What is your activity of predilection when you want to unwind and relax? Some people like to watch a good movie with snacks, others will love an afternoon nap or just taking part in their favorite activities.
Although there is a specific type of activity, like massage, facial, or a warm bath, that we can all agree on are very relaxing. These last activities are common services you can find in a spa.
These institutions are the masters of relaxation. Everything in a spa is thought to make you feel in peace. The sounds, the colors, the smells, and of course the services they offer are all in line with feelings of appeasement and relaxation.
Some spas are now offering a way to reach new levels of alleviation. Simply adding CBD to these already relaxing activities can help you have even better rest and results after your special treatment at the spa.
Nothing relaxes more than a good massage. The first written records we found about massages dates from around 3000 BC in India, but they are believed to be common practices from early as 5000 BC. Hindus used massages as a healing practice.
The art of massage has been passed down through generations in India, and mixt with many other cultures, to end up with the different types of massages we have access to, today, like hot stone massage, aromatherapy massage, deep tissue massage, sport massage, trigger point massage, reflexology and so many more.
All the different types of massages have different purposes. Although, in general, massages are administered to improve the flow of blood and lymph (fluid from the lymph glands, part of the immune system) in order to reduce muscular stress, stimulate the nervous system and fasten the healing process of tissues.
Masseuses will use oils to work the muscles better and will choose specific essential oil to stimulate relaxation and appeasement.
You can now add CBD to the massage oil for even better results. This way of administering CBD is very efficient because the compound doesn't have to go through the liver before being released in the immune system. It will be absorbed directly by the skin.
The CBD compound could help reduce pain and inflammation of the muscles and articulation. It is recommended for people suffering from arthritis, fractures/ sports injuries, muscle overwork, neurologic trouble or stress.
Some new researches are even exploring its benefits on inflammation at the gastrointestinal level. This means CBD could be profitable for people dealing with Crohn or colitis disease.
More and more spas are offering this new service across the country. With a small additional charge, you can try a CBD massage and feel the difference for your self.
All kinds of CBD skincare are already on the market, from anti-acne to anti-aging, CBD is believed to be helpful for a plethora of skin issues.
We must keep in mind two things: CBD is a wonderful potential as anti-inflammatory and is could be a powerful "helper" for our immune system to rebalance itself.
Therefore, it is good for acne-prone skin. It could help reduce the inflammation and rebalance the amount of sebum the skin produces.
It iscan possibly give amazing results when combined with sensitive skin. It can potentially procures relief and comfort for any kind of irritated skin.
Finally, it is also likely to be a good thing to add to an anti-aging routine because of all the antioxidants it holds. CBD could help diminish visible wrinkles, improve skin dullness and even the skin tone.
It is not surprising to see it being introduced in facial routines in specialties spa across the country.
Cannabis is definitely a remarkable plant. With its multitude of uses, it is fair to wonder how we survived without it for so long. Its time to reexplore its benefits for our health and our well-being.
