MEDI-THAI oil massage with a special oil composition
Oil massage is both relaxing and stimulating. It facilitates complete relaxation, while it also stimulates blood circulationand lymphatic circulation of the treated area and some of our organs. Stretching movements relieve muscle tension and increase the flexibility of the body and elasticity of the skin.
Practical things to know
In the case of an oily massage, undress to the underwear, the massage is done with a mild to medium intensity. Arrive on time and cleanly or – if you arrive 15 minutes early – take a shower on site in advance (there is a modest fee). On arrival, allow time for parking difficulties and calm down. After the massage, do not shower for at least two hours or even more until the evening or morning, so that the effect of Medi-Thai special oils can continue. Medi-Thai oil, unlike many other oils, is absorbed, leaving virtually no stains on the garment.
How is Medi-Thai oil different?
If you ask in an other Thai massage parlor what composition of oil is used, the response is in many cases baby oil, e.g. Johnson & Johnson. “If it’s good for the baby, it’s good for Dad,” they think. Why isn’t it good for Medi-Thai? Because Medi-Thai wants to add value in this area as well.
Affordable baby oils, such as Johnon & Johnson, are petrochemical by-products, liquid paraffins supplemented with isopropyl palmitate. Baby products are expected to be harmless to health. “The advantage of liquid paraffin (Vaseline oil) is that it is inexpensive, does not rancid, but does not replace the beneficial, eudermic (balanced) effect of vegetable oils on the skin” (Cosmetics Manual, MK, Bp. 1990, p. 110). Baby oil is no problem when cleaning your baby’s butt and is wiped off by mom or dad. In the case of an oily massage, however, a larger amount of oil gets on the skin, it is massaged into the pores by the masseus, which easily clogs. The clogging effect is enhanced by isopropyl palmitate, which can cause comedo, blackheads in adults.
According to our opinion if you take advantage of a massage, you should preferably not use a cheap petroleum product, but a vegan oil. However, Medi-Thai goes even further and uses an oil that can be practically considered a cosmetic. Medi-Thai oil is absorbed naturally into the skin, contains valuable nutrients, and preferably comes from a controlled organic farm. Medi-Thai oil massage can thus also be considered a cosmetic treatment. If you use body lotion or face cream, you obviously won’t wash it off after an hour. Medi-Thai oil can also be considered a premium body lotion, so it makes no sense to shower afterwards.

Medi-Thai premium perfume oil is available for premium massages. The basic composition is the same as premium oil. Original perfume oil is added to the premium oil or perfumed with original perfume using the Medi-Thai know-how method. The harmony of the heart scent and base scent of Medi-Thai premium perfume oil gives a more restrained, even, mysterious scent than alcoholic perfume, which, when bent close, can give our skin an irresistible appeal for hours.
The cilia in our noses transmit fragrance molecules to olfactory receptors, which transmit fragrance to the brain as an electrical impulse. These signs bypass the thalamus and go directly to the brain regions responsible for our emotions, so scents bring or evoke subconscious emotions. Although our eyes are responsible for 80% of our perception, a sight is forgotten much faster than a scent. Our nose can smell nearly a billion scents. Scents are etched into our subconscious memories. A favorite fragrance will cheer up our whole body, evoke memories from the past, and guide us into the future through the present.
Perfumes have a complex but harmonizing head notes (top notes), heart notes (middle notes) and base notes. The scent of head note evaporates quickly, its function being to mask the smell of alcohol. When buying perfume in a store, we practically decide based on that, because that’s what we feel most about. The most important part of the perfume is the heart note, after the head note quickly evaporates, we feel this scent and the perfumes are classified based on this. The ingredients of the perfume composition are harmonized by the base note, and this is what we feel for the longest time.
For all oily massages, we automatically provide Himalaya salt therapy while lying on your stomach. During the facial cutting out of the mattress, we can inhale purified air passed through a bed of Himalayan salt. Although the opening can be closed on request, it is worth taking advantage of this free salt therapy.
