Optimal Head and Neck Alignment

    By Kelly Dean

    Our head weighs 12-15 lbs so when it is not aligned with our torso it puts a lot of strain on the muscle of our neck and it encourages our upper body to follow and round or shift to support that weight. Aligning your head so that your neck is elongated and your ears are aligned over your shoulders can take a tremendous strain off of your body. We have a lot of lifestyle demands that encourage our head to look down or reach forward. Creating strategies to improve this throughout the day as well as releases to balance out muscle imbalances around the neck is the goal of this lesson.
