Not everybody is comfortable disrobing for a massage. Even knowing that they’ll be relatively covered with a towel or a paper drape isn’t enough for some.
For newbies to massage, it’s often simply becoming comfortable enough with the process to “take it all off.” But what about those people who have real issues with taking off their clothes in the massage therapist’s office?
For those clients, learning how to give massages that are effective even when clothes are left on will enable you to offer even the most squeamish clients the care they deserve. This blog shares the best types of massage to use for clients wearing clothes, and some suggestions for types of clothes you can give clients that will still enable them to benefit from their massage.

“One of the things that may hinder would-be clients from getting a massage is simply that they don’t want to take their clothes off. Most people believe the only way to get a massage is by being completely undressed, but this is not true; there are a number of massages that you can get while still keeping your clothes on.”
