What is the best way to relieve stress knots in your shoulders and back?

My shoulder and back knots up as a result of stress, the pain is unbearable at times and I have no way to release it.

While some people may suffer from tension headaches, some of us get the pain in our neck and back. One of the best ways to relieve the pain is through a hot bath or massage, better yet by avoiding it. Light stretches and exercise can not only provide relief but may help prevent this.

The best way of course is to get some one to give you a good neck, back and shoulder massage. If that is not possible you can get a massaging device at a department store that can reach that area and try to massage it yourself. You might want to go to a doctor.

I recommend seeing an Active Release specialist. They strive to fix messed up backs as opposed to masseuses who do that some but are mostly about helping you relax.

The best way I have found is to lie in a warm bath. After bath apply heating pad while lying down and take aspirins. I also use a TENS machine
