Today, Iím going to talk about the two most embarrassing situations that my clients normally face when massage therapists are around. At times, clients feel embarrassed to the extent that they donít call up the same masseuse again. On a number of occasions Iíve seen people move out having a shameful look on their face. Well, if they only knew that this type of situation was common, Iím sure they wouldnít do that. To ensure responsibility on my part, Iíve explained the two most embarrassing situations that my clients face and how should they actually react to it:

Pool of drool
It is common that people feel at peace after a relaxing massage and often drift to slumber. However, when they wake up, they find their pillow or massage table wet with drool. This is a common occurrence which happens because of excess saliva production during sleep. Simply ask for a tissue from the massage therapist, or keep it near your pillow before the massage begins.

Erection
Male clients are worried about erection during massage therapy session. It is true that erection happens while massage, but it is nothing to worry about, or feel embarrassed. People do get erection in regular therapeutic massage. The parasympathetic nervous system of your body activates when it senses touch. This causes partial or full erection.
Your massage therapist is experienced enough to understand this and will ignore it. If you still feel conscious, you can wear boxers or menís bikini bathing suit during the session.
Apart from this, there are other hesitations, which keep people from going for a massage. This includes obesity, not knowing how to tip a massage therapist and finding the right massage parlor. I will deal with them in the upcoming posts. Until then, happy massaging!

Thanks for sharing. Before massage session I usually ask client to not be ashamed. This is important so that client reach optimum relaxation.
