Beyond Drugs: An Alternative for Pain Relief

We have a serious pain epidemic in our country right now, and even locally. Injuries, conditions, and diseases cause all types of pain ranging from sciatica to migraines. Medications are not the only option when it comes to pain relief.

MASSAGE
For over 29 years, our professional Massage Therapists have not only been helping guests relax and leaving them stress free, but they have been treating pain. From the Pregnant soon-to-be Mom, whose back is aching to someone suffering from plantar fasciitis, we’re here to alleviate your pains. Not only does a massage feel good, but it releases endorphins and serotonin – the body’s natural pain killers and mood regulators – to reduce stress hormone levels. Studies have shown that massage is effective in relieving pain and other symptoms associated with serious illness.

RELAXATION
Whether it be adult coloring books, yoga or meditation, taking time to truly relax can help you cope with chronic pain. Try incorporating things like breathing techniques, mindfulness and taking the time to do the things you love can truly make a difference.

PET THERAPY
If you have intermediate pain, doing something pleasant, even for a few minutes, can ease your pain. According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, pets have numerous health benefits, including that they can lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels and feelings of loneliness.
