TTC after 35

Not TTC related. GYKY relaxation question

Having had some severe muscle knots all through my back and neck for three weeks, I was wondering what you all do for relaxation? I LOVE massages. Too bad DH has had too many wrist injuries to be able to give them to me. Thinking about getting some acupuncture or a massage this week to try and release these painful knots. I tried pressing a massage ball into them, taking hot showers, heating pad, and pain killers to try and release them to no avail. Sigh.

    My acupuncturist used cupping on my knots. It felt amazing.

    I hope that you are able to find a solution!

    My back problems are from herniated discs so only physical therapy helps me. But losing weight has helped by back so much. I haven't had a twinge all year.
    But I'm a fan if heat and cold when I get achy.

    I had a double fusion surgery two years ago this month.  Leading up to surgery for my spasms and inflamed muscles the following was the only thing to help.  I can not take NSAIDs so narcotic meds was the only thing I could take for relief and I hated them.  I was advised by my doctor and Physical Therapist to only use ice on my back.  It actually worked wonders.  When I wanted comfort relief I would take a lavender epsom salt and lavender milk bath.  It was always heaven.
