Personally, I love Swedish massage and I think that if you have never had one – you should definitely get one now.

July 4th, 2009

Posed by model image of a woman relaxing.  Champneys health spaDid you know that Magnets can actually be used to relieve your pain?  Well, I didn’t until I started doing some research for this blog.  I thought that magnets were just magnets and what actually happens is that they work to create a flux field that protects a lot against any calcium or sodium ions.  Basically, the first is going to slow down the healing process and can actually destroy some vital cells in the human body.

With all of the technology out there, magnets now have been proven to relieve pain and honestly, improve the chances of recovering from some of the very serious injuries that some people suffer from.  Most of the time a magnet is actually the very first step when a person is on the road to recovery.

I think that is so cool, magnets are honestly something that I never would have considered as being a pain reliever, but they are! Alternative medicine – i love it!

cupping-glass-1For those of you that are not familiar with what this picture represents, it is actually a form of massage called cupping or suction cupping.  There are many different benefits to this creative and unique massage; however, you want to make sure that it is going to be right for you.  Basically, the process of cupping is going to use the power of suction to draw blood to the one area that is experiencing pain.  Whether the pain is in your neck, back, legs or arms, cupping can be used on any part of your body.

Specifically, cupping is used for chronic pain and can be quite beneficial, however, in America, many Americans are still skeptical as of whether or not it really works.  In most cases, this process is not painful at all and is completed in a very short time, however, it looks painful and that is what most people are scared of.

If you are suffering from chronic pain and have tried everything else – what do you have to lose?  You could have a lot to gain from this method though.
