Q: Why should I use Prossage™ Warming Massage Oil?
A: Prossage™ Warming Massage Oil lets you work soft tissue in ways you cannot achieve with a cream or oil. We know that accurate and effective soft tissue work can be difficult and painful. Prossage™ Warming Massage Oil makes it easier to hook the deep fascia allowing the professional to work faster and more efficiently. Heating the tissues calms hyperexcited thermoreceptors and reduces spasms in muscles, ligaments and joint capsules. The controlled glide makes deep tissue work easier and less painful. Your patients will love Prossage™ Warming Massage Oil’s benefits long after leaving your office.
Q: How does Prossage™ Warming Massage Oil work?
A: Put a drop or two of Prossage™ Warming Massage Oil in your hand and rub hands together vigorously. The combination of the Prossage™ Warming Massage Oil and the palmer friction to the area being worked will increase the warmth and blood flow resulting in an increase of oxygen to the area. It is important to release the connective tissues or fascia surrounding tight muscle groups, nerves and blood vessels leading to the hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows, wrists and neck. Soft tissue release can be deeper and faster. The result is more available blood and oxygen to the vascular structures, relaxing the muscles that attach to tendons at each joint can reduce or completely eliminate trigger points, myofascial pain, tendonitis, and degeneration of cartilage at each joint, resulting in reduction of progressive joint arthritis.
Q: How do I apply Prossage™ Warming Massage Oil?
A: Prossage™ Warming Massage Oil is unique because you only need a small amount to effectively work an area. Put a drop or two of Prossage™Warming Massage Oil in your hand. Rub your hands together vigorously then begin working the area.
