What should I do during a massage?

Yesterday I went to the Spa to get my back massaged. It was a present that I got on my birthday and that’s the only reason I went for it. I know massages are supposed to be relaxing but I find them very stressful. I just feel uncomfortable, shy and really nervous. And what do I do when I get nervous? Talk. So there I am: lying seminaked, with my face stuck in some sort of hole, almost suffocated by a towel and talking talking talking. I always wonder how people relax in that situations! Do you? Don’t you feel like you have to say something or create a bond with the person who is touching you? I mean, that gets intimate sometimes! Once a friend of mine got me a full body scrub massage in a very fancy Spa as a birthday present and although it was supposed to be an incredible experience, really exclusive and luxurious, I had a terrible time because I didn’t know what to do while the lady was scrubbing my… well, everything!!! I almost run out of topics to talk about!

  1. I agree. I’ve never had a massage but how can it not be awkward! I feel similar when I’m getting my nails done or my hair cut. I’ve seen people really connect with the people who are providing these services but I’m so awkward I don’t ever know what to talk about.
