Benefits of CBD massage
Gaia Guru’s full spectrum CBD products, massaged into the skin
Massage motions aid muscle recovery by increasing blood flow, reducing inflammation and soreness
Added pressure to treat particularly tense areas
The Gaia Guru CBD massage is a perfect treatment for releasing tension, alleviating aches and soreness, working out knots and aiding muscle recovery.
During your treatment
Your therapist will perform a full-body massage, working Gaia Guru CBD massage oil into the skin with powerful massage techniques that boost blood flow to your muscles. Let them know about any stubborn knots or areas you'd like them to focus on where they'll apply Gaia Guru’s more concentrated CBD balm.
If you'd like a more relaxing rather than targeted treatment, let your therapist know so they can adapt the pressure and techniques used.
More info on CBD massage
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over 100 plant compounds called cannabinoids that come from cannabis.
Unlike THC, which is the cannabinoid that produces a high, CBD is largely non-psychoactive and therefore does not induce a high.
In Gaia Guru’s products, CBD oil is combined in concentrations set by UK and EU legislation, in all-natural, cruelty-free formulations.
CBD massages can help to relieve muscle pain and discomfort from tension and knots. They’re a great way to de-stress.
No, it's probably not the treatment for you if:
You’re allergic to CBD/cannabinoid products.
You’re pregnant – Once you’re past your first trimester, check out our specialist pregnancy massage for a treatment tailored to your needs.
You’re after something more uplifting and reinvigorating – try our energising massage instead.
You’re not a fan of strong pressure in your massages – an Urban classic might be a better fit.
Although CBD is non-psychoactive, a CBD massage can definitely help relieve some stress and anxiety, simply by calming your nervous system and bringing you to a more relaxed state.
Yes, it’s completely legal to own and use CBD oil in the UK, as long as it doesn’t contain THC, which is a controlled substance in the UK.
No – CBD oil, like all other CBD products, contains no THC, which is the psychoactive chemical found in cannabis.
In this treatment, no CBD is ingested – Gaia Guru's CBD massage oil is applied to the skin.
Gaia Guru test their products carefully for THC content in line with UK and EU legislation. Their reports show THC levels do not exceed the set limit of 0.2%.
Gaia Guru also closely monitor the CBD content of their products for transparency. They’re proud to be able to claim that there is 1% CBD per 100ml bottle of massage oil, which translates to 1000mg total CBD. In their balms, CBD content is 1.6% for every 60ml, which translates to 1000mg total CBD.
All lab tests can be found on the Gaia Guru website.
To keep you and your therapist safe, it’s important to hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease. Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.
If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, consult your GP for advice beforehand.
