buying massage oil

Hey everyone! I graduated in December, I have been working in a chiropractors office and i am starting to pick up some clientel for side jobs on weekends and things. I need to buy oil though. I was wondering what people would recommend because i am completly lost!  When i was in school all we ever used was almond oil....but theres so many out there, i dont know whats the best to use. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Anything that most of your clients perfer?

I guess it helps to know what i am looking for. I would like to use an oil that is good for the clients skin, and wont clog pores. I dont know if the oil in my class was bad, but it made most of the people in my class breakout so i am kind of timid to buy the almond oil if it is going to cause my clients to breakout.

Thanks in advance! :)

FOR MANY THERAPISTS, USING THE WRONG TYPES OF MASSAGE OILS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS.Collapse )
The skin is the largest organ of the body and functions much like the lungs--it breathes and absorbs. Studies show that as much as 60 percent of chemicals that touch the skin are absorbed, and must then be processed by the liver.6 Friction caused by rubbing or massaging the skin causes the surface temperature to rise and the pores to enlarge, thereby allowing the creams, lotions and oils to enter the body. Daily long-term use of man-made chemicals found in many massage oils can accumulate in the fatty tissues of our body and affect vital organ systems if used over a long period of time on a regular basis.

Curious about oils...

I am just curious, what massage oil/lotion do you prefer to use?

I have to say that I love the Bio Tone Advanced Therapy Gel. :) It goes on easily, doesn't soak in too fast, doesn't feel too greasy and a little bit goes a long way. Plus it's unscented. :D What about you?
