Cannabidiol Oil has been in the headlines for its healing properties and pain management. La Rue Verte have launched a range of products featuring CBD oil. The Spa at The Blythswood is the first to offer treatments using the oils in Scotland, the aim of which is to bring a sense of calm to your mental and physical wellbeing.

After a consultation with my therapist Kim, I was asked to highlight any points on my body I wanted to target during the massage through reflexology body mapping. Kim applied the CBD balm during the massage with special attention to the areas I had highlighted. Each treatment aims to alleviate inflammation and pain as well as non-physical pains such as anxiety and mood.

I suffer from various aches and pains, and I could feel a warming tingling sensation during the massage. Afterwards not only did I feel relaxed but also in good spirits so it did lift my mood especially after a hard day at the office. They also offer a CBD facial (£89, for 55 minutes) and CBD bath (£49, for 30 minutes).

As if you aren’t relaxed enough, afterwards you can enjoy a thermal experience, a series of rooms designed to take your body on a wet and dry, and warm and cold journey, which is great for the pores. Or jump in the pool for a swim or have a sauna or a visit to the steam room.

La Rue Verte body massage, 55 minutes, £94. For full details call 0141 248 8888 or email Rooms at the hotel start from £120 per night
