Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. It is usually done by people who specialised in the field. They are called Massage Therapists. A massage therapist is someone who treats clients by using touch to manipulate the soft-tissue muscles of the body. With their touch, massage therapists relieve pain, rehabilitate injuries, reduce stress, increase relaxation, and aid in the general wellness of their clients.

Massaging is not a gender-specific job hence both males and females can work as massage therapists. However, depending on the location and culture, the clients for the massage therapist may differ. While some people believe that both males and females could go for a body massage from the opposite gender, some consider it as something which is not proper.

Most people responded that they won’t allow it because it is not proper to allow another man to be touching your wife in the name of massaging. However, few people opined that they could allow it, after all, it is just body massaging and nothing more. Check out some of the reactions below:
