What Can I Do If I’m Self-Conscious?
We all have our hang-ups and insecurities, but that doesn’t mean they should stop us from trying new things. If you’re someone who’s self-conscious when it comes to getting a massage, don’t let that keep you from experiencing the benefits! Massage is a great way to improve your overall health and well-being, and there are plenty of different types of massages to choose from. So don’t be afraid to give it a try – you might just find that you love it!
I’m self-conscious about a certain part of my body and don’t want the therapist to see me. What can I do? People are self-conscious for various reasons. Some of the more common concerns are:
- I’m overweight.
- I have excessive hair growth on my body.
- I’ve got acne on my face or back.
- My feet are ugly.
- I have scars.
Being self-conscious should never keep you from seeking health care, whether it’s visiting your doctor or seeing a massage therapist.
If you’re self-conscious about a certain part of your body, you can ask the massage therapist to avoid that area.
Or, you can opt for a therapy that is done through clothing, such as shiatsu or Thai massage. Because no massage oil or lotion is used, you remain fully clothed during the session. (Kyron is most comfortable doing this type of massage)
You can even bring your own comfortable clothes to wear.
Just remember to provide complete and accurate information on your health history form, so that the massage therapist is aware of any precautions or contraindications.
