I understand the need to keep everyone safe from covid , and I am totally happy wearing a mask in my massage. However, when the masseuse wears vinyl gloves throughout the massage, it takes away from the enjoyment of the experience. Not only did the gloves make a lot of noise, but they chafed on my skin when the oil or lotion inevitably dried up. I had raw red spots on my skin for hours afterward, and I found myself focused on the unpleasantness of the massage rather than relaxation. I obviously wasn't going to ask her to remove the gloves, as I am sure she was wearing them to protect herself and me, but I was physically uncomfortable.
