vouchers will be sent by post or handed out directly after payment has been made. The shipping costs shall be borne by the customer.

 

4. entitlement to health insurance benefits 

The client is responsible for clarifying their entitlement to benefits with their health insurance company. Whether there is an entitlement via supplementary insurance can be determined by stating the ZSR number. 

 

As a rule, no referral from a doctor is necessary. 

 

The consultations cannot be billed via the basic insurance (KVG) but only via the supplementary insurance.

 

When purchasing vouchers and for redeemed vouchers, no reimbursement vouchers are issued for the health insurance company.

5. treatments & liability/limitations of liability 

An anamnesis (health questions) is taken during the initial treatment. The client is obliged to answer the questions truthfully. 

 

The client shall provide information about any changes in health at each subsequent treatment without being asked to do so. 

 

Treatments are carried out according to current and up-to-date knowledge, experience, methods and techniques. 

 

Treatments are carried out at the client's own risk. If, despite professional application, consequential damage occurs which is due to the fact that a client has concealed contraindications, the business owner is exempt from any liability. The same applies to damage caused by the fact that a contraindication was not known to the client and was not recognizable to the business owner. 

 

The treatments do not contain any promises of healing and are in no way a substitute for visits to the doctor. 

 

6. data protection regarding practice management & confidentiality
