Why Everyone is talking about CBD Massage

As a massage therapist I have become well aware of the plethora of wellness benefits attached to the ingredient, many of my patients have seen great results from using CBD. I must confess, in spite of all the information and testimonials, I haven’t really used it consistently myself.

As I got to thinking, however, that might be a miss on my part. After all, the cannabis plant’s non-psychoactive component is known to combat inflammation, bust stress, combat insomnia, and has a wellness resume that’s roughly a mile long. So I decided to try it for myself. And I was amazed at the results! I have not even needed taken even an since incorporating CBD into my massage.

While massage is a already science-backed way to help workout soreness, I was intrigued by what CBD adds to the experience. CBD coupled with massage can ease tension, and reduce inflammation.

Shirley Chi, MD a California-based dermatologist offers a theory as to why CBD massage is so beneficial: “European studies show that topical CBD decreased inflammation and pain, while avoiding the negative side effects associated with taking it orally, such as stomach upset or lowered absorption,” says “So I’m all for a CBD massage for sore muscles.”

Remember the last time you had a deeply nourishing massage? When time stood still and your body got to take a long, deep exhale? We all know that massages and stretching are good for us. The wear and tear of daily life means we get tight, our range of motion is often impeded, and sometimes we’re just straight up stressed!

But did you know that adding CBD , with its relaxing, restorative, and pain relieving properties, makes it the perfect complement to a massage?

Massage with a high-quality CBD cream doesn’t just feel good for your tired body, it helps you reach peak performance.

How? By improving your range of motion and posture, accelerating muscle recovery, reducing pain and inflammation, increasing longevity and basically just chilling you out!

Here are five surprising benefits of enlisting CBD’s help to soothe your problem areas:

  1. Reduces Muscle Pain and Stiffness
    CBD fights inflammation in muscles by activating the pathways of existing cannabinoid (CB2) receptors in the body and then reducing soreness and stiffness.
  2. Enhances Relaxation
    When we feel out of balance or in pain, it can be hard to relax. Because CBD works directly at the site of irritated nerve receptors, it desensitizes pain, allowing the body to relax instead of spasm.
  3. Musculoskeletal and Joint Pain Relief
    CBD is a highly-targeted approach to pain relief because of the way it works as a lock and key system with the human body. Injuries to joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves all respond well to CBD massage.
  4. Boosts Sensory Stimulation
    CBD leaves you feeling relaxed and alert (as opposed to groggy or high). This is because it’s been found to positively affect receptors in the body that control serotonin levels, which in turn reduces stress, lowers anxiety levels, and boosts your mood.
  5. World’s Best Moisturizer
    CBD offers the additional benefit of soft and supple skin. Hemp oil is extremely moisturizing, conditioning, and protects the skin.
