Massage is the rubbing and kneading of muscles and joints of the body with the hands, especially to relieve tension or pain.
I do deep tissue massage on my back (especially upper back neck area). Highly recommend, decrease headaches and increase consentration because it increases blood flow to my head.
Really amazing to help the neck relax and release tension. My neck was super tight from the whiplash so this helped blood flow go up to my brain.
These were great with releasing tension in my neck from whip lash. It was from my traps up to the splenius capitis. She used plastic tools that I can't remember the name but I called them scrappers and that was a great method with whip lash.
