Absolutely not! The massage therapist walks you to the treatment room to discuss your goals and desires for your session. After that, they leave the room for you to undress to your comfort level and to get under the top sheet and blanket. They wait and always knock before entering, making sure you tell them it’s okay to come in the room.
WHAT DO I DO IF I’M SELF-CONSCIOUS ABOUT A CERTAIN BODY PART OF MINE AND DON’T WANT THE THERAPIST TO SEE IT?
We all can be self-conscious for various reasons, it’s completely normal. Some of the more common concerns are:
- I’m overweight.
- I have excessive hair growth on my body.
- I’ve got acne on my face or back.
- My feet are ugly.
- I have scars.
If you’re self-conscious about a certain part of your body, just tell your massage therapist to avoid that area. Just remember – your therapist is a professional.They work on all types of bodies, ages, and conditions. They are here for you and to meet your specific needs for the session.
WHAT DO I DO IF THE PRESSURE ISN’T DEEP ENOUGH AND I WANT MORE, BUT I DON’T WANT TO INSULT THE THERAPIST?
This is your massage session, so definitely speak up your needs about pressure or any other requests and desires. Your therapist can check in with you on pressure, yet they aren’t mind readers, so they definitely want you to give them feedback for whether you want more or less pressure. Massage Revolution has very experienced and skilled therapists, and how you get the best massage out of them is to clearly speak your needs before, during, and even after your session for next time. We hope you do this, your therapist wants you to do this, so please communicate with them clearly so that they can best meet your needs. It’s as simple assaying “I really prefer deeper pressure there” , “That pressure is too deep there, please go lighter”, or “Can you work more time on that area please.”

This is your time, your massage, your comfort level. Some people have gender preferences, some don’t. It is perfectly acceptable to request a female therapist. It is well known in the massage industry that very often, women prefer female therapists and men often have a preference for female therapists as well. Some people request and prefer male therapists only as well thinking there’s more strength and deeper pressure. As you get more and more experienced receiving massages, you may open up to the possibility of a male therapist. Many people who at first wanted only female therapists find that once they try a male therapist, they actually enjoy the additional strength and pressure a male therapist can offer.
It is very common to become so relaxed that you fall into a deep sleep during the massage. Some people may even worry about drooling or snoring! This is very common. It is also the signs of a great massage that the massage therapist was able to get you so relaxed!
Many people do completely undress for their massage, including all undergarments. You are always completely covered and draped at all times by a blanket and sheet and the only area your therapist uncovers is the area they are working on.
However, it’s most important to undress to your comfort level, as it’s also completely normal to keep on your underwear during the massage. It is completely your choice and the massage therapist is always respectful about it.
When you visit Massage Revolution you are warmly greeted by one of our helpful office staff. They hand you some paperwork to fill out to help best assist you for your massage needs.

It’s YOUR time, so your therapist is open to you leading the conversation whether to talk. It’s fine to talk with your therapist during your massage, and also fine to just remain quiet, relax, and “check out” for an hour. It’s helpful for your therapist to check in with you during your session about pressure, yet feel free to tell your therapist right from the beginning that you wish to remain quiet the entire session.
If you have specific aches, pains, or chief complaints, sometimes it’s really good for your therapist to check in with you on pressure or feedback.
It is important to let the therapist know if you are in pain during the session. It is perfectly acceptable to ask questions and talk during the massage, but it is also appropriate to simply receive the massage and remain completely quiet during your session.
