Putting warm objects on top of the body begins the process of melting muscles before you start the massage.
Large, warm, dry towels heated are an easy and cozy heat source to place directly on the skin or over a sheet. Large, hot, wet towels that have been heated in a crock-pot – and well wrung out – feel exquisite on the back or chest before or during a massage. Small, warmed towels, either wet or dry, anointed with an essential oil and placed over the face, are a divine touch.
