The smell of a massage is a common annoyance.
It can even be one of the reasons people stop.
The best way to avoid this is to be aware of the potential hazards of massaging, said Deborah Fink, an assistant professor of preventive medicine at Duke University.
She and colleagues conducted a series of studies on the issue, using a variety of products.
“One of the things that we did was look at how we might eliminate the potential of irritation, which is not a very common thing in the marketplace,” she said.
“What we found was that many people who were very aware of their exposure to the smell of massage oil would not use it, and people who had no experience with massages would not buy it.”
What you need to know about the coronavirus A closer look at the symptoms of coronavillosis.
What you’re seeing are symptoms of the disease, but what you’re really seeing is the illness itself, Fink said.
In the past, the main symptoms of a coronaviral infection were fever, cough and sore throat.
But with the introduction of new coronaviruses, symptoms are becoming more common.
The virus causes fever, rash and sore throats, which are the most common symptoms in adults.
But the disease is usually milder in younger people and can be managed with rest and fluids, Finks said.
The study included samples of products marketed to women and men, as well as products marketed for people over 65 and older.
The researchers focused on products marketed as massage oil and the other treatments marketed to people under 65, who are less likely to be exposed to the virus.
The products were distributed to 6,000 people who filled out questionnaires.
For each product, the researchers looked for information about its packaging and labeling, the products’ ingredient list and how often they were sold.
The information was collected from companies’ websites and online advertisements.
“The goal was to make sure that we were looking at the people who would actually buy these products,” Fink told CNN.
“We wanted to make it as accurate as possible.”
The researchers analyzed how often each product was sold.
They found that the majority of people who purchased a massager or massage oil reported they used it often.
People who used the product less often were less likely than people who used it more often to use it.
Fink and her colleagues also found that consumers who bought a massaged product were more likely to use other products, including soap, shampoo and conditioner, in their daily lives, as compared to those who did not.
“I think we found something interesting about the way that massages and other treatments are perceived by people who have never used them,” Finks told CNN, adding that it’s likely that the product may be used for a variety to avoid having to purchase more.
“So if you’ve never used a massaging pad, you might have heard a lot about it being a ‘safe’ product,” she added.
“But if you have ever used a massage or massage oil, you’re probably very aware that you’re getting a lot of things in it.”
The authors also looked at how the products differed between genders.
“Men tend to use more massages than women, but women are more likely than men to use less massages,” Fisk said.
And when it comes to the treatments used, women were more inclined to buy products that are more popular with men, such as cream, toners, body scrubs and lotions.
Fisk noted that the results also suggested that people who bought products marketed specifically to men may have lower awareness of the risks associated with massaging.
The authors said the results of their study are preliminary and need to be replicated, but it does raise important questions about the potential for consumers to underestimate the risks of massages.
For example, while massages are a popular part of the men’s grooming ritual, the same treatments can be found for women, Fisk told CNN and is not recommended for women who are at increased risk of the virus or are taking certain medications.
“People are generally more sensitive to the effects of the products they are using,” Fick said.
So what do you do if you are worried about your exposure?
Fink recommends taking measures to reduce the risk.
“If you’ve ever had an accident and you can’t get out of the car and you’re still in the car, then you need not fear for your safety,” she advised.
“Take your own precautions and avoid massages altogether.”
Fink also suggests people avoid buying products with fragrance and/or mineral oil in them.
These products contain preservatives and may not be safe for all people, Fick noted.
“You need to make your own decisions about what you are buying,” she explained.
“In the end, you need the information that you have to make that choice.”
