FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is massage gel?
Massage Gel is a versatile product that gives therapists the glide of an oil, but without leaving unwanted residue on the skin. Gels typically feel less heavy than other lubricants and when combined with massage, create a warm friction perfect for loosening tight muscles. Other advantages include a longer working time as gels do not absorb into the skin as quickly as creams and lotions, and with a water soluble formula, most gels are non-staining.
When should I choose massage gel?
Massage gels are best for treatments that require a lengthier glide time with less absorption. Gels are perfect for deeply targeting tight muscles with a naturally occurring heat resulting from friction during the massage. As a result, massage gels are often used to focus on a specific body part like deep tissue massage and sports massage.

How do I use facial massage gel?
Gels are a perfect lubricant for facial massage as they typically do not absorb into the skin quickly. To use gel for a facial massage, be certain to use an ample amount of product. Gently massage the face for 5 to 10 minutes. Should your hands become dry, moisten your fingertips with water to extend the treatment. After the treatment is completed, tissue off the product or rinse with water.
