Thread: Any Massage Therapists on Hgc Have Suggestions for Oil?

  1. #1
    I'm a massage therapist about to start this diet. I have one huge concern! I use oils daily while massaging clients. It is not an option for me to wear gloves because I use my hands, forearms, and elbows during massage. I'm wondering if there are any other therapists out there that might have a suggestion for what we can use and not completely sabatoge this diet. I saw on a hgc blog that coconut oil is supposed to be ok. Is that true? If so I have already found a source for coconut massage oil. Help! I really want to do this diet and I can't quit work to do it!

    Am curious about this as well as I am a PTA and I do massage all day-also have to use biofreeze which as camphor in it. I am still losing but I think more slowly- I am also more hungry during the week at work than the weekends. Don't know if this is d/t the creams or not.

    I am just a newbie at this, but in something that I have read said to use Jojoba oil sparingly instead of lotions.

    you can use baby oil- the one with lavender scent is not bad, and your clients will understand if you tell them it is a temporary thing. when i'm on P2 i take it with me to my massages.

    esen- i don't think the biofreeze will be too much of a problem, but it does have methylparaben in it which is a petroleum product. i generally use gloves when i use it on patients anyway. (i'm a PT)

    My Hcg clinic gave me Jojoba oil in my welcome kit. I used it the other day it does not seem to absorb and stays on top of the skin.

    Unfortunuately jojaba oil is one of those absorbable oils, so it shouldn't be used on the hcg diet. Only mineral oil in eclusive, meaning it doesn't absorb.

    I have massage lotions that I use and I use coconut and grapeseed oil. Someone said it ws ok, but then others say no...I have continued to lose this week 11.7#, and I use oils all day long(OTR). I would hate to start wearing gloves..it is just not the same.
