He lubricates my skin, messages my neck and back, then gently turns my head from side
while pulling my head which stretches the muscles in
my neck and back (sounds odd, but this really helps). He can usually feel what we call "crunchies" in my neck. This has gone on for a year. I've been told these are caused by spasms, but noone has ever felt a spasm in my back. Odd, but, with hubby able to give me short term relief, I've just learned to live with it.
