Depending on the massage technique which we will be using, you may or may not need to undress.
For a full body Swedish massage, most people undress completely, though you may choose to wear underwear. You will relax on a padded table designed for stability and comfort.
For many techniques, a lubricant will be used, such as light oil or lotion.
For some kinds of bodywork, no oil is used.
A massage session usually begins with relatively gentle pressure to calm your nervous system and begin releasing your superficial tension.
