Cannabis? Wait, is it legal to use for massage? What is CHABA, and what if a client asks me to use a cream or lotion they have that has cannabis in it for their massage? Will I get in trouble for using it? Will it affect me?
What about the discussion I’m seeing about all of this on social media. Is any of it accurate? And, how do I navigate all of these these issues and not get myself in hot water?
One of the hottest topics and classes in our state these days has to do with the legal and ethical use of Cannabis Health And Beauty Aids (CHABA). And, if you’re considering using these products you need to protect your clients, as well as your practice, with the best information available, because getting it wrong can have significant consequences.
This class is designed to give licensed massage therapists in Washington the tools and knowledge they need to stay out of trouble and understand what can be used legally. The class will also cover the benefits of these products. This fun and informative course will help you:
  • Understand the history of cannabis law in Washington State
  • Understand the current rules and regulations around the use of these products
  • Maintain safe roles and boundaries with clients
  • Understand the basics of CHABA and cannabis and its benefits
  • Identify legal CHABA products available in Washington State
  • Speak confidently about the topic to your clients/patients
Your instructor, Jennifer Chan, LMT has been a massage therapist since 2007 and has been researching this topic since 2011. Jennifer was the first CHABA massage therapist out of the green closet here in Washington state and is “the expert” on cannabis and CHABA topicals here in Washington.
