Massage Therapy

History and Benefits

Massage Therapy has been a cultural practice long before it became popular in spas here in America. Its earliest records dating around 2700 B.C. Civilizations in the East and West found that natural healing and massage could heal injuries, relieve pain, and prevent and cure illnesses. Massage evolved through the years moving to India where it became a regular practice in Ayurvedic Medicine. In the 1800s the Swedish Movement System was developed in the west and is likely what most people associate "regular massage" with.

Studies have shown that massage is helpful for:

  • anxiety

  • digestive disorders

  • headaches

  • fibromyalgia

  • insomnia related to stress

  • musculoskeletal injuries

  • myofascial pain and disfunction

Among many other benefits are the increases sense of caring, comfort, and connection that comes from regular massage and touch. Touch increases the production of the feel good hormone Oxytocine which plays a role in social bonding.

What is CHABA massage?

CHABA stands for Cannabis Health And Beauty Aid.

A CHABA product is infused with either Hemp or Marijuana extracted CBD containing 0-0.3% THC. Never more than 0.3% THC.

Since there‚Äôs less than 0.3% THC, CHABA products are safe for anyone/everyone to use. It will not show up on a drug test or get you high. CHABA can be used by people of all ages, from children to the elderly and pregnant women. There are no contraindications for CHABA massage. 

Washington state is the only state that allows massage therapists to use CHABA products and this is something you can choose for your specific massage session, decreasing inflammation, and increasing relaxation.

CHABA therapy used in conjunction with deep tissue massage, movement and cupping therapy to move the CBD based oils into the tissues, increases the effects of your massage and leaving a sense of wholeness all the way down to the cellular level.
