"How do you make someone who has never had a massage comfortable?"
Centennial Therapists Oct 3, 2013
From Paul: "I let the client know before they get on the table, that if during the massage they have any questions to please ask. I also let them know if at any point they feel uncomfortable to speak up.
From Carlton: "After the client has informed me as to why they are coming in for a massage, I let them know what I will be doing throughout the massage. I also let them know that if they have any question pertaining to the massage to ask. I believe as a therapist it is important to educate our clients, especially clients who are new to massage."
From Brittany: "During the consultation I would let the client know what to expect. During the session I would gently let them know what I will be doing. I would also encourage the client to please speak up if, at any time they are uncomfortable."
From Trina: "After consulting with my client on needs for their massage, I would tell them to undress to their comfort level, and during the massage explain each thing I am doing and why. If they are uncomfortable, I would explain and change to make my client comfortable."
