What are the pressure points to relieve neck pain?


There are many pressure points that can be used to treat a neck pain and there are many conditions that caused a neck pain. Pressure points need to be used according to the condition diagnosed to receive the maximum effect. We sometimes use a technique called shiatsu to treat the pain.

Causes of Neck Pain:

  • Stress
  • Awkward sleeping position
  • An accident that caused a whiplash
  • Neck sprain
  • Strain caused by overexertion of the neck


  • Stimulating the acupressure points helps to release all the stress and tension in the area being massaged.
  • As soon as you release the pressure from the acupoints, you will experience a reduction of the symptoms.
  • Acupressure involves slow, rhythmic, and deep breathing, which helps to decrease stress as well.


Acute neck pain is typically caused by tight muscles. A muscle becomes sore or tight when it is enduring some form of physical or mental stress. The normal cycle of contraction and relaxation becomes affected inducing a restriction of the normal blood flow to the area. Acupressure and acupuncture can help resolve those issues.
