NO! In fact, you don't have to do anything! First and foremost, you should only undress to your comfort level-- if your therapist is trying to coerce you into undressing beyond your initial instinct, then you're probably not with the right therapist for you. Some techniques may need to be modified to accommodate whatever clothing you choose to leave on, but where there is a will, there's a way, and massage therapy is rich in various modalities and techniques that can be used to accommodate you at any comfort level. In fact, some modalities, such as sports massage, are designed and best applied for when the client leaves their clothes on!
