I use a few different types of oil or cream in my practice. Usually, you’re not really concerned about what the massage therapist is using on you during a massage (unless you have very sensitive skin), but there are many different types of oils, lotions, and creams that massage therapists use. The cream I use most often is Nutri-Naturals from Biotone. You can find ingredients and information here: Nutri-Naturals Cream. I also have 2 oils available: Canola with lemon essential oil, and a pure Grapeseed oil. The Canola is for those who simply prefer the texture of oil over cream. The Grapeseed is intended for those who have very sensitive.
“By touching a body, we touch every event it has experienced. For a few brief moments we hold all of a client’s stories in our hands. We witness someone’s experience of their own flesh, through some of the most powerful means possible: the contact of our hands, the acceptance of the body without judgment, and the occasional listening ear. With these gestures we reach across the isolation of the human experience and hold another person’s legend. In massage therapy, we show up and ask, in so many ways, what it is like to be another human being. In doing so, we build a bridge that may heal us both.” –Tracy.
