Massage Therapy: What to Expect and How to Prepare : Oils, Lotions & Creams Used in Massage Therapy

Hi! This is Tanya for Expert Village Intuition
Salon and Spa. The next thing that we are talking about are oils, lotions and creams.
These are the things that your massage therapist will use on you while you are being worked
on. The first thing that most massage therapists use is lotion. It is a hypo-allergenic, its
unscented, it is for sensitive skin; this is what most massage therapists use. It will
not stain your clothes, it is very easy to work with, it is specially made so the massage
therapist has a good glide on your body. When they work on you they do not get stuck in
your skin and it is not oily. This absorbs into your skin pretty well, that way you do
not have to worry about it later on. The next thing that they have is oil. Massage oil is
also specially made – usually it is grape seed oil or almond oil. There are different
specialty oils that they use. So that your skin absorbs it, it is not greasy. Different
massage therapists require different things. If you are super, super sensitive you may
ask your massage therapist to use oil instead of massage lotion so that is the way you make
sure that, you do not have to worry about getting any adverse reactions. The next thing
that there is is massage cream, it can come unscented, it can come colorless, perfume
less. This that I have right here and it is milk and honey and it is scented but it is
not overly scented; you do not have to worry about it too much but your massage therapist
will probably use one of these two on your entire body. And you can ask them if they
do any kind of specialty treatments, like here in Intuition we do a foot treatment that
you will see later on. But these are the two that they will primarily use on you: either
the massage lotion, which is made specially for massaging and so your skin should not
react adversely to it, and also the massage oil; and that is another thing that you do
not have to worry about your skin.
