I am asked “What should I wear?” from people coming in for a massage. You should wear what you will feel comfortable in. For massage to be the most effective, you have to be relaxed, not thinking about clothes. It really doesn’t matter to me. You will be draped the entire time except for the area I’m working on. It also doesn’t matter what other people have on or take off, since I will be working on you during your time and not them.
There are, however, a few suggestions about what not to wear, including:
– Space suit
– Suit of armor
– Civil War era corset and hoop dress
– Full body cast
– Gorilla costume
– Star Wars imperial trooper uniform
These of course are just suggestions that might make your massage a little less effective.
There are no fashion police in the office. I’ve worked on people wearing a variety of things (fortunately though none of the outfits on the list).
