WHY WE DON’T PROVIDE CBD OIL MASSAGE
CBD oil massage has been a big topic in our industry recently. For several years I have wondered if it’s right for our business. I have always been open to adding on new therapies and products. In fact, CBD-infused oil products sell really well. Some might even say that it is a missed opportunity to not provide this service.
While I’m not questioning the benefits or the role it can play in pain relief, for now the answer is no. We do not offer CBD oil massage. With more information I might retract my position and this article.
There are a variety of reasons why I’ve decided to not make CBD massage a part of Sacramento Massage Studio. Here are a few:
I am not in private practice anymore and I have a team to consider. I do not want to put any of my employees in a position that makes them uncomfortable, whether that’s using the lotion when they don’t want to or having to tell one of our clients that they won’t.
MANUAL THERAPY VS DRUG
Our role as bodyworkers is to reduce pain, relax tension, and relieve stress. CBD-infused products may help with this, however, I don’t like the idea of masking pain before or during a massage. It would be ridiculous if we offered an Ibuprofen massage, right?
VENDORS SEEM MORE EXCITED ABOUT IT
Although we do get some requests from our clients for CBD, I can tell you we get far more requests from vendors trying to get us to offer their products to our clients. It seems like the CBD oil industry is far more excited about it than our clients.
OUR BODIES ABSORB IT TOO
While our clients might experience the CBD massage once a month or once a week if they are lucky, we are seeing anywhere from 10 and 20 clients a week. And, while side effects are rare, or unknown, we must mind our own bodies as well as our clients’.
