A neck massage can be given while the subject sits in a comfortable chair or lies face down on a massage table. Sit in a comfortable, low-low-back chair to give yourself a neck massage. Grab the trapezius muscle (the sloping muscle that runs from the neck to the shoulders) with the opposite hand's thumb and finger. Massage the muscles gently from the shoulders to the neck. Repeat on the other side. This procedure should be repeated several times. Then, using both hands' fingers, gently massage the neck from the base of the neck to the head. Rep this procedure until you are completely relaxed and pain-free.
