Stress Relief Points for Shoulder & Neck Tension

I have used Acupressure for almost 50 years now and helped tens of thousands relieve shoulder and neck muscular tension and stress related disorders.

Acupressure points are especially effective for managing stress and dealing with common health problems and ailments that get worse under stress.

In this article, you’ll learn four potent Acupressure points for releasing shoulder tension and neck pain to counteract your stress wherever you live. Here’s more info with illustrations of these four empowering stress relief points.

Chronic Shoulder & Neck Tensions from common stress conditions can cause poor circulation and neuro-muscular problems. I’ve found the following Acupressure points extremely effective for relieving hundreds of stress related health problems and imbalances.
 
GB 21 is on the top of the shoulders, two finger widths out from the outside base of your neck. This stress relief Acupressure point is where you have the most tension in your trapezius muscles on the top of your shoulders.
 
I find it easiest to use my opposite hand to press this point. First feel for the tension on the top of your shoulders by firmly rubbing to feel for the tightest spot. Then curve your fingers to hook the weight of your arm into this stress relief point.

Special Neck Pain Points:
B 10, GB 20, GV 16

B 10 is on the back of your neck, just one thumb width down from you skull, and one thumb width out from the center of your spine on your upper neck. This Acupressure point is good for hormonal balance, since it benefits the thyroid gland. Use firm, prolonged pressure on B 10.

 
GB 20 is located in the hollows underneath the base of your skull, about 3 to 4 inches apart, depending on the size of your body. This great Acupressure point further releases shoulder pain, neck stiffness, and tension headaches.
 
GV 16 is located in the center of the base of the skull, in a large hollow called the medulla. This point is good for relieving neck pain and calms the central nervous system.
 
These Acupressure points should be held for 2 to 3 minutes with firm finger pressure several times daily. This can release your chronic and acute tensions in the shoulder and neck region of your body.
