Massage preparation. Masseuse pours oil into her palm before massaging the neck and shoulders of a woman. Pure vegetable or baby oil should be used as mineral and unrefined oils will clog the pores of the skin. Massage relieves muscular pain and stress by stretching hard, cramped muscles, so increasing blood flow to them. It is a very effective form of relaxation, also toning the skin and making it more supple.
