CBD massage combined with aromatherapy provides session benefits beyond basic touch.

The art and skill of your massages are undeniably restorative for your clients, but massage alone does not create the experience that keeps your clients coming back.

You might be asking yourself, “How can I provide a different experience that makes me stand out?” As a massage therapist, you need to provide a well-rounded treatment that includes a mix of the right techniques and tools to create a meaningful experience that makes clients want to return — and refer their friends. 

One solution you can easily implement is to enhance the effect of your massage by combining aromatherapy with naturally-derived analgesics and CBD.


Aromatherapy’s Benefits 

Aromatic essential oils are a vital instrument in the massage therapist’s toolkit. Inhaling their scents can bring major benefits to the therapist’s clientele and themselves. Botanical blends work to soothe the physical and emotional well-being of the client and the therapist alike.

Research has shown that the inhalation of essential oils stimulates the amygdala and hippocampus by way of the olfactory system, which can address physiological or psychological symptoms.

When a client smells the oils, their guanine nucleotide binding protein (G-protein) coupled receptors (GPCR) are activated, creating electrical signals that are then sent to the brain by olfactory sensory neurons. Research indicates this may provide various psychophysiological effects to the client, such as calmness and relaxation.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) terms, a massage combined with aromatherapy can help balance the qi, or energy,so clients can restore and revitalize their physical and mental state.

According to TCM, qi travels through the meridians, or the channels of the body, to maintain a person’s health. When it is unbalanced, the body suffers from pain, fatigue or illness. Essential oils can signal sensory neurons along these pathways and may promote a feeling of homeostasis in the nervous system.

Whether or not you relate to Eastern explanations or to Western medicine, one thing is clear: Aromatherapy helps clients and therapists alike restore their physical and mental states. That said, it is best to use a blend of oils in order to avoid inadvertently triggering unconscious memories from a single smell.

You can set the atmosphere before a session by burning aromatherapy candles blended with complementary scents or you can make your own blends in your diffuser.

To complete the experience, you should look for massage oils that contain special blends of aromatic essential oils that promote a sense of calmness or vitality.

Combining Aromatherapy with Naturally-derived Analgesics and CBD Hemp Extract 

While aromatherapy botanicals immersed in natural carrier oils can be enriching, adding plant-derived analgesics and CBD hemp extract to the mix can help massage therapists provide the ultimate restorative experience without requiring much effort on their part.

When the therapist taps into aromatherapy and the added benefits of localized pain relief, clients will get the best of both worlds. Aromatherapy will trigger olfactory responses to promote relaxation and rejuvenation while naturally derived analgesics, like menthol and camphor, send a cooling sensation to cutaneous sensory receptors that interrupt the brain’s pain signals.


This combination can also revive qi by opening life force of the body and the breath, with the combination of sweet or woody aromas and cooling or heating essential oils. 

The therapist will reap benefits as well.

The addition of analgesics and CBD hemp extract can soothe the therapist’s tired hands and arms during and after a hard day’s work.

For example, Lisa Moran, LMT, who recently used our aromatic pain-relieving massage products, says, “Not only did every client experience a reduction in pain, I did as well. Never once did I feel sore or achy, and I massaged well over 100 people! As a bonus, it smells nice too, not overwhelming like some other products can be.” 

The Aromatherapy Benefits Don’t Have to Stop at the Massage Table 

The therapist might think that the massage experience ends after they have folded up their table and the credit card has been swiped, but it doesn’t have to be the end. If the therapist wants clients to remember their massage experience, send them away with something memorable.

For instance, we’ve created small jars of our massage creams, oils, and ointments so clients can continue their massage experience in the privacy of their own homes. Our unscented, revive and relax creams and oils will further that relaxing and rejuvenating experience after treatment.

We’ve also designed the ultimate massage product with high levels of menthol and camphor for pain relief that needs special care and attention. Those who are sensitive to smells or hot/cold sensations will benefit from the unscented oil and cream. You can also use them to create your own signature scent. 

The therapist can sell them individually or as gift sets that will inspire the client to take the spa back home with them. A complete gift set sends the message that the therapist cares about the client’s well-being.

With takeaways like this, your clients will remember you and be more likely to return or refer their friends.
