How to Alleviate Your Pain with These 5 Therapies

Alternative Therapy or Complementary Therapy is generally treatments that are used in place of or alongside conventional medicine. My advice is to always get a diagnosis from a qualified doctor before making any decisions to use alternative/ complementary therapy.

Alternative therapies include many disciplines, such as acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, therapeutic touch (Reiki and healing), guided imagery, yoga, hypnosis, biofeedback, aromatherapy, relaxation, meditation, herbal remedies and many others.

Research over the past few years has shown evidence of benefits for Mind-Body therapies, like acupuncture and meditation for helping to manage pain. Other alternative therapies like massage, chiropractic, therapeutic touch have the potential to relieve pain in certain people.

There are so many alternative therapies, what works for one person is not necessarily going to work for another. Finding out about the various therapies and deciding which one to try is a good idea, you may need to try several before you have success.

 Meditation and Hypnosis

These are mind-body therapies which are to help the mind to have an effect on the body. Meditation and hypnosis help the body to relax which can help alleviate discomfort related to chronic pain. Many types of pain are created due to tension in the body so relaxing will help relieve your pain.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is thought to decrease pain by increasing the release of chemicals that block pain, called endorphins. Many acu-points are near nerves when stimulated, these nerves cause a dull ache in the muscle. The stimulated muscle sends a message to the central nervous system, causing the release of endorphins (morphine like chemicals produced in our bodies during times of pain or stress). Endorphins are neurotransmitters (body chemicals that modify nerve impulses), block the message of pain from being delivered.

Chiropractic

Chiropractic treatment is the most common non-surgical treatment for back pain. Research has shown chiropractic may be helpful for headaches, neck pain, back pain and whiplash. There are other conditions which can be treated depending on your circumstances. Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, the theory being that proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. Manipulation is used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as falling, or repetitive stress, such as sitting without proper back support.

Massage

Seated acupressure massageMassage is used to help people suffering pain, to mainly manage back and neck problems. Massage can reduce stress and relieve tension by enhancing blood flow. This treatment can also help reduce the presence that may generate or sustain pain.

 

Therapeutic Touch and Healing

Energy healingHealing and Reiki is a channelling of energy into the body to help restore your energetic vibration back to normal. Our bodies are all energy vibrating at certain speeds. If your vibration speed is not correct you may have an illness or pain, the various energetic type healing therapies help to put your body back to its normal vibration. These therapies are normally done by laying hands on or close to your body.

Snail Gel

Dr-Organic-Snail-GelSnail Gel the potent , soothing, anti-ageing skin cream

The healing and repairing properties of the slime, which is harvested without harming the snails, the mucus from the snails is collected as they crawl over special glass and plastic surfaces. The discovery was made  by chance when Chilean snail farmers noticed their hands  healed more quickly without any scars and were very soft and smooth to the touch. The natural extract Helix Aspersia Muller the unique substance the snail produces to quickly regenerate its own shell and skin, contains a balance of beneficial substances which include glycolic acid, collagen, elastin, allantonin, vitamins and minerals.

This is how all the substances work to produce great-looking, healthy skin:

Glycolic Acid

Snail Gel contains enough glycolic acid to produce a gentle elimination of superficial dead skin cells, and to help promote their replacement with new cells, formed using the stimulus of allantoin. It also enables cleansing of pilose follicles and favours the absorption of the other natural substances contained in the snail extract.

Allantoin

A proven stimulant for skin regeneration – also effective for healing, smoothing and anti-irritation – that works by increasing water content and strengthening cell structure.

Collagen and elastin

These are structural proteins that bond skin tissue, nurture skin and improve its appearance. Collagen gives connective tissue and organs rigidity so they can function, and elastin lets them stretch and return to their original state.

Proteins and vitamins

Contribute to the constant regeneration of skin while also acting as anti-inflammatory agents.

Dr Organic snail gel is mixed with Aloe Vera which is very cooling and helps to reduce redness in the skin and it also contains lemongrass which gives it a lovely  lemon smell.  The gel feels instantly cooling and refreshing on the skin and it is a freshness that lasts and the lemon scent is very awakening.

If you would like to try the gel before buying a pot for between £20 and £25, you can book a facial with me at a pamper event or a full luxury facial at home.

          Did you know….?

Have you ever looked down and noticed your cuticles were dry and cracked? If your hand lotion is simply not strong enough to keep those cuticles moist, step up the game a bit with lip balm. The thick texture of the lip balm will last longer than traditional lotion and really moisturise dry cuticles!

            Have you tried…..?

            Ice water for perfect nails. Many people think the best option is to dry the nails after painting with a blow dryer on the heat setting. If                     this doesn’t work for you, next time, paint those nails  and then place your fingers in a bowl of ice water. The ice water will seal the polish             on the nail. The result – brighter, shinier nails.

        Thought of the month …….

          …that every day is a New Beginning.

A new cycle begins this day, yet a new cycle begins every day. Indeed, every moment. So if you recognize anything on this day,                                 recognize what it symbolizes: The miracle of the endlessly continuing Cycle of Life.

What a grand day! What a time for celebration! We begin again today! We turn the page! And so, let go of all that you do not wish to                      carry with you any further.

Any fear, any sadness, any anger, any resentment, any disappointment, any lament…let it all go. And now, using the specialness of this                day as a springboard, let’s get on with Life!

         Neale Walsch

      What’s on………

Did you know…?

We all want a healthy body! And many of us spend our lives jumping from diet to diet forgetting the importance of muscle. For every extra pound of muscle we add to our bodies we lose an extra 50 calories a day whether we are active or not.  For a healthy body, make sure to build muscle as well as lose fat.

Have you ever tried…?

Blueberries to reduce inflammation. Blueberries contain antioxidants that can reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation is now thought to be one of the main causes in certain diseases like diabetes and cancer. These antioxidants also fight off free radicals which can leave the skin looking and feeling younger as healthy cells begin to regain control over the free radical producing cells.  Considering it is fruit so it’s nice and healthy we think it’s worth a try!

Thought of the Month….

….. that when you see the light at the end of the tunnel, it is not beneficial to go out and build more tunnel.

It was John Quinton who observed that politicians do that.

Maybe you’ve caught yourself doing it, too.

Just when things look like they’re getting better, you start seeing more things that “aren’t right,” or “could go wrong.”

The Universe is essentially a friendly place.

So friendly, in fact, that it will give you exactly what you expect it to.

Isn’t that wonderful? Of course, it depends on what you expect…

Neale Donald Walsch
