6 Alternative Therapies For Pain Relief

Whether it’s from a temporary injury or a chronic condition, pain can sometimes be unbearable. No one wants to be going about their day-to-day business in constant pain. It can lead to fatigue, depression, and irritability. 

If you’re suffering from pain, it’s important to find ways of relieving it so you can live your life normally. Fortunately, there are many alternative therapies you can use to alleviate your pain. Here are a few to choose from.


Massage has been used for centuries as a natural form of pain relief. Deep tissue massage can reach your tissue and muscles, loosening them for easier movement. Massage frees your body from tension which can come as a result of pain.

It will also help you to rest well if you have trouble sleeping because of pain issues. The natural essential oils used in massage can help with pain relief too.


Acupuncture can target pain directly and give you relief for hours, even days. Another ancient therapy, acupuncture uses needles placed into the skin at specific points to alleviate pain and other ailments. 

Your acupuncturist will assess you before starting treatment to be sure of your medical history and where the root cause of the problem could be.


Reflexologists believe that each part of the body is connected and each part can be reached through your feet. So, even though you may take migraine tablets for headaches or migraines, there is a specific point on your feet that can help reduce the pain too. 

Similar to a foot massage, you will feel pressure on your feet in specific areas and it can relax you enough for a good night’s rest.


Recently increasing in popularity, CBD oil can target pain and give you temporary relief. Although the oil is derived from the same plant as cannabis, it doesn’t contain the THC component that would result in a high. So, if you’re worried about any addictive qualities, you don’t need to be.

All CBD does is relax and relieve pain. There are many ways you can use the oil including dropping it directly into your mouth, in food or drink, or in capsule form.

Mindfulness Meditation

Stress can add to the tension in your body which can make the pain worse. Taking time out from your busy schedule to meditate can make a huge difference in how you feel. In addition to allowing your mind to rest, it can also allow your body to heal.

Our bodies need rest for restoration and mindfulness meditation can put you in the right frame of mind to rest well.

Tai Chi

You may not think of exercise as something that could benefit you when you’re in pain but it can be a long-term solution. In the same way that using energy produces energy, working through pain can give you pain relief. Tai Chi is an excellent way to press the reset button for your body and set you up for feeling well in the future.
