First, begin with the sternocleidomastoid muscle, which is found on either side of your neck running from your ears to your shoulders. Begin massaging downward with your fingers, starting with a little tension and building up. Spend at least 60 seconds massaging these muscles.
Next, stretch your neck and chin. Begin by placing your hand on your chest as though you’re pulling down on your skin. Next, raise your chin and put your jaw toward the ceiling for a second or so. You should feel the muscles that you’re engaging. Using one-second intervals, move your chin back and forth for 20 seconds.
Relax your tongue root by pressing your thumb against it on the underside of your chin with your thumbs. Keep up the pressure for 30 seconds.
