Natural & Cruelty-Free Massages
Tara strongly believes that natural and organic products should be used where possible, and that no animal should have to suffer at the hands of humans – ever. It is because of this conviction that Tara chooses to make ‘Natural & Cruelty-Free Massages’ the Tara Goulding Massage Therapy standard.
Would you want to lay on a massage towel that’s covered in chemicals? Of course not, that’s why Tara doesn’t use chemical detergent to wash her towels. Nor does she put synthetic massage oils onto your skin, or use chemical-based products for any of her cleaning. Tara only uses natural products in the running of her business, and they are also organic wherever possible. For example:
- Natural oils are used for your massage, being a blend of almond,
sunflower and vitamin E oils. Not only synthetic-free, but also
fabulously moisturising for your skin.
- All towels are washed using organic Soapnuts, the fruit of
a tree which grows in India and Nepal. The shells of the nuts
are used as they contain a precious substance called Saponin,
which has remarkable detergent properties. Soapnuts are hypoallergenic,
act as both a cleaner and a fabric softener, are biodegradable
and odour free.
- All general cleaning is done using a mixture of white vinegar and essential oils of lavender and eucalyptus, which not only cleans just as well as commercial cleaners (if not better, and certainly less smelly), but also disinfects at the same time.
Tara will never (not now, not any time in the future) use any products that are animal derived, contain animal by-products, or are tested on animals. So you can rest assured that while you are relaxing during your massage, our furry friends can also relax! This assurance includes any products used in the Tara Goulding Massage Therapy business, including:
- Massage oils
- Essential oils
- Fragrant oils
- Washing detergents
- Fabric softeners
- General surface cleaners
