Pressure points for stiff neck


What is stiff neck ?

Stiff neck is caused by muscles supporting head and around that are stressed. That stressed muscles bring bad blood flow and accumulate wastes in muscles, which causes lack of oxygen and nutrition for cells. If that condition lasts it causes pain. This is the mechanism of stiff-neck.


Main factors of stiff neck

1Over stressed muscle

To solve this type of factor, give pressures to specific acupuncture points. As for the maintenance better to have exercise therapy like stretching, jogging. 



If the stiff neck’s main factor is eyestrain, just having exercise therapy cannot be enough to solve the problems. Better to massage around eyes and acupuncture points. The purpose to give pressures to acupuncture points is to remove stress from muscle around eyes.
