Explore postures and movements that provide a gentle and loving stretch to the upper back body!

Suffer from tension headaches? Tension headaches can truly impact your quality of life, especially if they become chronic. Tension headaches are the most common type of headache. Tension headaches occur when the neck and/or scalp muscles contract. Muscle contraction can be the result of stress, anxiety, or an injury to the neck or head. Tension headaches can also be due to poor sleeping habits, poor posture, dental problems, eye strain, fatigue, etc. I hope these stretches help!

Counteract the effects of “text neck.” When we look down at our phones, our head enters a “forward head posture.” We may notice that our chin pokes out, our shoulders round forward and we begin to round through our back body. Our head weighs A LOT! The average head weighs 11 pounds. This can strain our neck and back muscles. We may end up experiencing neck discomfort and pain when we look down at our phones for long periods of time or if it becomes a habit. Bookmark this video! Enjoy 🙏
Our necks tend to carry a lot of tension! This can be simply due to repetitive habits, such as looking down at our cell phones.

The beauty of this practice is that we can do these exercises ANYWHERE! You can do these neck exercises while watching TV, sitting at a desk, at work and on the go. Enjoy!
