What to wear (or not) during your massage

The most Frequently Asked Question in massage: Do I need to get naked?

Short answer
No. Absolutely not.

Long answer
If you've visited our clinic, I'm sure you've often heard us say, “Undress to your level of comfort.” To some that may seem way too vague. And people new to massage have no idea what that means. Heck, sometimes I’m not even sure I know what that means.

Here’s what you need to know about clothing during a session:

First, no matter what, you’ll always be covered (draped) with a sheet and a blanket. Hopefully you’ll never be left feeling exposed. When we work on an arm, we fold the sheet back and tuck it under your arm so it’s secure.  We follow the same protocol for the leg.

When we work on the full back, we fold the drape down at the hips. If you’re wearing underwear we’ll gently tuck the sheet around the waistband, to protect your clothes from massage oil. If you’re wearing a bra, we’ll work around it. If you’re wearing a tank top or shorts, we’ll work through it. We know plenty of very effective massage techniques that can be administered over clothing. If we feel we can’t effectively treat your issue through the clothing you’ve chosen to wear, we’ll tell you, and we’ll figure out another approach.

Please know that we don’t care, and we're not judging you. This massage is about you and it’s important you feel comfortable. For some people that means leaving some clothing on. For others, it means taking it all off. There is no right or wrong, this is your massage.

Enjoy your next massage!
