As with any other profession in healthcare, it is important for the Massage Therapist to keep up with hygiene procedures. This includes to operate in a clean and appropriate environment. The hygiene aspect is very important with this form of therapy because body contact can lead to possible contamination if no precautions are being made.
Hygiene and modesty are very important to us and the hygiene aspects and towel techniques we have been taught in class will make sure that you feel comfortable and safe before, during and after the massage.
