These are often brought on by poor posture and stress.
Since we are in lockdown, you may not have the best workstation set up and this can put extra stress on the upper neck, and ultimately lead to more tension and tightness in the area.
When I see people for this issue, I often spend time doing some soft tissue work on the muscles in the area. Most people like this and find it to be quite effective.
Since I can’t see you in person at the moment; the technique I show in this video is the next best thing and something you can easily try at home.

P.S. If you are suffering from tightness in the upper neck, I find that using heat is another super effective way of easing the tension. Apply the heat for 20 minutes, then leave off for 20 minutes before re-applying. The best way to apply the heat is in the ‘static back’ position. Watch till the end of the video to see how to do this.
