Massage of the collar zone of the cervical spine is not only relaxing, but also a healing procedure. When the neck muscles are relaxed, blood and lymph flow improves, and brain cells get the oxygen and trace elements faster. In a few sessions, you can relieve spasms in the cervical-collar zone and get rid of pain in the upper back and discomfort from muscle numbness. When brain cells for many years don’t receive enough oxygen and the elements they need, carried throughout the body by blood, headaches, dizziness, frequent fainting, blackouts appear. All these symptoms can be eliminated with a course of therapeutic massage of the cervical-collar zone. Also, the procedure will help get rid of pain in the cervical region, which often occurs with a sedentary lifestyle and lack of physical activity.
• Ischemic stroke. It occurs as a result of oxygen starvation of brain neurons that die if blood flow is not restored. Therapeutic massage of the upper back, neck and head can partially restore brain cells stunned as a result of a stroke. For recovery after a stroke, the regularity of therapy is very important – ideally, the procedure should be carried out daily.
• Migraine. One of the main causes of frequent headaches is spasm and hypertonicity of the muscles of the cervical region and the lower part of the skull. Massage causes an increase in the level of serotonin and endorphin in the blood, which are among the most effective pain-relieving neurotransmitters. In addition, improved blood circulation in the cervical region also significantly reduces pain. Patients with regular migraines participating in clinical trials noted a long-term positive effect: the attacks didn’t return for several months after the session.
• Osteochondrosis. Doctors recommend using massage of the cervical-collar zone as an addition to the complex treatment of osteochondrosis. With regular sessions, pain in the neck, neck, shoulders disappears, dizziness and headaches disappear, the level of inflammation decreases, spasms disappear, muscles become toned.
• Hypertension. With the right technique, there is a decrease in blood pressure and an improvement in the general well-being of the patient. However, there are some features of the session for hypertensive patients: the duration of the procedure shouldn’t exceed 15 minutes, you need to massage the neck while sitting or standing, at a pressure above 170 it’s better to make the massage in another day.
