Everyone deals with pain at some point in their life. Whether you suffer from chronic pain or have suffered a recent injury, you know all too well how pain can disrupt your life and interfere with your regular activities. Medications to relieve pain often come with unpleasant side effects. Did you know that there are drug-free treatments available at the spa to help relieve your pain? Let’s take a look at three of them.
Misaligned posture can be caused by injury or bad habits such as slouching. Your body being out of alignment results in muscle tension and pain. After we analyze your posture to pinpoint the problem areas, adjustments are made by applying pressure and holding certain points to allow tense muscles to relax and allow your body to go back into alignment.
Therapeutic massage provides many benefits that can help relieve pain. First and foremost, massage relieves painful muscle tension. It reduces stress and promotes restful sleep to allow your body to heal. Massage has also been shown to reduce anxiety which is known to intensify the pain. Massage increases circulation to the area which can speed healing and help you to feel better sooner.
Acupuncture is an alternative treatment that promotes healing and restores balance to the body to relieve pain and many other symptoms. It involves very thin needles being inserted through the skin in key points on the body. Because everyone’s needs are different your acupuncture treatment plan will be tailored to your unique needs to ensure your maximum benefit.
