• Massaging your neck

     

    • Sit on a stool or chair, with your thighs, legs and ankles joined and your feet very solid on the floor.
    • Slowly turn your head to the right and then to the left, and then back into its axis.
    • Does your head turn better on one side than the other?
    • Keep your mouth partly open ; inhale normally through the nose and exhale through the mouth.
    • With three fingers of the right hand, grasp the top of your neck. Grasp firmly the skin and muscles that begin there.
    • On expiration,  turn your head slightly as if to say ‘’yes’’.
    • Then a little lower, grasp the skin and muscles and lower your head again on expiration.
    • Continue to do this along the neck to the seventh cervical vertebra.
    • Turn your head once more to the right and to the left, and compare if this movement is easier to do than before.
