A stiff neck can be the end of your day. Once the stiffness takes hold, you’re essentially immobile and most likely in serious pain, too much to go about your day-to-day activities. Well, no more! Now you can take back the power by stopping stiffness in its tracks. There’s no need for expensive treatments or invasive surgeries, all you need to banish neck stiffness is a single towel. Can it be that easy? Prepare to be surprised.
Not only does this treatment require only a towel, but it only takes about 10 seconds to complete! It just gets better and better.
Chinese YouTube channel, care4body, shares with us how to execute this technique and just how well it works. Although you can only understand the conversation being held if you speak Chinese (which, sadly, we do not), it’s not difficult to see how effective this method works. The look on this woman’s face before and after speaks volumes!
At the start of the video, the young woman is lying flat down on her back with a look of serious pain on her face. Anyone who has experienced stiffness in their neck can understand what she’s going through at that moment. (Spoiler alert, it’s not fun.)
One of the people in the room with her takes a folded towel and lifts up her left shoulder. Gently, he sticks the towel under her shoulder, elevating it maybe six inches off the table. He then instructs her to breathe deeply, which she does for about ten seconds.
When the towel is removed from behind her shoulder, the girl gets a miraculous grin on her face. She touches her neck like she can’t believe she’s pain-free – and it’s not just on that one side. The young woman touches both shoulders as if she’s completely relieved, and the ultimate proof is on her face. Besides her grinning and laughing, you can see that she has made a complete 180 from the painful state she was in at the start of the video.
