soma silk for light-touch massage
Soma Silk Massage Creme
i tend to have a gentle, softer touch than most other therapists, so i need a lubricant that stay slippery and silky while i take several minutes to work an area. this stuff if really nice for just that. it smells neutral to me, and appears to wash nicely out of my sheets. it's a little too slippery for doing really deep work- you cannot grab the skin and pick up muscles- but i am able to do deeper work on the upper back/shoulder areas just fine- my clients seem pleased enough :)
also, it's quite thick when you first pick it up, and even warming it between your hands, but after applying it and stroking it over the skin 4 or 5 times, it warms nicely and melts into a silky, workable substance. i like it.
