Question for LMT's

How many work on the glutes? Do you work over the sheet? I'm kind of at a loss as to what to do when I get there, unless it's a regular who is comfortable with the work.

Yes, they do teach you in school. I was curious about work over the sheet with first time client do you do glutes as you do normally or skip it? If my client is comfortable enough to be nude under sheet I do my normal glute work, but when I find they have under clothes on I feel they may not be comfortable with work on that area. Yes, i do ask if they feel comfortable before I proceed. Was just curious about others approach. I have recieved many more massages with glutes being completely skipped. I think it is still a taboo area as we continue to make a reputable name in the industry.

I do ask preference, but was curious about other therapists approach. I want my clients to be comfortable at all times so unless i know for sure i ask them.
