A body scrub is a body treatment that is basically a facial for the body: it exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving it smooth and soft. A body scrub is done with an abrasive ingredient, we use Guinot’s oil and kiwi scrub.
A body scrub is not technically a massage, however vigorous movements are used, therefore blood circulation is improved.
A body scrub usually takes place in the cubicle. The therapist may offer you disposable underwear, the leave the room. You will start face-down on a massage table that is covered with a towel, a sheet or a thin piece of plastic.
The therapist will return and start by gently rubbing the exfoliant on your back, the backs of your arms, and the backs of your legs and feet. You may be draped with a towel so only the part she is working on is exposed. Then you turn over and she does the other side.
When the therapist is finished, you usually step into a shower to rinse off. Be sure to rinse thoroughly so you don't take little granules back to the table. And don't use shower gel -- it's good to keep the oil and aromatics on your skin. The therapist may choose to remove the scrub with damp warm towels.
