Do you sterilise your instruments?

YES! ALL instruments used are cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner and then placed in an autoclave to be to 134 degrees in accordance with current regulations. They are then used for one individual only before being cleaned and sterilised once more. In addition, fresh disposable gloves/aprons and bed roll are used for each client.
