Is Talking During Massage Ok?
Yes. Talking during massage is totally cool. It is your massage session after all.
There are a few things to consider if you want to chit-chat during your massage, however.
- Is there a potential for your chitter to be heard in other massage rooms?
- Does the therapist seem too focused to talk?
Outside of those two items, you are probably safe to tell all!
As a therapist, I only talk if the client wants to talk. I like to gauge how chatty my client feels by letting them initiate conversation a few times while I keep my responses short but engaging. This way, the client only talks as long as they wish. If the client wants to be done talking halfway through, it is easy to figure out and I don’t carry on accidentally ruining their session.
