A sheet will be provided to you to drape yourself with as you walk from the dressing screen to your table. Your modesty will be respected at all times with secure draping.
- There is no nudity allowed. Please wear a bathing suit or underwear while on the table. Sports bras are not recommended, as therapists need to gain access to the entire back.
- If you tend to get cold, bring a blanket or towel for additional warmth while you are on the table.
