The muscles in this region, including the trapezius, levator scapulae, and rhomboids, are often overused and can become tight and painful.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Effleurage is advisable for the neck area.
    B. Deep kneading is advisable for around the shoulder area.
    C. Friction massage is applied to muscle release points.
    Explanation
    Effleurage is a gentle stroking technique that is commonly used in massage therapy to relax the muscles and increase blood flow. It is particularly beneficial for the neck area, as it helps to relieve tension and promote relaxation in this sensitive area.

    Deep kneading is a more intense technique that involves applying pressure and manipulating the muscles with the hands or fingers. This technique is often used around the shoulder area, where tension and tightness are common. Deep kneading helps to loosen and stretch the muscles, providing relief from pain and discomfort.

    Friction massage is a technique that involves applying pressure and circular movements to specific points on the muscles. This technique is particularly effective for targeting muscle release points, where tension and knots may be present. Friction massage helps to break down adhesions and improve flexibility in the muscles.

    It is important to keep pressure away from the thyroid gland during a back and neck massage, as excessive pressure on this sensitive area can cause discomfort and potentially harm the gland.
