These are massage products I use in my own massage practice, and highly recommend. They are all made in small, home based businesses by women involved in one way or another with the healing arts.
I love the way Buddha Blends Body Therapy Cream feels! I highly recommend this cream for anyone giving deep tissue massage.
Buddha Blends Body Therapy Cream was originally formulated for use in giving Mana Lomi® massage, and it is the primary massage lubricant that I use. I love this cream because of its wonderful ability to allow both glide and drag which facilitates the deep yet gentle, bone deep Mana Lomi ® massage that I offer. Read more.
A few years ago I received a free sample package of Grace Harbor Farms MSM pain relief cream. Preparing to dance in a hula performance one day I felt my shoulder aching. Without giving it much thought and certainly not expecting a miracle, I quickly smeared the MSM cream sample all over my shoulder just before going on stage. When I returned to the dressing room after the performance I realized with amazement that my shoulder had been pain free and had moved smoothly the entire time I was on stage, and it was still pain free. WOW! Being pain free leads to graceful dancing! YEAH!! Read more.
A Thumbby is a hand held
massage tool made of silicone which I use for
self care, and which I recommend to students in my Mana Lomi®
classes. The bottom of the cone shaped Thumbby
sticks to many wall surfaces including wood, wallboard and
refridgerators. My favorite way to use
theThumbby is to stick it onto a wall and then lean my
backside into it in order to apply simple compressions and/or
compression-traction around my sacrum and
tailbone and also around my shoulder blades.
In this way I explore and release my own
tissues in a way quite similar to the way I use advanced Mana Lomi®
techniques to release restrictions in other peoples tissues. The
Thumbby allows me to give myself much more specific compressions than I
am able to do with a tennis ball.
