Toenaill fungus

Is toenail fungus contagious or not? I am getting a lot of conflicting information online.

FYI: I am a massage therapy student and I work with people's feet. Lastnight I did a reflexology massage on someone with obvious toenail fungus on one foot. I avoided touching the nail and throughly washed my hands after the session but I am still concerned about exposing myself and then of course exposing other clients. What can I do in the future? Should I even touch the feet of someone who has fungus? I was told I can spray their feet down with tea tree oil solution before the session but is this 100% effective?
