Common Questions to Ask Before Your Massage Session
You are not the only one who gets nervous before starting your massage session. You are not the only one to have a lot of questions but at the same time have a huge doubt to ask. We are all had been in the same situation as you. We have questions. We are wondering about the massage protocol. In the end, we are all here with one purpose, to have a wonderful massage experience.
The massage session should be the relaxing massage session for everyone, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask your therapists or our receptionist. There is no silly question. A good therapist will understand your doubts and clarify anything in a good explanation.
We understand, asking embarrassing questions to a stranger might feel uncomfortable for some people. Your comfort is actually the main priority during the massage session. Instead of staying confused and lost, here we are, giving you all the answers to the questions you are too embarrassed to ask your massage therapist.
- Can I sleep during the session?
Is it common to fall asleep? Well, pretty sure most of the readers had been sleeping during the massage session, at least once. (It should be more than once, I bet). Falling asleep during the massage is actually more common than you think. In fact, you should be grateful if you can fall asleep during your massage. That means you are completely relaxed and you don’t have anything in your mind to bother you. Sleeping is a natural body response to feeling comfortable and relaxed. As a massage therapist, yes, they would notice if you are falling asleep. Sometimes, the therapists ask their customers in the middle of the session but have no answer because they are in a deep sleep. The therapists would feel happy of themselves if their customers fell asleep during the session. That means they are successfully doing their job to make you relax.What happens if you fall asleep? The answer is, nothing happened. The session continues as usual, and the therapists will gently wake you up if the session is over or if they want you to change your position. So, in your next massage appointment, do not force yourself to be awake. If you start to feel sleepy, just follow your body and relax. You are not the first one to fall asleep or snoring during the massage session, yet you are not going to be the last one.
- Are they expecting the tip?
There are a lot of consideration to answer this question. It depends on your location, the culture, and the business model.
But if you feel that you are super satisfied with your therapist and want to give a little appreciation, go ahead for a good of tipping (or maybe more). There is no pressure, and you can tip as much as you feel happy.
- Should I remove my clothes? How far?
We recommend you to remove all your cloths. You are not the one who try to fit in, to make the therapist feel comfortable while massaging. But we, the therapists, are the ones who should be fit in your comfort level. We are hoping ,you are free to feel comfortable while getting a massage by naked. However, the less clothes you have on your body, the easier for massage therapist to get done their job. For the best massaging result, skin exposure is essential. The rubbing and oil application to your skin give the heat to warm your body. However, every massage therapist already has the different technique.
- What happens if I need to gas passing?
Let’s talk about science. Massage activity stimulates and activates your gut. It’s a part of the process, and it’s a natural response from your body. So the answer is it is entirely normal to pass some gasses during the session. Nope, your massage therapist would not feel offended at all, and they would totally understand the effect of massaging on our bodies. So, you don’t need to feel embarrassed. Even we prefer the customer release the gas rather than squeezing the glutes that would make the massage session become harder.
- Is it okay if I talk?
Do what you feel like to do. It’s totally up to you. You don’t need to change your personality when you get a massage. If you have been a talkative person and feel comfortable to talk with the therapist, that’s fine. If you are an introvert who needs to focus on yourself and enjoy the massage moment without talking, that’s also fine. Our therapist wouldn’t bother in any option that you choose whether you will talk or not. Their only vision is to give the best experience for the customer.We recommend you to have a good communication with your therapist. This means that you will communicate if you feel uncomfortable or if you feel something that doesn’t right. Tell the therapist your condition, about the tension, tell them about your desire , and others. This will help your therapist and give them some guidance to make the session right and easy. Having a good communication is not only helping their job, but also helping yourself to have a great massage experience.
- Should I wax or shave before?
Massaging is all about muscle healing. We are focused on taking care of your body and muscle. So, hairy skin is not really a problem. Let’s have a look at the male massage. Pretty sure that men have more hair than women, but we have never heard any single complain or doubt if they need to be hairless for the massage session. So please just come to the massage appointment confidently with the goal to be relaxed and healed.
- Can I get an erection in the middle of the session?
Yes, there is a possibility but hey, getting an erection is not something you should be worried about. It’s your body’s natural response, and there is nothing to be embarrassed about by getting an erection. The only thing that you should be embarrassed about is inappropriate action that might can’t express yourself. And Let’s enjoy the journey!
- How to start the massage experience?
Start from your closest comfort place, home. Having an outcall massage is a whole new experience to try whether you have tried massage for many time or you have never done before. This is the time when you get relaxed and healed without going anywhere. Save more time and energy. Sensual massage should be fun and unforgettable experience for anyone.
