Ten Alternative and Cost Effective Pain Management Techniques

Treatments - Holistic Approaches
Written by Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed.   

Traditional pain management medication often creates an additional burden on the body and may not be an option for some people. It can also be quite costly.

Try some of these holistic approaches that are healthy for your body and cost you absolutely nothing.

These techniques are helpful for chronic pain such as headaches, migraines, myofacial pain, muscular and connective tissue pain, organ pain and just pain in general.

1. Go Into Your Pain
Allow your pain to consume you and become one with it. Don't resist it. Just let it exist in its fullest extent. Welcome it and embrace it. When you resist pain it becomes stagnant, if you go into it, it will flow through you. This doesn't eliminate the pain, but releases the power it has over you and changes it form, therefore allowing you to function within it.

2. Breathe deep into the pain
Close your eyes and take a deep breath in through your nose with your mouth shut. The abdomen should distend on inhale, not your chest, and then exhale very slowly while focusing your mind and your breath into the area of pain. In your minds eye direct your breath into the pain. Visualize the breath flowing into the painful area and melting it away. Do this repeatedly until you feel it begin to release and then move to another pain area and begin again. It may take several breaths to release it. It may also take a lot of practice to train your mind to focus into the pain. I find this exercise more effective when I can close my eyes, but it is also helpful when your driving or in public places by doing the breathing without closing the eyes.

3. Stretch your face and jaw
Open your mouth as wide as it will go and then gently push it to go a little wider. When you feel the muscles in your jaw and head pulling and tingling then relax it. This will probably be excruciating and bring tears in your eyes, but it will release the pain and you will have a lot of relief afterwards. Then pull your lips forward over your teeth and stretch the front face muscles. Experiment a bit, wherever you feel the pain and pull and stretch the jaw in different directions until it hurts so bad you can't stand it and then relax it. After doing this several times then do the breathing into exercise described above and breath into all the jaw muscles and connective tissue in shoulders and collar bone.

4. Self Massage and apply pressure to trigger points
Gently massage the area with pain. Use your 2nd and 3rd fingers to rub softly in a circular motion. This is also helpful on painful organs. Massage the trigger points on collarbone, back of head or wherever they may be for you. Sometimes it is more effective to use the thumb for deep penetration into areas such as the collarbone. Gently press into the trigger points until again it feels like you will go through the ceiling and bring tears to your eyes and ...
