It's not difficult to get stiff or painful shoulders - especially when sitting down at work all day. Here's a simple massage method to help relieve that a bit.

All you need is one towel. Lie on your back, and place a folded towel underneath one of your shoulders. Then, hold the shoulder with the towel laid underneath using the arm where the towel is not placed. Hold this position for 10 seconds while breathing in and out deeply. The user who uploaded this video is adamant that this method works really well.
