Do you wear a bra in a massage?
You’ll want to strip down to just your undies. Take off your bra—it’ll get in the way of the back massage and who can relax with underwire poking you anyway? Also, if it’s just an upper body massage, you can leave your socks on, otherwise, slip them off so the therapist can work on your soles.
What should I expect from a massage therapist?
Your therapist will use draping to expose the body part they are working at that moment, never exposing breasts, genitals, gluteal cleft, or any body part you specify should remain covered. While checking in, your therapist will invite you to communicate by asking how comfortable the pressure of your massage is.

Does full body massage include private parts?
A full-body massage usually includes your arms, legs, hands and feet, your neck and back, your stomach and buttocks. The area around the breasts is usually massaged but not the breasts themselves. Even with a full-body massage, most of you stays covered most of the time.
Do you wear clothes during a massage?
“Since you’ll be covered in a drape except for whichever body part the massage therapist is working on, underwear is optional,” says Michelle Trigona-Gaine, licensed massage therapist and owner of Bodies in Balance Therapeutic Massage & Wellness in Hopewell Junction, New York.
How much is a good tip for a massage?
What spa staff wants you to do: Masseuses appreciate a 20 percent tip and like it even more if given in cash. That’s because if you tip on your credit card, most spas will pay that tip out with the therapist’s weekly or biweekly paycheck.
How much do you tip for a 60 minute massage?
The standard hospitality rate for massage tipping is 20 percent. For example, if a massage or body treatment costs $100, a 20 percent tip would be $20.
Is it OK to fall asleep during a massage?
As any massage therapist will tell you, it is completely acceptable to fall asleep during a massage session. In fact, it is a very healthy and normal reaction to an extremely relaxing stimulus.
Are happy endings legal?
For the uninitiated, a “happy ending” is exactly what it sounds like: an orgasm for the client, courtesy of the masseuse, at the end of the massage. In the United States, happy ending massages are illegal, but in Australia and many other parts of the world, it’s a perfectly legal service.
Is it OK to sleep during a massage?
A therapist is still able to perform a high quality massage even if their client is asleep. It’s not rude, nor does it insult them in anyway. In fact, sleeping through a massage is a compliment to the therapist. Falling asleep tells them you are relaxed and comfortable and enjoying the time on their table.
What should I wear during a massage?
You can wear what you want Some clients keep underwear on, some wear compression shorts, and everything in between. I give massages to clients who are fully clothed. Whatever you are going to feel comfortable with is the best thing that you can wear (or not wear) to a massage.
