The Health Benefits with Grapeseed Oil in Massage Therapy or Bodywork Appointments

*According to Healthline* and other sources, grapeseed oil has many purported physiological benefits including:

  • Premature Aging
  • Help with Dementia
  • Supports Immune System
  • Risk of Heart Disease
  • Hair Loss

Grapeseed oil used as a massage medium is also reported to be great for skin health.  Some skin conditions that may benefit from grapeseed oil during massage application might include:

  • Rashes
  • Dry Skin
  • Acne
  • Moisturize Skin
  • Lighten Skin
  • Astringent/Tighten Pores

While providing a massage medium such as oil can deliver many health benefits for your massage client, it could also feel greasy and uncomfortable, especially if the client is not showering after their massage therapy service.  Practitioners may want to wipe any excess oil from the client's skin prior to the client's massage table dismount or getting dressed, to prevent the client from staining their clothes.

Always remove all oil, lotions, mediums or gels from a client's feet prior to allowing the client to stand.  This can help ensure that the client will not slip in their shoes or on the floor when their feet are less slippery.  Using a nice hot towel is a wonderful method to remove a massage medium, plus deliver the thermal therapy benefits from the heat itself.

When using oils, they should always be stored in a cool dry dark place at room temperature – anywhere between 50-74 degrees fahrenheit to help prolong their shelf life and slow the process of an oil becoming rancid.

Whenever possible, it is best to keep oils in “tinted” amber or cobalt glass bottles. This also helps preserve an oil's shelf life when it is protected from light.
