How should you deal with a ticklish client during a massage? What if you’re the ticklish client – can you still have massages? Is there anything you can do to lessen the ticklish feelings?

As a Thai massage therapist, I recently had a client who was very ticklish – to the point that she didn’t usually have massages, as she found them unbearable. I had concerns about how the treatment would go, but I was up for the challenge!

Read more about my experiences, including my top ticklish tips for both therapists and clients, in my latest article for Natural Health Star Dealing with Ticklishness During a Massage.

If you’re a ticklish person and find it difficult having massages, I’d love to meet you. Contact me to book a Thai massage in Brighton and let’s see if we can work through those tickles!

And do leave a comment below if you feel like sharing your ticklish experiences – I’m always interested to hear from you.

With love and blessings

  1. My name is Ronald Pralgo. I am 68 years old and have pain issues with my back (Five herniated discs.) In researching a course of action I’ve become fed up with pain management clinics and chiropractors. The only course of action I have left is laser spine surgery. With that aside I think that a massage would greatly benefit me. I have been looking into it but haven’t quite committed myself to it yet. My biggest problem this is that I’m deathly ticklish. It is very embarrassing and I’m concerned that the therapist. (Hopefully a women if you that doesn’t create a conflict.) would find it annoying at best or perhaps that I may be enjoying myself too much. Nothing of the sort. I’m just looking for relieve and have run out of options.

    1. Hi Ronald, sorry to hear of your back pain issues, it must be quite debilitating. I guess the thing about Thai massage is it’s given over the clothes and because it uses a combination of acupressure and stretching movements, you can start gently and go deeper, as needed. We don’t use massage strokes, which I imagine could be a common cause of ticklishness. Anyway, it’s up to you, I’m sure you know what your body needs. Good luck on your journey. All the best, Hannah.
