Massages are a great way to treat yourself, unwind, and address any physical concerns or injuries. For people looking for more, a CBD massage combines all the benefits of cannabidiol and massage therapy into one relaxing treatment.
Create a setting that is conducive to deep relaxation. Turn off overhead lights, close the blinds, and light some candles. You also might want to burn some incense and play some soft music. Turn off your cell phone so there are no distractions.
Using CBD oil not only brings added benefits, but it also reduces friction for a smoother feel. Dispense a small amount of CBD oil onto your hands. Rub your hands together, then massage into the skin to help release tensions and deeply soothe muscles.
Made By Hemp’s Luxury CBD Massage Oil is hand-crafted with calming and rejuvenating herbal extracts for a premium full-body massage experience. This unique formulation is designed to soothe sore muscles, replenish nutrients in the skin, and relax the senses.
The person you’re massaging should be lying face down with their head to one side. Standing or kneeling over the other person, add the CBD oil onto your hands and massage the back using long, fluid strokes.
Then start kneading the muscles, lifting and rubbing them with your fingers and the base of your hand. From the base of the back to the shoulders, spend about 30 seconds on each section of muscles.
For the lower back, roll your knuckles up and down on either side of the spine with your hand in a loose fist, avoiding the spine itself.
Head, neck, and shoulders
Squeezing and releasing as you go, use one hand and move up the neck. Then, with both hands, move our fingers in a circular motion starting at the base of the skull down to the tops of the shoulders.
Next, use your thumbs to massage the bottom of the skull. Give extra attention to the area where the head meets the neck. After, use your fingertips to slowly massage the entire head in small circles.
Limbs, hands, and feet
Transitioning into a face up position or to a chair, use the same stroking and kneading techniques as the back to massage the muscles of the arms and legs. Be sure to avoid massaging their bones or joints, including the elbows and knees.
For the hands, start by rubbing the fingers. Move from the base of the finger to the tip and then gently pull each finger away from the hand. To massage the whole hand, use your thumbs on the palm and fingers on the back of the hand to apply pressure and move in a circular motion.
You can do the same with the feet, starting by gently pulling the toes. Next, place your thumbs on the sole of the foot and your fingers on the top of the foot and apply pressure as you move along the ball of the foot towards to the heel. After, using loose fists, use your knuckles to massage the arch of the foot.
Now you’re ready to give a nice relaxing massage. Be sure to use our CBD massage oil to ensure you get all of the added benefits.
