"My company exclusively provides "outcall" services. There are many different aspects of it to consider, and advertising is a whole subject unto itself. I thought it might be useful for you to check some of our in home massage FAQs to…"
"When I first started out, I was a Shiatsu Therapist. I massaged clients on a very thin mat that was on the floor. And the clients were fully clothed. So yea, you can give a good massage with the cleint fully clothed. I…"
"In reality, a great massage can be given fully clothed. Not to say that this should always be the case. Point being, there really is no reason to undrape the glutes. For basic swedish massage, simple cat-pawing-like compressions…"
"You really need to get over that aversion. About 8 of every ten clients you see will want their glutes worked, and will complain if the therapist doesn't. And if they are suffering from painful hips, low back or legs, IMO it's…"
"I only feel comfortable doing it when I am giving massages to my boyfriend. lol and he is happy to play guinea pig to any homework I have.

"Yes i always work undraped glutes, it is a very important muscle group. I dont think i would make a very good therapist skipping a whole muscle group. If the client leaves their underwear on, i will at least work the area with compression."
"i personally do not touch the glutes undraped unless asked to massage that area. in which case the glutes remain draped unless i suspect direct pressure and contact is required to better massage out a trigger point."
"Healthy discussion here. To me the usage is based on comfort for both the client and the practitioner. Privacy for the client and an avenue for the practitioner to be able to work on the buttocks and nearby areas without violating privacy as well as…"
"Thanks Laurie. I have encountered many therapists who really try to avoid working under a sheet, or simply refuse to do it at all because either they are themselves not comfortable with it (image an LMT not comfortable enough with the human body to…"
