If you have chronic pain, you'll probably notice a major difference.
The last year or so has seen an explosion in products containing CBD, touted as a miracle cure for pain, anxiety, stress, acne, and more. You can use it to help you sleep, to improve your skin, and possibly even to beat that afternoon slump. One of the best ways to experience the effects of CBD, though, is through your skin-namely through an ahhh-inducing massage. If you're already getting regular massages you might want to consider upgrading to a treatment that incorporates CBD. Though the technique is usually similar to any other massage, the main premise [of a CBD massage] is that it reduces inflammation, which causes pain. It's becoming more popular, not because it's a trend, but because it really works. To understand why, here's a quick refresher on CBD: It's a cannabinoid compound found in hemp and cannabis that responds to receptors found in the skin. Through those receptors, it sends messages through your nervous system that help bring the body back to equilibrium, mitigating imbalances. What might cause these imbalances in the first place? Stress, for one, along with getting older. Through the process of aging, the systems in your body begin to break down," says Vanessa Marquez, CEO and founder of CBD Care Garden, a Denver-based company that produces CBD-infused skin-care products used in spas around the country. "Because of that, you may have an increase in inflammation and an imbalance of your endocannabinoid system, which is how the body receives CBD."

This fall, we're adding a NuFace treatment to all facials. Yes, you read right. As part of our fall promos, now when you book a facial, it will automatically include a pass with the microcurrent device—a $280 value!
In case you're wondering what NuFace is, it's a clinically tested therapy treatment used in top spas and medical offices for facial contouring, toning and firming of aging skin. Sounds amazing, right? Well, it is.
Here's how it works: microcurrent is a low-level current that mimics the body’s natural current and can provide both instant and cumulative anti-aging results. Because microcurrent works sub-sensory, the treatment is soothing and most clients feel nothing at all.
