Natural Pain Therapies

I’ve been having some pains from my skateboarding, so I did some research into natural pain therapies. I hope you get something out of it:

With today’s modern medication, it is rather less complicated to take care of or manage pain. Physicians recommend using numerous painkiller drugs and treatments that could efficiently reduce, heal, and prevent discomfort. However, it is not necessary to take tons of pain medicines when instances of discomfort are severe. There are, in fact, several all-natural pain relief therapies that are understood to be efficient in relieving pain.

Many individuals opted to make use of alternate health treatments for many conditions and discomfort. Some utilize such all-natural treatments in addition to the treatments and drugs suggested by doctors to achieve much better outcomes.

The all-natural pain alleviation treatments that are rather preferred today:

Tai chi

Tai chi is an ancient Chinese Taoist fighting style that is commonly described as meditation in motion. This treatment is recognized to successfully integrate an individual’s posture, equilibrium, gaits, and versatility. Tai chi protects against and alleviates pain as it integrates the physical and psychological health of a person.


Yoga exercise

Yoga exercise is a popular Indian exercise that integrates breathing and stretching. This sort of treatment is a top selection of some people as treatment to many psychological and physical diseases. In adhering to yoga exercise therapy as therapy to discomfort, the intake of prescribed medicines or medication is more likely to lower as yoga helps to unwind the body muscular tissues, therefore, minimizing tension that is typically connected to pain.


In magnet treatment, magnets are applied to the skin with the goal of reducing body discomforts. Although there is no research that could better examine and validate the effectiveness of magnets as a body painkiller, lots of people still resort to this sort of treatment as an alternative to medications.



This is my favorite. Acupuncture involves inserting special needles into acupoints. I’m seeing an Acupuncturist here in Bellingham, and when I was living in Vancouver I was visiting a very skilled TCM practitioner.

Choosing a Skateboard


Have I mentioned that I am a skater girl?


It’s ME on the my board:


This is my FAVORITE activity to make me feel refreshed. If I’m dealing with something shitty at the moment, I just hop on my skateboard and I can whiz around. The air whipping through my hair makes me forget (almost) anything.

You HAVE to check this Youtube video out. I’m still a newbie when it comes to tricks and this video helped me tons:

Anyway, we should get to the point of this post!

Without further adieu:


Cherry’s Top Three Skateboards


Love the skulls and blood and punk. As a semi-goth girl, these ones are right up my alley. Plus, Elissa Steamer is my hero (she’s on their team).

These boards have enough flexibility and great quality wheels.


These boards are just simply great quality. My pal Jimmy is extremely rough with his, but he never runs into quality issues. He let me try his out for a few tricks, and I was impressed.


These are my absolute FAVE. Built from all-American Maple, and super great quality. They even have their own (patented?) AirLam press method of creating their boards. Awesome!


Well, I helped that this guide helped you pick out your next skateboard. Here’s me checking out.

Love the memory of my nerd dad, refilling the ink cartridges when they were low, and spilling the ink everywhere, and on all the new printer sheets… haha! It was awesome 🙂


Here’s a tutorial, just for fun:
