Sore Muscles? We can help!
Who here has the dreaded aching back, post workout soreness, or a stiff and sore neck? Maybe you’re chasing littles around, lifting things at work, slept a little funny or pulled something playing a sport you love. There are so many ways we can end up suffering from muscle pain. What about headaches, triggered by stress, computer work, sitting, or even standing? Our pure, clean organic Muscle Therapy can help all of these symptoms and more!
Our balm takes active medicinals sourced from active botanicals and suspends them in our organic and shea butter base. This is not an icy hot product but will provide some numbness in your muscles to help reduce the pain that you are feeling. It works when it is rubbed into the muscle as opposed to the aromatherapy being the main way that cold and flu products work. All moms need this, and anybody who is active and works out should have this in their bag of tricks. The main ingredient used for numbing is organic wintergreen essential oil and the analgesic comes from the combination of rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils.
Rub this into painful areas and follow with a warm washcloth to help drive the medicinal properties into your muscles.
On average, people get at least one headache per week. Let’s say you take two Advil or Tylenol per headache. 52 weeks times 2 pills equals 208 pills a year, and that is a low estimate and based on only one headache a week with one dose of medication. To ease headache pain, and toss your Advil in the trash and reduce the workload your liver has to do to eliminate these chemicals from your system. To use our balm for headaches, apply all around the base of your neck and massage any knots. Next, apply to jaw and massage the product in, finishing up by applying to temples with a gentle massage as well.
Headache Trigger Point Remedy
- Reach behind your head and place your thumbs on either side of the spine, just under the bony ridge (called the occipital ridge) at the base of your skull. Press firmly as you slowly tilt your head forward and back. As you lean your head back, you will feel your thumbs moving deeper.
- Do this several times, then move your thumbs out towards your ears about one half inch and repeat, dropping your head forward and backward. Keep the pressure firm. Do this until you reach the edge of your skull close to your ears. Trigger points in this suboccipital muscle group are the most common cause of tension headaches.
- Next, place your index and middle fingers at the base of your skull, on either side of your neck, just below your ears, which is the top of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscle. Apply firm pressure for ten seconds, then move your fingers down the muscle about one half inch.
- Again, apply pressure for ten seconds and repeat all the way down the muscle until you reach the collarbone. Then repeat the same pressure, hold, and release back up the SCM. The SCM has seven trigger points, making it one of the most highly concentrated trigger point areas in the body.
Hopefully this will give you the tools to try and alleviate your muscle soreness and head pain in a more natural way that is still very effective and a much healthier option for your body.
