Santa Barbara Massage Cream was created to fill the need for an all natural lubricant. It has all the benefits of olive oil mixed with the healing properties of essential oils. It was specifically made for deep tissue styles of massage. The cream offers a nice resistance that allows the therapist to penetrate deeply into the tissues, and its smooth and luxurious feel makes it perfect for lighter Swedish styles. Clients don't leave the session feeling oily, because only a SMALL AMOUNT of cream is needed. It truly is a revolution in massage lubrication. Real Bodywork initially created this cream to use in their Deep Tissue and Neuromuscular Therapy classes. They wanted a truly natural cream with a good resistance for deep work, and smooth glide for relaxation work. Long hours of the day were spent with cream covering their forearms, so they didn't want any chemicals seeping into the bloodstream. The belief that the simpler the better (and safer) was employed for us as therapists. Because it is thick, this cream will never spill on a client's expensive rug, and have you ever applied tons of liquid oil on a pair of hairy legs in the attempt to get some glide? Just a little SB Massage Cream creates a great glide on hairy legs. Sean Riehl, the owner of Real Bodywork, and creator of Santa Barbara Cream and his wife also discovered that our cream is great for removing tar from our feet after long beach walks. The biggest mistake people make in using this cream is that they use too much. Each 8oz jar should last for 16-20 full body massages. Each 32oz jar should last for 64-80 full body sessions.
