Some: It depends on what is causing the neck pain. If it muscular then it has a better chance of helping then if the pain is due to a disc problem or arthritis.

Variable: It is highly variable. Some patients get a lot of relief, others very little. If the pain is due mainly (only) due to muscle spasm, massage should be a big help.
