I am going on vacation and one thing that I am doing on vacation is getting a facial, body wrap, and massage. I know that typically you get naked for most of these things or leave on the bare minimum. Typically, for a body wrap, do they put the mud and stuff on your boobs, butt, and other parts? I don't really care, I just want to know so I can be prepared when I go. Also, if I go for a full body massage, what does that entail? Are they literally going to touch every part of my body??? Thanks for the help!!!

I'm not sure about body wraps, but when going for a massage, people usually wear nothing or just underwear. Even if you choose to wear nothing, you'll still be covered by either a towel or a sheet, unless you request to be massaged without any sort of covering (although some massage practitioners may deny this request due to legal/ethical/personal reasons). And no, they won't touch "every" part of your body. Massaging areas such as breasts or genitals are strictly off-limits, unless you go to one of those shady erotic massage parlours.

Usually the therapist will tell you to undress and leave (assuming you will take everything off) or they may say to leave something on for a body wrap if that is the norm. If you are unsure ask at the time. Most places allow you to keep something on or let you go naked if you prefer.
If the mud is supposed to cleanse the skin and remove toxins, etc then I would think it would be beneficial to apply it to the chest and butt, but they probably don't want it getting in places it's not easy to get it out from!

Wear whatever you feel is comfortable for the massage. If you are recieving a body wrap it would be best to just wear underwear and a sport bra,that is if you are modest. Most places will be professional in their draping skills so as not to expose you should you want to be totally nude when recieving massage or spa treatments such as a body wrap. As for what to actually wear for the massage itself, its best if you are totally nude. that way we can address those areas that need attention,but we can work with your boundaries and we respect the boundaries you set for us. We already create a boundary for ourselves when we are draping you for massage. I would remind you that if you go to a therapist and you are complaining of lower back pain, the glutes are part of the lower back and if you want to have your back pain addressed thoroughly then leave the underwear off, other wise the therapist will be limited by what they can do,but not too much.

For a full body massage, the therapist may or may not give you a small yes/no question paper to fill out, and then he/she will ask you if you have any injuries or if there are any parts that need attention or certain parts on your body that he/she should be careful with. After that, the therapist will first take you into the massage room and he/she will tell you to remove all your clothes except your underwear but, you can remove your underwear if it makes you feel more comfortable while getting a massage. Then the therapist will tell you to either lie face up or face down on the massage table with a sheet covering you, and then he/she will leave the massage room for you to undress and lie on the massage table. Then after a few minutes, the therapist will knock on the door to see if you're ready. If so, you just say come in. Then for example, if you're face down on your stomach (your face will be resting on a face lift), the therapist will uncover the sheet off your back to massage your back, shoulders, glutes, head, ears, the bottom of your arms, and hands. Then he/she will cover your back with the sheet. Next the therapist will uncover your legs to massage the back of your legs, feet, and toes. Then the therapist will cover your legs, and then he/she will lift the sheet and he/she will tell you to turn over on your back (the therapist won't be looking at you when you are turning over or, he/she will lift the sheet up and just look at your face turning over but not your body). Then the therapist will massage your face, ears, head, chest, the top of your arms, and hands. Then after that, the therapist will uncover the sheet to massage the top of your legs, feet, and toes. Once the massage is over, the therapist will cover your legs with the sheet, and he/she will tell you that it's over and he/she will tell you that you can lie on the table for as long as you need and/or he/she will tell you to take your time getting up and he/she will leave the room. Then as soon as you are ready to get up off the table, you just get dressed back in your clothes and leave the massage room, and the therapist will tell you to be sure to drink plenty of water or, he/she will give you a cup or bottle of water for you to drink. I hope all this information helps. Enjoy your massage for whichever day you go.

A body wrap is different. They actually wrap up your entire body in a mummification and stick you in an oven. You bake for about 30 minutes and then they unwrap you and your skinnier. Most people just wear their panties and bra's for comfort.

But panties and bras make me very uncomfortable.

I work in a spa. Nude is best, especially for wraps and hydrotherapy. But do not worry, the therapist will cover your private parts. Diring the massage we (like most places in US) use a sheet draping, for wraps and hydro the draping is minimal - a folded towel to cover just the gluteal cleft (butt crack) and for women an additional towel covering the breast area. Definitely try the hydro therapy treatment, feels awesome, one of my favourite to receive. Sometimes shy people feel a little nervous because you are all wet with just a little towel covering you, but once they've done it, they love it (or I should say most of them). Another comment from someone who's never been in the Vichy room with all the hydro equipment may be: "this looks creepy or it looks like a surgery room or a kitchen, and what is that hose for, pointing at the scots hose". Again after the first time it does not look "scary" any more. And some people just do not like to try new things. Oh, well, bad for them.

My advice is get completly naked when going for a back massage, that includes removing your bra and knickers, i suffer awful back pain, and would need a massage every week, i have to get my glutes massaged and i find it better without briefs on, my therpaist knows me now and she just says get undressed, but last week when i went for my weekly massage, there was a new lady in for the day, she told me to get undressed, but to my horror she asked me was a wearing a thong, when i said no, she said it was her policy to leave briefs on, then when i asked would i remove my bra, she said no just undo the back, but leave the bra on, well to be honsent, it was the most unpleasant massage i ever had, she was constantly lifting my knickers and bra straps, i couldnt relax at all, so next time im insisiting on being totally naked.

I'm a male and one day I got a mud wrap just to see what's it's like. The person walked me to the room and told me to change into the robe on the bed. I did. They walked me to another room where this young lady was going to put the mud on me. She said to lose the robe so she can apply the mud on me. One thing missing, my underware. I undressed all the way not knowing what to expect. The lady thought I had underware on. I was naked right in front of her. She said where is your underware. I said they did not provide me one. I said can we do it without the underware. She said it's up to me. I said sure. She applied mud all over me except for one area, my member. I was real hard as she was applying the mud. It was in her face when applying the mud on my legs. I was hoping it would touch her. She kept sneeking a peek at it. I said can you put mud on it. She said sure. She wrapped me up and sent me to the hot room. Nothing sexual happened. I plan on going back again.

I went first time for a full body oil message spa of the internationa chain STRANDS in India. I was in my underwears. The point I wish clarified is that while massging my back, he removed my underwear and massages my bottoms well and hard, oiling my anus quite a few times and working up to my groins. Since I get the massage done for oiling my dry body I enjoyed that almost every part of my body (except the penis) was fully oiled and massage. What is this massage called and is it normal or was it some sort of nakedness that my masseur enjoyed??? It is very important for me to know please.

Well, I went for a Kerala Ayurveda rejuvinating massage today.

I've undressed to my underware and then the therapist there forced to wear a specially designed outfit,(a gochi kind of)and he tied it on my underware covering my penis and asked me to remove my underware. After me taking it off he pulled it and covered my butt crack. after massing my front, when it came to massaging my back, he completely removed it and kept me completely exposed. It was kind of embarassing, but the massage was good though.

Is this common? I have gone to many a massages, but this kind of thing never happend to me..

This is common in ayurvedic massage. What he asked you to put on is called a LANGOT.
Its generally a white piece of cloth similar to a underwear that you need to drape around your groins.

yes sure it is part of procedure...I have exp it all the time I've been to ayur massage center. Yes they tie the langot stings, then ask u to lower the underwear & to keep it in the designated place. he then brings the loose end of the langot(which is covering the penis right now), to pass beneath the testis, covering the ass crack and tuck it under the knot.While massaging the bac, they untie the strings n let loose the langot. Yes it may feel awkward, but sinc eu r lying face down, no issues. This way the masseur can cover all parts of the bac, without barriers. Once done massaging the bac, he will tie the stings again, tuck the cloth under as before and asks u to roll over. massaging all of the front, but I fail to understand y the langot is not opened like before..?? maybe they expect a hardon usually, so to avoid embarassment they keep it tied, as it provides resembling a POLE! But anyway, as i observed, the loin cloth(langot) is made of very thin cotton cloth n with oil poured on it becomes almost transperent. It will not help hide u r penis, but sure act like a tent!!! and sure the whole episode of massage will anyway expose u completely to the massuer n it is daily business for him. So no worry.

Also, at some ayur mass centers i observed, two masseur massaging at same time. And sometimes, they have a technic that whle u r lying on ur stomach, they make u turn to one side with one leg stretched and other half folded. this causes the front of the body, stomach n thights to be raised from the table.In the posture the masseur can see all ur front. So guys who r shy or r uncomfortable being nude in presence of others, may think twice.

PS: Lemme add that in all kerala auy mass centers i have visited, the masseur are professional n dont get into extra service/happy ending. thou they may sometimes do a lite tickling massage jus to relax u..

Yes, to get the full benefit of the massage is to go nude.
