Why I’ve never been for a massage

I seem to hear myself saying ‘I really need to go for a massage’ more and more often these days.

The thing is; I’ve never actually been for one and I’m not sure I ever will.

I don’t doubt that they would be great for easing a lot of my aches pains and muscle stiffness, but I’m not sure I could do it. I think I’d be far too self-conscious about it. Is that silly?

If I’m honest, I don’t really like the fact that so far I have been letting shyness put me off doing something that might actually benefit me. Admittedly, I have put a lot of things off in the past out of fear, like getting the bus or train by myself. Yet, I done all these things, I’ve got over it, and I’m glad I did.

This feels different though. I’m not sure why.

  1. It’s not silly at all….. I would feel really self conscious about having a massage from a total stranger, I think where it is quite an intimate thing…. I hate having my hair cut by anyone other than my friend and now travel nearly 20 miles to his salon, because I feel uncomfortable with people in my personal space.


    1. It’s nice to know someone else feels the same. I don’t mind having my hair cut though. I go wherever is easiest to go and I’m really lucky because there’s one about 5 minutes walk (at my speed) from my house.
