Tips for Sciatica from your Massage Therapist

Posted by | May 15, 2017 .


Your Massage Therapist, Marguerite Wright
(I’m located in Homewood, IL)


Pain from Sciatica is no joke. I’ve had several clients come to me seeking help of massage therapy. I have offered Trigger point therapy to break up the knot in the Piriformis muscle that goes over the sciatica nerve, the longest nerve in the body. This helps to relieve the pain that radiates down the leg from the buttock. Stretching is also very important. I try and share some good stretches to do along with using a tennis ball. (See YouTube below…)


(These are suggested essential oils and supplements for educational purposes. I recommend you review with your health-care practitioner.)


Essential oils to use to massage the area by adding a few drops to a base oil  include:

  • Peppermint oil
  • Lavender oil
  • Lemon oil

Supplements and natural products I suggest are:

  • HERBAL CA – To absorb calcium and magnesium
  • KAVA KAVA – 2-4 daily as a natural muscle relaxant
  • MSM known to enhance cell renewal
  • NONI JUICE is a natural pain killer


I invite you to shop at my online herb shop: for the essential oils and natural supplements mentioned above.


A good Chiropractor can help give relief with adjustments to help align the body.
