The Small Intestine type of neck, shoulder and jaw pain is caused by stagnant QI (vital energy) and Blood along the energetic channel of the Small Intestine. This is caused by physical or mental/emotional imbalances in the Heart and Small Intestine. Poor sleep, digestive problems, sadness, inability to let go of harmful states of mind, poor body posture, and repetitive movements due to work or sports are among the most common reasons causing imbalances in the Small Intestine channel.
