CBD and Massage
The endocannabinoid system regulates a variety of biological processes like relaxation, eating, sleeping, certain inflammation responses, cognitive function, and overall homeostasis. Endocannabinoids and their receptors (found on cell surfaces in the human body) are found throughout the body. The use of CBD activates these receptors.
Incorporating Cannabidol (CBD) infused muscle balm in to your session is a great way to assist in easing away pain and inflammation in the body. CBD has been found to be calming for the nervous system, pain relieving, and anti inflammatory when applied topically in massage therapy.
Applying CBD topically to joints, ligaments, and the soft tissues of the body does not have any psychoactive effects and is legal in all 50 states.
"Cannabinoids and possibly other healing components of the plant are absorbed directly through the skin; the anti-inflammatory properties are outstanding, reducing recovery time from injuries and promoting healing of lesions. Topical cannabis has also been used by my lupus patients and rheumatoid arthritis patients to increase the function of joints and decrease nodule formation.”

Prescriptions for Massage
Do you have a prescription for massage therapy?
Most car insurance claims will cover massage therapy with a prescription from your Chiropractor or Physical Therapist.
Every case is unique when is comes to billing, but the most important thing is that you take care of the soft tissues after acute trauma to the body. The body's natural splinting cycle can result in chronic pain and limited range of motion after healing if you aren't proactive with your rehab. Massage Therapy in conjunction with consistent Chiropractic care and Physical Therapy gives the body the best chance for an unrestricted and optimal healing process.
