How to Relieve Back Pain for good? What causes chronic back pain?

Thank you! Hope you have a peaceful day

Unfortunately, we are not taught preventative selfcare in schools. Low back pain is the second most common cause of disability in the U.S.  If you know anyone who struggles, please send them the link to this page with our videos below on how to treat their back pain for long-term prevention. While doctors can prescribe us painkillers and rest, the actual rehabilitation is left to our own devices. The best news is that the pain is not a life sentence, and our body responds incredibly well to the techniques we offer in our care routine. We can release tension, reduce inflammation and learn about our body through the practice of yoga, self-massage, and building strength that matters. The more research we did on massage therapy, the more we recommend using it as a monthly essential medicine with our Spa Membership.  If you are currently under stress and haven't worked out in a while, I recommend scheduling 2 massages 2 weeks in a row and continuing your health maintenance with a monthly massage. We now have daily availability and even added a fully-clothed deep tissue massage Tui Na. 

3 MAIN CAUSES OF BACK PAIN:

  1. Unbalanced core strength: not all 360° of the torso, shoulders, and hip muscles are evenly strong. 

  2.  Immobile lifestyle, improper posture, repetitive strain load, and all accidental injuries.

  3.  Mental stress is the major cause of low back pain regardless of any injuries. Stress release tools like Yin yoga, massage, breathwork, and meditation are proven to effectively treat low back pain. 

Massage improves lymph-blood circulation and metabolism, eliminates dead, damaged cells and toxins, and speeds up all recovery. Regular massage is even more important for people who do not work out as poor circulation fuels all dis-ease. Massage reduces the stress hormone cortisol and increases oxytocin which restores our energy, quality of sleep, immune system, digestion, and fertility. Massage therapy is the best natural pain relief treatment and is even recommended for cancer recovery.

Besides our CBD Massage, Cupping, and other integrative bodywork appointments, every Saturday at 10:30a we teach Gentle Yoga Class with Massage Therapy Balls for more area-specific tension release. An incredible class both for mental and physical stress reduction. And, Glow Yin yoga on Friday nights comes with longer-held feel-good stretches, promoting parasympathetic response, stress release, and ultimate relaxation.
