Someone asked me a question, and I just wanted to see what other people think. If you put in a "Facial Massage" storefront ( I hate to use the word parlor. It might bring out the wrong meanings.) This is suppose to be a legal usage. The question would be, would it fall under sec. 517 of the NEC. ?

Not any more than a typical barber shop or doctors' exam room.

The guide line I use is does the owner / operator use the word / title Doctor ?
If yes then probaly 517: if not then treat it as a regular commercial use.

Harold:

Massage therapy is usually provided without any 'medical devices' that require electrical power, resulting in any article 300 wiring method, dependent on the structure.

The twp I work in has quite a few (10+), and none are Art 517 required.

WE have a 'multi-use' office complex, the Architect has been specifing "ALL HG WIRE" for any of the suites undergoing renovations, irregardless of the tenant usage. His theory is, maybe a 'doctor' will move in.

Yeah,

This is the way that I looked at this question. No MD and no equipment on "patients" then no 517. I thought that I would just see if others agreed with me. Thanks
