To continue the 12 Days of Facial Massage video series, we’re moving on to work on the neck. I know, I know, what are we still doing on the neck? Well, as I mentioned yesterday, the neck’s connections to the scalp, face and jaw directly affect the tension, flexibility and range of motion of the face.
Today, we’ll look at some basic work on the middle and upper trapezius muscle and work on the cervical erectors – those muscles that hold our heads up throughout the day.
Some of the muscle attachments directly overlap the muscles on the face, and thus loosening and relaxing them will open up and relax the face. Plus, it just feels great and your partner will love it. If you want to back up to see the first video, you can take a peek at it here: http://blog.massagebyheather.com/12-days-of-facial-massage-part-1/
