Massage Lotion FAQ:
What are massage lotions?
Massage lotions are used when you would like the medium to reduce friction, but also absorb quickly. These are pumpable and are widely used across many of the more common modalities. Usually comprised of combinations of oils, the largest ingredient is usually water. This makes a massage lotion a good choice if massage laundry staining is a concern. Massage lotions provide a nice glide, but also absorb enough to provide the ability to perform deep tissue work as well.

Soothing Touch Lavender Lotion
I love Lotus Touch organic lotion and cream! I have used them in my massage practice for over 6 years and have great results when combining the lotion and cream for massages. The lotion provides great lubrication with appropriate friction and absorbs well into the client's skin without leaving a residue. Also, this lotion contains no nut oils, which is crucial when working with clients with allergies.
5 Star Customer Review by Bandie
When I had to go into therapy myself, for a back injury during massage school, the therapist who worked on me used this lotion. The scent is a wonderful relaxer, it makes the hardest therapy session end feeling like a relaxation massage. I've used this lotion ever since then. My skin is very sensitive, but I've never broken out or had my hands feel sore after using this lotion, which is impressive - I've had reactions to hypoallergenic lotions before. The glide is excellent (even for hairy clients) and two pumps last throughout my work on each body part area. However, once I'm done working with it, this lotion absorbs into the skin soon after for a less "greasy" feeling. This is my favorite product to use for massage!
