Does CBD work in conjunction with Pilates?
“When it comes to a whole health practice, the Pilates method encompasses a great deal,” says Ron Jegadeesh, Pilates Instructor, Physical Therapist, and owner of Pilates Fitness & Physical Therapy Center in Southfield. Developed by Joseph Pilates after World War I for use by injured veterans, Pilates recommended that movements be augmented by getting plenty of sunshine and fresh air, bathing the body and cells with oxygen via blood circulation, and living with vigor and zest. These days, that vigor and zest increasingly includes the addition of CBD as a Pilates and studios are discovering its many benefits in conjunction with movement.
CBD is a cannabinoid that does not get users high and exhibits no signs of dependence potential. For students who routinely experience pain, CBD can help reduce inflammation after exercise, support healthy sleep cycles, and deliver a sense of calm. Whether taken as an oil before engaging in Pilates, or used as a salve to melt away any post-movement, it’s showing amazing potential. Especially for those with arthritis. So don’t be surprised if the next time you take a Pilates class, your instructor recommends trying a CBD product!
