Massage – Do I wear underwear? Yes or no?

Massage – Do I wear underwear? Yes or no?

You’ve never had a massage before or maybe you’ve had a few or maybe you are seeing a new therapist. After the pre-massage consultation where the therapist has determined your health and relaxation goals for the session, they’ve breezed from the room with the throw-away comment “please get undressed to your comfort level and get under the towel”. You are now faced with the dilemma that can haunt you for the entire time you are on the table for your…

Prone Breast Support Bolstering

Prone Breast Support Bolstering

For many women, lying face down on a massage table can be uncomfortable. In particular, women with larger boobs may struggle to enjoy and benefit from a mobile massage in Sydney. The pressure on their breasts is too much and can be painful. Nursing mothers or women who have had breast augmentation may also have difficulty in lying on a massage table for an extended period of time. For a while now, when it is apparent that women were uncomfortable…

Weird Massages

Weird Massages

When trying to think of a topic to include in my blog, I thought of some of the weird massages I’ve given. There have been times when I’ve finished a massage and wondered “WTF just happened?” Now, to be honest these have been few and far between. Most of the Sydney home massages I’ve provided over the years have gone very smoothly. But occasionally someone has some, what I would consider, unusual ideas about how the massage could proceed. However,…

You know you’re a massage therapist when….

You know you’re a massage therapist when….

A recent Facebook post on a massage therapist group asked the question “You know you’re a massage therapist when…..” Now probably the majority of the answers are in-jokes for massage therapists but still…some of them are quite funny. You know you’re a massage therapist when… You automatically wash your hands up to elbows You come home and shower the people germs off You don’t think that rubbing oil into naked strangers bodies is at all weird You notice complete strangers’…

Plantar Fasciitis and Massage

Plantar Fasciitis and Massage

The information here is my personal interpretation of the comments made on the podcast about plantar fasciitis mainly for my own reference and posted here for general interest. It is not intended to replace or to be a substitute for medical advice by a trained physician and healthcare practitioner. Fasciitis implies inflammation of the fascia but what is more likely to be happening is an -oscis.  Maybe there was an initial injury but there may be maladaptive changes but they…

How Good is Fertility Massage Sydney?

How Good is Fertility Massage Sydney?

Many infertile couples look towards natural health as an aid to facilitate conception.  They try supplements, change life-style and book a fertility massage Sydney in their attempts to fall pregnant. This frequently occurs after IVF type treatments have failed.  Alternatively the couple may not just be comfortable going down the IVF path in the first place. And if you search on Google for fertility massage in your home town or suburb then chances are that you will find a therapist…

Massage Etiquette Australia

A frequent discussion post on massage Facebook groups revolves around what to wear for a massage, draping and whether adjusting underwear is appropriate.

An expression that is commonly used by therapists is that you should “undress…

Why Female Clients Prefer Female on Female Massage Therapy

Why Female Clients Prefer Female on Female Massage Therapy

  Had conversation recently with a client who had recommended me to a colleague. Her colleague though had only ever had massages from females therapists.  She was not prepared to even consider a massage from a male, despite my clients recommendations. She was only prepared to consider female on female massage. My client struggled to understand it and just put it down to the fact that she was concerned about the potential vulnerability being a female in a state of…

Funny Massage Story #3

Funny Massage Story #3

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. Turns out his wife had put the kids to bed early and told him to go…
