Do you massage yourself?

My occupital nerves are irritated 馃槚

Occupital??? If it's in the back of your neck on either side, that would be occipital, just under the occiput. So, someone is being the proverbial "pain in the neck" for you - - - - - but I digress - - - -

Yes, I do use some massage techniques on myself. I will use rollers to do back and leg stretching, direct work on my calves (gastrocs). I have recently added a small ultrasound unit- (the warming one, not the imaging one). I've also added a percussion massager. I deliberately sought the one with the shortest stroke: it doesn't really need a long stroke to be effective. I'll use that on my forearms when I do massage too long each day. (I'm in nearly year #30 doing Massage Therapy).

Not usually. Even with a massage gun that I received as a gift. Just feels weird/awkward massaging myself

@Ambroseguy80 I have to, my muscles get all spastic sometimes

@Nebula makes sense. Do you own the massager tool?

I have a back-massage seat-cushion.

Unfortunately, it gives me the same massage every time. But it usually feels good after a few passes, and I do not care anymore.
Sometimes especially my hands or feet. It's hard to massage my neck myself but I do sometimes. I usually just stretch though.

I choke myself

@SirBenedictTheSecond whatever works
Yup, I broke my arm in 2009 (have a plate) and massage my left wrist several times a day, my palm and thumb have no feeling, but I can move it OK....

I hope you feel better soon, I have that issue and it landed my butt in the E.R. last weekend!! "Pain took my sight"..... scarrrrrrry!
Yes, sometimes. I usually massage my own legs and feet and my injured hand.

Of course those nerves 馃. You need one of those massage chairs.
Yes sometimes
