Brianna Avalos, LMT
Hi there! My name is Brianna, I am a California Licensed Massage Therapist and I am here to spread awareness about the health benefits of cannabis infused topicals when incorporated with therapeutic massage. My journey began in 2014 when I discovered Mary Jane Medicinals infused massage oil. I was looking for an all natural product to try on friends, family and personal clients just to test the waters of “cannabis massage”, little did I know this would become a whole movement. As I continued to use this cannabis infused topical I noticed that this oil was contributing a stronger sense of relaxation and pain relief for my clients, and my arms rarely got sore from using it. I could massage for longer periods of time without rest and worry of pain.
I pursued my curiosity about these oils once I saw significant results with my mother who was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2016. I knew the cannabis massage oil would help, but I didn’t realize the amount of relief she would actually feel. My wonderful mother was lacking energy while feeling pain and soreness every single day. She trusted my confidence in cannabis massage and tried it out for herself. From the first massage I gave her, she was pain free for over a week. As I continued a weekly massage schedule for her, I was ecstatic to see her health improve immensely from this plant incorporated with my profession. So much to the extent of creating the Cannabis Massage Movement. From then on I started keeping track of my clients’ wellness and experimented with different infused topicals for their needs.
In April 2017, I branded the Cannabis Massage Movement as a mobile service and marketed out in dispensaries and other vendor event opportunities. My knowledge of cannabis massage grew when I found Jordan Person of Primal Therapeutics out in Denver, Colorado. I attended her first class, Cannabis Massage 101, which refined all the information I knew about the endocannabinoid system, topical application, and benefits of cannabis massage.
This, along with my own thawed out research, has kept me up-to-date with education and the ability to provide the best possible service for inquisitive clients questioning CBD or THC massage. Whether it’s for stress relief or pain relief, cannabis and hemp infused massage can provide the wellness your body desires.
