And then there was...

...the slightly odd couple who kept their pants on during their couple's massage. And I'm not just talking underpants here, I'm talking full-length TROUSERS.

WTF is wrong with people?

Was it their first massage? I have to admit.... my first massage with a stranger, I was nervous about the whole naked thing. That lasted about 35 seconds once she began, and it's never bothered me since.

No, they'd had massages before. They were just odd. And they didn't tip, either, though the lady bought a bunch of retail stuff before they left. Weird.

My favorite masseur is a gentleman from Hong Kong, trying to transfer his physician's certs from China to the U.S. In the interim, he does deep tissue massage at a local indoor Swap Meet, with no provision for real privacy or clothes removal. In short, his skills are AMAZING. I have many pain issues, including diabetic neuropathy, sometimes barely able to stumble in, and in an hour (a painful hour) I'm pain free!!
Because of the venue, clothes-on is the only option, but with his skills, through the jeans and socks is no problem!! I only wish I could visit more often.

That is just STRANGE.

Maybe the couple were unaware of the necessity of tipping. Can you verify if the duration, price, and tip range are still valid? Tipping page for massage therapist: http://www.tipping.org/tips/personalservices.html.

Regarding their attire, they could be modest as well. I'm going to schedule a massage with you if I ever go to Texas. But you'll need to work through several layers of foundation undergarments and thick fuzzy sweaters.

What? I'm a shy guy. It's going to be your first clothes on, hands off massage! ;)

George, sometime it has to hurt to be effective, unfortunately! But the results are worth it, right?

Phlegmmy, INDEED.

Jun Chang, the gentleman was asked by the front desk, "Would you like to add gratuity?" And he replied, "No, definitely not."
I dunno about modesty, I suspect a communications error.
It won't be my first clothes-on massage, btw...if you come to visit me, I mean! I've done it before, and I've also done tons of chair massage, which is also clothed, of course. :)

Amazing how a couple of sentences can send so many ridiculous and depraved thoughts through one's head. I'll stick with something relatively clean though...maybe they have alien genitalia?

Christina LMT said...

Shannon, that's something I really don't even want to speculate about. Ew. ;)

George said...

@Christina...I wasn't complaining. I have no problem with the pain, because the result is no pain. And this cat works through Levis and sweatshirts!

Christina LMT said...

George, outstanding!
I'm glad you've found such an exceptional therapist. I doubt I'd be even half as effective working through clothes.

Christina, I seriously have no idea how couples massage works. Just one therapist? You go back and forth between them? Seriously, I don't know.

Christina LMT said...

It's basically two separate people getting massages from two separate therapists, in the same room. Sisters, friends, couples, mothers and daughters, they all get couple's (or side-by-side massages) at one time or another.
