Learn about the terminology to use
- Some terms are outdated and they may be offensive to the therapist.
It is a message therapist and not the masseuse: the massage therapist has been licensed and goes through a great deal of the education with the training so that they can offer therapeutic massage. The masseuse is unlicensed and untrained person and they offer the services that you may expect in the brothel but not the spa.
A table but not the bed: in order to set the massage service away of the sex industry, the massage therapist will use a table and not a bed. When a client is told to undress and to lie down at the table, it is a clinical tone, but telling a client to lie at the bed, is something total different.

- Keep better hygiene
