The health benefits of massage therapy are hard to ignore. Indeed, a good massage could be called the epitome of relaxation. Intense relief can truly be found in receiving even one massage.

It’s also true that practitioners are always on the lookout for ways to elevate their services. When it comes to massage therapy, a great way to enhance the experience is to utilize high quality massage oils that offer the opportunity to heighten the relaxation factor that much more.

Choosing oil over lotion can provide maximum relief, hydration and safety. Oil, with its fatty acids, is easily absorbed and is naturally hydrating for the skin, while lotion contains a mixture of oil and water.

When choosing a massage medium, look for certification for the manufacturer, such as GMP-certified, ISO certified or certified organic. An organic massage oil made in a certified facility will provide assurance that you are getting quality ingredients that will nurture and heal the skin when applied.

Here are six ways to work with massage oils and increase the benefits of massage therapy.

1 Incorporate CBD

CBD is perhaps most widely recognized for its ability to support a sense of tranquility. This cannabinoid has been researched as a potential way to help people get better sleep, combat feelings of anxiety and a wealth of other benefits. CBD is a great foundation for creating an especially calming massage oil, thanks to these close ties to serenity and relaxation. Topical application allows the CBD to be absorbed into the skin so it can deliver its soothing properties. It works with the endocannabinoid system to provide localized relief wherever it is applied by interacting with the CB2 receptors in the peripheral nervous system.

A massage with a CBD massage oil delivers the perfect amount of CBD directly to aches and soreness. A high quality massage oil that includes organic CBD and soothing essential oils is the best option for a treatment that provides the ultimate in relief and relaxation. A body with less discomfort can relax so much easier, and guests will thank you for the peace of mind and relief they experience.
