"Help! My neck is feeling stiff, which acupoint can I massage for some temporary self relief?"

PRESSWHEREHUH: For Stiff Neck 落枕

ACUPOINT:

后溪 (Hou Xi, SI3)

How to locate the Acupoint:

When the fist is half closed, the point is located in a depression proximal to the head of the fifth metacarpal bone, at the junction of the light and dark skin.

第五掌指关节近端尺侧凹陷中,皮肤深浅两色交界处。简便取穴:半握拳,掌纹末端凸起后方,皮肤深浅两色交界处.

Steps:

1. Massage the “Lao Zhen” point on the opposite side of the body where the neck pain is located. If the left side of your neck hurts, massage the point on your right hand.
2. Massage the point with the tip of your finger till you feel soreness. Maintain that pressure while rotating your finger on the point.
3. Gently rotate your neck left and right while stimulating the acupoint. You should slowly begin to notice a decrease in neck pain and a slight increase in your range of motion.

1.按揉健侧的落枕穴,例如左侧颈项疼痛,则按揉右侧落枕穴。
2. 以指尖按揉穴位直至有酸胀感,以相同指力持续揉动穴位。
3. 按揉穴位的同时,颈部向左右方向轻柔地来回转动。此时应可察觉颈部疼痛有所缓解,以及颈部可活动范围有所改善。
