In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
