Did you know that for every inch your head moves forward of your neck and shoulders it adds an effective weight of 10lbs?
So if your head is jutting forward of your shoudlers 2 inches, the muscles which hold your skull to your neck bones are working as if they were carrying an extra 20lbs!
The head was designed to sit directly on top of the neck, stacked head, neck, shoudlers, hips, feet. With all the time we spend looking at phones, computers, driving and many other activities, chances are your head is forward a lot more than you realize
An easy way to help release tension in the back of the neck is to roll out the suboccipital muscles (the ones that join the skull to the top vertberae).
A pair of #yogatuneuptherapyballs will do the trick - place them just under the suboccipital bump, then rest your head on balls on block / stack of books / or a slightly raised surface.
Nod your head a little, shake it slowly side to side - gentle movements.
What do you feel?
