So many people call me about pains in their neck. Literal pains. Sometimes there is hardly any range of motion before I start working. Neck work is slow, deep, precise. I usually start with the client in a prone position, or lying down …. So I can loosen the traps, rhomboids, lats, levator scapula …. Then focus on stretching all the muscles around the cervical spine, ie. the sterno clydo mastoids, the occipital muscles … and loosen the prior muscles from a different angle. Massaging the neck hurts my fingers and hands, but it’s some of my favorite work.
