At Glen Ivy Hot Springs, a new CBD infusion enhances the therapeutic experience
Inside the treatment room at Glen Ivy Hot Springs, I fidget on the massage table before the therapist enters the room. My face is buried into the cradle. After three deep inhales of aromatic oil, the session begins. A light pressure is applied from my shoulders to my back facilitated by Glen Ivy’s latest offering, CBD massage cream by CBD Care Garden, extracted from hemp. Within minutes I am still. My breath becomes deeper and slower.
Last August, Glen Ivy Hot Springs, in Corona, California, added CBD Care Garden massage oil or cream as an enhancement option to massage services. According to Vanessa Marquez, cofounder and CEO of CBD Care Garden, cannabidiol aids in reducing inflammation and joint and muscle pain, and reduces the body’s stress response.
Wellness seekers receive the benefits of massage a lot faster with CBD products than they would with traditional massage oils, says Chris Elawar, president, cofounder, and COO of CBD Care Garden. He explains that during a 50-minute massage it could typically take a client 40 to 45 minutes to release tension, allowing little time for the therapist to do deep work. With CBD Care Garden, the cannabinoid system receives the benefits within 10 to 15 minutes allotting more time for the deeper benefits of massage. “The shoulders drop sooner,” Elawar says.
Glen Ivy Hot Springs features 19 pools, retail, dining, “Club Mud,” and the Grotto, where you paint your body in warm aloe, coconut oil, eucalyptus and lavender inside a secret cave. The renowned hot springs destination recently completed the first phase of a three-phase, multimillion-dollar renovation. On the horizon for the wellness destination includes a 140-room hotel, an additional massage villa, and more pools with an estimated budget of more than $40 million. Until then, take a wellness day off from work and enjoy the benefits of soaking in mineral baths and CBD-enhanced treatments at this day-spa sanctuary. glenivy.com
