Massage Monday : what to (not) wear

Happy monday!  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Todays Massage Monday is all about clothes. 

Every so often at the spa, we'll have a client call and ask what they should wear for their massage.  To some, this may be a no-brainer, but, for someone, who had never had a professional massage before, this is a legitimate concern.
What you wear is completely up to you.  This is your massage and we want you to feel as comfortable as possible.

Most spas do not have a dress code.  Obviously, a 'no shirt, no shoes, no service' mentality would apply, but as far as what you wear - that's completely up to you.

If you're doing an island or beach massage, it's preferable that you wear a swimsuit.  There's often not a discreet place to change with those.  Preferably a 2-piece for women...makes it easier to work around for the therapist!

Some specialty massages, such as Thai Massage, do have a dress code.  You should be told about this at the time you make the appointment.

What about during the massage?

Again, this is completely up to you.  It's your massage.

At the end of my consult, I let my clients know that after I step out of the room, they are to undress to the comfort level.  Most people go down to their underwear or full nude.  In any professional massage, you will be properly draped (covered by a sheet) at all times, so you should never feel exposed.  I consider myself to be a fairly modest draper, I only have whatever I am working on exposed at any given time - ie; a leg, an arm, the back, etc.

So there you have it!  What to (not) wear in a massage.  You can check out last weeks Massage Monday to find out jewelrys place.
