When it comes to gender in massage world, whether you are a therapist or a receiver, it is always an issue. Especially now days with the sexual harassment against other massage clients.
Don't be like the guy above struggling during massage session. First of all, if you'd like to get a massage, make sure to have a therapist with the gender of your preference. We desire it for different reasons. This first choice plays an important role when you are receiving a massage, if you don't, it will be difficult to relax and enjoy your session.
Second, familiarize yourself with the type of massage you will be getting. Ask the receptionist questions or google it yourself before your session. The more you know about the type of service you'll get, the better your session will be.
The next issue will go over different modalities to help you determine which massage will be best for you.
