Are you always needing a neck massage? Our lifestyles today are really not in favor of treating your neck well. No wonder we are getting frequent headaches or feeling cloudy and tired all the time. Part of the problem is technology, yes. The greater issue, however, is what we are doing about it. Learn how to treat yourself better in just a few minutes with our DIY Neck Massage and feel better for the long term.
Your neck takes a lot of strain. We are constantly looking down. Whether it’s your laptop, tablet or cellular phone, we are always busy with something. Social media has created an incline to adding to the strain your cervical vertebra is under. A recent survey states that the average mobile phone user spends 3 hours per day surfing the net or social media platforms.
Why having a neck massage daily is so important:
As soon as stiffness and pain set in, you will also experience a decrease in your range of motion. Looking to the left or right might not be as easy or pain-free. Left untreated, the condition can give rise to muscle spasms and a build up of acidic molecules. An increase in acidity causes your body’s natural repair process to kick in.
The area will pull fluid to the source of pain as it tries to neutralize the pH in the area. This is why you will always find fluid retention in an area of pain. An accumulation of the fluid can create a pressure-type feeling and before you know it, a headache sets in.
How can you treat your neck for pain and stiffness?
The solution here is to bring optimal blood flow to your neck. Cupping Massage is a great way to do this, especially when combined with a pain relief oil. The oil is necessary to allow the smooth glide of the cup, so make sure you apply something natural and good. We recommend the Bellabaci Aches and Pains Get Lost Genie. This pain-relief gel that turns into an oil on application contains a superb formula, targeted at bringing relief and comfort.
