thanks for sharing
Fantastic. I've used acupressure since I heard about it.
One day, I had intense neck-shoulder pain and asked a friend to 'find the knot then press as hard as you can for 20 seconds.' After less than 10 seconds, she stopped so she wouldn't hurt me. While I could still feel the spot, I reached over with the other hand and pressed as hard as I could for over 20 seconds. Ahh the release.
Note: the first couple of times, there might be a weird momentary sensation.
We have a hot tub and infra-red sauna, they certainly help...
I also use a TENS unit and when I remember to put it on, it really does help the pain.
these are pretty good tips
Thank you for the information that you gave
Rest for sure!!
Self massage, especially on the shoulders, and stretching works.
I'll have to try some of these suggestions. I have TENS machine that may have to be taken out of the drawer.
