How to Relieve Neck Pain using Meridian Massage
Neck pain acupoints
There are many causes of neck pain. Fortunately, there are some great acupoints that you can try using to relieve the pain. Below are my “go to acupressure points” that I use for relieving neck pain.
- Gallbladder 20
- Gallbladder 21*
- Bladder 10
- Bladder 31, 32, 33, 34*
Meridian Massage approach to neck pain
Combine gentle, moving contact to the acupoints listed above with massage along the entire Bladder meridian. This approach is not a guarantee, but it is a great protocol to begin with. Experiment by massaging the Bladder meridian first, then by contacting the points and vice versa. As you develop your expertise, you will know what works best for each individual seeking your help.
Sometimes neck pain is so severe that you cannot touch the neck at all.
In this case, you can still help relieve the pain by massaging the Bladder meridian on the back, legs, and sacrum (Bladder 31, 32, 33, 34).
Try this method along with what you already know to get better, pain-relieving results. I’d love to hear about your experience using these points – please use the comment box below to share your results.
