I'm a big fan of all natural rather than Big Pharma. Here are some all natural ways to release muscle pain! Please note there are lots of different kinds of pain, and all these tips are specifically for sore and cramping muscles.


#1 - Sweat It Out

Don't underestimate the power of blood flow. If you're sore or tight after yesterday's workout, my first piece of advice will always be  to put on a pair of warm sweatpants and a hoodie, and do some cardio until you're soaking wet.

Get blood to the muscles and breathe! Yes it'll suck for the first 15-20 minutes but once you get warm it'll feel great. Once you get oxygen to your muscles they'll heal faster.

#2 - Stay Hydrated

Your muscles need water to recover! Drink Gatorade and water, and avoid diuretics like coffee and tea. Keep your muscles healthy!

#3 - Potassium

If you're getting muscle cramps while exercising, it might be a sign that you're low on potassium. Eat a banana, take a supplement, and check out this article that has a list of foods that are high in K. Many times we are in pain because the body is telling us it needs something.

#4 - Take a Hot Bath with EO
And when I say hot, I mean as hot as you can handle.

-Get in the tub while it's still filling up and turn it up as high as you can stand. I recommend covering the drain so you can fill the tub higher.

-Put peppermint oil in the bath so your skin stays feeling cool. This will allow you to stay in the bath longer, because you won't feel overheated.

-Make sure you don't stay in too long, because you can get heat sick. You can also put Rosemary oil in the bath, and that also helps with muscle cramps!

-When you're done, drink a full glass (8-16 oz) of water and put on some warm PJ pants and sweat shirt, and go to bed. Keep your muscles warm by sleeping in the warm PJs.

#5 - Get a Massage

Get on Groupon and find a good deal, and get yourself a massage. Never underestimate the power of good ol' hands-on massage.

#6 - TENS unit

Do you have a muscle that just won't release? It's too hard to massage out, and no stretch can target it? a TENS unit shoots little electrical shocks into the muscle to stimulate it, and then allow it to release naturally. I did a write-up on a very inexpensive one here!

#7 - Don't Underestimate the Power of Visualization

It is hard, but if you really focus on what your body is doing, you can release muscle cramps with your mind.

- Understand why they're cramped up, and what you did to make them sore.

- Understand and visualize which muscle is sore and what position it is currently in

-Visualize the muscle releasing back to the shape and position you want it to sit in.

Visualization takes a lot of practice, but once you learn to control your body with your mind, it can be very useful!

#8 - PainAway Essential Oil Blend

    #9 - Arnica Is Magic

    Arnica Gel comes from the Arnica plant, and it reduces swelling, inflammation, muscle soreness, and bruising. I used it on a bruise once and my bruise was gone in less than a day. It absorbs quickly and leaves no grease or residue on the skin!

    #10 - Make Your Own Muscle Rub

    Shea butter, coconut butter, and Radha Peppermint and Rosemary Oil by BB whipped into a body butter is easy to apply and feels better than Tiger Balm.
