RE: Stiff Neck and Shoulders

http://www.youtube.com/omgseriouslywtf: I have been looking all over the internet, and actually stumbled upon your youtube channel while looking for an answer to my question.

my neck and upper back are very very tense. i can feel hard painful lumps up the back of my neck, and i was just wondering are these tense muscles that could be making me feel this way? my first thought was ‘omg i have cancer! these large lumps are cancer!’ but then i decided to try and be more rational about the situation haha

i have an anxiety disorder, so i am stressed a lot. i’ve never gotten a massage before, but my doctor did say my upper back muscles were VERY tense. like rock hard. i’m wondering if there’s something i can do about this on my own? my posture isn’t very good either.

how likely do you think the stress/anxiety and bad posture are to blame for this? what can i do? :/

thanks in advance for your help.

    Simple yet effective. I wake every day with a stiff neck (mostly due to
    bodybuilding) and this really helps. The lady is very beautiful too.

    what do u do when you have done these exercises and you hear
    cracking/poping sound in the rhomboid area, what does this mean? I feel
    pain in my rhomboids and tightness 360 degrees around my neck. Do you know
    if this could be a sign of something else and what it could be?

    Also, muscle flexing helps reduce stress. I have an anxiety disorder myself
    and tightening my muscles in certain areas for a few seconds, then
    releasing feels relaxing. Consult a doctor first though before you do it.
    I’m not a doctor. 🙂

    @KDyounggreezy consult a doctor or book acupuncture treatment.

    You stated that you have a malignant tumor in your neck and that your
    doctor is not to worried about it. That type of tumor is cancer. You
    probably ment benign tunor.

    Thank you for posting this, it really helped me out

  17. Jolly Walia March 8, 2015 1:49 pm

    Simple and good, it really helps, thank you.

    Sometimes the smallest things can reduce stress. Like writing down how
    you’re feeling.. Venting. If you’re on the computer, go nuts typing and
    typing. You’ll feel some sense of relief by pouring out what you’re
    feeling. It’s also good if you don’t have someone readily available to talk
    to.

    to the original poster: I am a massage student and I never knew how much
    professional Bodywork can really help until I started practicing and being
    practiced on. I also have anxiety problems [mild PTSD] and while receiving
    massage may help reduce stress and improve your sleep [works for me every
    time] you need to be prepared to let go of certain things emotionally. You
    store your pain in your body by the way you hold yourself so once that is
    released, the emotions will follow.

    Wow !! It worked, I never knew it would be so easy. Keep posting good
    videos. God bless you.
