12 Days of Facial Massage – Neck Massage Part 1

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/

    Hello,
    I really liked the 12 days of Facial Massage and my husband likes it too but is not inclined to do them on me. I’ve been trying to do the massage on myself but sometimes the hands get a little awkward and I just wanted to know if you could give advice as to how to do the massage correctly on oneself or maybe even a video of you doing the massage on yourself?
    Thank you
    Love all your videos!
