We all have times of stress that create tension in our neck and shoulders. When stress visits you, try these simple solutions to loosen the muscles of your neck and shoulders.
Take a hairbrush that has strong bristles and tap your shoulders in a steady rhythm until you feel more relaxed. The bristles on the hairbrush are like prongs that can break up congested energy.
Standing, with your arms stiffened and down the sides of your body, make fists and lift your shoulders high, while rolling your head back and to each side. Repeat this half-circle motion for 15 to 20 seconds a few times each day. You are giving your neck and shoulders a natural massage that softens the knots, breaks up calcium deposits and frees energy to move through the area.
