How To Manage Neck Pain?

Managing Neck Pain

Upper body pain can come on suddenly and be hard to treat. So if you want to learn more about how to manage the discomfort by understanding important massage tips and other health tricks in this article. This area is a leading cause of pain for so many reasons, resulting from the fact that it is one of the most nerve-packed areas on our body (our neck and shoulders). 

As a result, and in order to treat the issue and prevent future problems, we need to address root causes and identify stress patterns that contribute to this discomfort. So let’s get started understanding why neck pain is so prevalent by continuing on.

Managing Neck Pain Can Be Complex

Neck tension and shoulder pain may be indicative of more than just one of the following issues: a muscle imbalance, improper spine alignment, or even stress. Because of that, understanding how these can affect your neck is important to identifying and working through the underlying source of your problem. The neck and shoulder muscles are complex and interconnected, so it is difficult to identify an exact point of origin for an area that is experiencing chronic pain.


Do Emotions Affect How We Manage Neck Pain?

In order to heal this issue, we have to look beyond just the symptoms. People with neck pain may suffer from emotional issues or live with a chronic emotional burden. Think about it, do you spend too much time curled up in front of your phone or at your desk at work?


 In fact, sitting at a computer or slumping at the TV may be a symptom of a deeper underlying issue for humanity that we may or may not realize yet. Pain in this part of the body can be related to our difficulty to speak up when we need to, or even social anxiety. 

With the advent of social media, this has become even more apparent.



How To Manage Neck Pain Permanently?

In today’s world, it is important to maintain both physical and mental well-being. 

Unfortunately, these are two areas are often compromised: Lack of movement and sitting for long periods of time. 


For that reason, necks are no exception to this rule as they are a vital part in supporting our body weight and moving through space. For permanent results, following a treatment plan, changing your lifestyle habits and posture is essential!

How To Manage and Heal Neck Pain?

We advocate self healing with natural solutions such as Yoga, meditation, dancing and singing that help the throat chakra open and neck mobility increase. Massage, acupuncture, chiropractic physical therapy, cupping, thai massage, and other forms of therapy can also decrease the inflammation caused by this condition and and physically assist the body in recovering from this issue.

    Mason is awesome! I just had an amazing massage experience and loved it. He attentively addressed the tension spots in my body and worked through them. The massage table vibrates synced up to the meditative music which was sooo relaxing … More and helped me be super dropped into the moment. The weighted blanket and the warm scented towels were another highlight. Highly recommend. Thank you, Mason!

    Wow! My massage with Mason was healing on so many levels! He addressed the spots of tension and diligently worked to remind my muscles that it’s okay to relax. He was very attentive to my needs and comfort.
    Immerse is definitely an appropriate
    … More name for this space as you are enveloped in delightfully warm infrared heat (through amethyst crystals!), the soothing sounds of a waterfall, and a sound bath of vibrations coming directly from the table!
    The thoughtful intention put in to making Immerse Modern Massage the healing environment that is it is apparent and very much appreciated!

    Such a lovely experience from beginning to end. The lobby was beautifully decorated with plants, and Mason greeted me with such warmth. The table vibrates with music and is so comfortable and warm. The weighted blankets helped me feel so … More cozy and relaxed. The technique and grounded presence Mason offers is excellent. I especially enjoyed the warm scented towel on my face and neck at the end of the massage. So rejuvenating and relaxing. I felt calm and peaceful. Wholeheartedly recommend!

    Wow! Walking into Immerse Modern Massage, my entire body immediately relaxed right at the front door. The aromatherapy is so intoxicating and soothing, and the ambiance is very nice. Walking into the treatment room was even better. They … More really did such a good job with the place! Not to mention the massage table! Omg, it felt so incredible to be sandwiched in between healing frequencies, warmth, and high vibrations. I can’t wait to go back!!! I was impressed to say the least.

    Entering the space I immediately felt calm, the lighting and ambiance was perfect for relaxing. The warmth, low light and wooden ceiling made me feel like I was in a sauna. Mason greeted me and made me feel comfortable as we entered the … More massage room. The bed was heated, with weighted blanket and calming music vibrated the entire bed. I melted away as mason massaged my whole body, taking care to leave me mostly covered under the warm blanket the entire time. He also used heated towels and a wonderful essential oil blend. I felt truly relaxed and my whole body vibrated with warmth and comfort. Would definitely come back again!
