    Your traps are tight because of one of two things. Perhaps your pecs or abs are weak OR you have blockage in the trap muscles causing them to stay contracted.

    You need a therapist either male or female who does Neuromuscular techniques. One to two sessions and you should feel relaxed in the upper back and shoulders.

    YOUR CONCERNS ARE REAL BUT UNWARRANTED.FIRST YOU NEED A THERAPIST(MALE OR FEMALE) WHO IS PROFESSIONAL ENOUGH THAT IF YOU DO START TO GET AN ERECTION WOULD COVER YOU WITH A TOWEL TO HELP CONCEAL THINGS SO THE MASSAGE CAN CONTINUE.SECOND YOUR TRAPS ARE TIGHT VERY LIKELY BECAUSE YOU DON'T STRETCH ENOUGH, MOST PEOPLE DON'T. I WORK ON PRO ATHLETES AND THIS IS STILL THE NUMBER 1 PROBLEM. I TELL THEM BUT THEY FIGURE I WILL TAKE CARE OF THE TIGHTNESS,BUT IF I HAVE TOO THEY ARE GOING TO FEEL IT.I CAN RELEASE ANYTHING BUT THERE IS A PRICE TO PAY( AS IN FEELING POSSIBLE PAIN ). NMT THERAPY IS GREAT, I MYSELF USE CHINESE MEDICINE TECHNIQUES TO CONQUER THE PROBLEM SUCCESSFULLY EVERY TIME. HOPE THIS HELPS

    even though--as pointed out--there is a massage section, I thought I would offer my two cents worth here...
    I have been a massage therapist for the past 6 years, and erections are an almost every session occurrance. Sometimes, it's caused because the client is turned on by me; but more often than not, it is the cause of blood being pushed toward the pelvic area, with the client also responding to touch in the usual "erogenous areas."
    Most of my clients I assume are gay--since I live in SF--but in the past I have had certifiably straight men who get hard. If you ignore it as a therapist, no one gets embarrassed. A CMT without tact might comment, but generally a male therapist--whether they are gay or straight--will totally understand. Most of us can remember back to when even the wind blowing or the thought of changing during PE classes would cause a hard-on.
    Try out some male therapists...and if it makes you more comfortable to mention the potential embarrassment upfront of an erection, then do it.
    Trust us, a busy CMT has seen it all.

    Remember the Seinfeld episode where George went to a male massage therapist? When the massage was over, he told Jerry that while he was getting the massage, "IT MOVED!". Erections happen when guys get massages. Don't worry about it. It won't be the first time the massage therapist (male or female, gay or straight) has seen a client with a woody.

    yeah i have to echo the sentiments here, as someone who has had a lot of massages.

    first, i vastly prefer a male, and generally have found them to be stronger, but i know that's not true in many cases. it's skill that really matters.

    second, any half-decent massage therapist is so used to guys getting boners they won't think a thing of it. it's happened to me several times and it's never been an issue. (in fact, i think they secretly like it because it means they are being effective!)

    Though I personally haven't had a whole hour long message session with either sexes. I actually believe it has to do with your connection with the therapist. I have a friend that is/was going to be a message therapist and when she would practice on me we just...clicked. Another event; I was at a walk for diabetes event and like some company like message envoy was there. And they had two females and a male therapists giving away messages. Luckily i got to try each sex...didn't help though. Both were rigid and really didn't know what they were doing. So that's just my blah...hope it made sence.
