Every well-trained massage therapist should be aware of the guidelines they must follow. When a massage therapist inappropriately touches a client, it is considered a criminal offence. It is never acceptable for a massage therapist to make contact with the genitals, such as the vagina, penis, or testicles. If a client requests it, it can be seen as prostitution.
When receiving a massage, you must be able to trust that your massage therapist will not make you feel uncomfortable or worse, will not sexually assault you. Unfortunately, this does happen, as 180 Massage Envy customers recently reported to Buzzfeed. So let's discuss what to expect when getting a massage. Five cases involved inappropriate conduct of a sexual nature, including oral sex and maintaining sexual intercourse on the massage table.
It is important to remember that during a massage session, the therapist should not lift the sheet too many times or massage sexual areas for extended periods of time. As the client, you must be able to relax and feel comfortable while being partially or fully undressed. It is essential for massage therapists to understand that any form of inappropriate contact with their clients is unacceptable and can result in criminal charges. If you are ever in a situation where you feel uncomfortable or unsafe during a massage session, it is important to speak up and report it immediately.
