It has been proven that the effect of a proper therapeutic massage is not only pronounced, but also for a very long time: the symptoms of osteochondrosis can go away for several months after the first course.

What methods are safe and harmless to our throat?

An effective method for cervical disease is self-massage, which requires a comfortable posture that can be taken in any comfortable chair. The movements start from the back and are stroking, shaking and squeezing.

At the beginning of the self-massage, the back area is worked out between the shoulder blades, then they move to the zone of the shoulder girdle and chest, which is located above the mammary glands. The massage shouldn't be painful. The more vigorous the movement, the fewer repetitions should be performed.

Next, we go directly to the neck region: in the direction from the back of the head, we run along the spine with both hands, then we massage the neck with squeezing movements, replacing it with tapping with the edge of the palm, which we use our brushes on both sidesthe spine and perform squeezing movements 3-4 times. Finish with petting the nape of the neck.
