Neck Massage to Eliminate Headaches

Neck Massage to Eliminate Headaches

Moriah Diederich, Yoga Mojo

Holistic Yoga Therapist™, RYT500, Accessible Yoga Ambassador

Neck massages are blissful.

As much as it would be lovely to go see a professional massage therapist every week, it’s not very practical. So, how can you give yourself a neck massage to release all that tension?

If you suffer from headaches or just carry a lot of tension in your neck, learn how to use therapy balls to relieve pain and increase range of motion to better turn your head. Because you deserve a neck massage whenever you want it.

I highly recommend the Tune-up Therapy Balls featured in this video, as they can be used to roll out just about everywhere you have tension! But if you’re in need of a neck massage right now and don’t have these, you can use two racket or tennis balls – something that has a little give to them. In other words, I don’t recommend using golf or lacrosse balls – these are too hard and will probably end up giving you a headache!

So what are you waiting for? Go give yourself that much needed neck massage!

In this video I demonstrate how easy it is to give yourself a tension-releasing neck massage. If you don’t have a set of Tune-up Therapy Balls, use two racket balls or tennis balls in a sock.
