Infection Control


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

While reading Chapter 1 in the text book, I learned about Disease awareness, and infection control. The way to be aware of disease is to simply ask the client during their intake form questions, and then to keep updated on each client. Another way is to keep a good eye out for sign, and symptoms. Keeping yourself healthy as the therapist is most important, if the therapist is sick, they cant help their clients. Avoiding infection is very important, keeping away from contagious skins disease is a common worry, as well as open sores where infection can be passed through bodily fluids. Gloves are a easy and safe way to keep your self healthy when you massage a client with a disease or infection.
