Self Care Tips for Back Pain

Here are a few tips for taking care of yourself, in addition to self-massage.

1. Listen to your body. If your back begins to ache, learn stretches that keep muscles  loosened. Ice chronic back aches often. Many essential oils help inflammation in the back, neck, and shoulders.

2. Use massage tools to help you work deeper muscles or muscles that are hard to get to. 

3. Use ice packs for muscles that are inflamed or warm to the touch and heating pads for aches 

4. Know how to protect yourself from chronic pain and irreversible damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Learn the warning signs, and when to seek out a medical professional! 

5. Learn how to recognize aches and pains in back muscles, so that you can address them and avoid extreme tightness/pain.

6. Practice good self-care. In addition to massage, exercise regularly and get plenty of rest

7. Learn self massage techniques that are best for the pain you are experiencing

8. Seek medical attention if you start to experience symptoms of numbness or tingling

Medical attention should be sought early, and along with rest, ice and anti-inflammatory meds, you can often avoid serious injury.

Treatment is always easier on your body, less expensive, and will get you working again sooner if you seek it early. Some common disorders require long periods of recovery, sometimes even surgery, if they are allowed to worsen.

Symptoms of back pain that require attention:

  • Intense pain, even after self massage
  • Pain that lasts more than five days in a row
  • Clumsiness or weakness
  • Numbness, burning, tingling
  • Pain that radiates down the arm

Take at least 10 minute breaks at work. Take walks, take deep breaths, and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Try to stay on a routine schedule during the work day and stick to it as much as possible.

A back massage tool for pain in back, neck, and shoulders is used to obtain a life-long healthy body, and using the best of these tools is critical.

About Me

A few things about me and the creation of Massage Education Guide....

After 20 years of practicing massage, I decided to create an online resource for people who want to learn about massage, and how to relax our minds to release anxiety and stress.

I have had many clients come for massage, only to discover they just needed to talk, or they needed to cry, and let go of pain or worry, or stress, in a place they felt safe.

Finding a way to relax our minds, and  release stress and tension, is critical for a healthy immune system, as we find our way through this pandemic.

Now, because of this virus, I teach folks about the benefits of massage, essential oils, body scrubs, bath bombs, and other make-at-home goodies that help us de-stress in the comfort and safety of home ... to relax the mind and body, and make life so much better!

What's my passion? Massage therapy always and forever is my love, but helping people learn how to relax at home, is a very close second!

So, let's learn how to relax, to release stress, and rock this pandemic together!

Solo Build It!
