Decide during the consultation whether the face and head are to be included in the massage. Check for contra-indications in these areas. Female clients may not want their make-up and hair disturbed: make sure that you explain what is involved. If the face is included, cleanse it during client preparation. After the client has showered, position her/him on the bed, wash your hands and cleanse the face with a suitable cleanser followed by a toner. Clean the feet with surgical spirit; wash your hands again before starting the massage.
