Lumbar blocked, back pain intense ... No way to let back pain ruin our lives! Our sweet solutions to get rid of it.
1 / Use heat to relax
As soon as you feel your back tense, apply a warm patch, hot water bottle or take a warm bath at night. To accentuate the relaxing effects of the latter, add to your bath oil 3 drops of noble chamomile essential oil and 3 drops of mandarin essence, and disperse in water.
2 / Practice the massage to soothe
Do a self-massage of the painful area or, if possible, have your back rubbed with arnica oil in which you have poured lemon eucalyptus essential oil (count 3 to 4 drops of HE for 3 to 4 drops of arnica oil).
3 / Use analgesic medicines
Combine harpagophytum and willow or meadowweet and blackcurrant. Take 20 g of each plant and brew 1 tbsp. in one cup for 10 minutes. Drink 2 to 3 cups a day as long as the pains last. In homeopathy, take Arnica 5 CH, 2 granules 3 times a day until improvement.
4 / Bet on acupressure to relax
Place a cushion or acupressure mat under your back, on the skin (Flower Field, Climson Zen ...). They are equipped with hundreds of small pimples that stimulate the acupuncture points. This triggers the secretion of endorphins and oxytocin (relaxing hormone), relaxes the muscles and stimulates blood circulation.
