There’s absolutely nothing better than a massage. When professionally done, a good massage can leave you feeling more relaxed, more flexible, and far less stressed. From Swedish to sports to deep tissue massages,  different techniques can bring different results. At Georgetown Massage and Bodywork, we offer several types of massages with several add-ons and enhancements available, including the use of CBD oil. Here are some of the benefits of getting a CBD massage.

What Is It?

CBD stands for cannabidiol and is derived from cannabis. Let’s clear up one thing right now—CBD won’t get you high. The high associated with cannabis is caused by a separate cannabis compound, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD turns up in several products, including massage oils, creams, lotions, and edibles. Some users report that CBD taken orally can ease anxiety and relieve symptoms of insomnia. As a topical, CBD is useful for reducing inflammation, tension, and pain.

How a Massage Can Help

When combined with CBD oil, a professional massage can help reduce pain, increase relaxation, work away soreness, improve circulation, lower your heart rate and blood pressure, and leave you feeling livelier and more focused. Some studies have shown that massages can also help with recuperating from sports injuries, headaches, anxiety, back pain, and other conditions. A good massage also addresses the very human need for attention, support, reassurance, and physical touch.

Do You Need To Prepare in Any Way?

Not at all! A massage session using CBD oil is only different from a regular therapeutic massage in its use of CBD. Just take it easy, relax, and leave the process to your licensed massage therapist. Naturally, feel free to discuss what you hope to achieve with the massage, particular points of pain, medical conditions, and health concerns with your massage therapist.
