Full Body Massages – Pour out 3 spoons (approx 15ml) of Tarika Body oil in a ceramic, glass or steel bowl. Heat it just a little to make the oil comfortably warm. Then, dip your fingertips in the oil and gently apply rubbing it all over the body from head to toe – face, neck, chest, stomach area, genitals, legs.(It is not necessary to use a lot of oil on any part of the body, a little oil is sufficient as the oil spreads easily. During the massage, if the skin feels rough or dry, dip the fingertips in the oil bowl and apply a little more oil as and where required.) Next, massage yourself (or if you have someone to massage you, all the better) from feet upwards, using gentle and long strokes along the veins and muscles. Massage the stomach in a clockwise motion, the spine and around should be gently massaged. Massage the back of the neck with a gentle pressure. Massage well the joints. Massages should be done gently with a light pressure to help the oil penetrate the epidermis and into the tissues and muscles.
After the massage relax for 10 to 15 minutes. Then take a warm water bath or shower and pat dry. If you are using a bath-tub pour warm water and lie down in the tub for 8 to 10 minutes. You can also follow the massages with a sauna or steam. No soap or body cleaning products should be used after the oil massage – this is likely to dilute the effects of the oil.
