Better luck neck time

In TCM, a stiff neck is caused by the impeded flow of Qi & Blood in the meridians, or a deficiency in the meridians. Massage these acupoints to stop waking up with a sore neck! TIP: Acupuncture, cupping and scrapping help relieve pain and improve flow. Feng Chi [GB-20] is found in the depression between 2 major muscles at the back of the neck, at the base of the skull. This point dispels wind pathogenic factors that block meridians and improves local Qi & Blood circulation. Jian Jing [GB-21] is found on the shoulder, between the bony prominence of the neck and the acromion. Use your thumb to massage or your entire hand to pinch and lift the muscle. This point dispels wind and improves local circulation. Wai Lao Gong [EX-UE-8] is found on the back of the hand, between the second and third fingers, 0.5 cun behind the knuckle. Turn your neck left and right, up and down slowly as you massage. This point improves Qi & Blood flow in the neck. This is just a general guide. In TCM, there is rarely a one-size-fits-all solution. Even for people with the same condition, their prescriptions are likely to be different due to different root cause and body constitution. For a more detailed diagnosis and treatment advice, consult a registered TCM physician from Eu Yan Sang TCM Clinic or Wellness Clinic. #EuYanSangTCMClinic #TCM #TraditionalChineseMedicine #acupuncture #acupointmassage #StiffNeck #SelfCare #Meridianpoints
