Pain in the nape of the neck and shoulder is one of the most common problems people encounter. And there is no age to the occurrence of this pain. I remember having these pains in my pre-teens. And the remedy ranged from putting a beladona plaster to lying on a hard round utensil all night which put pressure on the pain.
Recently we concluded the Basic Marma Chikitsa Coaching Programme in Bangalore. I had a participant who had pain in the nape of the neck and shoulders. He mentioned that his pain was a everyday occurrence and he found it difficult to manage it. He was actually putting up with his pain. He had his wife with him.
I did a 30 second Marma Chikitsa procedure and his pain reduced considerably. I repeated the procedure and this time the pain vanished.
Then, I wanted him to let us know the reason for his pain.
This man was a team lead in a software company. He has his deadlines to adhere to. Its a high pressure job responsibility he is managing. Now, that is not the cause of his pain.
His pain begins whenever he has to listen to his team mates complain with reasons about why something can’t be done. When the reasons are frivolous and annoying, and when he continues to listen, the combination of what he is listening to and his internal reaction creates his pain.
Removing such pain is easy. Here is the way to remove such pain.
Here is the procedure if you are doing it to someone else:
1. Make the person sit straight and facing you
2. Reach out to the bulb like protrusion behind the person’s ears
3. Now rotate outward 3 times and just move your hands down the person’s neck and on the shoulders
4. That’s it. You probably would want to repeat this another time.
Here’s a short video in which I demonstrate the process.
