How it works


This is a pretty simple one, recommended to me by my chiropractor (who is also an acupuncturist). If you have a muscle spasm in your neck, or just achey muscles, try sleeping with a folded towel wrapped around your neck, scarf style. Essentially, you want to fold the towel to be about the same width and thickness as a neck brace, and use it as if it were one. (If you happen to have a neck brace on hand I imagine you could just use that while you sleep!)

Want to try

Timely! Last week, I woke up with a stiff neck for the first time in YEARS. An adjustment and massage later, I'm feeling much better, but will definitely be trying this as well. Thank you for sharing!

My husband went to the doctor because of a stiff, sore neck and the doctor recommended he wear a neck brace at night. They are $10 on Amazon and it has been life changing. It took a few nights to adjust to sleeping with the brace, but his neck is feeling SO MUCH better!!
