Massage Etiquette Around The World

Massage Etiquette Around The World

A frequent discussion post on massage Facebook groups revolves around what to wear for a massage, draping and whether adjusting underwear is appropriate. And there is a large cultural difference which could lead to massage recipients feeling uncomfortable if trying a massage in a different country or a different modality in their own country.

Just a short story this time. Received booking from a wife as a surprise for her husband as he had been working hard and was generally fairly stressed. The appointment was scheduled for 8pm on a Sunday night. I arrive and knock at the designated time and hubbie answers the door in a dressing gown. And a very crest fallen look on his face.

Mobile Massage Records

Mobile Massage Records

I’m sure most massage therapists would have “claims to fame” at one stage or another during their massage careers. The following is a list of my mobile massage “records”and “claims to fame” although I suspect some of them would have been bettered by other therapists.

Fortunately these times are the exception and not the rule. This article lists a few of the things that we don’t particularly enjoy when receiving a massage. 1. When an hour is…

Frequently asked questions mobile massage therapists get asked

Frequently asked questions mobile massage therapists get asked

As a mobile massage therapist in Sydney there are a few “standard” or questions that I am frequently asked by clients. Some of these are relevant for clinic based therapists whereas as some are mobile therapist specific. Don’t your hands hurt? No generally not, for a couple of reasons.
