The healing power of touch may well be an ancient art, but as a massage therapist you likely feel the need to keep up with the latest developments in your field to ensure you’re providing your clients with the best treatments at your disposal. Being a massage therapist is physically demanding as well, so it’s important that you take care of your own health too. A big part of taking care of your own health is taking care of the financial health of your business, as well as staying inspired and nourished by your work. If you are looking for a way to invigorate yourself and your practice, or if you are simply eager for a cutting-edge treatment to help you stand out, then look no further; CBD CLINIC™ and Charlotte’s Web™ have teamed up to bring you a product offering tailored specifically for massage therapists, called the CBD CLINIC™ Massage Therapy Series!

The Winning Combination of Temporary Pain Relief, Aromatherapy, and Skin Conditioning CBD
The CBD CLINIC™ Massage Therapy Series is a line of oils, creams, and ointments created with massage therapists and their clients in mind. The Series is designed to magnify the already profound benefits of massage without requiring you to use extra exertion.
So, what makes these products remarkable?
Powerful, Soothing, Expertly Blended Formulas Designed for Massage
Each product contains:
- Natural analgesics menthol and camphor based on 15 years of experience researching, developing, and testing naturally-derived remedies
- Highest quality natural essential oils and extracts
- Enriching skin nourishing natural emollients including premium Charlotte’s Web™ full-spectrum hemp extract in CBD CLINIC™ Massage Therapy Series products except for the unscented products.
Greater Versatility in Your Massage Practice
The CBD CLINIC™ Massage Therapy Series offers Ultimate, Relax, and Revive products, each with Charlotte’s Web™ full-spectrum hemp extract, but with varying levels of natural analgesic ingredients menthol and camphor. This allows you to offer your clients a stronger or milder intervention. On top of that, each product line is distinguished by unique blends of aromatic essential oils that complement those different concentrations of analgesic botanicals, giving you even more flexibility in tailoring your massage for aromatherapy experiences and specific wellness outcomes. For example, one formula blends calming scented essential oils, and is perfect for clients who primarily want to unwind, relax, and have a delicious spa experience. Another blends essential oils with more uplifting properties to help clients who need to feel a renewed sense of energy as well as temporary pain relief. The third provides a blend with even more galvanizing essential oils.
In addition, CBD CLINIC™ Massage Therapy Series offers unscented massage oil or cream containing only enriching emollients and skin nourishing CBD, for use with clients who may be sensitive to strong aromas. You can also use this as a high-quality base to showcase your own personalized, signature products with essential oils of your choosing. (The Unscented Collection does not currently use Charlotte’s Web™ full-spectrum hemp extract.)
CBD with Peerless Quality Assurance
Like all Charlotte’s Web™ products, the CBD CLINIC™ Massage Therapy Series is scrupulously manufactured in an FDA-registered facility in compliance with FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
Menthol is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) OTC Monograph process to be “generally recognized as safe and effective” (GRASE). Menthol has natural analgesic and anesthetic properties, and it is readily absorbed through the skin. Menthol penetrates the outer layer of the epidermis (stratum corneum) interacting with the nerve network in the dermal-epidermal junction, which extends close to the skin surface. In addition, menthol acts as a counterirritant by interacting with specific receptor sites in our nervous system known as TRPM channels (transient receptor potential melastatin), which modulate temperature perception. Because of their association with menthol, these receptor sites are also known as cold and menthol receptors.
When used topically, menthol produces a cooling sensation on the skin at the source of pain. In reality, menthol doesn’t lower skin temperature. Instead, it creates a sensation of cooling by interacting with the TRPM nerve receptors. According to Gate Theory, which is a model for understanding nociception, certain non-painful stimuli will cause nerve “gates” to close shut in the presence of painful stimuli, thereby preventing the sensation of pain from reaching the central nervous system. This means the cooling sensation of menthol competes with and counteracts pain sensations, resulting in effective pain relief. In addition, menthol dilates local blood vessels in the skin where it’s applied. This improves blood flow to any areas of injury or inflammation, further helping to bring relief.
Menthol has been widely studied for its temporary pain-relieving properties.
Camphor is also approved by the FDA OTC Monograph process to be “generally recognized as safe and effective” (GRASE). Camphor is easily absorbed through the skin, and has analgesic, anesthetic, and anti-inflammatory properties. It acts as a counterirritant by producing both cold and warm sensations when applied topically. This means it competes with and counteracts sensations of pain before they can reach the brain, allowing us your clients to experience pain relief. Camphor also increases blood flow in the skin and to muscles. As with menthol, increasing blood flow to an area of inflammation or injury helps promote pain relief and supports healing.
As well as being a counterirritant, camphor may have temporary pain-relieving effects by directly interacting with nervous system receptor sites known as TRPV1 (transient receptor potential vanilloid 1) and TRPA1 (transient receptor potential ankyrin 1). Both TRPV1 (also known as the capsaicin receptor) and TRPA1 are involved in nociception. Camphor has been shown to relax muscle spasms and cramps.
Frankincense (Boswellia sacra) Oil
Frankincense comes from the resin of the Boswellia tree, which is found mainly in the mountainous regions of India, Africa and the Middle East. Frankincense essential oil is calming.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) Oil
Lavender has been used for centuries for its scent that helps provides a sense of calm.
Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis) Oil
Chamomile is another plant with a scent that helps provide a sense of calm.
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) Oil
The peppermint essential oil itself has a scent that helps provide a sense of revitalization.
Clove (Eugenia cariophylata) Oil
The essential oil of clove has a scent that helps provide a sense of revitalization.
Sage (Salvia officinalis) Oil
Sage has a scent that helps provide a sense of calm. In this way it can have a soothing impact for both massage therapist and client.
Tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) Oil
Tea tree oil beautifies the skin.
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) Oil
Eucalyptus essential oil has a scent that helps awaken the senses.
Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) oil
Jojoba oil is a carrier oil. It is able to moisturize in a similar way to our skin’s own natural oils without blocking skin pores. Jojoba oil is readily absorbable, and highly effective at carrying the analgesic herbs, essential oils, and skin nourishing CBD full-spectrum hemp extract with it.
The Massage Oil Advantage
Massages incorporating massage products are in high demand. These products will help give you and your practice a distinct advantage and greater versatility in how you position yourself. You can charge more for specialized massages. You can educate clients about self-massage, and support them by selling these products to take with them as part of their aftercare plan or home “spa” treatment.
A part of the Charlotte’s Web family, CBD CLINIC™ products are dedicated to quality, and the CBD CLINIC™ Massage Therapy Series will benefit clients who seek pain relief from the active ingredients menthol and camphor, relaxation, rejuvenation, or any combination of those experiences. These exclusive products can also benefit your own self-care by supporting the financial health of your practice — heightened client satisfaction translates into increased business for you because clients will come back regularly and also spread the word. The natural analgesics menthol and camphor and skin conditioning full-spectrum hemp extract will also soothe your own tired hands and arms during and after a hard day’s work to help you enjoy your success even more!
Whether your focus is Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, lymphatic drainage, sports massage, trigger-point therapy, Shiatsu, or any other massage bodywork specialty, you can incorporate these CBD massage products into your therapeutic and spa regimens, and both benefit your clients’ health and wellbeing, and transform your practice in the process.
