Acupressure For Shoulder and Neck Pain

If you ever get minor shoulder and neck pain, here’s a great self massage tip that might just help.

There’s a small area just between your wrist and “pinky” bone that Chinese body workers have named “Small Intestine #4.”  According to ancient Chinese acupressure theory, pressing on SI 4 can help relieve stiffness in the head and neck and help relieve shoulder pain.

On most people this area of the wrist is a little tender, so be careful to use light pressure.  Press and hold for about 30 seconds.
