"I use hand sanitizer after I work the feet. If I feel uncomfortable working on their feet due to fungus or smell, then I work through the sheet and give more of a shiatsu/acupressure  type of foot massage. "

Stacey Freitag replied to Qiana Thompson's discussion Should I pay chiropractor a cut from my mobile business?

Should I pay chiropractor a cut from my mobile business?
