It’s really no secret that life in 2021 can, at times, be incredibly stressful. Juggling work, family, friends, and the million and one other things we have to fit into each 24 period can leave us feeling tense, anxious, and seriously stressed. As a result, our bodies become tired out, our muscles tense up causing lasting discomfort, and sometimes, we even experience physical pain.
Now, we all know that massage is a great way to carve out some ‘me’ time to unwind and re-charge our batteries. That said, there’s a seemingly endless list of options available when it comes to choosing the treatment we book in for.
To make life easier and help you get to that restful state a little quicker, let us make a recommendation. CBD Massage. Whether you’re in search of pain relief or you simply want to comfort and heal overworked muscles, this massage is a great way to go.
What is CBD?
In case you’re wondering what makes the difference between this and regular massage, it’s CBD oil. If you’re now wondering what CBD oil is, we can help with that too!
Firstly, CBD stands for Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is the second most prominent of the active ingredients found in cannabis, though it is non-psychoactive.
To get cannabidiol, an extraction process takes oil directly from the cannabis plant and uses it to create CBD-infused massage oils alongside many other CDB products. All of which can help reduce stress and, in many cases, alleviate pain.
What Is CBD Massage?
Like many other forms of deep tissue massage, CBD massage works to relieve muscle tightness and tension, alleviate stress, and promote pain relief.
The reason so many of us are turning to a CBD massage experience directly is thanks to its extra special healing properties. These can not only benefit our immune system but also positively engage our parasympathetic nervous system. Doing this helps to safely slow down our heart rates, thereby increasing the flow of oxygen around the body.
When this happens, the biological chemicals that our bodies release naturally when we’re agitated or stressed (such as epinephrine and norepinephrine) begin to decrease. Though we need these chemicals in small amounts to engage a suitable ‘fight or flight’ response in certain situations, too much can cause a damaging, inflammatory reaction.
Reducing these chemicals through the effects of CBD massage therapy, therefore, allows our minds and bodies to truly relax. To heal themselves and promote a more restful existence overall.
What Are The Benefits Of CBD Massage?
Aside from those benefits we’ve already covered above, CBD massage is highly recommended for those with anxiety, continually achy muscles, and joints, as well as clients with chronic pain in certain areas of the body.
Due to its natural anti-inflammatory properties, the CBD oil used by your massage therapist will have excellent pain-relieving qualities. Encouraging the body to speed up the healing process, CBD massage is a must if you find yourself in constant pain following an injury or you just have generally poor circulation or joint pain.
Therefore, if there’s a certain area of concern you have, your massage therapist can concentrate their kneading technique combined with CBD oil there to provide almost immediate relief.
What’s more, decreasing stress levels also lead to benefits for anti-anxiety. If you find yourself struggling with this in your daily life, or even just occasionally, CBD massage comes highly recommended.
CBD Massage For Injuries
Many of us have experienced injuries in our lifetimes, and for some, the pain, unfortunately, lasts longer than expected. If you’re feeling long-lasting effects of a past injury and are searching for the ultimate way to heal and experience some relief in a holistic way, a CBD Lotion Spa Hour here at the Anushka Spa and Salon will be more than worth your time.
Through our gold standard massage therapy treatment combined with a luxurious mix of CBD lotions and oils, you’ll experience deep relaxation, deep muscle, and fascia release, as well as excellent skin hydration.
Before And After Your CBD Massage
If you’re wondering how to prepare for a CBD massage, our advice couldn’t be simpler. Do nothing.
Come prepared for your appointment as you would any other massage treatment, just be ready to feel even more relaxed with a whole new level of stress relief, muscle relaxation, and anxiety melting results.
Once your massage is over, we recommend, where possible, taking the rest of the day to remain relaxed and keep your oils intact. Don’t hop straight in the shower, allow the products used to remain on your skin and work their magic for the rest of the day. Trust us, you’ll feel calmer, more balanced, and ready for a restful sleep if you keep the tranquil energy of your massage going after you leave the salon.
