Using hot oil through massage is an excellent way to promote comfort and sooth muscle fatigue whilst opening the pores and softening the skin. Many types of massage oil contain a couple of essential oil scents, which can be aromatherapeutic for both the masseuse as well as the recipient of this massage. Adding hot oil to any proper massage therapy can add to the experience. Hot oil can be used for all types of conventional massage, but should be avoided if other ingredients are to be introduced (i.e., a whisking massage).
Place a couple towels near the massage table in easy reach. If your customer requests a toilet break, or must take a recess throughout the session, he or she’ll probably require a towel to absorb some of the oil before exiting the space.
Heat your massage in the microwave for 1 minute on high heat. Be certain the cover of the container is available to allow the pressure a place to escape since the oil warms.
Close the container and shake the oil thoroughly, using caution not to burn off.
Examine the heat of the oil onto your wrist. It needs to be hot to the touch, but if not burn the skin. When it’s hot, but not hot, reheat the container between 15 and 30 seconds. Repeat this process until an adequate temperature is achieved. If the oil is too hot, keep on shaking the contents before a few of the heat has spread.
Proceed with your planned massage technique, employing the oil liberally throughout the session. Set the oil onto the mug warmer between applications to keep it hot for the length of the session.
