Disease Awarness and Infection Control


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

Disease Awareness and infection control is a very important topic that massage therapists should be aware of so they do not spread disease and infection to their clients. Also they want to be educated in this area so they themselves do not get disease or infections. It is so important to sanitize and make sure you really wash your hands well and use new sheets for each client. You also need to be aware that your oils and creams do not cross contaminate. Meaning you do not double dip into your cream. You need to have an extra dish to take out the amount of cream you need for each client and when finished throw out the rest, do not put back into your main cream container. Best to have a pump container.
