If you experience persistent pain you should discuss with your doctor what sort of therapy would be best.

Let's say you worked out hard and you know that's why your body is achy.  Did you know some experts recommend taking an ice cold bath?  Maybe you have a pulled muscle or experiencing swelling, this is really what is recommended. 

Lactic acid and toxins settle in our muscles, when we work out and stir up the acid and toxins we feel pain.  A cold bath will constrict blood vessels reducing this pain.   Some people will even dump ice in their bath!!

Not what you wanted to hear, right?!?

If you don't want a cold bath and your pain is isolated, try an ice pack for a day or two to reduce swelling - then you'll be ready to try these baths for sore muscles.  If you're ready to jump into a hot bath now, let's get started!!

Use one or two tennis balls in the bathtub to massage sore, tight muscles.

Evening Baths - Baths for sore muscles can make you feel tired and even flu like symptoms because your body could be detoxing, especially if you're using salt.  (this is a good thing!) 

Drink a glass of water and best to call it a night.  Do not rinse off, you want to retain the minerals and nutrients from the water that is absorbed through your skin.

Don't Forget To - Take a big glass of cold water with you.   It's a great time to meditate, read a book, listen to music, whatever makes your bath more enjoyable and relaxing.
