Want To Enhance Your Massage? It’s as Easy as CBD
A good massage is a blissful experience. If you want to enhance that wonderful feeling of well-being even more, try incorporating CBD oil into your next massage.
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It’s one of the many ingredients in cannabis, but it’s not responsible for the high that marijuana smokers get (that’s tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC). In recent years, research has shown that CBD may be helpful for various types of health conditions. There’s also been a corresponding rise in the vast number of CBD products sold in the United States, with everything from bath oils to gummy candies readily available.
At Firefly, we recently introduced CBD oil as an upgrade to our massage treatments. We’ve found that it can offer several benefits that can transform your massage experience. Among them:
For most people, it’s important to manage their stress to stay mentally and physically healthy—and massage is a great way to do that. CBD oil is thought to promote relaxation and stress relief. Studies have indicated that CBD produced antidepressant responses in animals, and may help relieve anxiety in people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or social anxiety disorder (SAD). If you’re feeling burned out and stressed, a CBD-enhanced massage may be just the thing to soothe your mind and body.
Speedy sports recovery
Whether you’re training for a triathlon or lifting weights at the gym, your active muscles need to rest and recuperate in between workouts. CBD has antiinflammatory properties, which may bring relief to overworked joints, tendons, and muscles. One study suggested that CBD oil may be helpful in reducing pain and increasing mobility—both of which can boost athletic performance. We customize every massage treatment so you can target any trouble spots.
Endocannabinoid system support
What is the endocannabinoid system? If you’re unfamiliar with it, you should know that it plays several important roles in your body, governing sleep, metabolism and appetite, memory function, fertility, mood, motor control, chronic pain, and much more. This is done through the body’s production of endocannabinoids, which attach to receptors in the nervous system in order to ease pain and inflammation, among other functions. It’s believed that a healthy endocannabinoid system keeps the body in a state of balance called homeostasis. It’s thought that CBD helps cannabinoids carry out their many jobs, although researchers are still investigating how that connection works.
CBD is one of the hot trends in the personal care industry—the international market for CBD-infused skin care is projected to be almost $3.5 billion by 2026. That’s because CBD’s antiinflammatory agents are thought to reduce redness and help skin conditions caused by irritation, such as psoriasis and eczema. CBD also has the potential to hydrate dry skin.
At Firefly, we offer CBD oil as a massage upgrade for only $20 for members, or $25 for nonmembers. It’s an ideal way to see and feel the benefits CBD can have on your body. Contact us today to learn more about all of our massage treatment options and to book your session.
