Stretching Neck and Shoulders

  • Bring the top of your shoulders toward your ears until you feel some tension. Hold this pose for three to five seconds before relaxing into your normal sitting position. Repeat this stretch two or three times.
  • While sitting or standing – without lifting your chin – glide your head straight back. (If you feel like you’re giving yourself a “double chin,” you’re doing this stretch correctly.) Hold for 20 counts and repeat five to 10 times.
  • Slowly drop your head to the left, trying to touch your left ear to your shoulder. Hold and then repeat on the right side.
  • Placing your hands behind your head, squeeze your shoulder blades together.
