Will I need to be naked to have a massage in a spa?
The choice is yours! The spa treatment wil be counter productive if you feel embarrassed or uncomfortable. While booking your massage, you can ask for a therapist of the same sex – if that is your wish. Tell your therapist it is your first visit and that you are not sure what to wear – she/he will explain the pros and cons and let you decide. It is advisable to check on arrival at new destinations for local spa customs.
