Much like the massage table you choose to use, the music you play in your session room and any other tools of your trade, the massage cream you select will most

likely be a direct reflection of both your personal preferences and your chosen techniques and modalities. Landing on the right cream for your practice is often a matter of knowing your preferences well and understanding what type of lubricant tends to work best with your hands-on skill set.

One of the best ways to narrow down the products is to decide whether or not you prefer a cream that contains some kind of fragrance or no scent at all. This, of course, will be one of those personal preferences.

You may love incorporating some aspects aromatherapy into your sessions with a blend of essential oils. In this case, you would want to find a product that offers the essential oils you like to use, while also delivering the texture you need for the application of your chosen techniques and modalities.

It is important to note that a number of clients may be irritated by fragrances. Aromas can trigger adverse reactions in some people, such as sneezing or headaches. For this reason, even if your personal preference is to select a cream that is blended with essential oils, you may be wise to also keep another option on hand. This way, you will be ready and able to serve those clients who indicate sensitivity to fragrances when they fill out your intake form.

The ingredients in a product are also important to consider. Many practitioners feel it is important to use only those products that do not contain any synthetic ingredients or preservatives. Along these same lines, a massage therapist or bodyworker may also have a preference for a cream that is composed of all-natural and organic ingredients, which were collected and manufactured using methods that are environmentally-friendly.

It will be important for you to get a strong grip on what your preferences really are when it comes to choosing the massage cream you will use on a regular basis. Using a product that is in harmony with what you value and enjoy can help create a more positive practice and a more satisfying work experience.
