The most common causes of neck stiffness and pain are physical or postural stresses, over exertion, emotional stress, and prolonged exposure to cold and damp. The result is a blockage of blood flow and energy in the area. Next time you feel pain or stiffness in the neck try the following points along with a couple of simple stretches. If your condition persists see a healthcare professional. You can also do this routine as regularly for prevention.
Gall Bladder 20 (GB20) – is one of the major points for all head and neck conditions. To find GB 20 start at your spine just under the base of your skull. Run four finger along the underside of your skull passing over the large bump formed by your spinal muscles. GB20 is in the soft depression right after the bump.
Gall Bladder 21 (GB21) – is a good point that helps relax muscles and tendons. It can be found right on the highest point of your shoulder mound.
