    Hello everybody!
    I have just had a request from a client who says he has a crunchy neck and wants a massage as he feels it might help . I had lots of people with a tight neck , and the massage actually helped them but never had anyone with a crunchy neck and as I'm not sure what is the cause of it (might be a herniated disc , although that would come with much more serious syptoms ).
    Could anyone give me any advice please .
    Thank you

    Will be interested to know about this one. My neck gets all crunchy from poor posture at the pc and my main income is me sat on me bum in front of one for near 12 hours a day. My neck gets worse if I'm stressed and have wondered whether some massage would help untangle the muscle knots that must be causing it.

    I guess as long as your client has got the ok from his/her GP to receiving massage then I think it could probably help.

    couple of things it could be, could be severe arthritis and literally the biones rubbing together, but they would be in awful pain. The other more liely thing is a build up of scar tissue and fluid around the joint which literally causes a crunchy sensation but is just immobility. if they dont have any red or yellow flags give massage a go!
