To celebrate entering the new year, we sent our favourite writer and EthicaCBD community ambassador, Claire Ray, to discover the wonders of a CBD Spa Experience and report on her findings….
“As a freelance writer (and busy mum of two), I seldom get to leave the four walls of my home office during working hours, so it was with a certain air of naughtiness and excitement that I left my desk to go and experience a full body CBD massage and facial with the talented Jess Walton at WaveTherapy Massage and Beauty.
I am the first to admit that I am useless at finding any “me” time and I find it hard to switch off, so walking into the warm and welcoming glow of Jess’ home studio was exactly what my body and mind craved after the busy whirl of Christmas.
Jess is a supremely talented spa therapist who specialises in bespoke massage and luxury body treatments. She has been a therapist for almost twenty years, the past five of which she has been at the Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth luxury collection of holiday homes and hotels on the North coast of Cornwall. As the spa therapist of choice for high-flying, well-heeled visitors to Cornwall, I knew that having a treatment with Jess meant I was in for a real treat.
A CBD Spa Treatment For all the Senses
Jess first invited me to sit and have my feet soaked in an aromatic bowl of warm water as we spoke about any aches and pains I had, working out how to tailor the CBD massage to meet my needs. She gave me a pot of warming CBD tea to enjoy, with some CBD chocolate drops alongside – both delicious. I exhaled deeply and felt all my senses melt into deep relaxation mode before the treatment had even properly begun…
Lying on the heated bed under a cloudsoft blanket, I savoured the aroma of the warm CBD massage oil as I felt Jess set to work on my body with a massage skill quite beyond any I had experienced before. Her touch was deft, intuitive and supremely restorative. She was highly-skilled in finding each and every muscular knot, releasing the tension with a combination of sweeping movements and deep therapeutic massage. Whether it was the instant restorative effect of the CBD oil used topically on my skin, the oil’s delicious scent and natural feeling of rejuvenating warmth (or a combination of all these things!) I felt more relaxed than I ever had during past massages.
A Bespoke Therapeutic CBD Massage
My shoulders were often stiff from lifting heavy rocks during my bi-weekly workouts with my beach boot camp crew and my back always holds a million knots from sitting hunched in front of a computer all day so Jess focused on these areas. The full-body nature of the ‘full CBD treatment’ meant that my feet, legs, arms, face and scalp all experienced some of the magic too. Using deep tissue, hot stones and therapeutic techniques, Jess delivered the best full body massage I have ever had, followed by an incredible CBD facial which left my skin glowing with radiance.
How Does CBD Enhance a Massage?
When it comes to getting a CBD massage, the whole point is to reach peak relaxation. In today’s world, the best treatments work on both body and mind. Looking at well-being from a holistic viewpoint is the forward-thinking practice favoured by the very best wellness practitioners in their field, and an approach which elevates the experience for the lucky recipient of such treatment.
I was already a convert using the CBD night cream and CBD-infused skin scrub daily, but using it on my face during a professional facial treatment took it up a level and made my skin feel the softest it had in years. CBD cream provides natural plant-based nourishment, moisturisation and it is deeply soothing, returning your skin to a healthier and more radiant natural state. Along with this, Jess said regular CBD facials can boost collagen production, target dark circles and fine lines. I found that a therapeutic face and scalp massage was the jewel in the crown for relaxation levels, and I nearly drifted off into a blissful reverie.
I was surprised at just how quickly the 90 minutes had gone by and how the tension in both my shoulders and mind seemed to have all but melted away. I floated out of Jess’ studio in a hazy cloud feeling inexplicably calm and relaxed, wondering how I ever got through the week without experiencing a CBD massage before.
If you have the opportunity to incorporate CBD oil into your body massage or facial treatment, I highly recommend it. It adds another level of relaxation to your spa treatment and you’ll emerge more blissed out, chilled and relaxed than ever before. As a very busy person who seldom unwinds, I heartily attest and can’t wait to book my next one!”
