Unfortunately yes - we are seeing this more and more everywhere, not just during massages. Since most of the massage businesses do their communication over the phones they are constantly looking at it to set up the next visit and future appointments. I do not think it would be inappropriate for you to ask them to leave the phone off or outside during your session. It is unfortunate that our new social devices and apps have made us less in-tune to social correctness.
Inspired Touch Massage Therapy for women by appointment only. Located in the West Palm Beach FL.
The fact that the massage therapist is talking on the phone during a session is unacceptable. The atmosphere of relaxation is disturbed, the massage therapist is distracted from work, and he does not receive the pleasure for which the visitor comes. I was lucky that I did not come across this. I often visit erotic massage (I find it there http://uamassage.kiev.ua/) , and there masseuses are fully involved in their work. Thanks to this, I can completely relax and enjoy the process.
