The method of massage is as important as choosing the right massage oil. Do not forget to tell your
massage therapist what you are looking for and what are the body parts that you want him or her to
emphasize upon. The massage should be done in a circular motion on the desired area with the right
amount of pressure to get good results. Once this is done, rinse with soap and warm water. Try to
avoid the contact of these oils with your eyes.
