Virginia law requires a massage therapists to use a sheet or blanket to cover the body when clothing is removed. You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed. It is inappropriate to ask the massage therapist not to use draping.
If a client acts or says something inappropriate that is sexual in nature, the Massage Therapist reserves the right to end session and collect full payment. Also, some cases may result in contacting the police.
