Most of us experience neck, shoulder, and upper back pain to varying degrees, so I've made a video series to meet you wherever you are on the spectrum.
Part 3 of 3 offers even deeper front body stretches and stronger exercises for the back so that you can easily stand in correct alignment and FINALLY be free of your pain in the neck. Hallelujah!
But this is a strong one! There’s no reward, only potential pain, if you jump ahead too fast. So be honest with yourself as you explore Part 3. You can always start at Parts 1 and 2 until you are truly ready for this more advanced sequence.
Watch my video Good Pain vs Bad Pain so you know you’re working safely.
Stretching in the wrong places and ignoring certain pain signals can lead to permanent damage, especially in the shoulder area. This video gives you the knowledge you need to progress confidently and safely through this series.

Start Your Healing Journey
I want to help you heal from illness, injury, and pain. You're probably tired of living with pain, you may have even tried a few things and had some temporary relief - but it always comes back!
Perhaps, you haven't yet found the root source of your pain and discomfort. That's where my self-assessment quiz comes in.
This quiz will ask you a series of questions that will enable you to focus your energy and attention to the most likely source so you can begin to heal, grow, and thrive!
I show you how to find your tight spots. Then we release them through self-massage and a series of stretches that require nothing more than a wall, a kitchen sink (or park bench, etc), and a blanket or two. Do these regularly and you’ll be ready to progress to Part 2.
In Part 2 we focus on deeper stretches so we can move the bones into proper alignment. If you start to strengthen around misaligned bones you may well create a whole new set of problems, mostly in the form of joint pain. So spending time to get the bones in their proper places is an absolutely critical part of this process.
You will need a yoga bolster/pile of firm blankets and a yoga strap/leash/long scarf. Links for props are at the end of this post.
Now, to state the super obvious – if you don’t stop the bad habits that create the problem, this process will be long, frustrating, and possibly futile. For tips on identifying and fixing your posture problems, please watch my Easy Fixes for Bad Posture video.
As always, reach out to me with any questions. I know some of you are working with injuries or other special considerations and may need some variations on what I offer in these videos. I am happy to help! Contact Me
