CBD Massages to Combat Stress
The holidays are a joyous, exciting and loving time to be with family and express gratitude for all the small but meaningful things in our lives. But lets face it, as much as we try to slow the pace, managing family, gifts, work and holiday parties can wear you down.
That is why this season I decided to give my aching body some TLC with CBD.
My CBD Massage and Cupping Experience.
I found Integrative Muscular Rehab in Las Vegas on instagram by accident. I noticed a post offering a FREE CBD massage upgrade to their Cupping session for the holidays. I have always wanted to try cupping and I am already a devoted CBD topical user for localized aches and pains so I was quick to book and appt.
When CBD is incorporated into massage therapy the results can be more intense. CBD is non–psychoactive, it reduces inflammation, promotes relaxation and speeds up the healing process. Cupping is a traditional healing practice using suction. The idea is that this suction helps create healthier fascia, which translates into more flexibility and better muscle recovery. It also is said improve both blood and energy flow.
My appt. was with Roxanne and after a quick overview of where I was experiencing pain and letting her know I wanted a deep tissue massage we got started.
First she loosened up my back muscles using traditional massage and the Apothecanna Extra strength CBD body lotion, then she applied a single cup and proceeded to move it up and down one side of my back essentially lifting the skin, underlying tight tissue and muscles away from the skeletal system. This was a new and not entirely painless sensation, but the pain was temporary.
She then proceeded to apply the cups to one side of my back and massage the other using the CBD body cream. Some places use fire to create heat for the suction but IMR uses a special mechanism that sucks the air out of the cups. There were definitely some areas that were slightly more painful which I can only assume was because I was very tight in that area but, within minutes and with the use of the CBD lotion the irritation turned to a slightly pleasant numbness.
The procedure was repeated on the other side of my back and two large cups of water and 60 minutes later I was able to move without the tightness and discomfort that had been plaguing me for weeks.
Disclaimer. I was lightheaded after the massage. Normally cupping will not make you dizzy and the CBD will not get you high but, the combination of cupping, and a deep tissue CBD massage will make you a little lightheaded.
