For many people considering their first massage, one of the biggest inhibitors can be the fear of feeling exposed and vulnerable. Many people – both men and women – often find that they are more than a little self-conscious about strangers seeing their bodies. And even though there is no real need for you to be completely nude during a massage session, the entire process can seem a little daunting. The fact is, though, that many massage techniques can be performed over the top of clothing, and therapists are typically skilled at working around a client’s inhibitions.
Still, that raises an important question: what should you be wearing to your massage to ensure that the process is as easy for you as possible, while still providing the therapist with enough freedom to ensure that you receive all the benefits you’re seeking? Well, that’s the really great part about all of this; your therapist really doesn’t mind what you wear or don’t wear – as long as you’re able to get the massage you need at the time.
For your own convenience, it is often wise to wear loose-fitting clothing that you can opt to either leave on or off, depending on your mood. Naturally, you should remove your shoes, jewelry, watch, and similar obstructions. But where clothing is concerned, it really is up to you! The fact is that you are going to be draped throughout the session, and the only time an area might be uncovered is when the therapist is working on those particular muscles.
With that noted, there are some common sense decisions that you should probably make. If you want a deep muscle massage, try not to wear sweaters, flannel, or denim that might be difficult to massage through properly. If you want oils used in your massage, you might want to resist the urge to wear that expensive new set of lingerie. You get the point.
Is the Therapist Uncomfortable?
One concern that many clients sometimes express is that they are afraid that their semi-clothed state might make their therapist uncomfortable. Perish the thought! The human body is a beautiful thing, no matter who it belongs to, but you can rest assured that your therapist is used to seeing human skin. More importantly, that therapist will be out of the room while you disrobe and later when you are getting dressed – to preserve and honor your privacy. So, dress as you will and don’t be inhibited by the thought that you might somehow make your therapist ill at ease.
