Get your neck pain sorted.

Working on computers and staring down at our smartphones for hours each day can lead to a stiff neck and pain. A stiff neck is usually the result of postural issues that have tired the neck muscles over time. Weakened, or unbalanced, muscle strength can place additional stress on your spinal joints and lead to changes in how you move, how you sleep, affecting your overall well-being.

Soft tissue therapy is actually successful in releasing tension and chronic pain. This method uses deeper pressure to reach all layers of the muscles and connective tissues. Releasing tension is the first step to get rid of your stiff neck, mobility and strengthening exercises you can do at home will support you further. 

Tips to relieve your stiff neck:
Move: shrug and rotate your shoulders regularly. Rotate your head slowly, bring your chin to the chest, your ears to the shoulders and tilt your chin up to the ceiling.
Drink enough water: our body needs water to lubricate movements 
Have regularly breaks: try to get a short break every hour and combine movement and drinking water
Have a hot bath or use a heat pack or hot water bottle: heat increases blood circulation and relaxes tight muscles 
Stretch: think about cats or dogs, they stretch every time when they get up, without plan or timer. If it feels nice – they carry on. If it hurts, they stop.
Book a soft massage appointment!
