Whether or not to wear clothing during a sports massage is ultimately up to the client’s preference.

Is Clothing Optional During a Sports Massage?

Some clients choose to wear comfortable clothing or athletic wear during their session, while others prefer to be unclothed or partially clothed.

Benefits of Wearing Clothing During a Sports Massage

Wearing clothing during a sports massage can provide a sense of comfort and security for some clients. Additionally, some clients may feel more relaxed and less self-conscious with clothing on, which can help them better enjoy the massage.

Benefits of Being Unclothed During a Sports Massage

Being unclothed during a sports massage allows the therapist to have direct contact with the skin, which can help to target specific areas of tension more effectively. This can lead to a more thorough and targeted massage experience. Additionally, being unclothed can help to increase relaxation and promote better circulation.


If you prefer to be unclothed, your therapist will provide draping to ensure that you are comfortable and covered at all times except for the area being worked on.

It is important to note that a professional sports massage therapist will always respect your boundaries and preferences regarding clothing. If you are looking to improve your optimal sports experience with massage therapy, then check out our therapists at IMMERSE Modern Massage!
