Mat-based bodywork is particularly well-suited to the Asian massages of Shiatsu and Thai, though other modalities can be integrated into a mat massage.
The client can expect to be fully clothed for the massage; no oil or lotion is used. The client should wear loose-fitting or otherwise movable clothing. Pajama or workout pants are ideal.
Any massage that is typically performed on a mat on the floor can be adjusted to be performed on a table, as needed.
