How to Relieve Neck Pain with Self-Massage Techniques

Neck pain is a common complaint, with estimates showing that between 30 and 50% of adults experience it at least once a year. Fortunately, self-massage techniques can help to calm and relax tense neck muscles, thus relieving symptoms. Before starting the massage, it is important to be aware that you should start carefully and wait for your body to respond to each massage. If the massage is uncomfortable or too rough, it is recommended to reduce the intensity.

To experience the calming effects of a neck massage, most people don't need the massage to be vigorous. To begin, stretch your neck and back and locate the painful areas in the neck. Press firmly with your fingers and gently move your fingers in circular motions. You can also release tense neck muscles by massaging them yourself.

When massaging the neck, it is usually applied to the neck, shoulders and back since all these regions are connected. There are numerous types of massages, with variations in techniques, movements and pressure applied with the hands and other methods. Massage therapy generally involves using the hands to manipulate soft tissues, such as muscles and tendons, to increase blood circulation, reduce muscle tension and promote a sense of better well-being. Deep tissue massage generally uses deeper movements and friction to work on deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues.

Pressing the trigger points (self-massaging the trigger point) can help release the tight muscle knots in the neck. To protect your fingers and ensure that the massage is pleasant, try to use the Trigger Fairy whenever possible and your fingers only when necessary. It is also important to note that leaving your phone constantly staring at your phone can cause enormous strain on your neck.
