Want to keep repetitive stress injuries at bay. Spoiler alert: It involves a healthy dose of movement, stretching, and massage. (Even self massage)
Take charge of your neck and shoulder health! With a little help from the magic of massage and some mindful lifestyle adjustments, you’ll bid farewell to those pesky aches and pains.
Start by gently kneading the muscles at the base of your skull with your fingertips, using circular motions. Move down to your neck, using your palms or thumbs to apply gentle pressure and smooth strokes along the sides.
Another technique involves using a tennis ball or foam roller against a wall or the floor to target those hard-to-reach areas on your shoulder and back. Simply lean into the ball or roller, applying steady pressure to release tension. Remember to listen to your body, adjust the pressure to your comfort level, and breathe deeply as you massage away the pain.
