Interview #1 with Allissa Haines of ABMP Podcast

What would you say is the #1 reason you use HobaCare in your practice?

It’s simple and eliminates fear. Once you learn how much of the product to use (way, WAY less than you think) it’s all a no-brainer. Non-allergenic, nut-free, and great for sensitive skin means I don’t have worry about harming a client inadvertently.

Jojoba Oil For Gua Sha Massage

A lot of my clients have sensitive skin. Other massage mediums I have tried with a variety of added ingredients tend to be irritating.  I always go back to jojoba oil for gua sha for this reason.  I like something plain and simple.  HobaCare Jojoba oil provides the perfect slip and it actually calms the skin.  Clients often say they like the smell!

Jojoba Oil as a Massage Medium, a Great Interview

What I explain to my clients about jojoba when they ask “what is it?” is that it’s a seed extract and I let them know its non-toxic, it’s non-allergenic, I use it safely on myself and I use it safely on clients that have sensitive skin, auto immune disorders, pregnancy – anyone who is highly conscious of what goes onto their skin, as everyone should be.

100% Jojoba Massage Oil – A Naturally Superior Product

Probably the best reason I know of for choosing 100% Jojoba Massage Oil is for the way it feels. There are so many reasons that I use the product, but for me the bottom line is how it works for massage. I like the sheerness of the product, meaning, I get a really good feel for the tissues beneath my fingers. I feel that I can easily regulate how much glide or friction I can achieve. With oncology massage, it’s a lot about the glide, but not a light and tickly touch. There needs to be full contact with a gentle, smooth glide, and I can get that using jojoba.
