You may be barefoot during a massage, but shoes are required outside of the massage room. Nails must be short and clean. Hair must be off the face and shoulders. Makeup if worn should be neutral. Breathe and body oder should not be noticeable. Personal hygiene is of great importance in massage so you may be asked to tidy-up before being allowed to work. See handbook section 4.4 for rules.
