Whether or not to wear socks to a massage is a personal preference. However, there are a few things to consider when deciding whether or not to don some socks.
If you choose to wear socks, the type of socks you wear is important. Thin, cotton socks are recommended as they will allow your feet to breathe, while thicker, synthetic socks can trap moisture and heat. Many masseuses prefer that clients wear socks as they help to prevent the massage oil from staining your feet. Additionally, they can also provide a sense of comfort and security.
If you choose not to wear socks, you should be prepared and bring a pair of flip flops so you don’t have to walk in your bare feet from the massage room to the restroom. Also, the massage table and floor can be cold and slippery, so having a pair of socks may help keep your feet warm and provide some traction.
Ultimately, the decision to wear socks or not is up to you. If you feel more comfortable wearing socks, then go ahead and do so. If you prefer to go without, take the proper precautions to ensure your feet stay warm and comfortable.
