Why use Jojoba for massage?

There are plenty different types of oils that a massage therapist could use.  Here at Melrose Muscle Therapy, we use Jojoba.  For those of you familiar with Jojoba, you know it is not an oil, but a liquid wax ester.

Why do we use jojoba when there are so many other oils on the market that are way cheaper to use?

 1. It doesn't spoil or go bad.  Many other oils expire.  Jojoba does not expire.  this keeps us a bit greener as we are not wasting any product.

2. Jojoba is non-allergenic.  It is perfect to use with all skin types, but especially for sensitive skin.

3. Jojoba does not stain clothing.  You can be assured that after getting a massage at Melrose Muscle Therapy, that you will not have any oily residue on your skin that could stain your clothing.  First off, we dont use that much oil to begin with, and secondly, jojoba easily washes out of any linens with water and detergent.

 4. Jojoba conditions the skin.  It is the closest thing to our natural oil.  It won't clog your pores, and you will feel silky soft instead of oily and greasy.
