A grounding practice that gives you effective learning tools for nervous system care, pain management, and finding ease while the body is in a stress response. This episode uses a rocking motion often associated with self soothing and we continue our look at neck care by zooming out to the whole system. This Feldenkrais approach to Neck Care connects the ankles, the pelvis, and the whole self to how the neck moves. It might seem like your ankles or feet would have nothing to do with your neck tension. So, let’s find out! If there is tension or a lot of pain in the neck, focusing only there and bringing more and more of your attention to the place that hurts may not always be a wise idea!
If you resonate with TODAY’s approach or are finding that your neck pain may be linked to jaw tension, for an even deeper study of this topic from a Feldenkrais lens, you can check out the:
Sensing Subtlety and Satisfaction Jaw Series, and
Unraveling Body Anxiety Feldenkrais Series.
