How to massage your own neck
This week I’m going to show 3 ways to massage your own neck.
1) The first one is massaging the base of the skull. Locate the base of the skull between the ears. Grab your own head, hook your thumbs and make small circles on the base of the skull. Move side to side to massage different spots. Your neck muscles attach to the base of the skull and often people don’t know this area is very tight. It helps to loosen the attachment site to loosen the neck muscles.
2) The second one is Crack the Nut. Weave your fingers behind your neck and squeeze the neck muscles with the base of your thumbs. Go up and down the neck.
3) The third one is Ice Pick Neck. Weave your fingers except your thumbs and squeeze the neck muscles with the tip of your thumbs. Try different width and go up and down the neck. You can target more specific spots.
