Massages are a great way to offer yourself some self love and care, relax after a long week of work, and work out those everyday aches and pains. Massages offer stress relief, improve circulation, reduce pain, flush out toxins, and much more. How about adding to those benefits by introducing a CBD infused massage into the mix? I had the opportunity to try out Hand & Stone Massage’s CBD massage and it was amazing!

CBD Infused Massage
CBD has continued to rise in interest across the U.S. as more people are beginning to recognize the benefits of plant based wellness. The CBD market is projected to reach $20 billion by 2024. By listening to consumer’s wants and needs Hand & Stone recently introduced CBD infused massages into their offerings. As a plant wellness advocate I was eager to try out this service. Having experienced other THC/CBD infused massages and a daily user of infused salves I was eager to try out Hand & Stone.
My massage took place at Hand & Stone Massage in Littleton, CO. The atmosphere of the spa is very soothing and tranquil, while being very clean and professional. The staff members were very knowledgable about their offerings answering any questions patrons had about the services. The therapist made you feel at ease providing background information on the CBD massage oil and how it will add to the massage offering.
The massage I experienced at Hand & Stone was one of the more top notch experiences I’ve had. The massage therapist was very knowledgable about the CBD oil and the massage was very in-depth. They utilized techniques that kept my mind from focusing on what their were doing and really allowed me to relax into the present moment. I left feeling nourished, moisturized, and refreshed. My muscles thanked me for days to come!

The Lit & Lucid Podcast recently sat down with Spa Manager, Mark of Englewood Hand & Stone Massage who shared with us that all massage therapists went through an in-depth CBD educational course before offering CBD massages to patrons. This is very important for the therapists to have a background knowledge on the Endocannabonoid System and how CBD affects the body.
One of the main reasons to include CBD into your massage is to reduce inflammation and pain. The CBD absorbs into the skin combining with the CB2 receptors in your body. It’s important to note that H&S also offers 0.0% THC massages for those who are worried about the effects of THC. However, in order for CBD to be most effective combining the full-spectrum plant medicine of 0.3% THC is recommended due to the Entourage Effect.
Mark noted that many users are feeling a greater sense of relaxation during their massage, as well as continuing to stay relaxed and less tense after the massage. Therapists are even reaping the benefits as their hands and arms are becoming less sore after offering a CBD massage as the oil is also absorbing into their own skin during the massage.
