Which reflexology medium do you favour and why?
I’ve got a range of favourites at the moment and I vary them depending on the client’s skin condition and preferences.
One new cream that I’m currently trialling with clients is Tony Porter Organic foot & hand cream.
It’s labelled as a Foot and Hand Cream and contains organic cocoa butter, wild rosemary and lavender oil. It’s paraben and petrochemical free and hasn’t been tested on animals.
The cream has been created by internationally known reflexologist Tony Porter and is designed with reflexologist in mind. The packaging is simple but effective. It comes in a pump bottle which needs to be primed before use. According to the literature the cream remains fresh within a vacuum environment (once primed) for up to 30 months after opening.
This last feature is a great selling point for the mobile reflexologist who is perhaps not seeing so many clients as her spa based counterpart. It’s also good not to have to fiddle with spatulas to remove product hygienically from jars and is reassuring for clients.
The cream has a luxurious feel and a fresh herbal smell as might be expected with the ingredients and has distinctive lavender overtones which linger.
The cream is absorbed by the client skin but it leaves enough slip due to oil content in the cream to last a treatment. I rarely find I need to apply more product during a session although this does depend on the client’s skin.
It is a bit on the expensive side retailing at £19.95 (UK). However the long product life and the vacuum packaging make this worth every penny.
I’m happy to give this cream a place in my carry bag.
Bye for now
