You do not need to be undressed completely for the massage, some people get completely undressed while others wear their undergarments, you may undress to whatever your desired level of comfort is. You will undress and dress in the privacy of your massage room and will be securely covered by a sheet during your massage session.

For preventative care and overall wellness, a frequency of one massage per month is typical. For injury recovery or chronic ailments, you may consider a massage frequency of 2-4 times per month.

During your first visit, you will be asked questions to find out which body parts you would like focus on and if you have any injuries or chronic pain. We will also confirm the style of massage and pressure you would like to receive. All massages are customized to your needs at that time. You will be required to fill out a health history form, if you haven’t already filled out the form online. It is important to list all health concerns and medications so that we can adapt the session to your specific needs in a safe manner. Lotions or essential oils are used during your massage therapy session, so it is important to list any known allergies you may have on the health history form.

CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. It has been reported to help reduce pain, inflammation, anxiety, and stress. It will not get you high.

A CBD topical is any cream, lotion, oil, or salve that is infused with CBD and can be applied directly to the skin.

With topical application it is highly unlikely, and close to impossible, for an amount of THC to be absorbed and metabolized by the body and detected in a drug test. Of course, there are circumstances that could change this such as the use of penetration enhancers, transdermal patches, and a higher than legal limit of THC in the product. The CBD topical ointments I use at Canyon Massage Therapy always contain at or below the .3% legal limit of THC.
