Make sure you are in a quiet location where you'll be undisturbed for a few minutes. Take a moment to focus on exactly where the aches and pains are in your neck.
Interlace your fingers behind your head leaving your thumbs free and pointing towards your neck.
Place one thumb along the each side of the spinal column at the base of your neck and press the pads of the thumbs into the long muscles along the side of your neck.
Press firmly in deep slow circles. Do about eight circles in each spot and then move the thumb pads up to a new position. Continue until you reach the top of your neck.
Place the pads of your thumbs above your ears with your palms pressed lightly to the side of your head.
Apply slow and even pressure along your natural hairline until your thumbs meet at the back of your head.
Make little circles with your thumb pads as you move them along your hairline and back to their original position. Repeat as many times as desired.
