Pain is truly horrid to have to deal with, and it can be one of the worst things to experience when you fall ill or are recovery after an injury. However natural pain relief can help to ease the discomfort and pain that you are feeling and here we list the top natural pain relief techniques.
Acupuncture has been used for centuries for its pain relief abilities and it is one of the best natural techniques to relieve chronic pain. Small needles are placed at specific points of the body to channel bad energy and release pressure caused by pain from illness. At Amchara detox retreat we provide acupuncture sessions and these are included in some of our packages.
Relaxing is surprisingly effective as natural pain relief, and until you try it you may not realise how little you actually relax properly. By relaxing in a reclined position and coupling this with controlled breathing which is a technique taught in yoga, you can feel some great pain relief in a natural way. If you struggle to relax, try listening to soothing music and ensure you’re in a room alone in the quiet away from other people. Electronic equipment should be switched off when you’re relaxing to avoid disturbances.
Having a nice warm bath can really help to relax the muscles in your body and can help to ease away pain from illness or injury. Therapy using water, known as hydrotherapy, can also include pain relief using a shower, sauna or any other form of water that helps to relieve your pain.
Yoga pain relief is widely used these days and by stretching the body in certain ways and holding particular positions you can relieve various kinds of pain. Yoga also teaches control of the mind and thoughts too so can help you to manage pain with your mind. But importantly by building on your core strength you can help to ease all kinds of pain.
Having pressure applied in different areas of the body through massage can really help to reduce the feeling of pain and in some cases completely stop pain altogether. It also helps to increase blood flow and this can reduce inflammation and promote pain relief.
