Relieve Upper Body Pain and Tension with Self-Massage for Forward Head Posture

Last month, I wrote about the high prevalence of forward head posture, and the resulting tissue damage and pain conditions. Now we're going to treat it!

Forward head posture is a position so many of us find ourselves in these days, as we round over our computers and phones. The head comes forward and the neck hyperextends, putting strain on the spine, upper back, shoulders, neck, and head.

Over time, this posture can lead to headaches, neck spasms, upper back pain, shoulder pain and stiffness, limited range of motion in the neck, shoulders, and upper back, disc bulges or herniations, spinal stenosis, shoulder impingements, difficulty breathing fully, and the list goes on.

Join me for this easy, effective, and relaxing self-massage to reduce forward head posture and alleviate upper body tension. For long lasting results, practice this self-massage a few times a week, and adjust your work space to be ergonomically optimal for your body.

We also had lunch at our favorite pizza place, and tried to remember the last time we went to a museum or restaurant. It's been a while.

Sienna is turning 9 this month! She has been making videos nearly nonstop. Every place is a film set, every person a character in her stories. I do my best to help out, but when my alarm goes off at 6:30 a.m. and I hear, "Mom! I need to film you right now," well ...
