What is Lotion massage?

Lotion massage is a functional alternative to massage oil and an essential component of deep tissue, stimulating and non-slip techniques. Lotions provide a non-greasy formula that is ideal for medium glide, maximum friction massage. They also allow the therapist to have complete control without excessive drag on the skin, providing optimum relief of tension and stress.

What does Lotion massage work?

Lotion massage conditions the skin throughout the massage and yet doesn't absorb quickly into the skin. Blends of lotions are perfectly balanced to provide glide with enough friction for deep tissue massage. In addition lotions massage can still be used for relaxation or lighter techniques. Lotions have a tendency to provide maximum glide, with superior workability, without feeling sticky. Lotions massage allow for a good grip for deep tissue, yet allows for skin lubrication and protection from friction to the skin.

What should I expect during my visit?
