Natural Pain Relievers


Pain has many forms – you may feel it as a burn, a tingle, a sting or an ache. When pain is physical, your first impulse may be to reach for a pill. Prescription and over-the-counter painkillers can be dangerous and even toxic to your body which is why it’s important to explore alternative, non-invasive treatment options first. Once you receive a pain assessment from your doctor or chiropractor and determine what’s causing your physical pain, there are natural pain relief options that can help more than a pill ever could.

Massage

  • Ideal for: muscle tension, anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, headaches, insomnia, soft tissue strains, sports injuries

There are many different types of massage. After deciding which one is right for you, prepare to reap the benefits. Though many folks are weary at the thought of being touched by a masseuse, studies show that massage is effective for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension. Some forms of massage can leave you sore the next day, but the massage itself should never feel painful. If any part of your massage doesn’t feel right, speak up right away.

Acupuncture

  • Ideal for: chronic back pain, migraines, tension headaches, fibromyalgia, arthritis, sciatica

Acupuncture has been used for centuries to treat many conditions and relieve pain. Traditional Chinese acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely fine needles into the skin at specific “acupoints.” This relieves pain by releasing endorphins, aka the body’s natural pain-killing chemicals, by affecting the part of the brain that fuels serotonin, a brain chemical involved with mood.

Yoga

  • Ideal for: low back pain, arthritis, migraines

A study published in Annals of Internal Medicine found that among 313 people with chronic low back pain, a weekly yoga class increased mobility more than standard medical care for the condition. This is because yoga is a mind-body exercise practice that combines breath control, meditation, and movements to stretch and strengthen muscles.

In addition to these alternative treatment methods, it doesn’t hurt to tweak your diet. After all, keeping your immune system strong is critical to keeping the rest of your body healthy. One of the most powerful tools to combat inflammation doesn’t come from the pharmacy; it comes from your food. Try to avoid, or at least limit foods that inflame, such as French fries, soda, red meat, and refined carbohydrates. Instead, reach for tomatoes, olive oil, green leafy vegetables, nuts, fatty fish, and fruits. 


Why should you choose to come to Springfield Holistic Wellness for your massage instead of the many other great massage places (or wellness centers for that matter) that are so plentiful in our area?

The answer is really up to you.

When choosing a massage facility, generally we all want something clean and welcoming. We want a place that is soothing to our senses and entices relaxation. We also want a skilled massage therapist (hopefully licensed to perform massage) who is knowledgeable and performs his/her techniques with skill and an ability to assist us in whatever we are seeking, whether it is relaxation, stress reduction, or pain relief. 

We also want this service at a fair price.

I believe we provide all of that at Springfield Holistic Wellness. Maybe that is all you are looking for, and that is enough, but if you are looking for more, please consider a massage with me.

My name is Kerri Bacall. I am a Registered Nurse (20 years), Licensed Massage Therapist and Reiki Master (15+ years). Massage isn’t a job to me, it is my lifelong career. The facility where I work isn’t just a room I rent, it is my wellness center. It is a family practice where my chiropractor husband and I share not only our knowledge about health and wellness, but also our heartfelt life experiences with those who choose to be a part of our practice. On staff we also have a licensed acupuncturist and a certified yoga instructor. Each staff member is an educated, honorable, skilled and compassionate person. We are very lucky to have such an amazing group of people under one roof, and we are thankful to have them.

When you choose Springfield Holistic Wellness for your massage, you have chosen something different.

Prior to your visit, I prepare myself (and the space) to be mentally, physically and spiritually ready for you. Upon your arrival, you are the focus of my attention. We discuss your health and your needs to assist me in meeting your expectations. During the massage, I gently encourage you to also focus on yourself, as many adults don’t know how to relax and go inward; to listen to your body and mind and hear what they are telling you. This can be done energetically, by dialogue, or if you are not a talker, maybe just by asking you to take a deep breath at the start of the massage.

Sometimes you may need to talk and get a few things off your mind, or maybe you need to be very quiet. That is up to you. I let you decide. Whatever is said on the table stays on the table! 

I have a deep honor and respect for each individual who trusts me with their precious body. It is truly a temple, and I treat it as such. I will check in with you during the massage to inquire how you are doing. I aspire to provide you with an amazing massage, not just a mediocre one. That said, please let me know if the techniques I am using are therapeutic for you. If you leave my office and feel as though your massage was not all that it should have been, but you didn’t let me know, we both lose.

I believe the physical body is just one aspect of massage. There is so much more. Upon your request, we can incorporate essential oils, or energetic healing such as Reiki to enhance your massage experience. 

For more information about Reiki, me, us or our services please check out our website at  www.springfieldholisticwellness . You can read what others have said in our testimonial section and read the reviews on Facebook.

If the words that you have read resonate with you, please give me a call or email to set up your appointment, or perhaps you will stop in one day to meet us.

The choice is yours.

If not, I wish you peace and love wherever you go.

Fondly, 

Kerri
