Primal Therapeutics in Billboard Magazine!

Recently Billboard magazine reached out to Primal Therapeutics owner, Jordan Person. They discussed what the future would be like as more famous people “come out green” and the demand for cannabis infused skin care goes up.  “Our goal at Primal Therapeutics is to educate as many people as possible on the powers of cannabis massage. We invite our patients to feel the difference every day,” says Person.  “Our patients tell us how amazing they feel so we now think it’s only a matter of time before cannabis infused topicals are widely accepted.”

Cannabis beauty products are steadily going mainstream and they have the ability to change the skin care game. As marijuana topicals become accepted so do the desires to have cannabis infused facials and full body scrubs and massages. Primal Therapeutics has been providing some of those services for 3 years now in Denver, Colorado and they are looking forward to what the future will bring. “We see awesome collaborations on the horizon so that we can continue bringing our patients what they want and need.”

5 Reasons Why You Should Try Cannabis Infused Massage Therapy

5 Reasons Why You Should Try Cannabis Infused Massage Therapy

Written by Travis

We need to dispel a common myth before we can talk about why you should try cannabis infused massage therapy. The products that are used by the massage therapist will not get you stoned, it is more of a way to open up your skin’s sensory profile, which leads to many other health benefits.

Given enough time for these topicals to take effect, and you wind up feeling revived, refreshed, as your tendons and muscles begin to heal from the combination of deep tissue massage and cannabis infused products.

Before we talk about the reasons why you should try a cannabis infused massage, we need to discuss what this type of unique therapy is all about.

A professional and therapeutic massage will soothe more than a tired body, it can also heal the soul. There is something therapeutic about being massaged, so when the massage therapist knows exactly how to relieve and relax stressed muscles, the end result is you feel alive again.

The ambiance of the massage clinic is just as crucial as the service, and proper lighting, music, and scents will amplify the overall experience, creating deep relaxation that allows the massage therapist to work more efficiently.

It only stands to reason that cannabis, which is known for restorative and properties, goes hand-in-hand with massage. Scientific basis for marijuana pain relief makes it a no-brainer for the ideal complement to massage.

Here are the 5 reasons why you should try cannabis infused massage therapy:

1. The Anti-Inflammatory Properties – One reason you should consider a cannabis massage is the fact it can help heal certain ailments. Unlike marijuana which has high THC levels that have narcotic properties, the CBD in the cannabis massage oils oil has healing properties and little or no narcotic effects.

No only will you not be getting high during or after the massage, your body will benefit from just the healing anti-inflammatory properties of these oils. Combined with the deep therapeutic massage performed by a professional, you will begin to feel relief from the painful symptoms associated with arthritis or sports-related injuries.

The CBD in the cannabis oils works to soothe those sore joints, giving you a boost of energy and allowing you to feel like you are not having difficulties with your muscles and joints at all. The healing sensations of the massage are only amplified when the oils penetrate the skin and reach the areas that are causing pain.

2. Increased Sensory Stimulation – The muscles and joints react immediately to a massage, but add in the cannabis oils and your entire body and senses will be stimulated. The skin is the largest organ on the body, and it needs to be taken care of just like other organs to be able to keep you healthy and feeling strong each day.

A gentle massage with the cannabis infused oils will stimulate your skin and help you to feel more alert and alive. The massage therapist performs the treatment in a way that not only is the muscles and joints stimulated, the skin now comes to life and will perform more efficiently.

Skin cells are being produced every second of every day, and this cannabis massage will allow the old skin cells to fall away rather than clog your pores, helping to revitalize your skin, tighten the appearance so fine lines and wrinkles disappear, and improve overall skin tone.

The therapist can also incorporate many different unique essential oils like peppermint that will also help appeal to your sense of smell and heighten the overall experience.

3. Increased Muscle Relaxation – Everyone knows that after smoking weed the body goes into this deep state of relaxation. That is part of the allure of smoking weed, you eliminate the stresses of the day and fall into this euphoric state that allows you to easily deal with the troubles in your body or mind.

Now add into the mix a massage therapist who is gently rubbing cannabis oils deep into your skin, and you have one of the most therapeutic and relaxing experiences possible. In addition to stimulating the skin surface, the cannabis oils will relax muscles and ease any tension or pain that you are feeling.

This is perhaps one of the best ways to decompress after a long and stressful day at work. It will revitalize, rejuvenate, and replenish your body during one session without the sleepy sensations you feel after getting high. You get all the healing benefits without any of the narcotic sensations.

4. Alleviate Stress and Anxiety – One of the most common ailments people experience today is stress and anxiety. People are worried about their jobs, about their money, about their children, about their health, and the list goes on and on.

By the end of a day, the added stress that a person imagines in their mind begin to take a toll on their body too. The physical symptoms begin as nervousness and escalate to anxiety, which can lead to deep bouts of depression if not dealt with in a timely manner. When a person sees a professional therapist who performs cannabis massages, the treatments can go to work on eliminating many of those thoughts that are leading to stress in the first place.

The massages can put a person in a happy place, allow them to look forward to a reward each time, and wash away the stress that can lead to depression or even strokes. The cannabis massage is ideal for people of all legal ages, massage needs, and lifestyles.

5. Eliminating Chronic Pain – Those who suffer from chronic pain often turn to marijuana to help them to cope with the pains they feel on a daily basis. According to reports released by the Maryland Medical Center, they found that deep tissue massages can be more effective for relieving chronic pain than most conventional medicines.

The reason that the cannabis massage is such an effective method for dealing with any chronic pain is because it decrease the inflammation, increases blood flow throughout the affected areas, and soothes that tension in muscles associated with the chronic pain.

The cannabis massage is also beneficial for helping to reduce blood pressure, provides stress relief, and rehabilitates muscles patients have sustained from various injuries. During these massages, the cannabis oil acts like a natural aid to loosen muscles and allow faster healing. The cannabis oils help muscles to relax just a little easier.

So now you know about the cannabis massage and how it works to heal a number of physical and mental ailments patients experience. Massage itself is an amazing way to help the mind and the body of people, it just doesn’t unlock the pain from certain areas, it’s all connected.

As legalization continues to sweep the country, cannabis oil combined with relaxation massage will only help benefit more people.

Cannabis Massage 101

jpeg_20161016_215714_-2083801155

By popular demand we are excited to announce we will be offering our first class in early spring. Cannabis Massage 101 will be a lecture style course offered in a beautiful location in Colorado, the epicenter of cannabis legalization and the cannabis massage movement.

We have reached out to the NCBTMB and the AMTA  regarding the possibility of receiving credit for your class and unfortunately at this time CEU’s will not be provided through either of those organizations. We attempted to become certified CEU providers through both organizations but we are a bit ahead of the times. Therapists write to us and are eager and ready to learn more but at a national level marijuana is still illegal. The board of NCBTMB does not feel that this is an area to explore for continued education, yet.

The below bullet-ed points are the concerns we received from the NCBTMB and our responses follow in quotations.

  • A client who is under any influence of any substance which can alter or impair their judgment cannot give proper consent, and without consent a massage is not supposed to take place. – “The products do not cause a psychoactive response, there is no “high” feeling achieved and most importantly consent is given prior to the treatment session.”
  • Altering substances may cause a  lack of sensitivity within the nervous system, and put the client at risk for injury, as they may not be as sensitive to pressure, heat, or cold. – “On the contrary all of the patients we have worked on since starting Primal Therapeutics have reported the ability to “feel” their issues in a way they never have before, including the ability to cope with chronic pain in ways they’ve never previously achieved.”
  • Additionally, a therapist applying these substances is likely to absorb the mood altering substance, therefore putting their professional judgment in question and open themselves up to malpractice liability. –  “As I mentioned above there is no mental high achieved from the absorption of topical cannabis. It is all about the health benefits associated. I have seen up to 6 patients in a day and felt zero effect.”
  • Professional liability insurance may not be valid if a therapist is working professionally under the influence of any substance, controlled or not. – “This is a valid point and one that I hope will change as progress continues across our nation. We have nine states on the ballot for either medical or recreational marijuana this November.”

The need for knowledge is great and we have learned so much since we started this company. We are excited to share the data we have collected with you. If you are interested in taking Cannabis Massage 101 and learning from Primal Therapeutics  please fill out this form or please feel free to write to primaltherapeutics@gmail.com to add yourself to our future students list and to receive updates on the class. We look forward to sharing our knowledge with you soon!

Welcome Jessica!

We have a new team member here at Primal Therapeutics! Please join us in welcoming Jessica Johnson.  She has a healing touch and knows exactly how to find those painful problem areas.

 Jessica’s love of the healing arts started when she was a small child in Her father’s chiropractor office. There you could find her hidden away in the empty massage therapist room. She spent all her time in that room lying on the massage table and looking at as many massage books as she could. By the ripe age of 9 she had already started building her personal clientele list, her fellow classmates would line up and wait for a shoulder rub from her during story time. Since then, her love for massage has only grown.
 Taking all the knowledge of the body she could from her father, she finally went on to Denver School Of Massage Therapy and after a year of night classes; she fulfilled her childhood dream of being a licensed  massage therapist. Finally turning her passion into a career. Again, her love for the healing only grew.  She continues to learn as much as she can about the body’s healing secrets.
Jessica says, “joining the Primal Therapeutics team was a complete game changer for her.” She has worked with many injuries while working at a chiropractic office; but she never experienced the body instantly reacting so positively to a simple remedy. Mixing her healing touch and the cannabis infused oil, the bodies she has worked on have shown amazing results, she was astonished and immediately intrigued in the amazing healing properties of the cannabis massage oil.

 

If you are interested in experiencing Jessica’s healing touch please don’t delay, treat yourself today. Book Jessica HERE.

Discussion Forum for Cannabis Infused Massage Therapy

Knowledge Is Power

JordanPerson-18Over the past year I have worked on patients from all over the globe including visitors from just about every state in the United States, as well as Australia, Guam, Canada, and all over the UK just to name a few. Each patient seemingly shares the same common interests: cannabis and wellness.  People that don’t usually receive massage therapy now want to receive it and want to discover the healing properties of cannabis for themselves. The fear factor normally met by patients wanting to experience something new for some reason fades away when cannabis is involved.  Patients inquisitive nature takes over their fears and they become more open to the possibility of a pain free and narcotic free life with the use of cannabis infused topical treatments.

For many, their first massage ever is a cannabis infused one and the first question is always the same, “will I get high?” My answer is always the same, “no, that is not the point of this type of bodywork, I started this company with the goal of educating people that it’s not always about getting high.”  If the products did cause a psychoactive response, I could not make it through a normal work day, I would be far too intoxicated to perform bodywork.  This answer generally leads to their next question, “do I need to worry about failing a drug test?” To date, no one has failed a drug test from the use of topical transmission of cannabis. The infused products are staying in the dermal level and are not entering the bloodstream.  This opens cannabis infused massage therapy to patients that can not use any other form of cannabis but still desire its therapeutic health benefits.

Patients of all kinds have contacted me in hopes that they will have some type of relief. I have treated numerous ages and conditions from MS in a 42 year old and Neuropathy in a 90 year old to Cancer in a 4 year old and PTSD in many ages. The benefits for each patient are seen repeatedly with each new diagnosis I get to work with.  Each patient notes a deeper sense of relaxation then typically felt after a massage. A reduction of pain, swelling and inflammation is noticed on chronic areas of discomfort as well as cutting healing time in half on numerous types of acute injuries. Increased blood flow to constricted and congested areas of discomfort allow for deeper bodywork to take place without needing to excessively perform deep tissue massage. The products work while I am working preventing hand and wrist pain as well as joint swelling. The benefits are many and the side effects are non-existent unlike most topical pain relief treatments found at your local pharmacy.

I look forward to the coming year and the continued advances of the growing field of cannabis infused massage therapy. Knowledge is power and the more science that comes out to support the theories behind these new techniques the better.  Primal Therapeutics hopes you will join our pursuit in continuing to spread the word that we no longer have to live in an over medicated society. We can go back to plant medicine and living holistically, using cannabis infused massage therapy as treatment instead of pharmaceuticals and chemical laden products.
