What are the risks of an Esthetician who wears hearing devices during electrotherapy?

I am a student studying to be an Esthetician. I wear Phonak’s titanium hearing aid devices that are battery operated. Im wondering what long-term/short-term effects that would have on my health if I decided to keep them in while Im preforming a service . I need to be able to hear my client.

Dear Marisa The only modalities that I can think of that may have an adverse effect on your hearing aids ( but I cannot be sure) are PEME and SWD, although there are better qualified people in the panel who will hopefully clarify this for you Cliff
