Massage is one of the oldest healing techniques in the world. The Ancient Greeks and Romans both used massage therapy to heal a number of health problems. Not to mention, a great massage is a recipe for a wonderful feeling of calm, peace, and tranquillity! And better still, it’s something we can do in the comfort of our own homes. All you need is a willing partner who can perform a few simple masseuse techniques. So, are you ready to elevate your home massage with a special and natural plant extract? It’s time to try a soothing CBD massage oil, and here’s why.
Benefits of a massage
A massage by itself has a number of health benefits. As mentioned, it helps to bring about an intense feeling of calm. This happens because a massage prompts the release of endorphins. These natural chemicals give us a feelgood factor as they flow about the body. But also, endorphins can interact with receptors in the brain and reduce the feeling of pain.
There is more to a massage than just the feeling of calm. There are physical benefits which include:
- Lower muscle tension
- Higher blood circulation
- Stress hormones reduce
- Faster recovery of soft tissue injuries, and more
Time for a CBD massage
Now, take all these amazing benefits and add a touch of CBD oil to the situation. CBD is one of 115 cannabinoids naturally found in the hemp plant. It interacts with an important regulating system in the body, called the Endocannabinoid System. CBD helps this system maintain harmony across the body. It also can promote a feeling of calm.
Adding CBD to your massage therapy can therefore really elevate the feeling of peace and tranquillity. The massage action also encourages CBD deep into the skin tissue, where it can offer the greatest benefits. There are skin benefits that CBD offers too, including skin conditioning and protecting.
Your new CBD massage home ritual
Step 1: have your CBD hydration ready
It’s called a ritual for a reason, and it needs to encompass the whole experience to make it really special. Take your favourite glass, add some ice, and crack open a liquid hug from Gibson’s Goodology. We suggest the Jasmine Tea & Rhubarb flavour for your zen massage experience. These lightly bubbled natural CBD beverages contain just five ingredients and taste simply amazing. Also, each can contains 25 mg of CBD. It’s the perfect drink to sip from for your incoming CBD massage.
Step 2: ask your partner for 30 minutes of undivided attention
Cash in some brownie points and ask your loved one for 30 minutes of his or her time. Turn the phones on silent, and throw him or her a quick tutorial on how to massage. Light some candles and dim the lights.
Step 3: use these CBD products to CBD-infuse your massage
If you already have a favourite massage oil, transform it with the CERIOUS Muscle Relief Serum. It contains 300 mg of CBD in the bottle, alongside a premium blend of other warming botanicals. This is a very special, 100% plant based elixir of natural relief. Simply add a dropper of the CERIOUS serum to the massage oil in the palm of your hand and knead away. Add more for extra calm.
If you don’t have a preferred massage oil, there are CBD infused options available. Try the Infinity CBD Massage Oil or Massage Bars. Both are great options with good CBD strengths. Or even check out our range of muscle balms.
Step 4: Relax, unwind, and drift off
2020 has been a tough year for everyone. Therefore, it’s important we take moments to recollect, unwind and take stock. Enjoy this CBD massage as a moment to give the mind space and stay in the present.
Put in the effort to adopt this home ritual and you will not regret it for a moment. It’s a delightful way to connect with your partner, and you will come out of it feeling completely refreshed.
