Suffer from Neck Pain? Types of Massage That Can Help

Do you suffer from ongoing neck pain?

It’s usually caused by something simple, like hunching over your computer, neck pain is a common problem in the USA. Neck pain ranks in the top 5 disorders in the United States, with 10-20% of people reporting incidents of neck pain.

While there are many ways to ease neck pain, massage therapy is one of the most reliable methods to reduce tension and prevent it from coming back.

Whether it's chronic or acute, here are two types of massages that can alleviate neck pain.

Cupping Massage

The cup suctions the skin up, causing vasodilation of the blood vessels and increased blood flow to the area. Some of the therapeutic functions and conditions treated with cupping include: alleviating pain (especially chronic neck, shoulder and low back pain) accelerating healing.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue to unlock chronic and injury-related pains caused by tension and stress. Since continuous movement, such as looking down at a computer daily, can create irritated tissue in the neck. When the muscles stay in a contracted state for an extended period, they can harden and form small nodules that massage therapists can feel during the massage. The massage can ease pain and tension while increasing range of motion.

Traditionally designed to apply pressure to layers of muscle, tendons and other tissues deep under the skin, deep tissue massage can be beneficial in relieving problem areas and is highly therapeutic. Deep tissue massage is generally a modality to consider for athletes as well as the 9-to-5 desk job. Muscles easily become tense and deep tissue massage can relieve some chronic patterns of pain and tension, specifically in the back, shoulder and neck areas.

Along with relieving neck pain, receiving regular monthly massages can help keep your joints limber and relaxed. It also improves your posture, flexibility and range of motion, which can help prevent any future neck issues.
