Our staff is so excited to present the CBD category to our spa offerings, on our service menu, and in our retail shops. This pain relieving product, that comes from enhanced hemp extract, is exploding in the wellness sector. So where does it come from?
Hemp has been hailed as the little plant that could for centuries – for making fabric, rope, sails, paper and canvas. Hemp plants require less chemical spraying than cotton, soy, corn and wheat. It can help reduce soil degradation by faring better with less water and in drier climates. Paper made from hemp could help reduce deforestation, and requires fewer chemicals for processing than wood pulp. Hemp fabric has antibacterial qualities that can help it fight staph infections in hospitals.
That’s not all. Hemp seeds and oils offer more and better proteins than soy, along with the highest percentage of essential fatty acids and the lowest percentage of saturated fats compared with other oils. The cannabinoids (CBD) in hemp can reduce inflammation and may even protect against anxiety and depression, seizures and and brain injuries, according to recent studies. (courtesy of The Guardian)
Many in the medical and wellness industries have begun seeing the amazing positive benefits of hemp extract in battling chronic pain, and relieving inflammation. This safe and natural ingredient – going by the unassuming acronym CBD – has been delivering results for our clients. We invite you to experience our CBD Massage service.
If desired, and no contraindications exist, deep tissue therapy may be added to this service for an additional $20.
The goal of this service is to reduce inflammation, alleviate chronic pain and stimulate the release of endorphins. Utilizing some trigger point therapy, accompanied by long warming massage strokes, the CBD compound – a combination of cannabidiol product, menthol, camphor and arnica – is applied and kneaded into the skin.
