How to naturally get rid of neck and shoulder pain
We’ve all spent too much time in the same position at least once of twice before. Either as zombies sitting in front of the computer, leaning over a work table like The Hunchback of Notre Dame, or simply sleeping in a bad position. But it’s not until the stabbing pain starts, that we realize we’ve made a serious mistake.
We feel a slight pain in the lower part of the neck, we stretch our shoulders back trying to scare away the pain, little by little the pain becomes more annoying, we massage the area with our fingers hoping it will help. But who are we kidding? None of this will make the pain go away.
Neck and shoulder pain is one of the most frequent kind. It is estimated that 7 out of 10 people have suffered from neck pain or stiffness, so don’t worry, you’re not alone.
One thing that many people ignore is that the neck is the most fragile area of the spine. Its vertebrae are very vulnerable, since they support and allow the rotation of the head, which weighs around 10 to 11 pounds. You probably started appreciating your neck more after learning this, right?
The pain appears after holding your head in the same position for long periods of time (driving for hours also counts). We usually begin to feel tension when we turn our head to the sides which can trigger headaches and pain in the shoulders and arms.
These are some of the most common causes of neck and shoulder pain, so from now on you correct yourself every time you catch yourself doing one of them:
- Bad sleeping postures.
- Bad sitting positions.
- Bad movements, while lifting too much weight or playing sports.
- Leaving your head tilted back for a long time.
- Muscle injuries after accidents.
- Improper and prolonged use of cell phones, tablets and laptops.
Text Neck syndrome
If you feel identified with this last one, you may be suffering from Text Neck syndrome without even knowing. A study published by CBS News indicates that we spend two to four hours with our necks tilted due to cell phone use.
Text Neck Syndrome is an illness caused by tilting the neck forward repeatedly or for a long time while texting or simply scrolling while scrolling through Instagram.
The Text neck illness may be the cause of your poor posture, neck stiffness, and neck, shoulder and back pain.
the most common types of pain
Before teaching you how to treat neck and shoulder pain, we show you some of the most common types of pain. This way you can identify yours and find the appropiate solution for it.
– Muscle pain manifests itself in response to overexertion, or due to some kind of emotional or physical stress.
– Muscle spasm is the hardening of the neck muscles, usually detected when you wake up with the neck so rigid that moving your head a little causes pain.
– The headache associated with the neck is the one you feel in the lower part of the head, it causes sensitivity and stiffness in the head and neck area.
– Nerve pain comes from irritation of the spinal nerves; it is usually severe and is accompanied by twinges in the upper back.
Now that you can identify your type of pain, it’s time to know when to treat it.
Why is it important to know when to treat pain?
The calmer your body is, the greater and longer-lasting the effects you can achieve will be.
In our everyday lives we have our hours are counted; the household chores, work, family, romantic life, social life, but rarely one of those hours is destined only for us, and that is why we fill ourselves with the stress that eventually takes begins to take its toll on our body.
When we feel the intensity of pain we want to make it go away as soon as possible, so we take some analgesics, but almost always the pain reappears because we repeat the actions that caused it and get filled with stress again.
It is difficult to heal definitively when we don’t correct what is causing the pain, just like a wound that cannot heal because we keep touching it.
That is why there is no doubt that the best time to treat pain as common as the neck and shoulders one, is during a well-deserved vacation.
Getting out of the routine, disconnecting and taking a moment for ourselves will allow our body to heal at its own pace and achieve longer-lasting effects.
There is the perfect place to treat your neck and shoulders pain while you’re on vacation. Imagine lying on the beach, feeling the sun on your skin, with a beautiful view and the sound of the sea in the background. Do you know the place we are talking about?

– Self-massage, why not?
Apply lavender oil (or body lotion) over the fingers of your left hand, then put it under your ear, on the right side of your neck and massage down towards your collarbone, repeat three times and then change sides.
You can also apply rosemary oil and gently massage the area in circles.

Ice packs are effective in reducing inflammation and improving blood flow.
Crush ice cubes and put them inside a bag or towel, then place them on your neck and shoulders for 5 to 10 minutes and voilà, goodbye inflammation.
Making slow movements in circles with your head helps stretch tight muscles. Move your neck slowly back and forth, do several repetitions and then from side to side, you will see that with each repetition it gets easier, but try not to force the movement if the pain is intense, you don’t want to hurt yourself.

I. What is a Lymphatic Drainage?
It's essential to have a good understanding of what the lymphatic system is and what it does. It’s a complex network of vessels and tissues that work together to remove waste and toxins from the body, regulate fluid balance, and support the immune system.
But wait, there’s more! It plays a critical role in maintaining the health and functioning of many other systems in the body. The lymphatic vessels are responsible for carrying lymph, a clear fluid that contains white blood cells and other immune system components, throughout the body. The lymph nodes, located at various points along the lymphatic vessels, act as filters, trapping bacteria, viruses, and other harmful substances, and allowing the immune system to destroy them.
If you're considering a lymphatic drainage session, you may wonder what to expect during the massage.
Depending on your specific health concerns, the massage can focus on particular areas of the body where lymphatic congestion is an issue, such as the legs or arms.
Lymphatic drainage is a massage technique that stimulates the lymphatic system to promote the movement of lymph fluid throughout the body. This technique uses gentle, rhythmic strokes to push the lymph toward the lymph nodes, which can be filtered and processed more efficiently.
Looking for a lymphatic drainage experience like no other? Clinical Massage Aruba & Spa offers the best one to meet your health needs.
Hang tight and learn about the benefits of this treatment.

Curious about what will happen next? You will feel relaxed after 60 minutes as the parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated during the session. This massage can also help balance fluids and remove toxins from the body, so it’s normal to feel an increased need to urinate. With the powerful detoxification effect also comes increased energy and mental clarity.
Whether you want to improve your physical health or simply relax and unwind, this technique is worth considering.

Have you ever felt like you're carrying a heavy burden around you, both physically and emotionally? No worries! A Lymphatic Drainage can help you feel renewed and energetic.
