I want to introduce Easy Self-care for Lower Back pain for about 3 minutes every day to take care of lower back pain.
Have you been suffering from back pain for a long time?
Lower back pain is one of the most common disorders that people in the united states suffer.
Unfortunately, 31 million Americans experience pain in the lower back at any time of their life.
If you are one of them, you should try to massage this acupressure point to release the pain instantly.
Acupuncture is oriental medicine using acupuncture needles.
It originated in ancient China based on the acupoints’ principle across the meridians, correcting the imbalance between Qi.
Acupuncture/acupressure points are everywhere in the human body.
More than 360 points are in the human body, and these dots are connected.
Acupuncture points are like the train station, and the meridians are like railroads.
Qi or energy is the train. When you are healthy, the train is running all the time, 24/7.
However, if you are sick or injured, the train stopped causing pain or other body symptoms.
Activation of specific points on the meridians is known to reduce pain at the local sites.

How to Self-Care for Lower Back Pain by using Acupressure?
To release the lower back pain, you have to relax the SI joint.
This SI joint attached much external rotation muscle, including gluteal muscles.
And it plays a significant role in rotating the pelvis.
However, once this joint gets tight up and won’t move your pelvis correctly, it ends up tightening up Lower back muscles, causing the pain.
There is an acupressure point to release the SI joint, which is GB25.
GB25 is one of the most important acupuncture points to Self-Care for Lower Back Pain because it can release the SI joint and QL muscle. It is just below the 12th rib.
When you put your hands on your waist, your thumb should be at GB25.
I want you to do these 4 steps every day. It is very easy and you can feel the release instantly.
- You can press and hold the point for 10 seconds as you breathe in.
- Tilt your body to the right as you breathe out.
- Do the same thing to the left.
- Repeat it ten times a day.
1. You can press and hold the GB25
2. Tilt your body to the right as you breathe out.
3. Do the same thing to the left.
4. Repeat this massage and exercise 10 times a day. It takes about 3 minutes a day. I hope it helps to release your lower back pain.
Chinese Herbs for Lower Back Pain
If this acupressure massage is not working for you, you should conder taking Chinese herbs. There are several Chinese herbs that would work for lower back pain.
Self-Care for Lower Back Pain is important not only externally, but also internally.
First, I want you to check these questions.
Do you have lower back pain?
Do you have frequent urination?
When you touch your lower back, do you feel cold to touch?
Are you tired all the time?
If you have lower back pain with these other symptoms, these are the signs of Kidney Deficiency from traditional Chinese medicine.
In that case, you have to boost up the kidney energy which is the cause of your lower back pain.
Jin Gui Shen Qi Wan

Jin Gui Shen Qi Wan helps to warm the lower back to reduce pain. This formula also boosts your energy.
The primary ingredient is Rehmannia. Rehmannia is one of the best single Chinese herbs to restore kidney and adrenal gland function as an adaptogen.
It is thought to nourish blood and tonify the essence of the Kidney.
This herb soothes stress and gives energy, and even restores the immune systems as well.
It is often prepared in combination with other botanicals, including Licorice Root, Ashwagandha, and vitamin C.
In conclusion, massaging GB25 is the effective Self-Care for Lower Back Pain.
Please try and massage the point for 3 minutes every day.
If the massaging acupressure point isn’t working, then you can try to take the Chinese herb, Jin Gui Shen Qi Wan. One of the major ingredients, Rehmannia is one of the best single Chinese herbs to restore kidney and lower back pain.
