Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to soothe aches and pains, and facilitate the body’s own healing process. Medical massage is widely used today for many conditions, and using the right products during a massage can increase the health benefits.
EverFlex Cream is a topical, analgesic pain cream that provides temporary relief from aching joints and the surrounding tissue. It contains a clinically proven combination of MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) and a proprietary blend of esterified fatty acids. Arnica/calendula creams offer relief from scratches, rashes, bruises, sprains, muscle pulls, sunburn, cracked and dry skin.
Tei-Fu Massage Lotion is another product that boosts the benefits of a medical massage, penetrating deeply into stiff muscles and joints with emollient, greaseless properties that leave the skin soft and smooth. Another soothing product is Pau D’Arco Lotion, which provides a powerful antibacterial and antifungal herb that is recommended for several inflammatory skin diseases and infections.
Vari-Gone Skin Cream can help clients that struggle with varicose and spider veins during a massage, helping to reduce the appearance of these unsightly marks. Pure essential oils and aromatherapy products are also used during massages, and both can enhance the massage experience.
