Why is CBD so popular in the spa setting? Patty Rook, spa director, Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona, California: The spa industry has used natural remedies to relieve pain and ease stress (think arnica and aromatherapy) for many years. CBD is a plant-based topical that has anti-infl ammatory, analgesic and anti-anxiety benefi ts, all of which we've been addressing for a long time in our business. Clients are especially discovering that CBD can be a quick way to deal with chronic pain. Ella Cressman, owner, Ella Cress Skin Care in Wheat Ridge, Colorado: CBD is becoming more popular as stigmas lift, regulations change and an understanding of exactly how it works is formed. We are now able to use hemp-extracted CBD as part of our toolbox of products and treatment offerings. Because of CBD's anti-infl ammatory and antioxidant properties, in addition to its ability to help regulate cell proliferation and sebum production, it's extremely well suited to the spa setting. Describe your most in-demand CBD ser vices. Marie Parodi, spa and wellness director, JW Marriott in Chicago: The Deep Healing Muscle treatment is one of our top CBD-infused enhancements—it can be added to any massage for $25. This topical application combines cooling camphor with CBD for targeted infl ammation relief. Guests who've received the treatment have noted that it really helps diminish post-workout soreness. We also recommend it to people who spend a lot of time hunched over their desks, and when they discover their shoulders are no longer tight, they're hooked. June Ryan, LMT, owner, Total Freedom Wellness Spa in Prattville, Alabama: Our Deep Tissue Massage (30-90 min./$45-$100) using Biotone Lab+Blends CBD Massage Balm is the most popular CBD service. The balm contains 660 milligrams of hemp-derived CBD, and is enriched with hempseed oil and arnica extract, allowing me to give my clients precise pain relief. Cressman: The Detoxifying Facial from Color Up Therapeutics (50 min./$95) infuses each step of a traditional European facial protocol with calming, healing CBD. Also, an 'oil' dermaplane (50 min./$125) with the brand's Treatment Oil is an excellent exfoliating treatment. More than any other services offered, this one elicits the most 'ooohs' and 'ahhhs' 24 @dayspamagazine • March 2019 © GETTY IMAGES CBD SPOTLIGHT Spa pros offer their take on the increasing appeal of cannabidiol (CBD) in spa products and services. by Alexa Joy Sherman CBD Best Oil Beauty Cream Code of Harmony Skin Youth Serum Kneipp Pure Bliss Red Poppy & Hemp Mineral Bath Salt Color Up Therapeutics Treatment Oil CBD Care Garden Melt Body Butter Caribbean Island Biotone Lab+Blends CBD Massage Balm
