ACUPRESSURE: THE BEST NATURAL REMEDY FOR WHIPLASH
Whiplash is the most common form of trauma suffered by those who have been involved in a car accident. It often results in a strain as the sudden force stretches and tears the muscles and tendons in the neck. Moreover, the neck muscles tend to contract in order to relieve pain and this causes stiffness and a decreased range of motion of the cervical spine.
Acupressure (combined with magnet therapy in the BOOSTER version) can help at all stages of treatment, thanks to its natural anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving and muscle-relaxing properties and the absence of any of the harmful side effects typical of most medications.
Furthermore, both acupressure and magnet therapy seem to be able to facilitate sleep, which is very helpful as a stiff neck makes it difficult to fall asleep, disrupts sleep and causes anxiety.
Heat can also improve blood flow (hyperaemia), which helps relax the muscles before performing the exercises needed to restore full range of movement.
THE BEST ACUPRESSURE PILLOW FOR WHIPLASH
The pain-relieving properties of acupressure are well known. It stimulates the release of endorphins and, at the same time, inhibits the production of adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine—the hormones associated with pain, physical stress and inflammation (as in the case of whiplash).
It also quickly relaxes local muscles (by increasing blood supply), which helps rebuild damaged muscle fibres and ligaments. Magnet therapy can also play a very important role as it speeds up self-healing, strengthens the body’s defences through cellular repolarization and regenerates damaged cells by improving enzyme kinetics, thereby restoring the homeostatic equilibrium (in other words, it has a bio-regenerating, anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous effect).
At the beginning of treatment, you may experience some pain and/or dizziness. If that is the case, use your Mysa for 5-10 minutes each day and gradually increase length and frequency of use as the pain starts to wane. You should eventually be able to use it for at least 30 minutes a day.
THREE NATURAL TREATMENTS FOR WHIPLASH
Our first recommendation is, of course, our classic Mysa Thermo Pillow : an established product already used by thousands of enthusiastic customers and increasingly recommended by health practitioners.
It is the most complete natural remedy for whiplash currently on the market, thanks to its well-known analgesic, muscle-relaxing and stress-relieving properties.
In addition to its superior softness and ergonomics (thanks to its unique organic spelt chaff padding), its balanced-density, 33-tip florets (exclusive to Mysa) ensure maximum acupressure, while at the same time keeping pain perception in check. This is very important as hyperalgesia (i.e. an increased sensitivity to painful stimuli) is one of most frequent symptoms experienced by those suffering from whiplash injury.
OUR MYSA BOOSTER OFFER
If you want the absolute best, look no further. Meet our brand new Mysa ThermoMag Pillow , i.e. a heatable pillow featuring a set of precious, stable-field, negative-polarity, permanent bio-magnets. Such magnets have been positioned according to the principles of naturopathic magnet therapy, in order to specifically target the neck region.
It is a wonderfully complete product. The magnetic fields it generates interact with the body’s cells facilitating the return to a state of physiological equilibrium.
Furthermore, it boosts cell oxygenation and the supply of nutrients needed to regenerate tissues, it reduces inflammation, improves peripheral blood circulation and repolarizes cells devoid of energy.
A unique product. Beautiful and all-natural.
