- Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt :
How I treat general body and muscles aches and pains.
- The Stick
For physical maintenance, self, massage, and rolling out those tired muscles.
- Foam Rollers
Foam rolling is an absolute must. I can’t always afford a personal massage therapist, as much as I would love it, so I break up trigger points and knots in the muscles by religiously foam rolling.
I swear by wearing compression socks on the long run or after a quality run to help promote circulation and or prevent blood from pooling in the lower half of your legs. You can purchase so many fun ones now and we started a “funky sock” trail run thing last cross country season on our team that was fun.
Sometimes my back gets tight from all the running or a hip feels “twingy” so I love these Tiger Balm Patches, because you can stick em on and go about your day and forget about it. They have all natural remedies and aren’t messy or greasy. You can wear em thru out your work day under your clothes or whatever.
