I've had lots of massages, from lots of therapists, and very rarely have they tried to massage my chest, belly, or butt. I've never explicitly told them not to, although you could do that at the beginning. Usually before they start they ask you if you have specific things that you'd like worked on. You could say that you are nervous about being touched in places that make you uncomfortable, so please ask before you move to a new place. Or please just do the back, neck, arms and legs (or whatever). I've definitely asked to have the whole hour spent working on my back or neck at times.

I took my mom for a massage once, and she was totally nervous about the same things. She ended up just asking for a hand, neck, and foot massage, with all of her clothes on. Afterward she raved about it. She'd never had her hands massaged before, and does a lot of hand sewing, so if felt delicious.
