For most people, a massage once a month helps prevent muscle tension from building up to a painful level. Think of it as general maintenance, like an oil change for your car.
Those with repetitive motions at work including long hours sitting and typing or adventurous weekend warriors may find that massage every two weeks is more effective in keeping their bodies in proper alignment. Those with chronic pain or injuries can recover more quickly with weekly bodywork. Ask your doctor and massage therapist for their recommendation.
We keep the focus where it should be: an outstanding massage. Our massage therapists are best known for Therapeutic and Deep Tissue Bodywork that reduces pain and rejuvenates clients. Other massage studios and spas may offer more bells and whistles, but our goal is to provide quality, affordable massage for everyone.
Here at LoDo Massage, we consistently see clients leave our studio in less pain than when they came in. CBD lotion is a wonderful addition to the bodywork our knowledgeable massage therapists provide. Massage can help relieve low back pain, strain from a hard workout, and reduce the side effects of cancer.
Massage is not intended to replace medical care but works very well to supplement your physician's treatment plan. Our team is dedicated to helping people move out of pain and live full, healthy lives.
CBD, or cannabidiol is a type of chemical compound found in cannabis and hemp that is thought to interact with receptors in your brain and immune system to help with a number of issues including pain management. Researchers believe CBD attaches to receptors that respond to pain and helps by signaling to reduce inflammation and decrease pain. Some believe cannabidiols help our body use the endocannabinoids already in our bodies more effectively, and influences important functions like proper sleep regulation, immune responses, and pain.
While more rigorous, larger-scale research is necessary for conclusive findings, there are many first-hand accounts of the benefits of CBD-infused products. There are far less potential side effects from CBD compared to pharmaceutical pain medications, especially when used as a topical, like with a CBD lotion.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound and CBD lotion will not give you any type of "high". THC or tetrahydrocannabinol are the group of compounds found in cannabis that produce psychoactive effects that can alter a “person's memory, pleasure, movements, thinking, concentration, coordination, and sensory and time perception," according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
We do not sell Apothecanna products in our studios. However, Apothecanna lotion is available for purchase in many recreational dispensaries, including two Euflora dispensaries at 4305 Brighton Blvd. or 403 16th St Mall. You can also shop online at Apothecanna's website.
