Physiotherapist Charissa Fermelis shares a stretch for your neck and shoulders.
1. Begin by taking a few deep breaths in and out to centre your energy and calm your thoughts.
2. Place one hand behind your back to anchor that shoulder in place.
3. Allow your head to tilt gradually to the opposite side, guiding your ear to your shoulder. You’ll feel a stretch down the side of the neck.
4. Intensify the stretch by placing your free hand on your head and applying a comfortable pressure. If you rotate your nose down to your shoulder you’ll notice the stretch creeps a little further around to the back of the neck.
This stretch can be conveniently performed periodically throughout the day. Rather than sitting on the floor, take a moment at your work desk to move your neck and relieve built up tension. Set a regular reminder on your computer calendar or phone to alert you to stretch.
