Do You Talk During a Massage?

Should You Talk During Your Massage Session?

If you’re new to massage, you might be wondering, should I talk during my session? Is there things I shouldn’t say or is it ride not to talk? Some people release by being chatty, some people relax in silence. So let’s talk about whether or not we should talk, and what about during a massage.


Is it rude not to talk during your massage?


No, it is not rude to be silent during your massage. In fact, many people prefer to relax in silence and simply enjoy the sensations of the massage. Your massage therapist will follow your lead and respect your preferences.


What not to say during a massage?


It’s important to remember that massage therapists are here to serve you in a non sexual way. Any time you mention anything sexual, it is grounds for immediate termination of the session. Any sexual advances will immediately end the session, and the client will be asked to leave.


What are you supposed to do during a massage?


Focus on deep breathing, focusing on the sensations of the massage, and letting go of any stressful thoughts or worries. If you experience any discomfort, politely tell the therapist that they can adjust the pressure, music, or temperature of the table.


Do you make noises during a massage?

Some people release tension by sighing or moaning. Other forms of vocalization can be cathartic form of tension release for the person receiving massage. This is perfectly normal and is a sign that the massage is effective. However, if you feel uncomfortable making any noise, that is also perfectly fine.


What are good things to say during a massage?


Definitely let your therapist know if you need more or less pressure. As therapists, we want your experience to be enjoyable and comfortable. If you need a blanket or pillow, that may be able to help you be more comfortable. Just be sure to let us know if you need anything during your session.




All in all, it’s important to do what feels most comfortable for you, so you can relax fully into the experience. Just remember to communicate openly and respectfully with your massage therapist, and avoid any inappropriate comments or behavior. At the end of the day, we are here for you. and want you to have the most relaxing experience possible.

    Wow! Walking into Immerse Modern Massage, my entire body immediately relaxed right at the front door. The aromatherapy is so intoxicating and soothing, and the ambiance is very nice. Walking into the treatment room was even better. They … More really did such a good job with the place! Not to mention the massage table! Omg, it felt so incredible to be sandwiched in between healing frequencies, warmth, and high vibrations. I can’t wait to go back!!! I was impressed to say the least.

    Such a lovely experience from beginning to end. The lobby was beautifully decorated with plants, and Mason greeted me with such warmth. The table vibrates with music and is so comfortable and warm. The weighted blankets helped me feel so … More cozy and relaxed. The technique and grounded presence Mason offers is excellent. I especially enjoyed the warm scented towel on my face and neck at the end of the massage. So rejuvenating and relaxing. I felt calm and peaceful. Wholeheartedly recommend!

    Wow! My massage with Mason was healing on so many levels! He addressed the spots of tension and diligently worked to remind my muscles that it’s okay to relax. He was very attentive to my needs and comfort.
    Immerse is definitely an appropriate
    … More name for this space as you are enveloped in delightfully warm infrared heat (through amethyst crystals!), the soothing sounds of a waterfall, and a sound bath of vibrations coming directly from the table!
    The thoughtful intention put in to making Immerse Modern Massage the healing environment that is it is apparent and very much appreciated!

    Entering the space I immediately felt calm, the lighting and ambiance was perfect for relaxing. The warmth, low light and wooden ceiling made me feel like I was in a sauna. Mason greeted me and made me feel comfortable as we entered the … More massage room. The bed was heated, with weighted blanket and calming music vibrated the entire bed. I melted away as mason massaged my whole body, taking care to leave me mostly covered under the warm blanket the entire time. He also used heated towels and a wonderful essential oil blend. I felt truly relaxed and my whole body vibrated with warmth and comfort. Would definitely come back again!

    Mason is awesome! I just had an amazing massage experience and loved it. He attentively addressed the tension spots in my body and worked through them. The massage table vibrates synced up to the meditative music which was sooo relaxing … More and helped me be super dropped into the moment. The weighted blanket and the warm scented towels were another highlight. Highly recommend. Thank you, Mason!
