It’s 3pm, time has flown while you have been brainstorming in front of your computer, and then it strikes. That all-too-familiar spasm in your neck is back, and ready for some pain giving action.
Why do you get neck spasms?
Your neck takes quite a bit of strain, it has to hold up your head which is a good 5kg’s, look here, look there, bend down, look up, it’s hard work. A day just doesn’t allow a daily neck massage (until now that is..), and the lack of attention to this structure will then accumulate more and more tension. No wonder the untimely spasm strikes.
What is a muscle spasm?
Muscle spasms or muscle cramps, are involuntary contractions of muscle. These occur suddenly, usually resolve quickly, and are often quite painful. Muscle spasms can occur in various muscle groups, the most common being those of the neck, back, hamstrings and calve muscles.
What causes Muscle spasms?
May factors play a role, but tension, injury, sudden “jerk-type” movements, and lack off stretching can set you up for an attack if you are not careful. Lifestyle, exercise and stress levels of course can also influence the occurrence.
Reasons muscle spasms occur:
• Poor blood circulation to the muscle group.
• Overexertion whilst exercising.
• Insufficient stretching before exercise.
• Exercising in the heat.
• Muscle fatigue.
• Magnesium and/or potassium deficiency.
• Calcium deficiency.
How do you treat a muscle spasm?
With the Bellabaci Genie and Cupping system of course! The quick application of the Aches and Pains Get Lost Genie, combined with placing two soft cups, on either side of your neck next to the vertebrae, for just a few minutes, will immediately bring relief as it resolves the supply of fresh oxygen and nutrient- containing blood to the area. End off with a few circular movements for deep relaxation and relief, and you will be spasm free before your coffee gets cold. FYI – Excessive caffeine intake can also contribute to a sudden serious spasm, so try switching half of your daily intake to decaf or herbal tea for starters!
