Sore Muscle Therapy

massage therapyLast Thursday I told you about the yoga class I attended Wednesday evening. People at the class told me I would be very sore on Thursday but I wasn’t and I attributed the lack of soreness to my Zumba classes because we use lots of muscle in there. I was still not sore all day Friday but I went to my Friday evening Zumba class and danced strenuously as I usually do. After my shower and then dinner, I sat down to watch a movie with my husband.

When the movie was over I could barely move my upper body. My neck, shoulders, back, arms, forearms and even my hands were extremely sore and I could not get comfortable at all. I iced those areas and then had my husband massage my back and upper extremities with an aromatherapy massage oil that we had on hand for just such occasions.  It contained 1 tablespoon of sweet almond oil, 20 drops of ginger, 5 drops black pepper essential oil and 5 drops nutmeg essential oil.
