Do massage therapists normally expose and then rub your butt?

I know nothing about massage therapy, but my back has been bothering me, so I went to get a massage today. My local mall has a massage "store" that is run by older Asian women who speak very little English. They have certificates on the wall, and seem very kind and (I guess) professional.
I was the only one in the store, and we were behind a screen. Things were going fine, and then she pulled my boxers about halfway down and started rubbing my butt.
It didn't seem sexual or anything, but it made me uncomfortable, especially since I'm married and thus believe only my wife should be seeing my rear end. Between how surprised I was and the language barrier, I just decided to ride it out (I'm from southeastern U.S. and we tend to respond to awkwardness by being quiet).
I know that in the future, I need to set up some ground rules up front, but I'm curious: is this how massages are normally done?
