What a pain in the neck! It’s the end of the week, and chances are you might be carrying stress in your neck and shoulders. Neck tension is uncomfortable and relaxing with a neck roll can feel like the next best thing to a massage, but it’s important to do it the right way to avoid any chance of injuring yourself.

The way most of us roll our necks – a complete circle that we probably learned back in gym class – is actually not the safest way. In today’s video, our fitness intern Shannon demonstrates the right way to stretch your neck in order to take care of your spine and still get a great stretch. Take a look! And let us know, how will you relax this weekend?

    That looks very similar to one of the cool down stretches I remember learning when I was taking Yoga. I always wondered why they taught kids to full a head roll.

    Nothing profound…I just wanted say how much we miss Shannon here at Green Mountain.

    I’m sure she’s spreading her sunshine down on other lucky ladies somewhere in the country. Lucky ducks, you are!
