Neck and shoulder pain are common. Some people experience only neck pain or only shoulder pain, while others experience pain in both areas. In order to release the stress on neck and shoulder muscle, we can stimulate the acupressure pints on both neck and shoulder. Please see the attached point chart. We can use handheld massager to put the ball on those points. Stay there for 5 minutes each. You will feel the big difference after the treatment. It is not hard to do by ourselves.
