I take it for granted that everyone has had a massage or has experience with someone who has had one. I guess it’s the best kept secret that people don’t talk about with one another.
All registered massage therapists must tell you about their plan for your massage. They need to ask you if you are ok with that plan and if you have any questions. They must ask you if there is somewhere you don’t want massaged too.
All massage therapists must inform you about your rights when getting a massage.
It’s YOUR MASSAGE, and you decide how much or how little you want to wear during the massage. The more access to tissue I have, the better job I can do, BUT, I’m aware that YOUR comfort comes first.
Want to wear your shirt and shorts- OK!
Want to keep your bra on-OK!
Want to take it all off-OK!

When you turn on the table there are three steps
This method keeps you secure and safe when turning.
