If you have been around the nudist community online for any period of time you may have encountered conversations about nudist massage or naturist massage. Part of that conversation is a debate about what makes for a good and “true” naturist or nudist massage. We decided to go to a source and talk to The nudist owner of a massage service. We found Got Your Back owner and operator Sandee. We sent our editor Earl D to get a massage and to get answers to some questions while he was there. Tough job right? Read on to learn more about Got Your Back Massage and its nudist owner.
CFL – What is Got Your Back?
GYB – Got Your Back is the name of my massage and bodywork business.
CFL – How did GYB get started?
GYB – While in college, we were required to create a business name along with a 1, 5, and 10 year plan. So I had it created in my mind before graduating in December 2007
CFL -What services do you offer?
GYB – Most massages I do are deep tissue and therapeutic. I generally use massage cups, bamboo sticks and salt rocks in addition to hands on. I will be adding in the DeepFeet massage as soon as possible. Since I’ve just gotten I’m certified to do it I don’t have bars above the massage table yet. Even though most people are only interested in deep and therapeutic I am certified to do Amma-shiatsu chair massage,Reiki energy, Raindrop Therapy, hot stone massage, massage cupping, Bamboo Fusion massage, body scrub and DeepFeet Bar Therapy
CFL – Where are you located?
GYB – My business is located primarily inside Turtle Lake Resort but I have available space to work in Marshall, MI 3 days a week
CFL -You are located inside a clothing optinal resort, how did that come about?
GYB – My husband talks too much. About 2 weeks before I finished my college classes my husband told me that he’d been talking to one of the owners and that I could start working there when I graduated.
CFL – Does the fact that you are in a clothing optional venue change anything about how you operate?
GYB -The only difference is since it’s inside a clothing optional place and most people walk in my office nude, they are given the option of keeping the draping cover that is on the massage table.
CFL – Some nudist suggest that a “true” nudist massage requires the massuer massage therapist to be clothes free nude as well as the massage like what are your thoughts on that?
GYB – In my opinion, it would be unprofessional to do my work unclothed. If I were to be nude working it could give the person getting the massage the wrong idea; that they could be inappropriate because I wasn’t dressed as other professional massage therapists.
CFL- some individuals may think that a clothing optional massage setting involves something more than the usual massage have you ever encountered that – how do you deal with that kind of situation?
GYB – I don’t think any massage therapist hasn’t experienced inappropriateness during a massage in one form or another. If anyone ever suggests anything I simply tell them they need to be quiet and enjoy the massage or they will need to leave immediately and I will report them to the Turtle Lake office.
CFL – Would you describe yourself as a nudist? How does that affect how you operate as a massage therapist?
GYB – Yes, I’ve been a member at turtle lake resort for over 21 years.
CFL – If someone wanted to make an appointment or learn more about the types of massage services available how would they reach you?
GYB – The best way to contact me is either to call and leave a phone number and message or send me a text
CFL – Is there anything else you want to share with our readers?
GYB – Massage is healthcare not a luxury! Don’t wait until your feeling and expect to be feeling great after just one massage. It took time to feel so bad, it’s going to take time to feel better.
Get a massage at least once a month to help feel great both mentally and physically. Massage can lower stress and who doesn’t need that?
When you get a massage let the therapist know if you want more or less pressure or if it hurts. If you get a massage you don’t like, don’t stop getting a massage, just try someone else.
