Disclaimer, Waiver, and Informed Consent

Disclaimer

I, Karine Tolerton, am not a medical doctor and do not practice medicine. I do not diagnose, cure, treat disease, or otherwise prescribe medication. I assist people in correcting energetic imbalances which helps the body activate its innate healing ability. When the energy of the body is balanced and moves correctly, the body naturally heals itself. My work is a complement to regular allopathic medicine. I recommend that clients continue to see their regular medical doctors and follow their advice.  My energy work is not a substitute for conventional medical diagnosis or treatment for any medical or psychological condition. For such issues, you should seek a licensed physician or healthcare professional.

Terms & Conditions – Waiver and Informed Consent

KALI, Reiki, Energy Work, Sound Healing, Akashic Soul Readings

When attending a session, workshop, or event with Karine Tolerton you must acknowledge and accept the following terms:

I hereby willingly, knowingly, and voluntarily acknowledge and understand that:

1. Kundalini Activation Light Integration (KALI), Reiki, energy work and sound healing is alternative/complementary and does not take the place of medical care and therefore will not be used in lieu of medical treatment.

2. I am not using KALI, Reiki, energy work and sound healing in lieu of medical treatment and am encouraged to consult a licensed medical practitioner for any physical or mental ailments I may have.

3. I understand that Karine Tolerton will neither diagnose any medical condition, nor prescribe for any condition that I might have, nor does she make any specific claims regarding results from the sessions that I receive. I understand that I am encouraged to consult a licensed medical practitioner for any physical or mental complaints I may have. KALI or Energy Therapy or Reiki are not substitutes for medical or psychological attention, examination, diagnosis, or treatment.


4. Reiki and energy work are gentle, hands-on, or hands-off energy techniques that are used for stress reduction and relaxation. I also understand that the body has the ability to heal itself and to do so, complete relaxation is often beneficial. I acknowledge that long-term imbalances in the body sometimes require multiple sessions in order to facilitate the level of relaxation needed by the body to heal itself

Kundalini Energy Flow – Please note the following terms for Kundalini Activation Sessions:

5. Kundalini Activation is an energy modality that activates a person’s kundalini awakening. A session may include light physical touch, and I hereby consent to such unless expressly stated otherwise. I understand that during a session I may make physical movements and may have emotional releases. I am aware that this healing modality is a powerful transmission, and I will give myself ample space and time afterward to help support my integration.

6. I agree that I don’t have any symptoms or am not diagnosed with delusion, psychosis, seizures, epilepsy, schizophrenia, or bipolar disorder. I further agree that if I am pregnant or suffer from any mental or physical medical condition not described above, or have concerns about how energy work may impact my health, I have either consulted with a licensed medical professional prior to participating in a session.

7. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, discontinue the activity, and ask for support from the facilitator. I assume full responsibility for any and all damages, which may incur through participation.

8. No one under the age of 18 will be allowed to attend Kundalini sessions or events without an attending parent or guardian. For Reiki and sound therapy sessions, events, and workshops, parents or guardians are not required to attend but must provide consent for the child to participate.

9. I will make the instructor aware of any medical conditions or physical limitations before a class or session. If I am pregnant, become pregnant, or am post-natal or post-surgical, my acceptance of these terms verifies that I have my physician’s approval to participate.

10. As these policies are publicly visible and available, it is understood that anyone attending Karine Tolerton’s classes, sessions and events does so with the acknowledgment that she/he has read the above waiver, understands its meaning and legal implications, and agrees fully to the terms and conditions stipulations herein.

Cancellation terms

12. There are no refunds for attendance at Kundalini Activation in-person group sessions or events. As such, please review ALL of these terms and conditions prior to registering and paying. Requests to reschedule and be placed in a different group session must be requested at least 24 hours in advance of the session.

13. Only individual, one on one sessions, are refundable. For these, there is a 48-hour cancelation policy. I understand that if I need to cancel my appointment, I must do so within 48 hours otherwise I will be charged a cancelation fee of $60. If I cancel within 2 hours prior to my appointment, fail to show up to my appointment without notice, or arrive more than 10 minutes late, then I will be charged the full fee for the session. If I arrive within the 10-minute grace period, I understand the session will not be extended, and that the 10 minutes will be deducted from the scheduled time slot allotted for the session. i.e. if it is a 1-hour session and I am 10 minutes late, then I will only receive 50 minutes of the session; the session will not be extended because I am late.

Akashic Readings – Please note the following terms for Akashic Soul Readings:

14. All sessions are conducted via phone call. I will send you a link with dial-in details after you book the session. Payment is required before your scheduled session. I am unable to provide refunds for missed appointments as I can start the Akashic record research at any time. I will provide you with a written report following your session.

Refund Policy – Stripe fee: The payment processing service I use (Stripe) charges a 2.9% fee on all transactions, which is non-refundable under all circumstances. So, if you request a refund for a reading, and it is deemed necessary, you will be refunded — minus the Stripe fee on your original transaction.

15. I agree to these terms and conditions prior to participating but as described below, I further release Karine Tolerton from House Libre and the studio, office, or location where the class, session, event, or workshop is being held.

16. I now hereby release Karine Tolerton and House Libre from any and all liability that may result from myself, my children, or any member of my family participating in any private session or workshop, retreat, or any function held or sponsored by Karine Tolerton and House Libre.

Our participation is completely voluntary, and we hereby assume any and all risks in order to participate in these activities.

Furthermore, I agree to obey the class and facility rules and take full responsibility for my behaviour in addition to any damage I may cause to the building, office, and/or facility.
