A full body massage is generally practiced when the client would be completely draped with sheets on the massage table. And generally clients are told to undress as far as they can and still be comfortable. So some people will be completely naked and some people will leave their underwear on and the therapist will know how to work with whatever the client is most comfortable with. That, of course, is a real important factor: being comfortable. Then basically the person's body is massaged entirely, with the exception of course of the breasts and the groin.

That is the sort of general technique. Some people don't work on stomachs very much. I would personally say that is also a mistake because the stomach is so important to massage for so many reasons. But some people don't want that done. The client is definitely in control of the situation. If they don't want a particular area massaged then they shouldn't be forced to do that.
