Back Pain and Back Muscle Spasms- 3 Ancient Therapies Provide Healing Relief and Cure


When your back muscles ache, or start to spasm, they are usually overworked. Their pain or soreness may be a form of fatigue. Spasms suggest that they just can’t relax.

Many natural therapies provide temporary relief. But when a therapy treats the cause, instead of the symptoms, your relief will last longer. These 3 practices may get to the deeper problem, for real cure.

Muscle Activation.
Different styles of muscle activation have been practiced over the years. In ancient far Eastern cultures, exercises like martial arts and Tai Chi have been used to release tension and improve energy-flow. The muscles loosen, releasing stagnant energy. They clear and replenish the whole body.

One modern style of muscle activation is Applied Kinesiology (AK). Its principles are more passive than older exercise-based styles. Whether you receive AK or older styles, your muscles might get the rebalancing they need.

Essentially, acupuncture moves energy. Tiny pins are used for conduction. Its goal can seem similar to muscle activation. It can draw energy from overworked muscles, and energize muscles that are not working hard enough.

When our muscles are imbalanced, other body systems may get imbalanced. Digestion, breathing, sleep, and mood all may be affected by muscle imbalances. Acupuncture is effective for treating systems, causes, and other secondary problems.

Some would consider homeopathy to be more modern. But ancient cultures practiced the same principles to heal people thousands of years ago. A homeopathic physician will develop a special therapeutic blend of natural ingredients, based on information the patient provides about their condition.

A homeopath will deduce the cause and create a treatment that simulates the same condition within the body (on a very small scale). How does this work? It encourages the body to heal itself. This homeopathic basis is called “like cures like”.

In a similar way, shamen of native cultures around the world develop potent tinctures from plants to treat their patients. Herbalists and plant-doctors have also used these kinds of treatments. They might mix up balms and salves, pills or potions. Many natural therapies use homeopathic principles to derive treatments based on a holistic view of the patient’s life.

Although many natural treatments can help your back muscles to relax, the most long-lasting treatments will be based in these fundamental practices.
